Try watching it on you tube, or google it, it is not hard to do but hard to explain so that it makes sense. Sometimes even ehow has demonstrations.
Good luck

    Hi, I too have a singer merritt 2404. I cannot figure out why my bobbin is not threading. I think I placed everything correctly but I am not sure. I can't find any video tutorials on youtube or ehow for this model machine. Can anyone provide a link please!

    If, you go to, there is a few video's called "attaching a walking foot" that are pretty good. Your machine looks like it may be a low shank, (needle shaft) so make sure that you have the right one, not a high shand or slant needle. It basically just attaches from the back and is attached with the screw from your unattached presser foot shank. I think if you watch the video you will see that you want to watch a video made for home sewing machines, not the industrial walking foot machines, they already are built in.

Singer/merritt 2430 bobbin fill

If you lift up the thread holder, the bobbin holder is inside. Loosen the hand guide to stop the needle from going up and down. Pull the thread around the top thread guide and back into the bobbin holder. Thread the bobbin and move the bobbin over so the guage is "inside" the bobbin. As for the manual, the Singer Merritt 2404 is applicable to the 2430 if that helps.
