First check to see if the machine is in bobbin winding mode. If you are sure it is not in winding mode.... check your motor belt. It's probably worn out or mis-adjusted.

My machine is not running ,the motor sounds like it ok but the bobbin is not moving? Thank you It is a Singer 3116 Simple


if the motor is running and neither the needle or the hook are moving, then your motor belt has come off(the motor will sound like it is racing). If the needle is moving, but the hook is not, you may have a broken gear, or timing belt.

Pfaff 1222 E Makes a whirring noise, wheel won't turn


How long has it been since it's had a thorough cleaning & oiling (including the internal moving parts)? Resist trying to run the machine if the only thing running is the motor. You could burn up the motor or possibly break a gear.

The following method has helped me rescue some frozen older Berninas (which your model seems to resemble). This method worked on all of them except one that also needed a cracked gear replaced.

Wheel on right side that controls the needle up and down is very tight...

It was working now it seems to be frozen the needle part wont move

Model 2142. Motor runs but why doesn't belt move for regular sewing?


Make sure the bobbin winder has not been activated. When the bobbin winder is activated, the needle bar is deactivated. The belt could also be stretched, damaged, or broken.

If it is a mechanical machine, how long has it been since a thorough cleaning and oiling?

Needle stays stuck whilst motor runs. Elna sewing machine


Its a lovely swiss made machine, this is an electronic motor so the needle pressure should remain constant no matter what speed you sew at. The needle staying down and the squealing sounds more like drive issues inside or possibly gunk buildup.

If it was my machine, I would take it to a qualified Elna technician and ask for him to look at it. These machines are small and well made so well worth spending the money to give it a service and get it back to 1000% IMHO.

The needle wont move at all?


Hello we had the same problem with our sewing machine. After playing with it we found there is a bobbin winding assembly lever that moves back and forth. By moving it the needle moved. This helped us. Hope it helps you. embreyR97@yahoo.com if you have questions.
