Tight handwheel on Janome Vogue Stitch


have you reset the free motion screw in the hand wheel?

Mar 17, 2014 | Janome Sewing Machines

1 Answer

The handwheel on my singer 3130 sewing machine won't disengage when winding the bobbin. The needle goes up and down.


The reason is the shaft at the balance wheel end is dry of oil and the only way to oil it is to take the balance wheel off or at least pull it out enough to spray some oil onto the shaft, I would suggest undoing the small screw on the stop motion wheel, unscrew the stop motion, you will see a three pronged washer, remember which way it goes on, take it of, tilt the machine on it's end and pray a few drops of wd40 on the end of the shaft and let it work it's way down for a minute

Winding bobbin


The metal bobbin wind stopper beside the wind pin needs to be adjusted to allow the bobbin to fill completely. Be careful if you try to do this yourself as there is a nut inside the machine backing the screw. If you loosed the screw to far, the nut will fall into the machine and you will need to take it in for service:(

HOW TO I WIND BOBBIN ON SINGER 347


If you mean the Singer Style Mate 347, open the face plate and remove the old bobbin. Then, the first step is to hold the hand wheel and loosen the stop-motion screw inside the hand wheel. (Keep the hand wheel from turning with one hand and turn the stop-motion screw towards the front of the machine.) Place your empty bobbin (hole away from the machine) on the spindle near the bobbin winder switch. Feed the thread from the spool on the spool pin through the eyelet on the top of the machine (near the top thread take up) and then down to and around the bobbin tension disc below the on-off power switch. Pass the thread through from the inside of the bobbin to the outside of the bobbin. Move the bobbin winder switch to On and hold onto the end of the thread. Start the machine and let a few winds get placed on the bobbin then stop for a minute. Cut the thread near the bobbin. Restart and continue winding more thread onto the bobbin until you have enough thread or the bobbin is full (it will stop automatically). Move the bobbin winder switch to off and tighten the stop-motion screw.

For pictures, see pages 6-7 in the manual. It's available as a PDF here: http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/9b8c1ca7584c2bea7837ca4bf5338af7f1b5380e.pdf . (These are pages 8-9 of the PDF.)

I hope this helps.

I have an Elnita 250 there is a problem with the wheel, when turning it it does not operate the needle up and down?


Make sure the stop motion wheel is tight, if it will not tighten you will need to undo the stop motion wheel, undo the screw that is in the stop motion wheel, unscrew the stop motion wheel all the way off and you will see a three pronged washer, take the washer off and put it in a different position, put the stop motion wheel back on and tighten to finger tight, screw the screw back up in the stop motion wheel, a final turn one the the stop motion wheel to tighten then test, if it does not work put the three pronged washer in a different position even upside dowm.

On my wife's sewing machine, she disengaged the gear on the hand wheel to rewind a bobbin. No she can not re-engage it, and it keeps slipping. Any ideas? Thanks, Darren


Hello Darren,
Undo the stop motion, unscrew the screw all the way and then undo the stop motion all the way until it is off, turn the three pronged washer in a different position, put everything back and tighten the stop motion wheel finger tight only, tighten the screw and then tight the stop motion further, if it does not grip start again and put the three pronged washer in a different position, you can turn it upside down.

Singer 328k bobbin winder replacement


Follow these instructions, undo the 2 screws on the right hand side plate where the balance wheel is and take the plate off, undo the screw on the chrome stop motion wheel, undo the stop motion and take it off, take off the 2 pronged washer and notice which way it goes on, not a problem if you can't remember, you should be able to pull the balance wheel back so you can get to the screws on the winder, if you can.t and if you have a problem getting the balance wheel all the way then go the very bottom of the machine and you will see 2 big holes and one of the holes will lead you to a big screw and nylon adjuster, slacken the screw and move the nylon adjust so the belt goes slack, you can not take the balance wheel all the way off to get to the screws on the winder, take the old one off and screw the new one on, whilst you have the balance wheel off it would be wise to put some thin oil on the shaft before you put the balance wheel back on, when you have the balance wheel on and the and the belt round the pulley turn the nylon adjuster so the belt is tight and tighten up the screw, put the side plate back on, put the 3 pronged washer back on, put the stop motion wheel back on and just tighten finger tight then tighten the small screw.

Bobbin stops before it is full. Is there and


There ought to be a stopper arm that touches the thread and stops the winding.....a small screw nearby ought to be the way to adjust the depth of the arm....use an empty bobbin...loosen the screw, move the arm toward the edge of the bobbin, then re-tighten.
DO NOT UNDO completely or bits may fall into the machine

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.

Stop motion knob won't tighten


Remove the stop motion wheel and you will see another part that is loose(looks kind of like a washer with ears on it). Reposition this on the shaft and put the stop motion wheel back on. The stop motion wheel was too loose and it allowed the washer to fall off the shaft. The screw is nice to have and it keeps the washer from falling off the shaft but it's not absolutely necessary to use the machine. Just be caredul when winding the bobbin.
