How do I set the bobbin on the singer featherweight so it does not hit he upper plate

Go to the Singer Sewing Machine Site, select Support, and there is an option to download your user's manual free. On page 7, it shows you how to insert both the bobbin and bobbin case.

I have seen many of these cases, and here is how they work. You'll notice a lever on the front of the case. When that lever is in, you can't remove the bobbin. When you need to insert the case, you have to lift the lever, making sure that the protrusion in the case is on top.

I have a singer featherweight, Serial number AL409402, I'm trying to find out if this is a model 221 by the serial number, can you tell me if it is?

Singer has on their web site with a database of their serial numbers. Since you have the serial number to your machine, it will be easy to find out.
Hope this helps.

What kind of bobbin singer 301 machine use

The Singer 301 uses the same bobbin as the Singer 221 (also known as a Featherweight). Not surprisingly it's called a Class 221/301 bobbin and is Singer part number 45785. If you don't have a Singer dealer or large sewing machine repair shop in your area, I would suggest purchasing from a reputable online seller such as Vintage Sewing or Sewing Machine 221 Sale. Below is a picture of what both the older and newer style of this bobbin looks like. 11da97d.jpg
