Do the following and you may have some progress:
1. Remove the bobbin and carrier. Try to turn. (Material stuck in the feed dog, bobbin, carrier or hook (pointed thing under the carrier) will cause the hand wheel to stick.This is the usual problem.
2. Remove the top and bottom and give it a good squirt of oil in areas that move. Wipe some off after you get it going.
3. At the end where the motor/hand wheel is remove the plate to see if the belt is broken or off of the pulley.
4. To get this going again you will have to do some forcing.

Hand wheel moving needle moving but will not sew cannot release hand wheel to turn in opposite direction


Do NOT turn the handwheel the reverse direction.

If your machine is mechanical, most likely it hasn't been cleaned and oiled for a long time. Old sewing machine dries out and turns to glue which then prevents parts from moving like they should.

How to Oil Vintage Sewing Machine

Tri-Flow Synthetic Lube is very good because it has little teflon beads. It also does not dry out like sewing machine oil will. Then applying heated air from a handheld hairdryer will help loosen it.

Do NOT oil plastic/nylon, cams, or belts.

Hand piece is very tight to turn and unable to use the machine


Make sure to clean/remove all the lint, thread, dust, etc. that may have built up in the bobbin area, around the feed dogs, and under the needle plate. Sometimes gunk build-up will prevent the hand wheel from turning. Remove the bobbin & bobbin case from the machine and the needle and see if the hand wheel will turn. If not, then it may be time for service.

How to deactivate the safety device on the Singer Futura SES 1000 embroidery machine? How can I get the hand wheel to turn again to get the machine to sew/embroider?


You can't--something is stopping the wheel from turning, and until you find out what is stopping it, your machine will be locked up. Take a look below the bobbin case, and you'll see a ***** holding a little door. It allows you to clean and see on the other side of the bobbin basket. Chances are, there's something like a broken off needle stopping the gear that turns the hook. It can also be caused by threads wrapped around the tension disks, or around the inside of the hand wheel itself. The hand wheel can be removed by removing the cap in the center--it is hiding a ***** that holds the wheel.

How do I add thread to the bobbin


The small box you will turn towards you while you hold the big handwheel. It might me very tight but it isn't going to break by turning hard. Tighten the small screw before you begin. When it is loose you can wind your bobbin.

Motor is fine, but won't sew


since the machine has been setting for 20 years, it needs to be serviced
the old grease & oil have probably turned the gunk. the servicing can also tell if any parts are damaged

My hand wheel turns and my needle stops even thou I have it turned so that it should sew. I will be sewing along and all of a sudden the hand wheel starts turning.


If this is an older machine that the motor drives the hand wheel with a belt, then look at what holds the wheel to the interior shaft (a bolt, screw, or friction knob that releases the interior shaft to allow winding a bobbin). Hope this helps!
