Question about New Home HF-1012 Mechanical Sewing Machine
My sewing seems very very stiff and when I turn the hand wheel when the needle gets to the lowest position it sticks and will not go any further. I was given this machine as a gift some time ago, and have never used it unfortunatly I have lost the manual please please can you help.
SOURCE: sewing machine no movement
I know what the problem is. Its a cracked gear. When you have the top open look at the big fiber gear on top. It is common for these to crack and now it is stuck. Needs a Bernina service guy to replace it. There is one more smaller fiber gear near the handwheel inside that could be cracked also.

Apply a little singer machine oil to each of the holes along the top and in the working area next to needleplate.........rock handwheel gently and make several full rotations in each direction ......... keep at the rocking and rolling periodically over several hours if necessary....it should come good after a little patience and persistence. Do not apply too much oil, it will only make a mess. NOTE: Belt needs a little give to prevent motor overload, so do not overtighten.
