As for the machine not sewing, it could be one or more things. You may want to take it for service, especially if it hasn't been used in a while.

What year was the elgin 999F sewing machine made?

Short life of the sewing machine department. 1896 - 1899

Automobiles were once manufactured in Elgin in greater numbers than the city's residents were buying them. There were sixty local owners of "machines" in July 1905. By that time, about 120 vehicles had been turned out by the Elgin Sewing Machine and Bicycle Company (five electrics in 1898), the Elgin Automobile Company (fifteen Winners in 1899-1900), and the Fauber Manufacturing Company (perhaps a hundred Marr Autocars in 190304), all occupying in succession the former Dickie factory in Elgin Heights. This seemingly jinxed southeast end plant was destroyed by fire in August 1904, but its destruction didn't halt the city's output of cars. The Moody brothers built at least three in their machine shop on River Street in 1903-05, and H. F. VanWambeke and Sons constructed about eight "Van" delivery wagons in a barn behind their grocery store at Hill and Jefferson streets in 1907-09.

    Hand wheel rotates but stop motion screw doesn't rotate and it is not moving the needle up or down

    Robin. Take off the hand wheel. Look for the funny looking washer with ears. The center fingers should be angled outward when you fit it into place (counter intuitive, I know) Fit everything back together and try it again.

    Juki DDL-227 won't spin

    :) welcome to the world of industrial machines. The good news is they are typically simple machines.

    It is a good habit to take a few minutes to clean and oil your machine before you start sewing. Look for the oil points and give it one drop of quality sewing machine oil in each port.

    Now let's try to determine why the hand wheel isn't turning. Loosen and remove the belt from the large reducer wheel under the table to the sewing machine. Try to turn the hand wheel. If it does turn.... Good! If it doesn't turn... we know the problem is in the the machine head and not the wheels below.

    Make sure there is no bobbin thread or upper thread. Try to turn the hand wheel again. Anything?

    Look carefully at the machine... is the take up lever bent? (personally had this happen with friends helped me move a big machine like this.)

    Keep working this way... inspecting the machine until you find the problem. Good luck

    Hand wheel won't spin?

    Something is binding up inside. Clean and check under the presser foot and bobbin area. Really examine under there... look for threads wrapped around and in between moving parts. Also check in the slot for the take up lever... sometimes threads get balled up inside there can cause problems.

    could also be a bent upper arm inside the machine (lets hope not) Get professional help if cleaning doesn't free it up.

    I have a singer 603e that I just purchased from an estate sale. I got home and tried to use it, but the take up lever is stuck. How do I fix this?

    try some wd 40, spray it on the area of the take up lever & let it set for at least 10 minutes then with the hand wheel on the right hand side slowly move the hand wheel toward you & if it still doesn't move re spray again & wait again then try the hand wheel again to move toward you eventually it should start to break loose if it's just stuck.
    since you pruchased it at a estate sale, there not much telling when the machine was serviced last
    if the spraying doesn't work, consider having it serviced
