SOURCE: Bernina Patchwork 140 handwheel is getting stiff to turn

A stiff handwheel can be a simple as a thread stuck in the raceway or as severe as a failed uppershaft bushing.

Using your instruction manual, perform the basic maintenance and see if that helps. If not, take it to a repair person for evaluation.

SOURCE: Husqvarna 2000 series (64 40) How to remove

Hi, to remove the handwheel on a Viking 6440 you just need to take two screw drivers, one on each side, and gently pry the handwheel off. Nothing else is keeping it attached. Many of these are just stuck a bit and need gentle prying.
Good luck.

the only time the handwheel needs to be touched is if the
sewing machine uses a clutch (to be unwound to wind a bobbin & then tighten back up before sewing) in the handwheel to work the
bobbin winder.
the instruction manual will tell that.

Belts intact, press on pedal, motion in belts, but not on needle end

does the needle go up and down when you turn the handwheel by hand? if so, one of the belts may be slipping - tighten it enough to make it grab.

if the handwheel does not make the needle go up and down, is the handwheel lock for bobbin winding un-locked? if so tighten the handwheel lock inside the handwheel. if the handwheel lock is tightened and the handwheel spins when motor runs the handwheel lock is asembled incorrectly. if this is the case, undo screw in handwhhel lock nut and spin lock nut off machine, then remove pronged washer and turn 1/3 turn and re-install.

Not making stitch

a.gif Dear Joan,

On the top of the machine there is a button. Push the button while turning the handwheel toward you. When the button drops into the machine, you are ready to adjust the length. Keep holding the button in the machine and turn the handwheel forwards or backwards, noting the numbers on the inside of the handwheel. Turning the handwheel to the back decreases the size of the stitch, and turning the handwheel forward decreases the size of the stitch. Release the button and then begin to s

Sticky clutch older pfaff 7570

To fix this yourself you need to remove the handwheel screw and cover. Warning: the mechanism may explode and only an experienced technician can help you put it back together.


1. Remove with a small screwdriver or any small prying instrument the small cover on the middle of the handwheel (it is about the size of a quarter). You will see a silver phillips head screw that is really wide for its size.
2. With a phillips screwdriver remove the screw you see, do not let plastic part underneath move, hold it in so only the screw and washer are removed. (There is a fiber washer underneath that may stick to is or stay behind, remove it with the screw.) It will take a little effort to break it loose and you need to hold onto the handwheel or block the needle bar with something. (remove the needle and place a piece of wood or a book or anything that is about 1" tall under the needle bar and turn the handwheel in the sewing direction until motion stops).
3. Tricky part: You have now removed the screw and washer and hopefully nothing else has come out or sprung across the room. Gengly pull the entire handwheel assembly away from the machine only a fraction of an inch. Pull on the outer part of the handwheel NOT! the inner part (see above re: springs landing on the other side of the room). You are looking at the upper shaft in the center of the assembly, apply a couple of drops of oil to the interface between the plastic handwheel and the shaft (tri-flow is best, but any light weight oil will do, even WD40 if you can stand the smell).
4. Reset the assembly and install the screw/washer/cover.
5. You may still need to block the needle bar and run the machine to work in the oil.

Notes: If you have not have your machine serviced in awhile this may be red flag telling you that it is time. I have worked on Pfaffs for 10 yrs. they are awsome machines but need a little tlc now and then to perform to maximum

Have fun!
