Repair manual for a singer model 27 machine

HI , I just bought a singer model number 27 machine and I emailed singer and they said it was made in 1914.

It looks like they had a wire hooked to the machine in order to convert it to electric but both ends are old wires and frayed.

Is there a manual I can download to convert this to a power machine and to install a new belt as I see the old belt is gone.

I have a Singer 27 treadle. It works so well that I would have to agree that electrifying it would be a mistake. I recommend making it into a handcrank or putting it back into a treadle base. There are sources to help. My favorite is

go google and type in---workshop manual for singer sewing machine model 27--

Where can i find a repair manual for sewing machine

That sounds like a serial number rather than a model number. Get the model number, and you can usually buy the service manual from Sewing Parts Online. If it is not in stock, they can order it for you if you email or call them.

Singer 758 model and the thread is bunching up from the bobbin under the material

try changing the needle--flat side goes to the back of machine

make sure bobbin is wound correctly & inserted correctly in the bobbin case
clean under the needle plate & in the bobbin area for lint or loose threads

I have a Singer Facilita that was bought in the late 70's where can I get an instruction manual

I think you can get a free manual from the Singer site for this machine.
Just type in the model number not the model name e.g 288 and click on search.
Choose the second option from the list by clicking on free download!
You will see that this manual is the same for a number of model numbers.
Hope it's the right one for you!

Hi! I collect old Singers but don't recognize that model number....could it be a part number, possibly?

For information on old sewing machines, check out The International Sewing Machine Collector's Society webpage at They also have a section devoted to Singers but you can actually call the company 1-800-4-Singer (Have the serial number of your machine ready) (or for Singer Industrials, call 1.877.738.9869). You can also email Singer at

Let me know what you find out about your machine, ok?

Happy Sewing!
