The clutch engages and disengages the sewing parts/needles/feed dogs, etc for when you want to wind a bobbin.

The clutch will not release in order to fill a bobbin. Past owners have been directed to remove the clutch knob. How do you remove the clutch knob?


Hi Victor, In general all sewing machines have the same basic design. So, if you take hold of the big 'wheel' on the right of the machine with your left hand and take hold of the knob in the centre of the wheel with your right hand you should be able to turn the knob anticlockwise. That's the cluch disengaged. You should now be able to fill a bobbin. Don't forget to engage the clutch before sewing (just reverse the process).

My singer 20U73 sewing machine has a reliable motor, the light is blinking green and it won't sew. Can someone please help me?


Do you know if your Reliable brand motor is a Clutch or Servo motor? I suspect that if it is a clutch motor ... the safety clutch has been tripped.

Usually when you pull the clutch knob out it disengages the sewing machine needle shaft. At least, that is how my 2 Kenmore's work. You can always take your machine into Sears sewing department and ask the sewing machine salespeople for help, they are really helpful in my area and more than happy to help you for free. Good luck

On my Kenmore I had to pull the knob out to release the clutch, then push it bak in. I don't know if that is the same for you. You can try it, if it doesn;t move, it was worth a try. You could just take to Sears, sewing machine department and ask the salesperson what to do, they should help you for free, our Sears is pretty good about such matters.

Can't tighten clutch on Kenmore zig zag sewing machine.


The clutch has fallen off the shaft. Remove the very small screw in the clutch release screw to remove the clutch release. Place the clutch(round thing with ears on it) back on the shaft with the center ears pointing towards the outside. Put the clutch release screw back on. Tighten it to make sure it works
properly. Put the small screw back in the clutch release screw and test it again. If it will not tighten or release properly, remove the clutch ,rotate it180 degrees and try it again.This should solve your problem.
