Probably something jammed in or near the bobbin case or hook area.

My sewing machine has stopped working, it was working ok , just a bit noisier than usual but now the needle wont move at all, even if i try to turn the wheel by hand


the machine may need oiling, check in your sewing machine manual to see about oiling it, it's also possible that the machine could have a damaged or broken part inside,,

The needle acts like it is hitting something but there are no threads.


Test: Put needle on straight stitch. Put needle all the way to the left and turn the hand wheel forward.
Now move the needle to the right and do this again.
Did the hand wheel move all the way for one of the two sides the needle was placed?
If your answer is yes then you need to get the machine timed.
Also, make sure that your brake used for winding the bobbins is tight. If it is tight then loosen the small screw (usually on front of hand wheel). Move the brake forward a little more to tighten and then tighten the small screw again. Look at my picture.

Hand wheel turns half way and won't go any further,nothing appears to be hitting anything


Did you do a thorough oiing "inside" the machine--like take the bottom or back off, hand rotate the handwheel and apply a drop of "fresh, good quality serger oil" every place where metal rubs against metal?

Why is my singer SEWING MACHINE prelude HAND WHEEL RESISTING


Make sure the bobbin winder is in the position away from the bobbin stopper. When you fill a bobbin, you have to push the "spindle" towards the handwheel. If you do not push the "spindle" back into position (away from the handwheel), the wheel will remain locked.

My machine started making noise and the handwheel became hard to turn. The hand wheel stopped turing completely. can I fix this myself or does it have to be repaired professionally?


Take the bobbin case out completely to begin witgh and check for any jammed thread, see if you can turn the balance wheel once the bobbin case is out, if you have a front load bobbin take the raceway out as well, if it still does not move you have a problem which will need shop attention

E1 error keeps coming up everytime I press the foot controller or start/stop button. Before this happened, the bobbin thread wasn't working. Only bunching lots of threads from top underneath cloth.


E1 means that the main motor is working to hard so the machine is keeping you from burning it up, make sure the handwheel feels smooth when turning if it doesnt clean your hook area and take the side cover off and make sure no thread is caught in the take-up lever

Hand wheel is stuck


hi there,
well,stuck up hand wheel, is due to mechanical obstruction inside machine,bushing on shafting need to oil,and on handwheel bushing near clutch there is oil port there. since hand wheel are connected to cam shaft with set of gears and pulley is coupled to motor pulley,and other linkage under bobbins,shuttle race etc,broken gears are most common causes of stuck up handwheel,we can consider also the brush carbon,when worn out and damage the rotor commutator brush.if you can open the cover of motor below side of handwheel,you can see the pulley and motor assembly.also on top of machine there an opening to see the top gear assembly,this should be done by service technician.try to bring to nearest service center if still under warranty claim this for lesser maintenance cost.have a nice day,don't forget to rate me.thank's.

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.
