It sounds as if your machine needs a little oiling. If you have a clear machine oil (not 3 in 1). place a drop in the bobbin case area and if you will notice, you will see small holes on the bed and on the top of the machine. place a drop of oil into each of these holes. If you can take the top and bottom covers off, you can put a drop of oil every where you see a hole..some of the machines actually have the oil holes painted a red color. Also place a drop at the handwheel as well. Just remember when oiling, less is better. After oiling, run for a few minutes, if you feel it still needs a litte more, do the same, one drop at a time. After this, if you machine sets for a while, oil just before starting to sew, that way when you put the machine away the oil has been worked through and it should help prevent the squeaking when starting up again.

I need manual for singer machine model #50t8 e99670


Singer Sewing Machine labels are printed in a confusing manner. E99670 50T8 is not the actual Model Number. The actual Model Number is the first 4 digits on the line with the Serial Number. In my case, the Model Number is1525, even though E99670 50T8 appears on the label at "Model Number". This machine was also labeled with other 4 digit model numbers too, depending on when it was manufactured. Using the Singer link for either free downloadable manuals, or paid paper manuals, search for the correct 4 digit model number and the resulting correct manual is there. Link below for manuals :

Looking for singer sewing machine manual g2048733 I believe it is 1911


The g2048733 is the serial number and was built in 1912, actually. (1911 is not the model number.) To get the manual, you need the model number. This should be on a plaque on the front of the machine; it may be just above the base on the belt side. (Singer made 40 models as of 1900.) If the plaque is missing, contact 1-800-4-SINGER (1-800-474-6437) to translate the serial number into a model number.

With the model number, you can get a manual here: http://www.singerco.com/accessories/instruction-manuals . Here you can download or purchase manuals depending on the machine.

If you add a comment with the model number, I will be glad to provide the direct link to the manual. I hope this helps.

Kenmore sewing ma. model #17922 has a differnet model # for parts


Hi. The issue is probably because 17922 is only part of the model number. Your missing the prefex 385 which makes this model number actually a 385.17922. All Kenmores have a prefex before the actual model number. Other prefixes were 117 , 158 .
Hope this helps .
