Question about Sewing Machines

The stop motionknob will work the kneeddle manually but the motor runs without affecting the keneddle. How can I get the motor to work the kneedle as it should?

The motor seems to run OK for a machine that sat for several years, but won't move the kneedle. It can be moved by hand however.

If it is an older mechanical machine, it probably needs cleaning and oiling since it has been setting for some time without any maintenance. Or, as Ray said, the belt may not be working properly.

I would like a wiring schematic for the speed control transformer and light on a old Necchi Mira sewing machine, please.


the light wires are not to be connected to the speed control but have a separate circuit to the on / off switch
if you have the light connected to the speed control then as the resistance to the motor is decreased it affects the power available to the light

The needle is not going up and down, the fabric is not feeding thru. The foot pedal is not working at all. How do I fix this?


Is it plugged in? (The foot pedal) Your machine may have power but in most setups the foot pedal is the master controller; since it controls motor speed everything mechanical is affected by whether it works or not.

Each machine is different. Most of the machines that are electronic have a sensor to shut it off if you place the bobbin on the winder and push the winder into its position to wind. Give it a try. Also, check your spindle at the end to pull it outwards or attempt to untighten like you do a jar. This is the old mechanical machine but it is possible this machine uses it. Next you must look on your monitor for a particular symbol that represents the bobbin. This would likely be a button to turn it off and on.

Motor runs unaided, have to turn off power to stop it


Is the foot pedal not returning to the off position? Try disconnecting the foot pedal. If the machine stops running, then your problem is in the foot pedal. If it keeps running, then your control board is bad.

FOR HOW LONG AT A TIME CAN I RUN MY EURO PRO FAST AND EASY 420 MACHINE WITHOUT IT OVERHEATING?


Domestic machines are not made to run at contsant high speed for long periods of time, the chances are the machine will give before the motor and then the strain of the mahine will burn the motor out, they are made purely for domestic use, stop and start, a lot of people use them for doing outdoor work much to their cost

SINGER IZEK MODEL 1500


The Izek has a motor over current protection circuit which measures the currend draw at the main motor. If the main motor is trying to run and it draws more current than it should the machine will stop sewing. In sew speak terms the machine is too stiff to turn easily. There are 2 different solutions. Completely lubricate the machine anywhere metal is on metal use oil (sewing machine) and metal on plastic or platic on plastic use white lithium grease. Try the machine now!
Next if that did not fix it make sure there is no lint, thread or the like wrapped around andy parts of the machine. Good luck
