Question about Sewing Machines
If it's been awhile (more than a year or 2) since you had the machine serviced, it may be something as simple as a good, thorough service. There is grease on some of the gears that periodically needs to be cleaned out and replenished to keep things running smoothly. Over time this can dry out and cause the drive shaft to not function properly.
It could also be a gear that is broken (a possibility) or the machine could be out of time (not likely, but also possible).
Unfortunately these are things that are generally not user-serviceable. Hopefully you have a good repair technician in your area that you trust - preferably one that is specifically trained on your machine.
Hope this helps.
