SOURCE: brother pc 8500 sewing machine-- the balance wheel

The upper shaft is probably binding a little on the bushing. Take it to your local Brother Dealer, this is not uncommon on this machine.

SOURCE: hand wheel is hard to turn

If you take out the bobbin case and slide off the needle pate, you can inspect the bottom area for a thread jam. The black post that the bobbin case slides onto is called the thread hook. It should have a loose feel to it when you gently move it around, it should not have a "solid feel".

Another area that sometimes wraps the thread is the take up lever area.
(the lever that moves really fast up and down as the machine is sewing)
If the lever has been pushed to the left, it's possible the thread has wrapped up in that area.

If those two areas are o.k. you'll need to take it in for service.

I have a Singer 99-13 with knee control. I wound bobbins but can't get it to sew. Is there something that turns it over to sewing? Thanks. Karen


On the 99-13, you wind the bobbin with the balance wheel in the stop motion position. Thus during bobbin winding, the needle mechanism is disconnected from the rest of the machine. You probably need to tighten the set screw on the balance wheel. The screw is in the center of the balance wheel on the right hand side of the sewing machine. Hold the balance wheel while you turn the screw away from yourself. (You hold the balance wheel and turn the screw over towards you for winding.)

The manual for the 99-13 is available from Singer on their manuals page: http://www.singerco.com/support/instruction-manuals . The direct link to the manual is http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/9d4377811af9ffbbaa1b8efd50ea962c142a66d9.pdf . Look at figure 5 on page 7 (page 4 of the PDF) and then page 10-11 (page 6 of the PDF) for the bobbin winding directions.

I hope this helps.

Tip

Sewing machine balance wheel stops.


Hold the wheel with one hand, turn the stop motion screw towards you. Place both feet upon the treadle and turn the balance wheel towards you at the same time allowing the feet to move freely and lightly with the treadle. Continue this until everything moves freely and easily. Do this until the machine can re-start without the balance wheel turning in the wrong direction.
Then tighten the balance wheel. Then place cloth under the presser foot then lower presser foot with the lever.

How do I get the wheel off an old Singer sewing machine model 66


If you are talking about the Balance wheel on the od Singers it is fairly easy.
You first need to remove the small screw in the clutch ( which is the chrome knob in the middle of the balance wheel) Once this is removed you can completely unscrew the clutch and then remove the balance wheel

Singer stylist 534 sometimes when you stop won't start without turning balance wheel


Yes this is normal especialy with heavier fabrics. It allows more control so you build up speed gently. It is also related the limited power of the motor.

Balance wheel doesn't turn


Don't force it. open up under the presser foot and the bobbin area.... pick out any threads.

I have a New Home xr-vii sewing machine, the balance wheel is very hard to turn. The repair shop I took it to said the clutch needed to be adjusted. Got it back 8 months later and it still has the s


if the sewing machine repair shop knew the machine needed a clutch
adjustment, then why didn't they fix it. or if they said they did & it's not
fixed, I'd call them & ask them why the machine is still doing the same
as it did?

Error code 6 (thread in motor but there is none)


If you can turn the balance wheel by hand and the needle goes up and down it may be loose belts, if you can't turn the balance wheel by hand then there is definitely thread stuck somewhere in the raceway
