Singer 3232 machine was sewing fine now motor runs but needle does not move up and down


Check if the machine is in the bobbin winding mode. To wind the bobbin, the bobbin spindle has to be moved to the right. (The hand wheel will not turn if the bobbin spindle is in this position.) If it is, move the spindle to the left.

If the hand wheel turns, then check for a thread jam. Remove the top thread and take out the bobbin case. Gently turn the hand wheel forward and backwards until the thread comes free of the hook in the bobbin race. Follow this by cleaning any lint from the bobbin race of the sewing machine.

The last possibility is that the belt has failed. This belt transfers the energy from the motor to the needle bar. One source of the belt is http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/motor-belt-singer-007158xxl5.aspx . You can find YouTube videos on changing the belt. There are other parts that transfer the forces form the belt to the needle bar. However, I suggest you find a good sewing machine mechanic if any of these parts fail.

The manual has good pictures of the bobbin spindle on page 11 (page 18 of the PDF). Singer has the manual on their support page: http://www.singerco.com/support/instruction-manuals . The direct link to the manual is http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/e06cb85928ace9753f1a7124f4a2df6168ffecf0.pdf .

I hope this helps.

My vintage kenmore hand wheel was frozen now it turns manually but not when I use the foot pedal, then it won't turn


Either you will replace the belt or have to adjust the motor/belt tension.
1. The motor can be loosened by a couple of bolts. This allows the motor to be moved to adjust the tension of the belt.
2. The tension can be adjusted properly by turning the motor on with the foot pedal; low speed.
3. While the motor is running move the motor in a fashion that will loosen or tighten the belt. The correct location will allow the motor to run at it's highest speed.
4. Re-tighten the bolts and retest the machine.

Sorry the needle is not going down,


Needles will not go down for:
1. The lock on the hand wheel isn't locking. Try this
a. Loosen the lock like you're going to wind a bobbin.
b. Loosen screw that is on the side of the lock. (sometimes front)
c. Tighten the lock just like when you're going to sew.
d. Tighten the screw that is on the side of the lock.(sometimes front)
e. Turn hand wheel by hand. Did the needle rise and fall?
2. The drive belt isn't moving the shaft.
a. Remove the top of the sewing machine.
b. You will most likely have to remove the panel on the end where the hand wheel is.
c. Turn your hand wheel to see if the belt is moving the shaft or is it broken?
d. Replace if you need to. (look at wear). Loosen the motor.
e. Make your motor run (foot pedal) slowly. Tighten the belt by pushing on the motor while it is running. When the motor is placed at the right place the motor will be moving with very little drag. (This will need a listening ear)
f. At this point tighten motor and retest for the speed and drag.

How check motor burned up


Loosen the belt and try to see if it will run. If it runs then you need to redo your adjustment. The belt can't be too tight or too loose and it must be perfectly aligned. The best way to do this is remove the top thread. While pushing the foot speed control adjust the belt tighter, more loose and side to side until the motor is at it's maximum speed. Tighten the motor and retry. While doing this be careful!

THE belt that runs top to bottom does not move,do i need a new belt?whats the #?


If the belt is in good shape it may be either a seized drive train or a bad motor. Remove the belt and check to see if the motor runs when the treadle is depressed. Try turning the machine by hand and feel for resistance and listen for grinding, squealing or rubbing noises.

Necchi Model 535 FA - Replaced drive belt, after running machine for approximately 5 minutes, machine locks down with motor running, motor pully burns plastic belt into.


The motor is running.That is confirmed that motor is fine.But the wires from motor has to be checked.the motor connections are getting short and this is causing the plastic belt to burn.Check the motor as well as its connection.
thanks.

Belt came off


well that is very nice idea you can fix with your self provide talls most commonly use.Set of screw driver,open and socket wrench,pliers etc...Remove the top cover plate by loosening bolt holding the cover and cover besides the handwheel where the motor was installed besure it was unplug from ac source(No power)Check the motor holder that attaching from casing.You can see the motor coupled by the belt.In the motor holder there is a bolt slot adjustment for tensioning belt tighning and loosening.If you want to disconnect the belt and replaced loosen the tension and pull out the belt.Sometime belt are sliping to the pulley it affect
the sewing machine operation,you can tighten from adjusting the tension of the belt.adjust not so tight after adjusting try to run manually first by turning handwheel freely if the motor will run freely with out obtruction no power supply.If your satiesfied try to run with power supply but jag twice first to be sure no problem occured before continous operation.

When you tighten the belt it is a problem if it isn't adjusted right. You need to loosen the belt again. When you are pushing on the foot control the motor will begin to run. At the same time you can adjust the belt by carefully moving the motor. You will notice the motor speed will change as you do this. Stop adjusting the motor belt when you hear the motor speed at it's highest speed. Tighten down. Now, give it a try.
