Parts for 211G165

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.

My singer outer bobbin holder, three pieces, fell apart. How do I get it back together?

Was told, in the '70's, by a repair guy, that Singer does not provide service beyond 2 yrs of purchase.
I go to ebay, where I find Everything in the world... Suggest you look there. Good luck.

Singer 7256 hook timing off

Hi Sherri,
I'm not sure that's possible in this case. Unless we can get the measurements for this machine and the instruments needed to execute the adjustments you'd need, to set all the measurements it takes to make a sewing machine sew correctly and safely.
I have seen some master machine repair technicians do it by sight and feel. I would let the pros help me with this. Yelp is a great place to start for a honest and able repair shop is near you. Besides, any needed parts aren't sold on a end user level. May be as simple as using the correct needle for the machine.

What causes the future ce 100 to only sew backwards?

The forward and backward movement is governed by the feed dogs, which are controlled by a cam on the main shaft and powered by a motor. If the cam gets stuck, it will only sew in reverse. You need to have your machine serviced. It may or may not need a new cam; it's possible that only lubrication and service are necessary, but one way or another, the repair should be done by a technician. It does not necessarily have to be done by a Singer technician, though; those are common parts.

Where can I buy a replacement foot controller and power cord for my singer confidence 7463?

Years ago, my second Singer [760] 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.

How and where do I oil an elna 8000?

According to the manual you just clean the rotary hook area. You can lift out the bobbin holder and clean under it. These machines are different to a mechanical machine and have four different motors in them.

Link to the manual is here

The service manual refers to lubrication as follows:

"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.

Machine will not zigzag

The guy is right, dust kills the moving parts. try oiling the shaft that holds the needle up about 1/2 way and then run on straight stitch with no thread to work in oil, do this several times till you feel that it runs smoothly and you have a little movement side to side as this is necessary for your zig-zag. if that does not work it may be a cam or belt in the top part that needs replacing and you will need the repair to tell you that. I asked them to give me a quote before any work was done so I knew what I was up against. I love my machine so it was worth the 200.00 to get the parts replaced. It will sew anything cause it is a older model with metal rather than plastic parts. hope this helps good luck
