Unplug the machine & look at the foot pedal. any dust,etc around the edges can keep the switch from making. open the foot pedal (probably has 4 screws) find the little switch, it probably just needs to be cleaned. if it still wont work search for a new one using the numbers on the side of the switch.

Bobbin won't wind - foot pedal working but bobbin won't turn ES2020 New *unused just stored since purchase from new*


Your new but stored machine has sat long enough that any oils from the factory have become gummy and or dried out. I would take it in and have the pros service it. But for now you might try....

Turning the hand wheel by hand while you press on the pedal. This MAY free up the machine enough for the motor to take over.

Needle won't stay in left position when using zip foot - bernina 1530


Is it possible you're using a later foot with the sensor lenses on it ... your machine has the optical sensor for the automatic buttonhole foot and I'm wondering if you're getting it confused by using a foot that is not designed to go with that machine ?

Babylock Imagine serger was working fine, now light is only thing working, tried another foot pedal and still won't start? Any thoughts?


Can you manually turn the flywheel (towards you) - does the needle and loopers move then through the normal sequence?

If the answer is no, then its most likely something in the drive gear path, possibly a nylon gear inside it that has failed. This can be replaced but probably means a major dismantle of the internals.

You may want to take it to a baby lock dealer and see if they confirm that this is the fault.

I had this gear replaced in my Bernette 334D and it cost $250, part was only $25 of that charge.

I have a Singer Sewing Machine #9444. There is no electrical getting to my machine since the light doesn't work and the foot pedal doesn't work after I turn on the machine


Try replacing the light bulb or rerouting the wire so it won't be affected by the light bulb or the foot pedle. Becarefull though because if you rerout the the wireing in the foot pedle you're taking away the off/on swich so it'll stay on. You may want to open up the foot pedle and see if there is anything loose, not conected or broken. The pedal is used as an on/off swich so it may just be stuck in the off position and not making contact when you press down on it so it won't turn on.
If you can't fined a blulb for it by the way you can disconect the socket where you screw it in and install a new one. Make sure the new one will fit in the same hole though. Then it should be easy finding a bulb for it. PLEASE MAKE SURE THE MACHINE IS DISCONECTED BEFOR YOU DO ANY OF THESE THINGS. 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,

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

When pressing the foot control the machine won't run, it shows the presser foot blinking on the screen even when the presser foot lever is down.


check the connections, if they are good, your foot pedal has a short in it, so its not completing the circuit when depressed

The machine keeps giving me an error message with a diagram showing the foot should be down. It is, but it won't sew anything. I can thread a bobbin, so I know there is power to the machine. Also, when...


that presser foot with that black thing that is just flopping around... well when the presser foot is down that thing should be locked into the side hole. when you have the presser foot up, put it into the side hole, fiddle with it, move it around til you find that hole, then drop the presser foot it should be locked on it now. That T presser foot needs that.
