Why is my needle not moving?

open the end cover of the machine and see if the needle shaft is moving up or down
it is possible that a screw has come loose or an arm has broken

Needle shaft will not move up and down

Broken motor belt or the belt has slipped off. Read the instructions of your machine and take the needle arm cover off to look at it. If it's off the pulley, simply put it back on. If broken, remove it and buy one of the same type and length.

My needle hit one of the pins holding the fabric together. Usually it snaps the needle in half and I just replace it. This time, it jammed down inside the bobbin housing and I couldn't lift the needle up...

Remove the faceplate, bobbin and case. See if you can see the bottom part of the needle. Use a flashlight to look down in the bobbin area. Put a magnet on a pair of long tweezers to magnify it. You can then gently move the tweezers around to grab hold of the broken needle.

Screw has broken in the presserfoot bar. How can I get it out?

If one side of the head is broken you can sometimes get it out by using some needle nose vice grips or pliers. If it has broken off flush with the bar... you'll need to remove the bar from the machine, put it in a bench vice, use a drill bit for metal drill a small hole and use an Easy Out.

Might be easier to just buy a new presser foot bar and screw.

Needle arm stuck

Firstly, do you pull the fabric as it goes through the machine; this is a surefire way to break needles. Tension imbalance shouldn't be breaking a needle; more likely the thread would break if the top tension is too tight. And botton tension shouldn't need adjusting at all.

It may be that your needle is striking the presser foot if you are applying some "pull" to the fabric at the back of the foot.

But sewing very heavy fabrics is a challenge for many domestic machines - upholstery, heavy denim and canvas is tough going for many machines. Some tough mechanical machines will manage it but many won't. You can try using a roller or walking (even feed) foot as this may help with moving the fabric through but often the feed dogs just can't grip and move the heavy fabric enough. If you need to sew heavy fabrics regularly maybe consider finding a 2nd hand industrial straight stitch machine such as the Singer 20U.

In the case of your Bernettte, remove the needle plate (two screws), pressure foot, stub of needle and bobbin and then search the bobbin rotary hook area and see if there is a piece of needle stuck anywhere, you may need to turn the machine upside down and see if it falls out of the race area. I think this machine has a plastic horizontal bobbin case ??? If so, you will probably find that this has dislodged and may have been struck by the needle so remove it and give it a good visual check for damage, if there is a pierce mark, then give this a file down with an emery board to smoooth it. While it is out, see if the flywheel will now rotate the rotary hook fully.

Then reassemble by putting the bobbin case back in lining up the mark on the case with the stopper in the rotary hook, replacing the needle plate, pressure foot and a new needle.

If you can't get it to unlock at all, then it will need to go to a technician for repair.

I have a Pfaff 1475cd when turn it on and try to sew it makes a grinding sound and will only sew a long straight stitch on any stitch - at first it would do it occasionally and then stop - but now it...

The problem is the swing stitch (ZigZag) arm actuator bar has either popped out of the servo motor that operates the swing arm. Or the connector is broken or servo motor is dead. When you turn on the machine the needle bar is suppose to do a little dance (couple of twitches back and forth) and the machine is ready to go. Yours grinds (not dancing) because of the swing arm bar is popped out of it's holder. Good news is ... it is probably not broken and just needs to be put back in place though it is worn and thus the reason it popped out. That swing arm bar is easily accessed just under the plastic tray in the top of the machine where the thread holder sits. Bad news is ... That thread holder tray is a PITA to get off with out cracking anything (lots of patience). There are just two small philips screws securing it **BUT** the carry handle , the top flip cover and the right end light cover all have to come out to remove the PITA tray . More Good News though may be able to repair with out removing the tray by ... First (with machine OFF) try to just push the needle bar side to side a bit (like you are trying to make it ZigZag manually ) and listen for a click. Then turn the machine on (Power button ON) and watch for the needle bar dance ? (you just fixed it). Note, It does takes a bit of effort to move the needle bar side to side but don't force it hard.

Janome Needle plate and needles hitting something underneath

The broken pins are called chaining pins and are tricky for the home user to replace without risking damage to the needle plate as they are difficult to remove and the tiny burr used to hold them firm can easily open up and no longer grip the pin.
There are only a couple of things under the needleplate that are likely to collide with the needles. 1. Lower looper - with the needles 2. Both Loopers colliding with each other - not with the needles 3. Needle guards attached to lower looper - with the needles 4. Fixed Needle guard - with the needles
If you remove the needleplate and VERY gently turn the handwheel you should be able to see and feel where the collision is occuring and have a better idea of the issue.
I would strongly advise that you do not try to operate the machine until you are sure that the colliding components are adjusted. Broken loopers are approx $65 AUD and guards, tho' only about $20 AUD require some finesse in adjustment. Chain Pins approx $6 AUD
My recommendation is to speak with your local Janome dealer for advice and an approximate price to repair, replace or adjust as the case may be.
Your country's Janome website is certain to have a Dealer Locator page to list the nearest to you.
This is one occasion where it is sensible to call on the people who do these things routinely rather than try to DIY and make a more expensive hash of it.
