Tip

Sewing machine balance wheel stops.


Hold the wheel with one hand, turn the stop motion screw towards you. Place both feet upon the treadle and turn the balance wheel towards you at the same time allowing the feet to move freely and lightly with the treadle. Continue this until everything moves freely and easily. Do this until the machine can re-start without the balance wheel turning in the wrong direction.
Then tighten the balance wheel. Then place cloth under the presser foot then lower presser foot with the lever.

How do I get the wheel off an old Singer sewing machine model 66


If you are talking about the Balance wheel on the od Singers it is fairly easy.
You first need to remove the small screw in the clutch ( which is the chrome knob in the middle of the balance wheel) Once this is removed you can completely unscrew the clutch and then remove the balance wheel

Wheel is stuck


If the balance wheel appears to be stuck it is usually thread stuck in the raceway

I turned the stop motion knob in order to wind a bobbin and the knob fell off! I have tried to put in back together but now only the knob will move not the balance wheel. As as result the clutch will not...


There should be a washer that fits over the balance wheel, if you dont put that back on the machine wont work.
Check around and see if it fell off when you removed the knob, or check to see if it is stuck inside the knob.

The washer is about 1" in diameter with a couple little tabs on it.
It will only work when installed correctly so if at first you fail just turn the ****** over!

Hand wheel is stuck and machine will not sew


You will probably find that there is a small piece of mthread stuck in the raceway area, either turn the balance wheel backwards so it frees off or take the bobbin and bobbin case out and have a good look, when you take the bobbin and bobbin case out if the machine does not move then you have a problem elsewhere.

Error code 6 (thread in motor but there is none)


If you can turn the balance wheel by hand and the needle goes up and down it may be loose belts, if you can't turn the balance wheel by hand then there is definitely thread stuck somewhere in the raceway

Toyota 2260 sewing machine. When I press the foot pedal, I can hear the motor but the hand wheel seems stuck and therfore the belt does not move.


Chances are you have a small piece of thread stuck in the raceway, turn the balance wheel bac kwards and you may free it off otherwise take out the bobbin and bobbin case and the raceway if you have the type with a drop down gate and clear it.

Singer 328k bobbin winder replacement


Follow these instructions, undo the 2 screws on the right hand side plate where the balance wheel is and take the plate off, undo the screw on the chrome stop motion wheel, undo the stop motion and take it off, take off the 2 pronged washer and notice which way it goes on, not a problem if you can't remember, you should be able to pull the balance wheel back so you can get to the screws on the winder, if you can.t and if you have a problem getting the balance wheel all the way then go the very bottom of the machine and you will see 2 big holes and one of the holes will lead you to a big screw and nylon adjuster, slacken the screw and move the nylon adjust so the belt goes slack, you can not take the balance wheel all the way off to get to the screws on the winder, take the old one off and screw the new one on, whilst you have the balance wheel off it would be wise to put some thin oil on the shaft before you put the balance wheel back on, when you have the balance wheel on and the and the belt round the pulley turn the nylon adjuster so the belt is tight and tighten up the screw, put the side plate back on, put the 3 pronged washer back on, put the stop motion wheel back on and just tighten finger tight then tighten the small screw.
