Question about Singer Sewing Machines

1 Answer

I have been given an old electric Singer sewing machine. On the plate is the number (so far as I can make out) C869290. When I plug it in, the drive wheel spins without the foot pedal being depressed. Is there a manual, or copy of, available and are spare parts available for older models? Thanks

What year is my Singer sewing machine? The serial number is 32D6350.

It is possible that it was made between 1851-1860. Records for them are not available. From what I see on the site numbers are either all number or start with 1 or 2 letters. The plates have also been changed around from place to place. Mine is 1920's and plate is at on the base of the support. Not sure if they can help you but I did see a phone number on their site at bottom of this page.
