Question about Sewing Machines
Singer 7470 hand wheel is stuck. Cleaned bobbin case but is still stuck. Help.
well,stuck up hand wheel, is due to mechanical obstruction inside machine,bushing on shafting need to oil,and on handwheel bushing near clutch there is oil port there. since hand wheel are connected to cam shaft with set of gears and pulley is coupled to motor pulley,and other linkage under bobbins,shuttle race etc,broken gears are most common causes of stuck up handwheel,we can consider also the brush carbon,when worn out and damage the rotor commutator brush.if you can open the cover of motor below side of handwheel,you can see the pulley and motor assembly.also on top of machine there an opening to see the top gear assembly,this should be done by service technician.try to bring to nearest service center if still under warranty claim this for lesser maintenance cost.have a nice day,don't forget to rate me.thank's.

I just took my Singer Simple 3116 apart because the hand wheel was stuck. I could turn it clockwise and it was fine, but if I tried to turn it counter clockwise, it would jam up and not sew. I figured what the heck, for what it would cost me to have it repaired, I could almost buy a new one. Now I must say though, I am very mechanically inclined. after close inspection, I noticed a bar that hangs down by the hand wheel on the inside. When the bobbin winder is engaged this bar stops the needle from going up and down. Disengaged it should let the motor freely turn all gears and such so that you can sew. this bar or rod was not disengaging on my machine. After fiddling with it for a minute, I was able to get everything working perfectly.
Hope this helps.
