SOURCE: Stop Motion Knob

Dear Jim,
I'm sure you have a pair of Channel lock pliers around.Place a fairly thick piece of fabric around the inner knob to keep from scratching it. Grasp it with the pliers while holding the handwheel and turn it to the left. IF you can't hold the wheel to keep it from slipping, place a screwdriver or something else under the needle set screw area, turn the wheel until the set screw is resting against the set screw and then turn the inner knob with the pliers.

SOURCE: Hand wheel won't turn

The belts needed for this machine are very specific in size, particularly the small one. The wrong belts will not work.

Look carefully at the bracket that holds the pulley. There are two screws that hold it in place. Loosen them slightly and run the machine and the pulley bracket may move on its own to where it needs to be. If not, you must find the right spot where it is tight enough not to slip and not too tight to bind.

Take out the bobbin and bobbin case and check round the raceway, chances are you have a small piece of thread stuck

SOURCE: took stop motion knob off how do the pieces go

You should have a three pronged washer, put that on first anyway round, then put the stop motion wheel on and tighten fineger tight, tighten the small screw that should be on the stop motion wheel and tighten a bit more, if it does not tighten up take the stop motion wheel off and put the three pronged washer in a different position.

Singer 974 MY NEEDLE WOULDN'T MOVE WHEN I TURN THE HAND WHEEL AND MY HAND WHEEL WOOBLES. HOW CAN I FIX IT?


slacken the small stop screw and remove the centre free motion knob. the balance wheel should now be free to turn independent of the shaft. you will have exposed the friction washer. clean all surfaces and relocate the washer with the two locating lugs facing outwards into the two slots in the shaft and refit the knob and screw. if the screw bottoms on the friction washer remove knob and turn the friction through 180 degrees and try it again

Clutch stuck


Could be the release knob has simply been wound on too tightly. Normally the missing screw is there to prevent the knob being wound out too far and nothing to do with free motion of the balance wheel

The hand wheel knob does not lock


You need to take out the screw in the balance wheel, unscrew the stop motion all the way off, take the 3 prong washer off and put it on a different way, put the stop motion back finget tight and put the screw back in and test, if that does not work change the washer round again

There should be a washer that fits over the balance wheel, if you dont put that back on the machine wont work.
Check around and see if it fell off when you removed the knob, or check to see if it is stuck inside the knob.

The washer is about 1" in diameter with a couple little tabs on it.
It will only work when installed correctly so if at first you fail just turn the ****** over!

Hand wheel loose


In the middle of the stop motion screw wheel there is a screw, undo the screw and unscrew the stop motion wheel all the way off, you will now see a three pronged washer, take it off and put it in a different position, put the stop motion wheel back on and just tighten finger tight, tighten the small screw all the way, now loosen the stop motion wheel and press on the foot control gently, the balance wheel should move with moving the machine, if the machine turns then start over again, you can put the three pronged washer upside down if you wish.

Handwheel on Sewing machine no longer moves needle.


Actually you should have a "set screw" in the hand wheel. The set screw is usally locked down tight to keep the hand wheel from spinning freely. I f you can run the machine slowly and hold the hand wheel in one place but the machine continues running, then you do need to replace the "set screw". If you replace it you will find that you can offset some of the machines vibration by where you lock the wheel down. Trial and error is the only way to achive this adjustment, kind of like balancing the tires on your car.

I have only a cheap one (VX-1100), but when this is happening on mine, the stop-motion knob isn't fully engaged with the balance wheel. They are held together by one being tightened to the other for sewing, loosened for bobbin winding. Michael
