Singer 7442 the bobbin casing keeps popping out of position. how do it fix it?
When that happens, it is generally because it was not inserted correctly, and that's easy enough to do. Another possibility is the thread is not threaded properly
First, go to the Singer site and download your machine's manual -- it's free. A bobbin case has a flat part that goes under the needle. On the right side towards the bottom, it has a tab that sticks out that must rest against a spring, and prevents the case from spinning -- it must be stationary when sewing. When inserting a bobbin case, I find it helpful to put it down slightly to the right, then twist it so the flat part is under the needle, and the tab is resting against the spring. Also, verify that the case is even on all sides -- it's quite possible to insert it so that it's not resting flat in the basket (holds the case). You have to look closely to see it, though. There's drawings of it in your manual.

The thread bunches up under
Soulds like you did not get the upper thread in the tension unit when you threaded it. Try this, thread your machine all the way to the needle but not in the needle eye. After you do this lift the presser foot up and down, you should have tension with the presser foot down and no tension when it is up. If this is not the case your machine is out if adjusment.
Hope this helps
