SOURCE: Needle & Bobbin out of sync

This description sounds like the machine is out of time. The needle should match up with a cut out section in the bottom of the bobbin area. If it is hitting, the timing has slipped, probably from sewing on a fabric that was too heavy for the machine.

I believe you have a broken gear. These are difficult to repair on your own.

SOURCE: Hand Wheel Won't Turn

The "Bobbin stopper" is in the incorrect position. It moves from side to side in a switch like motion. In one direction, it locks up the machine. That is, you can turn the wheele backwards, but not forward.. The bobbin stopper can be found in the book that cam with the machine. In our book, it is item #9.

I was attempting to pick up the bobbing thread, before sewing. The needle is now stuck in the down position and the handwheel is unresponsive but the motor is whirring when foot pedal is depressed.


Do not press the foot pedal. Continuing to run the motor when the machine cannot work properly could irreparably damage the motor. Unplug your machine. Cut the top thread at the needle, open the bobbin area and try to remove the bobbin case. You may have to patiently snip tangled threads, but eventually you should be able to get the bobbin case out. Once that happens, the needle will most likely be free.

Needle shaft stuck. Machine won't work.


It's possible that you have threads wound somewhere inside the machine. Likely places are the tension unit and near the hand wheel.

Sewing machine hand wheel won't turn. Fabric is stuck under needle. How do I fix this?


Mine has only done this when the machine has jammed with thread form the bobbin and the top thread not being threaded properly in machine or the machine is dirty and needs to be brushed to remove all the fuzz from sewing. Pull the pressure foot off of the machine. Use a seam ripper and carefully cut the threads that are wrapped all around it. Once it is loose, take it off of the machine, then you will be able to pull your bobbin from the machine and trim all the thread that is wrapped around it. Then use a toothbrush or sewing machine brush and clean your bobbin area of your machine with the brush and try it again.

Sewing machine handwheel turns and whirrs but needle bar stuck?


my suggestion is that the machine needs to be serviced at a sewing machine shop, because for 1.it's not responding 2. it used & you don't know when the last time it was serviced 3.something is wrong with the machine.
hopefully there are no broken parts, but having the machine serviced will tell that.
as for a manual

Go to the singer website
Go to the home page
Go to customer service--click on it--it will show a small menu--click on instruction manual
In the box put the model number (example w510 ) & click search
