I now have a machine with no cases. The first one to come off was the front one. The process was as follows: Remove the end plastic bit the cap over the foot. Undo all screws you can get to Unser the end cover (previously removed) there is a single screw with washer holding the front cover. Unscrew this ine. Then it takes a bit of jiggery pokery to separate all the plastic tabs. I used a wide bladed screwdriver and the two halves just split. The front half is then disconnected from the Circuit board and you are nearly there Then lift the machine from the rear casing, again it moght be necessary to jiggle quite a bit. Goog luck.

The Y2662488 is the serial number. The sewing machine is a 66K which was built starting in 1925. The parts for the 66 and the 66K should be the same; the K indicates the factory where the machine was made.

What part are you calling the throat pad? I've found a throat plate, a darning plate and the bobbin cover. See .

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the description of the part that is missing for further assistance.

You have created button holes with this machine before or first time?

I take that it ran the first stage, straight stitches, and stopped? If yes, its indicating it ran this first stitch series and determined there was no activation of the reversing lever. So it's advising what it believes are the actions necessary to correct the problem.

So it needs to be determined whether the lever is engaging or not engaging the button hole foot.

Suggest you try again and watch specifically how the button hole foot engages the reversing lever. May be a clue there as to why it has determined reverse lever not activated.

Not sure this model, but I believe it has feed dog up/down selector. You have to expose the free arm to find the selection lever at lower left front of free arm.

Q: [You ask, how to remove Singer 503 Needle Plate].
A: (1) It may help to remove the needle, so you do not hurt yourself on it. Also, removing the Foot for more visibility may help. (2) Pull the Needle Plate Control Lever to the Far Left, as far as it will go. [Singer 503's and all 500 Series sewing machines have a Needle Plate Control Lever, located at Right-Front of Machine Bed, that controls the Needle Plate: (Far Left) To Rise and Unlock to Remove the Needle Plate; (Center) To raise the Needle Plate To Darn [instead of Dropping Feed Dogs, like most machines do]; (Far Right) To Lock-Down for sewing. (3) Grasp Needle Plate with your Left Hand attempting to slide it Frontward or Backward to remove it; at the same time using your Right Hand to move Handwheel back-and-forth to get Feed Dogs to drop down far enough so Feed Dogs do not Bind the Needle Plate, keeping Needle Plate from sliding Forward or Backward to be pulled free of the two Needle Plate Lifting Posts. (4) Keep jiggling the Needle Plate toward you and away from you while dropping the Feed Dogs by means of moving the Handwheel; not being afraid to tug a bit to pull the Posts up a bit more till the Plate pulls free. (5) It may be necessary to oil the posts and work them up and down a dozen times to be sure they move freely through their entire range of motion, before trying again. Hope this helps. Sincerely, Amender (2019-FEB-16). #

With handwheel, try setting needle to highest position before moving bobbin winding spindle to the right.
