My machine is broken!

When I try and use my machine, I can hear it try to go but the needle goes no where. I try and turn the balance wheel and it won't budge. I press on the foot pedal and nothing happens. How do I fix this?

The moter might have went out on you, you need to oil them often. it could have somthing stuck in it. you should take it to a dealer or get a new one. ebay is a good place to look.

I need a schematic of the interior of my machine so I can repair it. Motor turns on, fly wheel and bobbin mechanism works but needle and bobbin area don't.

Service manuals for sewing machines are available. Do an internet search. If the needle goes up and down when you manually turn the hand wheel you may simply have a belt problem (broken or off the pulley). If the needle doesn't move when the hand wheel turns, there's a major problem in the mechanism.

1st time feed dogs to raise and lower in time with the needle bar going up and down. Fit needle and slowly turn balance wheel towards you until needle is at lowest point, note where hook point is. Turn balance wheel towards you very slowly and stop when needle has risen about 3/16" from it lowest point. The hook should be immediately behind the needle and slightly above the eye.

Error code 6 (thread in motor but there is none)

If you can turn the balance wheel by hand and the needle goes up and down it may be loose belts, if you can't turn the balance wheel by hand then there is definitely thread stuck somewhere in the raceway

The hand wheel keeps falling off and now when i try the sew nothing happens, the needle does not move. all i hear is the sound ofthe motor but nothing happens

If the balance wheel is coming off which it should not do because it is held on by the belt then you have not tightened the stop motion in the middle of the balance wheel, make sure you have not lost the little screw in the middle if the balance wheel.

When I wind the bobber,, I losen the knob inside the hand wheel,, but my needle still goes runs,, what am I doing wrong??

You are not doing anything wrong , the shaft under the balance wheel has gone dry of oil, you need to try and oil under the balance wheel if you can, if you have a two piece body machine it will be very difficult

Did you find the broken bit of the needle ?
It may be jamming the bobbin case area and hook. Remove the needleplate and bobbin case and clean it all out then report back with progress.
