Default What are the correct bobbins for this machine?

I bought a Singer 3221 Simple machine at an auction, and even finding the manual for it online has not told me which bobbin it should use. Do any of you know?

Lee, your question may be more visible if you posted it in the Vintage Machine area. They know a lot about everything vintage.

This machine does not appear to be at all old.

Thank you very much for this information -- I need to get better at Googling!

I have a machine that came with that bobbin - only 5. Replacement bobbins do not work for it.

Oops! Sorry about that. I don't know why I assumed it was vintage!

It came with the 15J bobbin? The bobbin that was with this auction-purchased machine looks like the generic plastic bobbin I use for my Brother, but I just worry that a nearly-correct bobbin could really mess something up. Did you purchase bobbins from Singer that didn't work, or generic ones?
