    Does it have a little rubber tire? If so, those do wear out just like they did on antique machines. Maybe all you have to do is replace that? At any rate good luck and happy sewing.

Something is broken, or slipped out of place. take it in for repair. While you are at it have it cleaned, checked and retimed if needed.

SOURCE: Model 7462. When trying

Your machine needs to go to dealer to rectify the problem. Your machine sensors are telling the machine that the needle bar is not idle while winding the bobbin and the flashing lights is a warning message. Nothing serious and your dealer should be able to fix it in 30 minutes. You need to remove the covers and hand wheel, so best to leave it to the experts

Singer 2662-when I press the foot control the motor revs but doesn't make the needle go up and down.


Most sewing machines have a switch to position for sewing or for spinning bobbins. Make sure it is in the sewing position and not for spinning bobbins. I have several sewing machines (not your model) and they all do that if they are set for spinning bobbins.

I 've been using this 2639 Singer since 2006. It was working perfect until one day the bobbin case popped up away from the shuttle causing the needle to be blocked from moving. So, I removed the p


First change that needle. It's likely bent. A bent needle won't create a stitch.

Then double check your timing. It sounds like you have it ******** a bit... But that's hard to determine from a description. Before you start the timing process, make sure that your needle bar is in the correct position. (typically the upper timing mark on the needle bar is just below the lower needle bar guide when the needle is at its very lowest point) If necessary loosen the needle bar holder and make a correction. Once the needle bar is positioned correctly... then move on to the shuttle/needle timing.

Good luck!

Needle is hard to move up and down


try changing the needle
clean under the needle plate & in the bobbin area for lint or threads
rethread the machine top & bobbin
make sure the bobbin isn't too full
make sure the bobbin is not damaged or warped & that it is the right
bobbin for the machine
make sure the bobbin is turned the right way in the bobbin case
if none of these suggestions help then the machine needs to be
checked at a repair shop

I agree with sylviaivie about find another repairman, they are suppose
to guarantee the work they do.
when the upper shaft is replaced & then the machine is retimed
the machine should work just fine.
but just don't take it back to that man to be repaired
here is a tip if it happens again,,
always try to cut the top thread first,
& turn the machine up on it's back to access the bottom cover
take the cover off the bottom to get access to the bobbin thread
where you can cut the bobbin thread
then you should be able to get the needle out without breaking it &
damaging the upper shaft, replace the needle & make sure
that the thread is good quality & not knotty, clean out the bobbin area of lint or thread
always change the needle on the embroidery machine every project
make sure the bobbin area is kept clean of lint or thread
clean under the needle plate at least once a week for lint if you
embroidery everyday or just often

Pfaff select 1540 bobbin thread jam


if there is a thread in the hook area try taking a pair of needle nose
pliers to try & get the thread out, if that doesn't work then you might
think about taking the machine to a sewing machine shop to have the
machine checked since the needle will not go up & down & handwheel
won't move

Sewing machine handwheel turns and whirrs but needle bar stuck?


my suggestion is that the machine needs to be serviced at a sewing machine shop, because for 1.it's not responding 2. it used & you don't know when the last time it was serviced 3.something is wrong with the machine.
hopefully there are no broken parts, but having the machine serviced will tell that.
as for a manual

Go to the singer website
Go to the home page
Go to customer service--click on it--it will show a small menu--click on instruction manual
In the box put the model number (example w510 ) & click search
