If the motor is running and neither the needle or the hook are moving, then your motor belt has come off(the motor will sound like it is racing). If the needle is moving, but the hook is not, you may have a broken gear, or timing belt.

The motor runs but the needle won't go up and down. When I turn the wheel it will turn and that moves the needle up and down but makes a clicking sound. I've taken it apart and cleaned it even oiled it and...


Hi,
It sounds like the bobbin winder is engaged. On the top of the machine on the right hand side is a spindle that you can put your bobbin on to wind it. Make sure this spindle is pushed to the left when you want to sew and pushed to the right when you want to wind a bobbin.
