SOURCE: Singer/merritt 2430 bobbin fill

If you lift up the thread holder, the bobbin holder is inside. Loosen the hand guide to stop the needle from going up and down. Pull the thread around the top thread guide and back into the bobbin holder. Thread the bobbin and move the bobbin over so the guage is "inside" the bobbin. As for the manual, the Singer Merritt 2404 is applicable to the 2430 if that helps.

Do I need to oil my singer merritt sewing machine. I have a manual but it says nothing about oiling it.


If it is a computerized sewing machine, they are usually self-contained and do not require oiling except as directed or by a technician.

If it an older mechanical machine, generally they do need regular oiling to keep them running in fine shape.

Wheel on right side that controls the needle up and down is very tight...

Where would I oil a singer Merritt 4530 model machine


Singer has the manual for the Merritt 4530 on their manuals site: http://www.singerco.com/support/instruction-manuals . The direct link to the manual is http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/437_5_6_8_10_slide.pdf . See page 44 for the picture of the points were you should apply sewing machine oil. You'll need to oil 8 points under the face plate on the left side of the machine. Most are places on the needle bar shaft. There are a few connected to the thread take up lever. If you move the hand wheel, you will see most of the points that need lubrication.

I hope this helps.

Should I trade my Singer Merritt 3130 for Brothers JX2517


A: You asked, "Should I trade my Singer Merritt 3130 for Brothers JX2517". Ultimately, it is up to you, as to whether you prefer the more vintage aspects of the Singer-Merritt 3130, or the sewing feel you get from the newer Brother JX2517. If you have been sewing on a Singer-Merritt 3130 which is in proper adjustment for some time and you are used to the sound and feel of this heavier machine, I think you will have more than half the answer already.
However, do compare your Singer Merritt 3130 it to the Brother JX2517. Though I have not used that particular model Brother, I have sewn on several modern "plastic" Brothers, that all sewed very well (most Brothers are great machines), but were all much louder and more rattly than the three Singer Merritt models I own (two Models 4552 (the first one I owned quickly became my favorite GO-TO machine for most tasks) plus one more modern "plastic" Singer Merritt 9618, that I was quite impressed with too, though it is a different ball game.
The Brother JX2517, looks as if it has a lot of bells and whistles, and does 17 stitch patterns and a 4-Step Buttonhole; it might be OK for you, but you must do some sewing tests with both. Because this Brother it is a modern machine, it won't take much maintenance, but if something goes wrong you probably will not be able to fix it yourself, and will need to take it into a repair shop (where, unfortunately, they may just want to sell you the next new model they have in stock).
When it gets down to really sewing, the added fancy stitches will not matter to you at all. What you will want is a machine that lays the stitches down where you want them, predictably and reliably without missing a stitch, jamming or fouling. Try them side by side without the pressure of a salesman standing over you, nibbling your ear and praising the new machine and pointing out the limitations of your old machine. Test sewing on very thick folds of denim and also on very thin layers of cotton, rayon or even silk, but mostly test the type of stuff you usually sew. Look closely at the stitches, if either machine does not produce nearly perfect stitches, then you cannot make a decision right then, that is not until both have been properly adjusted to sew nearly perfect stitches (which I am sure both can be so adjusted). Only when both machines are sewing at their best, can you really compare the two for the finer details.
Try closing your eyes to just "Listen" and "Feel" each machine as it sews, but don't get your fingers caught ! Which machine would you enjoy sewing with in the long run. The answer should be clear, but if not, there is always another option.
ALTERNATIVE: If you are still not sure which is better for you, and if you are still hell-bent to buy yourself a new toy, then don't "Trade In" your Singer Merritt 3130, but instead Bargain with the Salesman or Owner, to get them to give you the "Trade-In Discount", without giving up your old machine. I did this on a new Singer CG590, but be careful, you may end up with more sewing machines than you have room for. Keep sewing.
Sincerely,

I have a Singer 4552. The cord inside top of machine that moves when I turn the stitch pattern selector knob has a spring on the end. The spring came undone. What/where does the spring attach to?


Here is the link for your manual. You can either look for it online here or download the entire manual. Good luck. http://www.manualslib.com/manual/154097/Singer-4552.html#manual

At one point I was sewing throug thick material and I guess it caused the needle to bend and then break. Now it happens all the time and it is difficult to get the bobbin thread to come up...the needle...


Are you sure that all of the needle pieces are out of there? Take off the throat plate, and clean up the area with an old toothbrush. You will be surprised at how much lint is there. Just taking out the bobbin case does not get all of the lint out. Then oil it after your good cleaning. I think that you have a Singer Merritt, and they are tough old girls, she may even need a tune up if that doesn't work. Don't we all? It may be well worth you money to invest in it, the new ones aren't as good as the older machines, fancier, maybe but not necessarily better.
