I need a manual for a JCPenney Model 6601. Or at least how to thread it.


Back in my 7th grade home ec class (I'm 52 yo now), our teacher told us that all machines thread basically the same and I never forgot that and it has served me well through the years. No matter what brand of machine, or level of machine (from little girls first one, my embroidery or my heavy duty industrial leather machine) they have all threaded the same:
Thread spool
thread guide
thread guide
tension
take up lever
thread guide
thread guide
needle
(the number of thread guides may vary)
Best of luck and happy sewing!

Riccor model 939FA thread keeps breaking, not shure if it is threaded correctly, manual lost years ago, thread has been nesting on bottom of material, now just breaking.


Try looking for a manual for your machine here.

If your model number isn't listed try looking for a similar model or the number nearest to your machine.
Usually, sewing machines of the same brand thread in the same way. Hope this helps!

Owner's manual


I found a website for you that might help. They have a lot of kenmore manuals including one similiar to your model#148.12051. The manual opened as model 1205 so maybe searching for your model as the 1201 might help too. hope this helps! =)

I was given an Elna Supermatic 722010 and am not sure how to wind the bobbin.


A link to a supermatic manual is here
http://www.arizonaexpressionz.com/elna_instruction_manuals/Supermatic.pdf - I suggest you download this and print it out as this machine is over 50 years old now and manuals are scarce.

Disengage the clutch by holding the outside of the fly wheel and turning the inner knob of the wheel towards you.
You need to take the thread from the spool across to an eyelet on top left, then back to the bobbin winder, up through a hole in the top of the bobbin and hold the thread tail. Flick the bobbin across against the stopper. Now press the presser foot or knee control to start the motor. Hold the thread tail until youve got coverage across the bobbin enough to hold the start, then stop winding and cut the thread tail with scissors. Now continue winding but put the handle of your scissors on top of the thread spool to stop it bouncing and ensure your thread winds smoothly and under tension.

Watch the bobbin fill and give the thread a nudge to fill top and bottom as well as the middle evenly, you want a nice even wind. Fill to 3/4 and stop, flick bobbin back off the stopper, then cut the thread. Remember to re-engage the clutch by reversing the first step.

This is a lovely heirloom Elna machine - you need to thread the bobbin as the manual describes and get the thread into the tension spring. Please read the manual information on oiling too, this machine needs to be oiled on the red spot locations every time you use it according to the manual, use good quality clear sewing machine oil for this purpose.

Old sewing machine, no owners manual


I got the same machine when I was 12 years old and still use it today. Try adjusting the tension - it's the know with number 0-9. To decrease tension turn it to the left. To increase tension turn it to the right.

On the side of the bobbin case is a screw that also can be turned with a small screw driver to increase or decrease tension the same way as mentioned above.

If you send an email to me at rhonda_1961@yahoo.com I can see about getting a copy of the manual to you. It doesn't have the cover but everything else is there.

Inserting needle on old singer machine


Hi Terry--

If your machine is 40-50 years old, it might be a Singer Featherweight portable. (If it is, you have one of the very best machines ever made!) On the Featherweights, the flat of the needle faces left (and the needle is threaded from right to left). The bobbin goes in a bobbin case; you'll see a small notch when you look down on the bobbin in the case. That's where the thread goes. I'll email you direct with more information.
