Try using a can of compressed air in the hole where the bobbin winder pin sets and then push back in operating position. Also, take out bobbin holder under the metal plate below the needle. That entire assembly should come out and go back in easily. Again use the compressed air to get any fabric fuzz away from moving parts. Check your manual or online for oiling instructions. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Needle wont go up or down

If the Handwheel (big knob) is moving but the needle is not moving, you need to engage the clutch ........depending on the model

- push handwheel in to engage, pull out to disengage
or
- if there is a smaller wheel inside the handwheel, tighten to engage, loosen to release.

BUT if all is jammed........

Check for threads that are jamming the motion of the hook around where the bobbin case is

If your bobbin goes in from the top, remove the needleplate and bobbincase remove thread jams by gently rocking handwheel back and forth until released.

Clean around the hook race with a rag moistened with methylated spirit, surgical spirit or similar, then reassemble.

If front loading, open the door for bobbin case area, release 2 retaining clips holding the collar on (take note of the position/orientation for when you re-assemble....even take a digi photo to refer to !?!).....
......then just do jam removal & clean out in much the same way as for the top loader.

In all cases, don't force too much or be too brutal, gentle and patient works best, try to judge where the jam is caught and work with it slowly......you may need to cut jammed threads, just ensure all are removed before you re-assemble.

SOURCE: Handwheel on Sewing machine no longer moves needle.

Actually you should have a "set screw" in the hand wheel. The set screw is usally locked down tight to keep the hand wheel from spinning freely. I f you can run the machine slowly and hold the hand wheel in one place but the machine continues running, then you do need to replace the "set screw". If you replace it you will find that you can offset some of the machines vibration by where you lock the wheel down. Trial and error is the only way to achive this adjustment, kind of like balancing the tires on your car.

How do i rethread the bobin


You have to get the machine to switch its gear to wind the bobbin instead of sewing( needle up and down). There are two ways most machines do this...on older or simpler machines you pop the wheel that makes the needle go up and down ( right side of the machine) either in or out! There may be a round knob in the center that pops in or out... Other machines make you move the rod that the bobbin sits on for winding move or swing to engage the gear. There should be a path for it to slide along if that is what your machine does. Good luck!

Janome 350 embroidery machine......when I try to rewind the thread, ( shifting the stick to the right ) the needle keeps moving up and down.....any kind of help would be very appreciated.....the deale


Try to find the exact spot on the wheel to make the needle stop. Try different spots to get the one that does not move. You may need a service. You could also remove the thread until you are ready. The needle would go up and down but without thread will not cause havoc.

I have a babylock 1556 and when I press the foot petal the belt turns, but it won't move the needle up and down. I took off the back so I could watch and see what was going on. I can see the belt...


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,
Joe

LED that illuminates the stitch selection bar quit working as did the up/down needle button.


Check your bobbin spindle. If engaged (pushed toward the right) LED will not light. When the clutch knob is pulled out, when you wind a bobbin, the up & down needle will not move. So you must push the clutch knob in again to let the up & down needle go up and down. The clutch knob on my machine is in the large hand wheel upper right side of my machine.
