These machines are like computers. The case splits.... but seriously.. these electronic machines are not for the regular home sewer to fix. Electroncis are dangerous and can kill you. Be safe and take it in. Have it cleaned, adjusted, timed etc., while you are in to have the belt fixed.

SOURCE: Singer model 4530. Squeels when rotated without

Sounds like the machine has gone dry of oil somewhere along the line, if you can get to all the moving parts I would try some WD40 everywhere especially if you can locate the squeal

How do I put a new belt on a Singer 99K?

loosen the bolt that holds the motor mount to the machine body and slide the motor up and the belt off. Replace belt with the same length belt and re-tighten motor mount bolt. The belt should not be too tight or it will slip, or generally run poorly.

How do i change the belt on my treadle singer sewing machine?

On a treadle sewing machine usually there is no adjustment on the tightness of the belt so you have to shorten it. There will be a metal clip holding the belt together and you can remove and cut the belt shorter and then put it back together. Be very careful to not cut too much off. Probably be a good idea to trim it a very little at a time.

Hi you can download a free manual from Singer.
Just type in 9960 in the search box and click on search.
It should give detailed instructions on winding a bobbin.
If this does not help, try this video from youtube:

Singer industrial sewing machine

It might be the way you're asking that's confusing the problem. It's simple to remove the hand wheel, slip the belt over the track, and then replace the hand wheel. It really depends on the model of your machine - is it by chance a 328K?
