Re: moving needle trouble

First switch off your machine and lower the needle. Try to pull your needle bar to the right and to the left. There should be a little bit of resistance but you should be able to do it. If it is tight your machine needs a service and from a qualified tecnician.

If you are able to pull it, then switch your machine on, and check if the machine initialize and the needle move to the left and stops in the centre. If not your step motor is faulty.

Hope this help

Try to find the exact spot on the wheel to make the needle stop. Try different spots to get the one that does not move. You may need a service. You could also remove the thread until you are ready. The needle would go up and down but without thread will not cause havoc.

Machines needle moves up and down very stiffly. how do i lubricate the mechanism without hurting the machine?

unplug your machine remove the end cap (there should only be one screw in the back of the machine take it out.) to find the needle bar you can find it by moving the hand wheel toward you just place a drop of oil on the needle bar and your done. if you arent having any trouble with it I wouldn't worry about it oiling it

Machine jammed

Remove the needle plate, you should be able to spot the broken end of needle by pulling on threads jammed underneath. If you have to use something to pick it out, be gentle. You do not want to damage the mechanism. You could always try a magnet.

If you can't figure it out, take it back to retailer. As a courtesy, they are usually pretty good at helping new owners out of a "jam".
