My class 66 singer bobbin has no notches to put the thread in... i have NO idea how to thread it. i have no problem winding, its just the sewing part. please help!!!

It sounds as the the actual bobbin CASE is missing from the machine. This is the part under the chrome slide cover that has a "dish " into which you drop your bobbin. The edge of the "dish" has a slot for the thread to go in and a slot where the thread lies after it has gone under the spring on the outside of the "dish". If it is missing I'm afraid you will need to source one before you can hope to sew.

Singer 144w305. Try to use reverse and the thread binds up under neath and breaks instantly. Take the belt off the machine spins free and easy by hand. Out belt back on and it is hard to turn by hand.

check the bobbin / needle thread tension.
IN most machines the reverse is just for the feed as the needle and bobbin still spin in the same direction

How do you thread a singer merritt 1872?

Wow, one of the few Singer machines that doesn't have a free download manual. Hmmm..... Ok looked up a photo of your machine. It's pretty easy.

1. raise your presser foot.
2. Put thread on spool pin.
3. draw thread over to and under from behind of the pre-tension disc at top
4. Draw thread down from the right and under the tension dial to seat the thread into the tension discs and flex that spring a little.
5. Through the take up lever.
6. Down through the thread guide.
7. Down through the needle bar thread guide.
8. Through the needle.

Hope that helps.

I am trying to use a singer featherweight II but I can't figure out how to thread the machine no manual

Is this a very old machine because the manual I"ve located doesn' look like the image on Fixya.

Try this link

Singer have various model manuals downloadable, you just need to search them at their website page

Trust this helps you out.

If you don't resolve the issue and this is a vintage machine, then there is some good user groups such as Vintage Singers under Yahoo where enthusiasts share info on their old machines. Good to lurk though or go through old threads first as there is often someone else who has asked similar question in the past. There may also be manuals in their files so have a dig around.

My stiches are loopy I think I need to change the settings but don't know how to set them

I think that you will find that it is your top threading or your needle. Put a new needle in with the flat side facing the rear of the machine, now totally rethread, according to your manual, with the presser foot up. When you have done that, leave the presser foot up, now pull the thread, it should feed smoothly, then put the presser foot down, pull the thread , now it should barely move. This usually seats the thread in the tension discs. If you do not have a manual, go to and download a free one under customer support. They also have great tips under customer support, frequently asked questions. Good luck
