Depending on the engine, you may have a seized engine. If it a 4mix engine, it may have dropped a valve.

Does the motor turn at all. Does it hum when turning it on. It may be burned or the pulley on the motor is loose. Tighten it up and that should get it . Let me know if that works.

Nordictrack ASR 630 display won't start

see the steps and fix it according. God bless you
Console 1

Remove the bolts or screws securing the console to the upright assembly. Lift the console and confirm that the cable connections are secure. Remove the cover from the console's battery bay and install a fresh set of batteries. Replace the battery cover.

Detach the ends of the pedals from the crank axles. Remove the left and right disc shields and side shields. Inspect the interior of the base unit and locate the flywheel.

Inspect the flywheel as it turns. Locate the magnet installed on the flywheel. Turn the flywheel until the magnet passes in front of the nearby reed switch. Loosen the screw securing the switch in place. Rotate the switch to reduce the gap between it and the magnet. Tighten the screw.

Replace the left and right disc shields and side shields. Reattach the ends of the pedals to the crank axles.

Baby lock bl4-736d won't stitch--It has not been used in about 6 years. It worked fine the last time it was used. I don't know where to oil or even if that is the problem.

If your machine has not been used in six years then it could have siezed up. If there is a threading up diagram inside the front looper cover then it may show the red oiling dots too. These are usually on the upper and lower loopers where they move through another metal part. And sometimes a red spot at the back of the stitching platform to oil internally.

But firstly, can you turn the flywheel manually towards you? Does the loopers and needles move through a stitch sequence when you do? If there is no movement and the flywheel is turning then probably a gear has failed in the main drive shaft, many machines have nylon gears now to lessen need for lubrication but the gear itself may split as it ages. Can be replaced but usually means dismantling most of the machine to do so. Definitely something for the BL technician though.

If you can move the flywheel and things are moving then I'd suggest you oil all the metal moving parts, rub some oil onto both blades and give everything a good clean out. Then manually turn it through stitch sequence several times to spread the oil, then plug it in and see if the machine will now run. Just take it slow and gentle. Then change the needles and thread it up and see if you can get it to chain off.

Hope this helps.

Hi, you are correct, the key will be sheered. Remove the top shroud and flywheel nut, then while pulling upwards on the flywheel have someone strike downwards on the crankshaft with a hammer and brass drift. Do not use a steel drift as it will damage the crankshaft. Hope this helps, regards Phil.
