Question about Singer Deluxe 57825 Mechanical Sewing Machine
SOURCE: Handwheel doesn't move needle
Sounds like the connection between the handwheel and the needle as disconnected (needle bar). It appears from the picture that this is a version of a mass-market product geared for kids/very light duty sewing.
If so, you may be able to reconnect this by removing the side-cover or top-cover of the machine (if removable). The problem is going to be re-timing the needle with the hook/bobbin assembly.
If you are unable to reconnect or get the timing correct, a good local machine dealer/repair tech should be able to take care of it for you. Unfortunately, the cost of having a technician fix may be way more than you want to pay or the machine is worth.
Best of luck with your repair,

If you or somebody else had used the bobbin retreading function and forgot to disengage the bobbin retreader, the handle will not moved.
This is a simple solution, just disengage the bobbin retreader and it will be OK.
Otherwise it could be a jammed bobbin or any other mechanical part or simple no current is passing thorough the machine.

The error message relates to the motor sensing that it is working unusually hard.........the extra strain will have a physical cause, generally in the hook and bobbin region.......something blocking or slowing things down, so.......
Remove needleplate and bobbin case.
You will probably find an accumulation of lint in and around this area, also possibly in the feeddog channels.
Use a small brush and vacuum with crevice tool to remove the lint and wipe the hookrace with a tissue moistened with methylated (denatured) spirit to remove any dirt deposits.
Also check that the bobbin case is not damaged on the top surface by needle strikes or on the underside rim by the hook gouging as it spins.
If damage is present but mild, you can use very fine emery paper to smooth surface, if more severe, replace the bobbin case. Don't forget to change needles regularly too.

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.

If the stop motion wheel is stuck and you can't free it the best way to do it is to stand at the end of the machine, get something that looks like a chisel or something that has a flat end even a screwdriver, put the end of the screwdriver in a slot on the left hand side of the stop motion and give it a sharp thump down, it worked for me for years, the only problem you may have is if you do not have any slots or grooves to put the screwdriver in.
