Question about Necchi 3537 Mechanical Sewing Machine

1 Answer

I have a 537FA, I hear the motor running but it won't sew, I have to turn the wheel to make it move. I suspect the belt is loose but do not know what to do.

Machine will not sew, motor runs but no other parts move. A loose belt is what I suspect.

Did you wind a bobbin before this happened? If so, the winding features may be still engaged. Refer to the manual for this proceedure.

If it is a belt problem, you should be able to hear the motor running. If you cant hear the motor running then it has to be the foot control or cord or possibly the motor.

SOURCE: My Necchi 537fa is sewing sluggish. Motor spins but needle moves slow. What do I do to fix this?

If your Necchi has an external motor, take the belt off and run it.... is the motor sluggish? If so... that's where you start. motors need to be oiled, typically with oil and grease ports on either end of the motor housing.

If the motor spins up nicely,... you need to clean and oil the rest of the machine. Start underneath if the bottom workings are exposed, oil all the places where metal joins metal. Then do the bobbin and feed dog area... then look along the top and sides for oil parts.. give them a drop or two...Finally, see if you can get into the head where the take up lever and such are... oil the needle bar, presser foot bar, etc.

It's a dirty job... so prepare a good space for your machine. Liquid Wrench will help you free up gunked up and rusty parts. Fine grade steel wool (0000) and Cotton swabs help.

Good luck

Kenmore sewing machine motor running belts moving but needle not going up and down


Is there a clutch that allows you to move the fabric through without the needle stitching (usually a knob in the centre of the wheel. That could be loose or worn.

Hi, I just got a Necchi #537FA it has never been used , however it has sat for some time the light comes on ,the belt runs, the bobbin will run but the nettle seems to be locked up will not move


It's an older mechanical machine that has not been used for a long time and probably has not been cleaned or oiled. It is seizing from old dry oil. Avoid using the machine until it has been oiled or the motor could be damaged.

Wheel on right side that controls the needle up and down is very tight...

I have a Necchi model 537FA. When u step on petal, it won't move. Does this machine have 2 BELTS? I only see one. I have oiled before running.


If you don't have any movement or hear the machine attempting to sew, you may have a burnt out pedal.
You should hear a slight hum when pressing on the pedal. If you don't hear a hum, the pedal is probably dead.
These can usually be ordered from the merchant who sold you the machine.

Juki DDL-227 won't spin


:) welcome to the world of industrial machines. The good news is they are typically simple machines.

It is a good habit to take a few minutes to clean and oil your machine before you start sewing. Look for the oil points and give it one drop of quality sewing machine oil in each port.

Now let's try to determine why the hand wheel isn't turning. Loosen and remove the belt from the large reducer wheel under the table to the sewing machine. Try to turn the hand wheel. If it does turn.... Good! If it doesn't turn... we know the problem is in the the machine head and not the wheels below.

Make sure there is no bobbin thread or upper thread. Try to turn the hand wheel again. Anything?

Look carefully at the machine... is the take up lever bent? (personally had this happen with friends helped me move a big machine like this.)

Keep working this way... inspecting the machine until you find the problem. Good luck

I have a babylock 1556 and when I press the foot petal the belt turns, but it won't move the needle up and down. I took off the back so I could watch and see what was going on. I can see the belt...


On the side of the 'knob', look for another wheel that tightens against that, so it engages, that's what it sounds like. When that second wheel is loose, it won't run, it just spins. From the photo I can find of the unit, it looks like that second wheel is below it, but I can't be certain. Let me know how you make out. Please rate and comment, thank you,
Joe

How do you change the belt on a Singer 7462?


Hi,
By removing the top cover, or the turning wheel cover,
you will be able to see the belt.
If the belt is not broken, then try to adjust the belt tension,
by adjusting either the height of the motor, or the tension wheel.
