SOURCE: Stop Motion Knob

Dear Jim,
I'm sure you have a pair of Channel lock pliers around.Place a fairly thick piece of fabric around the inner knob to keep from scratching it. Grasp it with the pliers while holding the handwheel and turn it to the left. IF you can't hold the wheel to keep it from slipping, place a screwdriver or something else under the needle set screw area, turn the wheel until the set screw is resting against the set screw and then turn the inner knob with the pliers.

SOURCE: Hand wheel won't turn

The belts needed for this machine are very specific in size, particularly the small one. The wrong belts will not work.

Look carefully at the bracket that holds the pulley. There are two screws that hold it in place. Loosen them slightly and run the machine and the pulley bracket may move on its own to where it needs to be. If not, you must find the right spot where it is tight enough not to slip and not too tight to bind.

SOURCE: took stop motion knob off how do the pieces go

You should have a three pronged washer, put that on first anyway round, then put the stop motion wheel on and tighten fineger tight, tighten the small screw that should be on the stop motion wheel and tighten a bit more, if it does not tighten up take the stop motion wheel off and put the three pronged washer in a different position.

Usually when you pull the clutch knob out it disengages the sewing machine needle shaft. At least, that is how my 2 Kenmore's work. You can always take your machine into Sears sewing department and ask the sewing machine salespeople for help, they are really helpful in my area and more than happy to help you for free. Good luck

Stop motion knob will not disengage the needle when winding a bobbin


Hi,
The stop motion knob on most older sewing machines is very much the same. You should find a small screw on the face of the knob. Loosen this but don't take it all the way out, it is real easy to lose and hard to find a replacement. Loosen it until you can turn the knob counterclockwise past the stop. Now remove the knob and there will be funny shaped washer underneath. Pay attention to how it goes on, you will have to put it back the same way.
Now to the "why" of your problem. The assembly has run dry, no oil, and the hand wheel should turn freely on the center shaft. You may be able to get some oil in with no problem or you may have to remove the motor belt to remove the hand wheel.
I find this a lot on old machines, nothing broken, just no oil.
Good luck,
Bob

I bought a dual sew sewing machine, Insturction model says Model DS-2000/DS-3000 from someone that was moving today. They have only used it once. I wanted to start by threading the bobbin. The problem...


unfortunately if you weren't able to test the machine before purchase you may have bought a dud. depending on where it was stored, it could be seized up. Non the less, any reputable sewing machine repair shop will help you with this specific prob for little or no cost

Necchi 575FA runs heavy, wheel barely turns.


It is the bit that rotates the bobbin case back and forth in a "shuttle" motion.
It sounds like it would be worth exploring the idea that it is time for a service !!

Hand wheel loose


In the middle of the stop motion screw wheel there is a screw, undo the screw and unscrew the stop motion wheel all the way off, you will now see a three pronged washer, take it off and put it in a different position, put the stop motion wheel back on and just tighten finger tight, tighten the small screw all the way, now loosen the stop motion wheel and press on the foot control gently, the balance wheel should move with moving the machine, if the machine turns then start over again, you can put the three pronged washer upside down if you wish.

There is cluch on the handwheel that connect motion,try to tighen this If negative,There are two small bevel gear (hard PVC )connecting to the upper crankshaft where the handwheel was connected.This transmit motion when motor run, most commonly the vertical rod where one bevel gear was connected maybe broken or viceversa at the upper crankshafting that holding the bevel drive gear is broken try to check this.

Handwheel on Sewing machine no longer moves needle.


Actually you should have a "set screw" in the hand wheel. The set screw is usally locked down tight to keep the hand wheel from spinning freely. I f you can run the machine slowly and hold the hand wheel in one place but the machine continues running, then you do need to replace the "set screw". If you replace it you will find that you can offset some of the machines vibration by where you lock the wheel down. Trial and error is the only way to achive this adjustment, kind of like balancing the tires on your car.
