Question about Singer Sewing Machines

I need to load the bobbin for my singer 247, I have no manual

I was given a Singer Model 247 Sewing machine with no instruction manual. I can thread the bobbin, but I can't figure out how to load the bobbin and thread it so the needle picks up the thread. Can you help me with this ? Also, your site says user manuals are available for free download, but I couldn't figure out how to do that either.

Thanks,
Rico

I am a veteran seamstress and I may be able to help you. it sounds as though you just have the wrong needle in the machine or the needle is in backwards.. Machine needles are different lengths according to what machine it is. The needle could also be dull on the point. Try this and see if it helps. Also your local sew shop can help you no charge if you just go in and talk with them. The techs enjoy helping for the most part I have discovered.

How to thread the bobbin in the machine


You didn't mention the model you have, so it's impossible to answer that question.

However, if you will go to the Singer Sewing Machine website, you can download your user's manual for free, and that should help you.

Try using a style 60 or 66 bobbin. I had the same problem at first, and someone on-line suggested the different bobbin. I use a style 66; instead of having a flat bottom and top (and all those holes), it's shaped something like a bagel. Now my machine works beautifully.

Threading Singer 247 bobbin, no manual


Slot A looks like a groove in the front of the bobbin housing just pull the thread to the right and then to the left to get it into groove A, groove B is to the left of A when you pull it into A it will slip into B. You then just pull the thread forward and you are good to go. I hope this makes sense. I can try to take a picture of mine and see if I can get a clear picture if you still need help.
