Question about Sewing Machines
The right knob/bobin rewinder and to make machine work is brokken will not move needle up and down
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
- 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.

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.
