The foot pedal is not moving the machine but still makes a noise


A: You said, "The your foot pedal is not moving the machine, but still makes a noise". . . . I'd suggest checking if the sewing machine has a disengaged or broken drive belt, gear or linkage; if not the problem, may just be that the Hand-Wheel clutch mechanism (on the left center of the Hand Wheel) is in the Bobbin-Winding position. If so, it allows the machine to cycle, operating the Bobbin-Winder without the needle moving up or down. Older Brother machines, like many other brands, used a large flat shiny Screw Knob in the center of the Hand Wheel to engage or disengage the Bobbin-Winding feature, newer models use a plastic teeter-totter switch located in the same place, to do the same thing. Keep tinkering, you'll will resolve it.

The handwheel will turn manually but it will not move using the foot pedal. The sound it makes when I press on the foot pedal *sounds* like I am filling the bobbin.

I have a Janome 7933. The hand wheel turns but the needles don't. Looked in the manual but nothing about changing a belt or anything pertaining to this problem. How can I fix it?


Is the hand wheel properly engaged ? A hand wheel often is used when you wind bobbin. When you wind a bobbin, you want to disengage the clutch to prevent the needle going up/down.

On a lot of machines, either the entire hand wheel will pull out, or a smaller middle dial will pull out. You pull it out to wind the bobbin, push it back in to reengage the clutch so the needle goes up/down again.

So giving it a good push IN might solve this.

The needle does not move when the foot pedal is used.


Make sure that you pushed the bobbin winder all the way to the left.

My Model # 1120 Singer sewing machine needle will not go up and down when motor is pressed. The bobbin winder, however, spins.


It sounds like your machine is set to wind the bobbin right now, so the drive is disengaged. That would explain why the bobbin winder pin is the only part moving. Check your manual for how to reset the machine when you are finished winding the bobbin.

Most machines have a way to disengage the drive for the needle while filling the bobbin. Then once the bobbin is filled, you re-engage the drive. Some machines have a separate, smaller hand-wheel that turns and clicks into place. Some machines automatically reengage the drive once the bobbin pin snaps into place away from the drive belt.

I hope this helps!

Kenmore sewing machine Model 1602: I was filling a bobbin and when I went back to sewing - the needle won't go up and down. Motor runs when I press on the footpad. It is as if the clutch is stuck as well...


Sound like you need to take it out of bobbin winder mode. Suggest looking for a way to engage the clutch. Turn the center knob on hand wheel and or move the bobbin winding post back to postion.

The center hand wheel should move about 1/3 turn towards you to look it back into place.

The needle is stuck,not moving.its very hard and the motor makes a sound but needle does not move.


Refer to your manual and make sure the bobbin winding feature is disengaged.

Turn off the power and remove the needle and if there is fabric, remove it also.

Open the needle plate look for thread tangles.

After cleaning, turn the hand-wheel by hand to see if it moves the needle up and down.

If it does, press on the foot pedal to see if it is working.

Any of the above could be the problem.

When i press the pedal, the needle wont move and i already oiled the machine


press the hand wheel in. On this machine you pull the hand wheel out to disengage the needle while threading the bobbin and press it back in to reengage the needle.
