Thread is caught in the hook...Remove the upper thread and bobbin case, turn the hand wheel backwards and forwards by hand and remove the thread remands. Good Luck

Can you turn the handwheel manually? If so, most likely your foot control is malfunctioning.

How can I fix a stuck needle bar on my Bernina 730?


If this is a Bernina 730 Record, it needs to be cleaned and oiled. Do not attempt to run the motor if the mechanics are stuck as it could damage the motor.

Consult your owner's manual in the Maintenance section, use only good quality sewing machine oil (NOT old stale oil, 3-in-1, WD-40, or cooking oil) and apply 1-2 drops every place that metal rubs on metal (while you hand-rotate the wheel). Pay particular attention to your problem areas--the needlebar area and the handwheel area (Do NOT oil the cams, the belts, or the plastic gears!!) To speed it up, you can direct hot air from a handheld hairdryer into the internal mechanics. (You may have to repeat several times over several days depending how "stuck" things are.)

If you are impatient, try to find a bottle of liquid Tri-Flow Synthetic Lube at the hardware store or bike shop and use it in place of the sewing machine oil. Once the machine is running smoothly again, you can use sewing machine oil or continue to use Tri-Flow in its place.

In the future, following the instructions in your manual, clean and apply 1-2 drops oil to the shuttle/race every time you change a bobbin (about every 8 hours of constant sewing), do a thorough but light oil as explained above every 40 hours of sewing, or if in storage or not in regular use, every 6 months. If it hasn't been used in a while, always give it some TLC before asking it to work for you.

Motor stopped; locked handwheel


Remove the needles. See if the handwheel moves now. Since it's a new machine, consult with the seller.

My Shark 7133 slowed down while sewing and stopped. The handwheel won't turn at all. I cleaned the bobbin area but it still won't work. The light switches on and the machine motor reves up but...


Slacken the stop motion as if to wind a bobbin and press on the foot control, if the motor runs really fast then you have either thread stuck in the bobbin case area or you may need to oil the machine

The handwheel is stuck down. It seemed to be sewing perfectly, and then stopped. It is a brand new machine,so not really sure what's wrong.


If its brand new, perhaps give the dealer a call for some help troubleshooting your issue.

Not sure what you mean by handwheel? do you have a manual with this machine that you could check out, most manuals will have trouble shooting at the back as well as the instructions to use it.
