Feed dog stopped moving. Is this something I can fix or should I cough up $150 for the repair?

Have the feed dogs been left down? If not, then they may need a clean, take a toothpick or toothbrush and gently clear all the ridges as threads and debris get stuck in there and stop it doing its job of moving material.

How do i take the plastick covers off the mershine

I think you mean the buttons have stuck. Try reading the manual for this unit and if you no longer have the manual, you could try to use a toothpick to gently try to encourage Tue buttons to unstick. Many of these use a small button to release the covers or a screw that can be removed with a screwdriver to gain access.

How do I fix a sewing machine that will only go in reverse?

Is the reverse switch stuck ? Sometimes they get a lot of gunk around them that sort of builds up and stops them moving, and it may be on the inside, rather than where it's easy to see. Might try to use something very slender, maybe a nail file or toothpick to see if you can remove anything from around the switch. Maybe a wee drop of penetrating oil may help dissolve any gunk that's stuck around it, but put a towel under to catch any that leaks through. If possible, remove the screws in the machine body to see if you can remove the exterior casing and get at the underside of the switch. If the switch appears to be ok, I think you'll need a repair shop.

When you say it was cleaned, do you mean on the outside, maybe the bobbin case, or did you have it serviced, where someone removed the casing and cleaned and oiled the entire working assembly inside ? If so, did they guarantee the work ? Most shops give you at least a month on their repairs, but that might not be any help by now and believe me I know how expensive it can be to get repairs done.

Do you have the model number ? Sears used to be pretty good at repairing their machines but they're not as good as they used to be, I'm afraid. But Kenmore is a common brand and most repair shops should be able to mend them unless it's a part they can't get hold of. Ebay can be a good source for parts like that.

Hi. I have a Juki DDL-5550N. While I was sewing the needle broke so I replaced it then the was a noise like a click and the the froze. ..I cannot move the wheel that moves the needle holder at all, it's...

first did you find the broken needle. A lot of times the part that broke off will fall down in your hook assembly and lock up the machine. That is what it sounds like. If its the drop in bobbin the take your needle plate off and check your bobbin case. It probably has popped out of where it should be. Take it out make sure there is nothing in the hook area and put the bobbin case back in. That should fix your probalem

My Singer Futura SES 2000 wheel is locked up and ERROR E4 (Safty Device Activated) HELP !!!

This happened to me once. I know it happens for different reasons. My problem was a thread 'locked' under the bobbin carriage. I opened the machine underneath, where is only one screw and found the thread locked between two wheels. If this is not your case, maybe inside the upper case? Also try to change the needle, and make sure there is not other strange object inside the hoop arm, or the bobbin cage.

Handwheel spinning but needle does not move

sounds like someone has taken the hand wheel off at some point.

There is a locking washer inside as well as a shim or two. The locking washer needs to be oriented correctly before you put the knob on and screw it in place.

I have a Bernina Activa 230 and my bobbin case is stuck in the machine and it wont come out, Someone Please help me what do I do?

can you unlatch the ring cover device? there is a little release lever on the left just inside the bobbin area which secures a hinged silver square called hook race cover, if you unlatch this, flop the cover forward, then the bobbin case and shuttle should all come out as well.
