Why does my hand wheel feel springy? why won't it turn and move the needle?


Is the bobbin winding mechanism activated? That will usually prevent the handwheel from turning and moving the needle. Otherwise, it could be broken...

The bobbin thread will not pick up. The machine had jammed and I forced the wheel and can't get bobbin thread to pick up. When I thread manually, I only get holes, no stitches. Is it a timing belt?


check your needle to see if it's bent---roll on flat surface to see if it roll correctly
on some sewing machines when the thread comes off the thread take up lever it can cause the machine to jam
also if the bobbin thread becomes tangled it can jam
check the bobbin area for lint or loose threads
try having a top thread tail & bobbin thread tail of 3-4 inches
try holding the top thread tail & turn the handwheel on the right side on the machine manually & put the needle down into the bobbin area & see if the bobbin thread will pick up that way

My turning wheel to manually move the needle out of fabric is jammed. Should I check the bobin compartment for jammed threads.


Yes, by all means, always turn your handwheel towards you never away from you because you can mess up your timing.

Hand wheel is stuck


hi there,
well,stuck up hand wheel, is due to mechanical obstruction inside machine,bushing on shafting need to oil,and on handwheel bushing near clutch there is oil port there. since hand wheel are connected to cam shaft with set of gears and pulley is coupled to motor pulley,and other linkage under bobbins,shuttle race etc,broken gears are most common causes of stuck up handwheel,we can consider also the brush carbon,when worn out and damage the rotor commutator brush.if you can open the cover of motor below side of handwheel,you can see the pulley and motor assembly.also on top of machine there an opening to see the top gear assembly,this should be done by service technician.try to bring to nearest service center if still under warranty claim this for lesser maintenance cost.have a nice day,don't forget to rate me.thank'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.

Ready?

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!

Needle jams and breaks off


Needle jams....Thread is caught in the hook...solution...Remove the upper thread and bobbin case,turn the handwheel backwards and forwards by hand and remove the thread remands.

Needles breaks
1. Needles is damaged..Insert new needle
2. The needle is not correctly inserted....insert flat side towards the back
3. Wrong needle size for the fabric...Choose a needle to suit the thread and fabric.

Kenmore model 158-12392


It is a clutch issue.

If you can turn the handwheel manually and the motor belt is running OK but the needle will not move, you will need to check the clutch mechanism for the bobbin winder.


There are three ways for the clutch to engage, and as I do not know your machine, I offer all three for you to see which applies to yours.

Flick winder to the left to engage needle arm motion.......it may activate automatically when the winder is set to wind a new bobbin and de-activate the needle arm

or

there may be a small wheel inside the larger handwheel....tighten the inner wheel to engage needle arm...

or

the handwheel may have a push/pull action ....push in to activate the clutch, pull out for bobbin winding.

If there is any more you need to ask or update your info to refine the question, just post back here, or drop a line through the "Contact Us" page at www.bargainbox.com.au

Needle wont go up or down


If the Handwheel (big knob) is moving but the needle is not moving, you need to engage the clutch ........depending on the model

- push handwheel in to engage, pull out to disengage
or
- if there is a smaller wheel inside the handwheel, tighten to engage, loosen to release.

BUT if all is jammed........

Check for threads that are jamming the motion of the hook around where the bobbin case is

If your bobbin goes in from the top, remove the needleplate and bobbincase remove thread jams by gently rocking handwheel back and forth until released.

Clean around the hook race with a rag moistened with methylated spirit, surgical spirit or similar, then reassemble.

If front loading, open the door for bobbin case area, release 2 retaining clips holding the collar on (take note of the position/orientation for when you re-assemble....even take a digi photo to refer to !?!).....
......then just do jam removal & clean out in much the same way as for the top loader.

In all cases, don't force too much or be too brutal, gentle and patient works best, try to judge where the jam is caught and work with it slowly......you may need to cut jammed threads, just ensure all are removed before you re-assemble.
