My Kenmore Sewing Machine's needle is locked down


best suggestion try inserting new needle. cotton up the top suggests needle problem or incorrect top thread tension, this would effect the feed dog. Because thread is black and most recent use was with pink, the problem thread was already there perhaps in cavity above bobbin but below throat plate. I have had this happen and nothing will move, untill needle released. The bobbin holder tension may also need adjusting after the knots of black cotton are removed.

My needle hit one of the pins holding the fabric together. Usually it snaps the needle in half and I just replace it. This time, it jammed down inside the bobbin housing and I couldn't lift the needle up...


Remove the faceplate, bobbin and case. See if you can see the bottom part of the needle. Use a flashlight to look down in the bobbin area. Put a magnet on a pair of long tweezers to magnify it. You can then gently move the tweezers around to grab hold of the broken needle.

My janome 11000 memorycraft's needle threader has jammed in the down position and cannot be moved


Thanks to floraq803, we have our 11000 working again. The needle threader was stuck in the down position. We turned off the machine, and turned the wheel (which controls where the needle is) until the needle threader bar was straight (approximately 1/2 way between the needle being all the way down and all the way up). Turned on the machine and the threader came back up again. Now back to sewing.

My needle and shaft won't go up and down. I have tried using the hand wheel to move the needle but it still won't move.

1- losse screw for needle bar and try to move machine by hand if machine realease means needle bar jam and need to change with lower bushing.
2- remove stoper for bobin case and move machine if realase means there isthread on hook and need to remove it and re adjust timming between needle bar and hook again.

This is the first time I am using this machine... it worked for a little while (15 minutes)and then the needle jammed. The whole part that moves the needle up and down doesn't move, manually or by pedal. I...


Unscrew the needle and you should be able to move the balance wheel, take the needle out and then look for thread jammed in the bobbin case area.

The needle is stuck,not moving.its very hard and the motor makes a sound but needle does not move.


Refer to your manual and make sure the bobbin winding feature is disengaged.

Turn off the power and remove the needle and if there is fabric, remove it also.

Open the needle plate look for thread tangles.

After cleaning, turn the hand-wheel by hand to see if it moves the needle up and down.

If it does, press on the foot pedal to see if it is working.

Any of the above could be the problem.

My Kenmore sewing machine model 385.15212 is stuck in the needle down position. I have cleared the threads and cleaned the bobbin area. Tried to force the hand wheel, but it won't go, and don't want to...


I doubt it is a motor problem but it is too jammed up to turn the motor-you are right not to force it. Take out all of the bobbin parts again and leave them out. Now unscrew the needle and while lowering it, into the needleplate hold it tightly and remove it. Clear all thread from the machine and it should now move freely.
Reassemble the bobbin parts and reinsert a new needle being careful to insert it fully and correctly.
