Missing parts on singer sewing machine model 974 serial no. SH30010021

I just bought singer sewing machine 974 serial #SH30010021 in Kingston Jamaica from the Singer outlet on Constant Spring Road I have a number of problems 1) in the instruction manual page 24 threading the machine it shows a 10 step operation from thread to stringing needle BUT when I look on my machine the 9th step( for looping thread in groove just above needle)in the operation is missing. When I try to use the machine the thread breaks constantly It does not make sense to be rethreading the machine constantly 2) the needle thread tension dial --I vary it between 3 -4 1\2 but it starts of fine then the thread starts to tighten up after a few seconds 3) bobbin case /bobbin area --this seems to be a weak point in the manufacture of this particular model. I say this in comparing it to a Brother machine I used previously

    How can we get user manual for contessa 974


    I went to a site who has downloadable user manuals, they did not have one for a Singer contessa 974. Please be sure you have the correct number of this machine, and then call or otherwise ask the site administrator for the manual. You could also try the Singer site looking for the correct model number.

    I HAVE AQUIRED A SINGER SEWING MACHINE MODEL #9134 AND NEED A MANUAL AS WELL AS PARTS. I WOULD APPRECIATE SOME ASSISTANCE.


    A free, downloadable manual for the Singer #9134 can be found here: http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/lis_pdf/OWNM/1006499L.pdf
    Sears has an excellent, easy-to-use catalog of your machine's parts for sale. You can find those parts at: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Singer-Parts/Sewing-Parts/Model-9134/1232/1220000
    If you find that Sears is missing a part that you need, you can look up that part in this manual, record the serial number of the part, and continue your search at another authorized Singer retailer: http://parts.singerco.com/CPpartCharts/9_99999/9134.pdf
    Good luck with the refurbishment of your newly acquired Singer!
