Question about Singer 57817 Computerized Sewing Machine

1 Answer

Regarding Singer 57817: I purchased the machine and manual used (obviously a reprint). The manual covers several model numbers, and shows a picture of a different model when explaining the process for buttonholes and stiches other than zig-zag and straight. (It shows a hand wheel with settings for making buttonholes that this machine does not have). Is a better manual available for this model? How do I make buttonsholes on this machine? The box describes "17 stitches", but I'm unable to figure how to do anything except straight and zig-zag. Thanks!

How do i insert black plastic bobbin case back into singer 57817c

Sometimes they have to go in at a very specific angle before they will seat properly. Other times you have to take off the metal cover to get it in there.
Unfortunately all the manuals are at a cost online, so I can't take a look to advise from the instructions.
