Question about Sewing Machines
I was sewing when it seemed that suddenly the needle of my Singer Stylist (c. 1969) sewing machine was hitting metal and could not go all the way down. Upon removing the feed dog plate, I could see that the needle was in fact hitting a metal piece of the bobbin, which prevented it from going down. I turned the side knob back and forth a bit to watch the action, and nothing changed. Only when I pulled the knob toward me a few times, the bobbin entirely stopped moving and would not restart. The machine is making a different, strange sound now when I step on the presser foot, and the bobbin will not spin around at all. Perhaps a motor/gear issue? I'm pretty handy - is this something someone can walk me through how to fix myself?
You have a broken vertical shaft gear. It's very easy to replace if you are mechanically inclined. The gear can be purchased for between $8-14 from a sewing repair store and I can walk you through the process.
