Question about Singer Featherweight II 117
So far it's cost me,$140.00 + to set my machine back into timing. I'm so disappointed in the 117. To think I traded my Black and Gold Singer for this !
I just need some help or information on how to reset the timing Please ! I still would like to keep the machine.If it didn't go out of timing so much. I've already paid for the Singer twice b/c of the repairs. A manual would be great to do it myself. I don't want to take it in again for another $60 or $ 80+ dollars. Help is just as good.
This machine uses a rotary thread break sensor. If you look at the top left of your machine when it is running the sensor (white dial) should be spinning. Threading around this part is critical. Make sure it spins when you pull thread through the needle. if it does not you have missed something in threading. If this is spinning and machine still stops it is likely the sensor is malfunctioning.

You have a high speed (for the time) industrial Singer sewing machine. If you click here you will find a free download of the servicing manual for your machine: it's very comprehensive and includes the operating instructions, but as it's aimed at professional users it assumes the user already knows a bit about sewing machines. Note that on the 281-21 regular maintenance and correct lubrication is even more vital than on their domestic machines from the same period.
I hope that you are pleased with the speed and content of my free answer, if so then please take a brief moment to rate my reply. Good luck with your machine, it's a bit of a heavyweight but should give many more years of faultless use if looked after.
