Remove the needle , tighten the needle set screw so the clamp doesn't rattle and run the machine.This will give you a better idea of where the noise originates.
Remove the top cover and put a drop of sewing machine oil(not 3 in 1 oil) on anyplace that moves and rubs. Run the machine again and see if you still have the noise. Replace the top cover.
Open the side cover(left side) put a drop of oil on any thing that moves or rubs(Shafts or joints). Run the machine again.
Remove the bottom cover and repeat the above processes.
If you still have the problem and it is bothering either you or the machine then it needs to be seen by a technician.

I need a manual for a Singer e99670 also and tried the Singer site, but they don't seem to find that model. Any suggestions?


After doing some research, it turns out that that machine is a part of the Singer Scholastic line of heavy-duty machines--NOT its line of regular machines. I would email Singer; it appears that quite a few people are looking for that specific manual.

You could also go to their FaceBook page and make the same request.

Where can I get a free manual for a singer 417


Go to Singer's website and search for model 717. It's similar to model 417 and available for free as a download. There's also a physical copy available for purchase.
