Question about Brother XL-5130 Mechanical Sewing Machine

1 Answer

Help I have no idea what is wrong.

Every time I press the pedal, the needle doesn't go down. If I try to turn the wheel on the side it won't move therefore the needle doesn't move either. I have recently oiled it so that isn't the problem. Please help I have no idea what is wrong.

I think this is lint build up. Try dissasembling the bobbin case parts any other parts on the bottom of the machine that could be collecting lint.

Riccar 525 - makes a birring noise when I press foot pedal but the needle does not go up and down. I can turn dial at right hand side ok.


Sounds like the motor is trying to run but the other machine parts are not moving. If your machine is an older mechanical (not computerized), then it's very possible the machine has seized due to lack of regular cleaning and oiling. Avoid trying to run the machine in this condition as it can damage the motor.

Wheel on right side that controls the needle up and down is very tight...

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.

On the side of the 'knob', look for another wheel that tightens against that, so it engages, that's what it sounds like. When that second wheel is loose, it won't run, it just spins. From the photo I can find of the unit, it looks like that second wheel is below it, but I can't be certain. Let me know how you make out. Please rate and comment, thank you,
