Chirping sounds could be a bird stuck inside. If you are not missing any birds then I would suspect you need a drop of oil on the pin behind the bobbin case.

RE: Euro-Pro 9000 Mechanical Sewing Machine "Won't Sew"

I am wondering if you tried unplugging it for at least 1 minute to let it reset the onboard computer (sometimes they need to be unplugged overnight).

You need to find out exactly where the noise is coming from, any unusual noise could be expensive in the long run.

Viking 6460 not zigzagging

Looks like this is an older machine--probably mechanical. When was the last time it was cleaned and oiled? Mechanical machines need frequent cleaning and regular oil with a good quality sewing machine oil. If your machine's zig-zag has seized, it's most likely because the old oil has solidified and stuck the parts together.

Here's a link that may be helpful:

The needle to sew with on the machine wont go up and down, but it was working last night. What do I do?

Depends on your machine's brand and model. Older mechanical machines with this problem usually need cleaning and oiling (consult your manual). Computerized machines...well, you're at the mercy of electronics...

I recently went from a stretch stitch setting back to regular and now the fabric doesn't advance when sewing. I have to pull the fabric. Is there a simple fix for this.

some machines have a lever to raise and lower the feed dogs it may be located in the bobbin opening area or on the right side of the machine. if you have a book you could locate it in there if not what is the make and model of your machine and I will try to help

My sewing machine gears jammed.

One or more of the bushings is seized, the machine needs to disassembled, the bushings removed, cleaned, re-lubricated. Not something you can do yourself.

Oiling a Jonome 6600

Remove the plate and bobbin case, beneath it will be a small round hole in the center. Inside the hole is a fluffy piece of absorbant material called the wick. DO NOT REMOVE IT! Place one drop of sewing machine oil on the wick. While you have the machine opened up, you should remove all the dust. I use the small brush that comes with the machine. Replace the bobbin case and make sure that it is clean too. Replace the plate. Lastly add a couple of drops of sewing machine oil to a q-tip and use it to apply oil to the needle bar above the needle clamp.

If your machine continues to squeek then bring it to a professional sewing machine repair technician and pay for the service to have it professionally cleaned and tune up. It is not worth damaging you machine over a few dollars well spent.
