    I just got an old 1941 (I believe), it's Model # AG104872 Singer off Craig's List for $10 today! But it doesn't work, doesn't turn on. My DH believes it needs a new motor. It does however have a beautiful wood case! :D
    Does anyone know where I can find one? He's been searching online for well over an hour, and no luck yet, on any sites.
    Thanks for any info!!
    Diana :D

    Thank you, MountainQuilter! But I didn't see where old parts are listed. I'll try calling them tomorrow.

    They were very helpful when I called. They looked up the number of the machine and told me what I needed and I had it within a few days.

    Enjoy your machine.

    There are two groups you might join to find resources for parts: needlebar.org and the Yahoo! group Vintage Singers. Sometimes you can find parts on e-bay.

    I was in the market for a 15-91 a couple of years ago and ended up buying an already restored machine from a poster that I recognized. There are folks who are interested in restoring machines themselves as a hobby, so you could find a motor from a collector who bought a machine with for parts.

    Good luck!

    Thanks again, Mountain Quilter!
    And thank you, Elizajo, I just signed up for the needlebar group! DH already looked all through Ebay, and didn't find anything. But I'll be checking out the Needlebar group!
    :D

    Did I hear someone calling? :lol:

    Here is a link to one on eBay, but you can find them at your local sewing machine repair shop for about the same price or less.

    I just looked up sewing machine motor in the search box on eBay and there was a slew of them listed. All you need is a universal styled motor and you are good to go.

    According to the serial you gave you have a Singer 99 which 10,000 were allotted on Sept. 9, 1941. You did very good on the purchase of it, Model 99's are a nice machine and they sew very smoothly.

    Thanks Bebe!! :D
    And thank you, Billy!! We didn't know if it had to be a specific motor or not.

    And when DH went to turn the oven on later, he discovered the outlet he had used to try the machine on had flipped the circuit breaker. So he's now hoping maybe it was just wired wrong, as he had been checking that out too. He'll be checking that when he gets home from work today.

    And Billy, do you have a link for where you found that it's a 99?
    I hope I'm able to actually use it as the wheel thingy has a worn look to it, and I love imagining all the hours someone must have sewn on it.....
    :D :D

    I have tons of sewing documents stored on my computer including the dates and serials for the Singers, New Home, Kenmore sewing machines. I also have service manuals, parts list, owners manuals, instructions for attachments and so forth.

    My Data base is a little more complete than Singers on the dating and production totals but you can go here for the information:
