    Anyone Ever hear of a Phoenix Sewing Machine?

    I just received a neglected Phoenix Automatic Class 283 sewing machine. I've never seen one before let alone know anything about it. It came in a cabnet with all the accessories plus the book. This is really an unusual machine. The warrenty card says that it was manufactured in Bielelfeld, Germany. The bobbin case is another unusual item. How to remove the bobbin and replace it into place. I've never seen anything like it. What can any of you tell me about this machine? Has anyone owned one? I'm just curious! I don't know if it runs yet. There is one cord that looks like it might need some attention before plugging it in.

    Thank You, Claudia

    Can you post some pictures? They'd probably help, particularly if it's a rebadge.

    Well here she is: I hope this uploads now. I've been having problems with this computer lately. It needs cleaning out.

    Well! It finally uploaded. Hurray.

    Here is another link for you Claudia. I bet your sewing machine has the same very interesting bobbin case. Anticipating further pictures of the sewing machine threaded. I am sure that is interesting also.

    What does the bobbin area look like? What bobbins does it take?
    Were you able to find a manual? Does it work? Is it gray or green?
    Does it just do zig zag? Does it have disks? I am ssssooooooo nosy.....
    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

    I am nosy also Miriam. I sure am fascinated by what I call the "odd balls" machines, the ones that are not commonly seen. Did you take a peak at the 2nd link I posted. Several pictures down there is a picture of the bobbin area and case. It sort of resembles the Necchi Lydia bobbin case and the way it loads. I am also thinking that it does not use disks. Perhaps if we nag Claudia long enough she will post more pictures of her German maiden.
