Question about Sewing Machines
I was sewing and my needle hit a pin and broke. I made sure both parts of the broken needle were accounted for and installed a new needle. I rethreaded my machine and began sewing again, but after a few stitches it just stopped. When I push the pedal it tries to go but only makes a buzzing noise. I checked and made sure there were no pieces of thread or lint caught everywhere. I have tried everything I know to try and it's just not working. Please help!!
It's possible that the machine will need a adjustment or the timing

Best scenario is that the needle hit deflected and hit the hook that the bobbin snaps on to. When needles hit hooks they can leave a mark or burr that the thread will catch on when it comes around. Take out the hook and run your fingernail over the edge from the point back. If you find a burr get some crocus paper (very, very fine sanding paper and polish the burr off.
Next would be that your machine is knocked out of timing meaning a trech will have to reset it.

Sounds like you threaded it wrong and kept trying to sew, gently get all of your material out of the machine, DO NOT FORCE, GENTLY ROCK IT OUT OR YOU WILL WRECK THE MACHINE, also watch your dvd and learn about threading from your book. Always, hold your thread ends when you start to sew. If, you cannot find your manual go to www.singerco.com, I have sewn for 50+ years and found that the dvd was very helpful, each machine is different.

Most of the time it is because the needle was inserted with the flat side facing you instead of away from you. And for the heck of it, put in a different needle, there may have been a burr or some defect on your new needle. Other than that, it could be your timing.

you can put a piece of tape on it to keep the thread from coming off
or as one service tech showed me, take a pair of pliers & put a small cloth over the thread take up
lever & take the pliers & gently mash down the take up lever closed or as much as need to keep
the thread from coming off
