Remove the bobbin and try it again, to see if the needle is hitting the bobbin, or something else is stopping it.
Hope this helps.

Lervia sewng machine. material wont feed through. Dogs are up but material just wont move through. needle moving freely.


Hm, could be several things. If stitches are not being formed, it could be a timing issue (the needle does not arrive at the bobbin at the correct time). Did the machine recently hit a pin or something hard? That will knock a machine out of time. There could also be a broken piece stuck that is preventing the feed dogs from operating. Thoroughly clean the machine around the bobbin area and feed dogs.

Needle shaft stuck. Machine won't work.


It's possible that you have threads wound somewhere inside the machine. Likely places are the tension unit and near the hand wheel.

My brother GS2520 sewing machine stopped working it went stiff, I could manually turn it when bubbin windrr was on bit now everything has stopped


Sometimes, there is a ball of thread and cloth stuck between the hook and throat plate. Remove the throat plate (silver plate with a hole the needle goes through), usually there are 2 screws on either side of the plate that need to be removed. Lift out the plate and check for thread and cloth in the area where the needle goes in the hook. If that's not it, have you ever oiled your machine? If the answer is no, then you could get the manual out and oil in the places where they say to. After oiling, move the hand wheel back and forth several times to see if it breaks free.

Needles on Overlock 760DE not moving up or down


Unless you have thread caught in and around your loopers somewhere inside the machine... then I would suggest that overlocker goes to a service repair place.

Wheel goes halfway then gets stuck


If it's a mechanical machine, it could be seizing due to old, dried out oil. How long since it has had a thorough clean and oil? If this is the cause, AVOID running the machine until the problem is addressed or the motor can be damaged.

The needle gets stuck and I have a hard time removing the fabric. How do I oil the machine?


As far as oiling goers you should oil all the moving parts that you can see, if the needle gets stuck run the machine without fabric and thread and see what happens, if the needle get stuct you may need to retime it, if it only gets stuck when you are sewing make sure you are not pulling the fabric to the back instead of letting the machine do the work.

Needle Keeps Moving While Sewing and Bobbin Wont Thread


Hi Nikki,

The problem seems to be of the needles alignment. If you are using a half bobbin type (D type) needle, makes sure you have used the proper number & size and also fastened it well so that the flat side is firmly fixed/clasping the inner side of the needle hold. That black thing which I feel is the fly-nut that helps you tighten/clamp the needle to its hold. Then after having done that, slowly turn the wheel manually to see whether the needle is going in thru the hole in a straight line and if you can, look underneath to se if the knotter ring (the one that looks like having fangs) comes close as the neele advances inward. All these movements HAVE TO BE syncronised. Only then you will be able to stitch the fines of fabrics speedily. Also make sure oyu are not tugging on the front end of the fabric too hard as this may cause the needle to go in a diagonal manner thus causing it to snap. Take care as to NOT to be too close to the needle while at high speeds. The snapping pieces can fly right into your eyes/nose causing serious injury.

Hope that does it Nikki...
