Mine did the same thing, I found that I had to make sure the needle was down (?) for the bobbin winder to work. Maybe yours will too. Hope it helps, I haven't been impressed with this machine yet. My current problem is the auto tension is not working and my thread keeps bunching up when I sew more than 5 inches. Real Pain.

SOURCE: Hand wheel will turn backwards, but not forward

here is some troubleshooting
Download your manual.

Ok I know that youve checked this, but I have to ask.
Pg 39
Check and make sure the reverse lever isnt engaged.

I'm looking at pg 27 and see you have a traditional bobbin casing (not a drop in) make sure your bobbin is wound well and the case is inserted correctly. (they are picky)
Change your needle make sure its in right and tight. (I have bent many a needle just slightly, and it causes huge issues with this particular type of bobbin casing)
Pg 35 gives a test for the bobbin tension. If your thread rolls, the tension is too loose, OR the case may have gotten damaged.

Lets see if this helped.
Good luck

Make sure the lock is tight. If it is even slightly loose, the wheel will spin without moving the needle.

It needs a good cleaning of lint, thread etc. take your bobbin case out and make sure that there is nothing in there. DO NOT TURN YOUR HAND WHEEL BACKWARDS! It will mess up your timing. If you cannot free it up take it for service

Perhaps you have bent the needle. Or perhaps you have shifted the bobbin somewhat while removing jammed fabric.

Why won't my old manual singer sewing machine needle move?


1. Disengage the bobbin winder.That is done by moving the arm away from the center wheel. 2. Tighten the hand wheel. When you tighten you should have resistance like a jar has. If this doesn't then continue. 3. Loosen the small screw attached to the hand wheel center lug. Now, move the hand wheel into a position where it will tighten. 4. Go ahead and tighten the small screw. Now, it should move.

Singer CG500 Needle hits the needle plate. Needle was replaced. Verified needle in correctly. Tried hand wheel - still hits. Machine has yet to be used!!


Unless you need all the bells and whistles to sew get you a pre-1930 treadle or handcrank. I have 2 electric Singers, 1947 model 66 and 1948 201-2 both with attachments. Also I have 1903 Singer handcrank made in Scotland. The plastic new one just don't have the ability to hang in there .... All my pre 1930 Singers sew... I love them!

I can not turn the wheel to fill my bobbin. And the needle keps trying to sew and after awhile the safety beep comes on how do I fill it.


1. Read and understand your manual. The days of turning a wheel to disengage the needle are pretty much LONG GONE.

2. Put your bobbin on top of the machine where it goes and slide it to the left. This action disengages the needle.

Have a singer 3221/3232 cannot disengage handwheel to fill bobbin what am I doing wrong


Are you sure you have to pull or push? It looks to me like you just slide the bobbin winder spindle to the right to engage.

Here's a manual for your machine... I'm sure more specific info is in there.

HAND CRANK WON'T MOVE NEEDLE SEEMS TO HAVE LOST CONTACT WITH GEAR


adjustment info here. http://www.parts.singerco.com/IPinstManuals/15.pdf

And here is a manual for you. http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/34_sm15.pdf

Those stop motion pieces must be put together correctly. Also make sure your needle is fully seated into the needle bar. Also look for any binding of metal parts. I had a 128 that came to me with a bent take up lever that would catch and make hand cranking difficult.

Good luck.. you'll love your old singer when you get it going well. Take your time and try not to get to frustrated.

One more thing... this blog is awesome if you are working on old singers.

My Model # 1120 Singer sewing machine needle will not go up and down when motor is pressed. The bobbin winder, however, spins.


It sounds like your machine is set to wind the bobbin right now, so the drive is disengaged. That would explain why the bobbin winder pin is the only part moving. Check your manual for how to reset the machine when you are finished winding the bobbin.

Most machines have a way to disengage the drive for the needle while filling the bobbin. Then once the bobbin is filled, you re-engage the drive. Some machines have a separate, smaller hand-wheel that turns and clicks into place. Some machines automatically reengage the drive once the bobbin pin snaps into place away from the drive belt.

I hope this helps!

Hand wheel is stuck


hi there,
well,stuck up hand wheel, is due to mechanical obstruction inside machine,bushing on shafting need to oil,and on handwheel bushing near clutch there is oil port there. since hand wheel are connected to cam shaft with set of gears and pulley is coupled to motor pulley,and other linkage under bobbins,shuttle race etc,broken gears are most common causes of stuck up handwheel,we can consider also the brush carbon,when worn out and damage the rotor commutator brush.if you can open the cover of motor below side of handwheel,you can see the pulley and motor assembly.also on top of machine there an opening to see the top gear assembly,this should be done by service technician.try to bring to nearest service center if still under warranty claim this for lesser maintenance cost.have a nice day,don't forget to rate me.thank's.
