    if the flywheel on the motor spins then why is the machine not moving and the motor atleast complaining i think the spool case is jammed up and the wheel the belt supplies is cracked also check the reverse lever is not set in the middle



1 Answer

Sounds like the spool case is jammed up
take the spool case out

check the drive belt is ok

in some you just need to remove the case
and tighten a screw on the drive sproket inside
you can find the plastic spleen holder on the drive wheel has stripped
or cracked so the motor will run and nothing moves

your post is too sparce on info
like does the motor run at all?????

usual problem is the motor runs no drive
because the drive belt is broken or a plastic is cracked

Testimonial: "Simeon I did lift the machine up and found out that the wheel on the motor does spin. Bit the wheel on the machine meaning the hand wheel is still lock up. The belt looks good and there is very little oil I it cause this sewing machine came from 3000 miles away."

My daughter's brand new, right out of the box Janome 2212 machine is not working. The foot pedal is not engaging the motor so the needle doesn't move up and down. The wheel is pushed in as it

Sorry, but gotta ask is it plugged in and turned on? Check before you answer. (I ask this because it happened to me, set up, ready to go, and no power. After an hour and the machine was in pieces, My son asked if i plugged it in and I snapped "YES, DUH" not seeing him twirling he plug in his hand...he informed me that you must be 10% smarter than anything you operate or which point he was happy to inform me, the machine was 11% smarter. If it is plugged in and turned on, is the plug to the foot pedal plugged all the way in? Is the machine on? If you get zero reaction, no movement or sound of any kind, the foot pedal my be faulty, it can happen. Take it back to the dealer and they should replace the entire machine or the foot pedal. Good luck and happy sewing.

I have a babylock 1556 and when I press the foot petal the belt turns, but it won't move the needle up and down. I took off the back so I could watch and see what was going on. I can see the belt...

On the side of the 'knob', look for another wheel that tightens against that, so it engages, that's what it sounds like. When that second wheel is loose, it won't run, it just spins. From the photo I can find of the unit, it looks like that second wheel is below it, but I can't be certain. Let me know how you make out. Please rate and comment, thank you,

Husqvarna Emerald 203 sewing machine. LCD panel and light are on, 120volts to machine, petal was checked with multimeter and is ok. Front panel will not respond to any button being pushed nor will motor...

Not a solution, sorry but needing one too.
I've had this same problem, twice. The first time, a fuse was replaced and since it's under warranty, dealer paid for it.
Tomorrow I'll be picking it up for the second time, and this time I had to shell out $89!!
Does anyone know where that fuse is? Don't want to go spending more hard earned $$

Whenever I press the petal, I can hear the machine but the needle doesn't go up and down. I try to turn the hand wheel, but it won't turn counterclockwise. I have no idea what to do!

Hi - The bobbin holder (on top) has two positions. Back (toward the wheel) and forward (toward the head). Try moving the bobbin holder forward. Moving it forward will cause the motor to engage. Good Luck.

Bernina 1630 needle will not move go side to side.

If you can pull the needle bar down manually and it springs back up, the basting clutch is stuck. By someone who knows how, it's a very easy fix. I would guide you here, but I don't know how to explain it. Plus, you have to be very careful not to damage the spring loaded clutch.

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.

Generally going to have to be addressing the drive motor, either substituting a lower speed clutch motor for the existing one, ie if you have 3000 rpm motor, then going to a 1725 rpm motor. Alternatively, selling the clutch motor and buying a servo motor instead, which should be available with a variable maximum speed control. The Sewquiet 4000 can select different speed ranges with the flick of a switch. If you already have a servo motor and it does not have a variable max speed, then switching the drive pulley on the servo motor to a smaller size should help
A more convoluted solution would be building a support under the table for a layshaft with different pulley sizes so that the motor could drive one pulley and then a smaller pulley on the shaft would drive the sewing machine. Not a bolt on solution but pretty cheap to do if you are good at fabricating.
