SOURCE: the bobbin and needle won't move when i press the

I own a signer simple and it is a great little machine but if not adjusted just so it will act up like this.

The three things that caused this were:

#1 tension on upper thread and bobbin casing were uneven.
#2 Thread was catching on bobbin casing (solution, generously oil the face of the casing where the latch to remove the bobbin is located.
#3 The material was too thick (denim, leather) or I was sewing through too many layers of fabric.

As a general rule of thumb with this machine I never sew through more than 4 or 5 layers. This is a great machine for quick fixes and mending, but if using for apparel and complex items it can be a bit finicky. I default to a sturdier machine in these instances.

It's jammed, take off the face plates and completely unthread it. Take out all the jammed up thread and it should operate freely:) hope this helped

Brother 1100, was sewing , now it is froze, cant turn the wheel far either way, cleaned, wants to go but is stuck, I cant see any thread in bobbin plate but I think that is where issue is advise


You could check the bobbin winder shaft. If this is engaged the machine appears to have frozen while turned on. Move the bobbin winder shaft left, then right while checking the foot controller and you will soon know if this is the problem.

The handwheel will turn manually but it will not move using the foot pedal. The sound it makes when I press on the foot pedal *sounds* like I am filling the bobbin.

Machine is behaving as if not getting any power, but light is on. Press foot pedal and absolutely nothing happens


There is probably a bad connection in your foot pedal. Try moving it around with your hands at the contact points while pressing to activate. If it goes when you are shifting its position then it needs to be fixed or replaced.
