Question about Singer Sewing Machines
According to the repair guy who serviced my machine, I need to replace the ''hook and cam'' on Singer 211G165, which, looking at the parts manual seems to be 240557 and 240167, or the entire mechanism 240560. The repair guy gave me a part number 267357. I need to know for sure which part to search for.
I would also like to restore the knee lift option, 228710, but do not know if I would need anything else to make it work. Thanks for any help you can provide.

Fill a bobbin: thread goes from spool, to front (nearest you) side of the tension post (the chrome cylindrical gadget about 3/8" diameter, with an upper and lower half - the thread slips in between the halves) on top left of the machine, clockwise around the post, then to the rear side of the bobbin and around it.

Years ago, my second Singer  foot control "went", out of warranty. Singer weren't very good with parts for older models, and the sewing machine guy had to find another foot control and I had to do a lot of rewiring.
Anyway, if you go Online and look for your local Singer stockist, the part number should be there.

"16. When dismantling the rotary hook (left turn screw ) or replacing it, the boring of the hook, its pinion as well as the 2 thread release cams must be lubricated with Supergllss oil (Renotac) 458'180.
17. Generally, if not mentioned otherwise, the following hints may be of help for lubricating
- Use Tectyl oil 458'170 where only metallic parts are implemented, i.e. bushings.
- Use Supergllss (Renotac) 458'180 where metallic parts are working together with parts of synthetic material.
- Use Supergliss or Silicon oil 803'531 where only synthetic parts are in friction with each other.
- Do not use Molykote DX grease 458'460 (white) on parts made of Lexan like shells or handles.
- In these places, you may use Silicon grease 802'940 as well as on slides, pivots and similar friction points. "
However, I wouldn't dismantle the rotary hook unless you have experience with sewing machine repairs, being computerised these machines are quite different to a standard mechanical machine.
