SOURCE: How do you thread a 9217 Singer Sewing maching?

First put a spool (thread catch to the bottom of the pin) on the spool pin and put the appropriate size cap on top. Then snap the thread into the guide on the top near the arrows. Draw the thread following the arrows, down and then up before coming down again to the needle. Then either use the threader or draw the thread through the needle so that the thread is coming down the groove of the needle.

Singer has the manual available on their support site. The direct link to the manual is . See page 5 if my description isn't clear. You can also order a copy by using the search feature here: .

I hope this helps.

Singer 9217 thread winds under bobbin instead of on bobbin

Make sure the bobbin is seated all the way on the winding pin. There may be an adjustment for it--a technician can probably fix it for you. However, you can also try lifting the thread with a pencil tip just before it winds onto the bobbin. Some of my machines wind the thread unevenly (more on the bottom than the top of the bobbin) and I balance it out by lifting it when winding.

I have been told that my machine is not worth fixing. I would like a second opinion. As I have just moved, I'd like the name and address of the nearest Elna dealer/repair service. My machine is only 4...

Hello Shirley. You were wise to seek a second opinion. Sadly, some technicians who do not know how to work on a particular brand will use the "not worth fixing" excuse. I believe this is the farthest thing from the truth. It appears that the nearest dealer is in Iowa City.

Here is a link to provide the dealer names, addresses, etc. Good luck!
