SOURCE: Hand wheel will turn backwards, but not forward

here is some troubleshooting

manual

Ok I know that youve checked this, but I have to ask.
Pg 39
Check and make sure the reverse lever isnt engaged.

I'm looking at pg 27 and see you have a traditional bobbin casing (not a drop in) make sure your bobbin is wound well and the case is inserted correctly. (they are picky)
Change your needle make sure its in right and tight. (I have bent many a needle just slightly, and it causes huge issues with this particular type of bobbin casing)
Pg 35 gives a test for the bobbin tension. If your thread rolls, the tension is too loose, OR the case may have gotten damaged.

Lets see if this helped.
Good luck

SOURCE: machine locked up and makes a beeping sound

There may be thread caught in the bobbin area.

Turn off the power and check the manual for maintenance.

Once the area is clean and the bobbin case back in place, turn the machine back on.

If this does not resolve the issue, the machine will need an authorized sewing machine tech to repair it.

SOURCE: turned the hand wheel the wrong way (clockwise)

I think that all you have to do is put a new 80/12 needle in,that is what they set the timing with, and clean your machine thoroughly, take out your bobbin and brush the area. I do not think that it is your timing from turning your wheel the wrong way,

It needs a good cleaning of lint, thread etc. take your bobbin case out and make sure that there is nothing in there. DO NOT TURN YOUR HAND WHEEL BACKWARDS! It will mess up your timing. If you cannot free it up take it for service

How to deactivate the safety device on the Singer Futura SES 1000 embroidery machine? How can I get the hand wheel to turn again to get the machine to sew/embroider?


You can't--something is stopping the wheel from turning, and until you find out what is stopping it, your machine will be locked up. Take a look below the bobbin case, and you'll see a ***** holding a little door. It allows you to clean and see on the other side of the bobbin basket. Chances are, there's something like a broken off needle stopping the gear that turns the hook. It can also be caused by threads wrapped around the tension disks, or around the inside of the hand wheel itself. The hand wheel can be removed by removing the cap in the center--it is hiding a ***** that holds the wheel.

How do I add thread to the bobbin on Singer sewing machine 3114?


Your repair shop will have to fix the handwheel, but you can still wind your bobbin. UNTHREAD the machine completely, and take the needle out. Set up your thread to wind the bobbin, and push the winder over until it clicks. Wind your bobbin. I don't have a picture of your model; this is just standard.

Why won't my old manual singer sewing machine needle move?


1. Disengage the bobbin winder.That is done by moving the arm away from the center wheel. 2. Tighten the hand wheel. When you tighten you should have resistance like a jar has. If this doesn't then continue. 3. Loosen the small screw attached to the hand wheel center lug. Now, move the hand wheel into a position where it will tighten. 4. Go ahead and tighten the small screw. Now, it should move.

How do you remove the hand wheel on a singer model #648 sewing machine


Sounds like you might have a broken gear in the transmission. Since the Touch and Sew series (aka Touch and Swear, Sew and Throw, etc.) are so touchy about adjustments, I'd probably take this one to a good sewing machine mechanic and let him/her do the heavy lifting on this.

Why is my singer SEWING MACHINE prelude HAND WHEEL RESISTING


Make sure the bobbin winder is in the position away from the bobbin stopper. When you fill a bobbin, you have to push the "spindle" towards the handwheel. If you do not push the "spindle" back into position (away from the handwheel), the wheel will remain locked.

Singer 401a - hand wheel will not move needle except to hand crank


Make sure the lock is tight. If it is even slightly loose, the wheel will spin without moving the needle.
