How long has it been since being thoroughly cleaned and oiled? Usually, older mechanical machines will slow when the oil turns to glue and begins to bind the moving parts. Frequently, you will also notice that the motor appears to be straining to run the machine. If this is the problem, continued use could damage the motor.

When following manual directions to wind a bobbin, it starts out OK, but after several winds, the thread turns out with little loops on the bobbin. ??? Sylvia

Make sure that you are running the thread through the winder tension guide before it goes bobbin winder. Best to consult your owner's manual.

Also, it helps to slow down the winding process. Slower speed winds the bobbin more consistently and does not stretch the thread as much as a fast speed will.

I have a singer 247 it was sewing really good but started going slower and slower til it stopped could it be the motor

It is more likely that a bushing internally warms up then seizes partially. A good cleaning and lubrication could solve this. To test the motor remove the drive belt and run the motor with no load, see if it slows down if not see idea above.

Take it back. This should not be happening.
