How to Load Bobbin on Singer Stylist 533

Ok, so my Wife has a Singer Stylist 533 from her grandmother who passed away last year. She is trying to learn how to sew. First, we can't seem to find a manual on the internet anywhere for this machine.. and photocopies are $15. Can anyone give us some tips on how to load the bobbin? thanks.

Didn't find threading diagram for the "Singer 533 Stylist" but there is one here for the Singer 534 Stylist, that may be close enough to get you started:

for the manual, $15.00 isn't all that much but you can get one here for $12.00:

$12.00 with free shipping, here:

, I don't know anything about those sites. Personally, I would go with the sewusa.com manual:

:Hi,
I inherited the same machine from my grandmother. Unfortunately, the machine is gone, but I still have the manual if you are still interested. No charge - just hate to throw it away.
Thanks, Carrie snipped-for-privacy@Yahoo.com

I haven't either, maybe it have tripped on my "Ok, so my Wife..." rule.
Or, perhaps it's because it was posted "Sunday, April 22, 2007 2:07:08 PM UTC-"
Nice!

Look at the headers and you'll notice the reason why you haven't seen the original post yet:
The person who first responded doesn't seem to be paying attention and has answered a question that was posed in April of 2007.

Put bobbin in machine so it unwinds counter-clockwise. Thread it into the slot that goes down diagonally. Then make sure it gets under the tension sp ring. I used a pin to force it around/under the spring. Then, and I don't believe the manual makes this clear, turn the hand wheel BACKWARDS. If you turn the wheel forwards the needle will not catch the bobbin thread.

!topic/alt.sewing/CpUfyoHLUZo That thread is almost 6 years old, time to toss it?

Not to mention that one should never turn the hand wheel backwards especially trying to pick up the thread.

The only occasion I have for turning the fly-wheel backwards, is at corners in case I go one-stitch-too-far and need to "unlock" the last formed stitch. ;-}
