I need the singer sewing machine model 5050 owners manual

You can download a free pdf file from the Singer Website, link is, type in the search field your model number "5050" and click "search", wait for the screen to build, it will take a few seconds but you should see a "free download" link to click, again wait for the pdf file to open up, then save it to your PC, print it out and bind it in covers if you can.
Hope this helps you out. Most Singer and White manuals are available on the Singer website.

How do you put the zipper foot on the singer model 5050 sewing machine?

Most machines have clip on feet these days. But best to refer to your manual to be sure.

go to and type in your model number to see if it is available as a download, most are there.

Usually the feet clip on and off but some machines have zipper foot that is a long piece allowing you to measure the button and stitch a button hole to suit it. Best explained in a manual though as there are several steps usually.

What is the part that holds on the spool of thread called on a Singer 5050?

Do you have a manual?
I checked the online manual available on the Singer site for your model and the part you mention is called a Horizontal spool pin and holder.
If you would like a copy of the manual go to the Singer site:
Type in 5050 and click on Search.
On the next page click on Free download!
Hope this helps!

Unless you want to deal with the little screws to take it apart, you may take it to an authorized singer service dealer. Look in your local yellow pages under sewing machines.

Go to

There's a "free download" option there - I used "5050" for the model number, the "C" seemed to confuse the search engine.

Singer 5050 zipper foot

No, the foot has nothing to do with the stitch quality. Your machine is jamming up, check your upper tension. It should be set between 3-5. Make sure the dial has not changed by mistake.
