SOURCE: Machine Threading

Sorry Barbara but it is impossible to give you a solution on here, there could be any amount of reasons why your machine will not sew, it needs looking at by a sewing machine tech or someone with a similiar machine.
Only other thing I can suggest, if it is a new machine you should have a user manual, very carefully and slowly start at the front of the manual and work carefully through everything step by step.
Best of luck
Rob

Try Sears. A lot of brands were similar back in those days (because they copied or re-badged other brands), so finding a threading diagram for an old Singer would probably be helpful.

Sears carries a lot of manuals for their machines, although usually not free. In the meantime, there are many threading videos that demonstrate machine threading. Machines of similar models will thread similarly.

Probably best to raise the presser foot when threading so the thread will seat in the tension disk.

Before trying to sew, be sure to oil your machine with fresh, good quality sewing machine oil. Open the top, the side near the needle bar, and turn it on its back to get the underside. Place a couple drops of oil every place that metal rubs on metal. Adding hot air from a handheld hairdryer will make the oil effective quicker.

Be sure to install a brand new needle and use good quality thread--not old or bargain bin variety!

On the top left, there is probably a push button. This is the presser foot pressure adjustment. When the machine is stored, this pop-up button should be released (press down on the outer ring). Being stored with the pressure full on will eventually compress the spring that provides the pressure. Also, be sure to store the machine with the presser foot in the down position (preferably on a piece of scrap fabric). Avoid running the machine with the presser foot in direct contact with the feed dogs as this will wear the feed dogs and also create grooves in the presser foot.

I inherided my mothers sewing machine, with no instruction book I can't figure out how to put thread on the bobbin


If, I were you, I would take to Sears, to the sewing machine department and have the salesman show me how to thread it and wind the bobbin. You can order a manual from Sears parts direct, if you don't have it.

Go to Sears and talk to their sewing machine dept, I am sure that the salesperson will explain it to you for free. You need to have instruction beyond a book. If, you cannot go to Sears, check with your neighbors, there has to be one that sews or your local high school, Home ec teacher. Good luck
