This is a very common problem with these machines. First of all you have to have a new camstack gear. Then you may need a tech to do it. The gears can be found for purchase on the internet with a search. If you feel you want to do it yourself contact me and I'll tell you how but its very involved and many things have to be done just right for it to work.

The problem is that of a stuck piston detent on the pattern selector support that snaps the top cover closed.

Testimonial: "To swiss_tech Great help. Very much appreciated. Thank You"
Sewing machines needs full service now and then (every 10 years will often do). The motor on the 730 series is actually as powerful as they get on domestic machines, and handles just about everything that fits under the pressure foot. Only if the machine has been used a lot over the years are the brushes worn down, but it might need new grease not matter how little it has been used.
However, the stitch applications can sort of gum or clog up if the machine has not been used for ages. Take a look in the manual and oil ever point suggested every time you take out the machine. Try them now and then on slow speed, that might get every function to run smoothly again.
This is as good a machine as any out there, favorably compared to any new machine under 500£. It sews perfect stitches on just about any material, and is well worth a full professional service (At a shop they will always recommend a new machine they want to sell you). All kinds of pressure feet and accessories are available in regular sewing shops and online.
Check with different shops for price on full service. This is a great machine what ever they tell you.
