Manual white jeans machine model 1888


I'm not sure if this is the manual you need, but there's a free one for a 1888 model available through the Singer website, strange as it may seem. (In fact you can find free manuals for many White brand sewing machines via the Singer website.)

Look under Singer's "Support and Resources" then select "Instruction manuals" , or follow this link: http://www.singerco.com/support/instruction-manuals

On the Instructions Manual page you'll see it says "Find Your Manual - Step 1, Step 2 etc etc" and under that there's a search box that says "Model Number"

Into this search box just type "w"
(don't type "white", because that doesn't work)

You'll be taken to a near incomprehensible results page but scroll down and you'll see there's one listed as "W1788, W1888"
which I think is the same as your machine

Good luck, and I hope you find what you need :)
Kind regards

How do i thread the needle


visit this website, http://www.singerco.com/accessories/manuals.html type in your model number and download the manual for your White, then follow the instructions for threading it.

If you have issues with actually getting the thread through the needle, then use a needle threading device, you can find these at the local habadashery shop.

Needle timeing is out


The timing is set at the factory. If the threads are not hooking together, then perhaps try one of three things.

1. remove the thread, and run the machine at full speed for three minutes or more. This warms up the hardware, loosens gelled up oil, and get's all the parts in allignment.

2. (and 3.) Check the thread tentions. On the top thread, it will be a dial with numbers, over a spring and two plates that the thread runs through. On the bottom, it's a tiny screw on the side of the casing that the bobbin sits inside.

If the machine sews loose threads, then tighten these, a bit at at time, and if the machine jams up with a knot of thread at the needle, then loosen these. I believe that if the sewn threads are loose at the top, the bobbin tention neeeds tightening, and if the sewn threads on the bottom are loose, then the top tention dial needs tightening.

Cheers.
