Sounds like the drive from the motor to the needle head has worn or is broken. You really need an engineer for this one. Hope this helps.

Check for thread jams... hopefully that's the problem and not a bent shaft in the thing.

On my Kenmore sewing machine Model 1756 when I press the pedal the needle does not move. When I turn the hand wheel the needle does not move. any help out there? or is the machine done for


Disengage the sewing mechanism (like you are winding a bobbin)
If the motor runs fine that way then you have a machine that is frozen.
If that is the case take off the top, bottom, needle plate, needle bar and bobbin cover. Spray all moving parts down with Mean Green and let it sit for about an hour. After that blow it out with canned air.
See if there is any improvement. If so you just need to clean out all the old lubricants. Sometimes I take a hair dryer to loosen the sludge up.

Sounds like your worm drive gear is striped and needs to de replaced. If you twist the handel on the end of machine does the needle move up and down.

Check the handwheel. If it is pulled out, the clutch is not engaged. Try pushing it in! (It would be really nice if the solution is this easy!)
