I would spring for a tuneup. It is a machine and does need attention and if you like the machine, invest in it. You can download a free manual at www.singerco.com under customer support, and try oiling it and cleaning it out under the throat plate. Take a screw driver and take off the plate and use a brush to clean out the lint, that may be the problem but without seeing it, I don't know. You will be amazed at the lint that under there, looks like felt but it is not. Good luck.

Singer has manuals for most of their sewing machines available at their site. For the 2623, the manual is only available as a bound copy for $15. Go to http://www.singerco.com/accessories/instruction-manuals and enter the model number then click Search.
I believe on this model, you fill the bobbin with it on the metal pin on the top right of the machine. With a metal presser foot in place, bring the thread up and around the guide that pin. Wrap the thread a few times around the bobbin. Set the lever to the bobbin winding position and begin winding. Stop and trim the excess thread from your initial wraps after it is fully caught. Then complete winding the bobbin.
(On other Singer machines, you fill the bobbin in place with the bobbin cover moved halfway open.)
I hope this helps.

Hi. There are only a few models that have any significant value. If your machine is a feather weight, it could be worth anywhere from $100.00 to $1000.00. Try looking on E-bay to get an idea of what similar machines are selling for.

The Singer vintage machine site indicates that the AH251729 was made in 1947 in Elizabeth, NJ. For details see http://www.singermachines.co.uk/faq/tell-sewing-machine-age-from-two-letter-serial-number/ .
Look on the front of your sewing machine and locate the model number of the machine. Go to http://www.singerco.com/support/replacement-parts-chart and locate your model number. (Use the drop down menu and locate the group. Press Go and then find the pdf with the correct model parts list.) You can look up the exact part number and order them from the Singer Service Center online.
Alternatively, you may be able to find them at any Singer Authorized retailer. Just look at your machine and determine the type of shank that connects foot to the machine. (High Shank and Slant are common Singer foot designs on older machines.) Get a zigzag foot for Singer machines with that design. (If they don't have that, you can probably get a current foot and an adapter. We got an overedge foot and the high slant foot adapter for my Singer sewing machine (purchased in 1969) in the 1980s.)
I hope this helps.
(Singer parts are generally available. I saw throat plates for some Featherweight machines this morning at a quilt show.)
