Question about Singer 8280 Mechanical Sewing Machine
The machine works to thread the bobbin but will not move when put back to regular sewing the knob on the side barley turns and there is no thread on it at all. If it does work it goes really slow. Even when the peddle is down to the floor. then it slows and stops.
I had the same problem where my machine stopped working right in the middle of a project. I called me dad and he walked me through the machine over the phone. It boiled down to the machine needing to be oiled. If you're brave enough you need to completely remove the plastic case and oil with sewing machine oil. Refer to manual for proper spots to oil or dish out the cash to have it professionally oiled. If you do it yourself turn the machine by hand (small twists back and forth) until the machine loosens up and definitely until it turning smoothly. Then put it back together and plug it in and give a try....should work. Hope this helps.

I just found out that if you still have the bobbin winder on, the machine won't turn at all. So make sure that you have the winder slid over.
