How Can I Tell What Year A Sewing Machine Is ?
SINGER 9960 Quantum Stylis ?

I know there were problems with the 2010 model and maybe the 2012.

So if someone has a SINGER 9960 Quantum Stylist how can they find out what year model they have ?

There has to be a way to figure this out by the serial number without contacting singer.

I'm trying to help someone figure which one they have.

Thanks

It would probably have something to do with the serial numbers. I would get the serial number off it and call Singer. A serial number will usually tell you when and where an item was made.

The 9960's with the greenish decal on the lower right of the machine are the newer ones. The ones without that are the ones from 2010 that had the bobbin problems.

This is the decal I am talking about:

Sergei - Serger 14T968DC (set up as coverstitch)
Stella - Serger Stylist II 14J250 (set up as main overlock)
Quincy - Quantum 9960 (my main SM)
Newest addition: Stevie, my very first Featherweight! (221 Centennial)

Thanks Ladies....

Does anyone know what the 2012 model looks like that might help distinguish if from the 2010 and 2011 models ?

Thanks !

I'm pretty sure that both 2011 and 2012 have that decal, but that is only "pretty sure", not positively sure.
