Without seeing the machine it's hard to tell what's wrong with it, look in the manual, check about the oiling of the machine, but if oiling doesn't help then you may have to have the machine checked, if you got the machine at a sewing machine shop, I would suggest calling them and telling them about the problem, if you got it from a individual, then it may need to be checked to see if it needs a adjustment or see if there is a broken part.

Supposedly, Simplicity is made for Tacony. I would start there to ask about parts.

Is this a presser foot lifter?

This sounds as though you are loosing the bearings in the spinning motor, as if it is hard to turn in manual, very tight, the motor bearings are going out, or are about out. You will need to take it to a repair shop for an estimate. If the bearings are of the oilable type, this may take care of the problem. Find the motor and see if it has oil cups on it. Use a 20 weight oil you can get at any hardware store to do this.

How do I get a continuous hem on slacks with my blindstitch hemmer? It skips stitches after going over serged seams.


See if your pressure foot is touching the machine tightly to move the hemmer more steadily. There is a release button on top of the machine push it down if it is up. Hope this helps.

Blind hemmer is "frozen" won't move at all. What can I do?


on a normal sewing machine this usually means the threads are all snagged up in a knot in the bobbin case. Snip your threads, wriggle the fabric out, remove all snagged threads and rethread the machine. I don't know if this will work with your blind hemmer.
