The belts need to be reasonably tight but not like piano strings. Also if there is oil or similar on the belts this will stop the machine from turning over me friend.
Also, if the machine turns over by hand without any tight spots and will sew then your belts are either the wrong ones or need to be adjusted.
I hope this helps you,
Cookey.

Have you pulled apart the bobbin race area and checked for any bits of broken needle?

Is the clutch disengaged on the flywheel?

Otherwise, was the loud cracking noice coming from inside the machine case in which case it could be a gear internally that went and the needle breaking was just the result of this, in which case, time for a road trip to the service tech.

My sewing machine makes whirring noises but will not sew anything (the needle will not move)


Not sure about this model but most have a belt inside the machine to connect the motor to the rest of the machine. Some have an access plate you can remove. New belts are available many places and are usually easily replaced. Good luck

Belts intact, press on pedal, motion in belts, but not on needle end


does the needle go up and down when you turn the handwheel by hand? if so, one of the belts may be slipping - tighten it enough to make it grab.

if the handwheel does not make the needle go up and down, is the handwheel lock for bobbin winding un-locked? if so tighten the handwheel lock inside the handwheel. if the handwheel lock is tightened and the handwheel spins when motor runs the handwheel lock is asembled incorrectly. if this is the case, undo screw in handwhhel lock nut and spin lock nut off machine, then remove pronged washer and turn 1/3 turn and re-install.

Machine No. K1831(256) No.28 how do you set up the stop motion wheel to wind bobbins. It either winds bobbins whilst sewing or just free wheels. I think there must be a way of adjusting this action....
