Question about Sewing Machines

Motor is sluggish, Necchi Model#4795

The motor runs but is so sluggish/slow that sewing is impossible. It's a sudden problem that my neighbor also has -- same machine, bought on the same day, but mine lasted about 6 months longer. About 2-3 years old. Janome 4900QC six months old. Today, on turning machine on, it is sewing very, very slowly despite attempts to vary speed with slider. I woyuld really appreciate some help.

Set machine to wind the bobbin to check for how fast the machine will run. I believe it will run fast or slow according to how hard you depress the foot control. If it runs fast and slow you have a problem in the machine. Most likely the machine, if turned by hand, is hard to turn and it needs to be professionally serviced. before it is ruined.

My Necchi 537fa is sewing sluggish. Motor spins but needle moves slow. What do I do to fix this?


If your Necchi has an external motor, take the belt off and run it.... is the motor sluggish? If so... that's where you start. motors need to be oiled, typically with oil and grease ports on either end of the motor housing.

If the motor spins up nicely,... you need to clean and oil the rest of the machine. Start underneath if the bottom workings are exposed, oil all the places where metal joins metal. Then do the bobbin and feed dog area... then look along the top and sides for oil parts.. give them a drop or two...Finally, see if you can get into the head where the take up lever and such are... oil the needle bar, presser foot bar, etc.

It's a dirty job... so prepare a good space for your machine. Liquid Wrench will help you free up gunked up and rusty parts. Fine grade steel wool (0000) and Cotton swabs help.

Good luck

Thread jamming, wont feed material, sewing in one place


Try moving the stitch length dial to 4 or 5 - check the manual. You may have it in the position for very close together sewing. I had to do a lot of trying with my 4795 to get it to work right. I found that very thin thread, polyester kind, broke at the needle after a couple of stitches. I switched to coats & clarks thread and a Singer ball point needle and it works fine. Be sure your needle is inserted with the flat top toward the back of the machine. Good luck!
