You need to check to see if your bobbin tensioner has broke. Look at your schematic to determine if everything is still where it's supposed to be. Good Luck.

Won't sew every time I turn the wheel needle won't go the way down gets stuck noisy

If your machine is mechanical (NOT computerized) it probably needs cleaning and oiling. Consult your owner's manual and use ONLY recently-purchased good quality sewing machine oil.

I want to clean my Singer 6510 machine, It always needs me to pull down on the wheel to get it started, kinda hard to do when you're using both hands to hold the material in place! However, in the...

Yes this is lint that should be vacuumed out after every 8 hours of sewing. Sometimes we see this lint build up to the point the machine will break gears. Often the lint between the feed dogs and needle plate will keep the fabric from feeding.

You can purchase sewing machine oil at any sewing machine store. It is non staining and 10 weight. You can also use Triflow as another option. Triflow has a generic Teflon in it that leaves a slippery residue for a long time.

If your machine is hard to turn with the hand wheel it may be a bearing or gear issue.

You may enjoy a new machine with the control that allows you to put the needle up or down with the touch of the foot control. After using one of these you will never want to sew on a machine that does not have the pivot on the needle function.

in response to all serger, no, after my babylock serger is cleaned and serviced it runs quietly.
as for the brother, it's possible thats normal, try contacting a repair shop in your area and tell them about the serger and see what they say.
it's possible that the serger may need some type of adjustment
or a part may have broken .

Is a little bit noisy while sewing

your description is brief so not sure if this is an old machine, new machine, never been serviced, or what brand and model.

But all machines need to be cleaned (bobbin hook area) with a little brush to remove lint and built up. And oiling the designated points as per your sewing machine manual.

And the needle should be changed for each new project, a needle is good for 4-6 sewing hours, after that it will blunten. If you stitch slowly and can hear squeaking or popping noices, needle is blunt.

For general maintenance tips if you don't have a manual yet, try, its got lots of info.

You do need an oiling and cleaning. Also, try adjusting on the bobbin cover by turning th little screw with a small screwdriver. Keep adjusting and testing until you get the loops just as you want them...

Singer 7442 is Loud!

Check to see that lint or oil has not collected on the hook or needle bar. Always use a good quality sewing machine oil. A damaged needle can also be the cause of a noisy machine - insert a new needle.
