    Hello,

    The same thing happend to me with an older model (Singer
    XL 10). I have been sewing a decorating stitch and the machine stopped
    suddenly. Now I am not able to turn the hand wheel anymore like I
    should (I can move it a little bit, but the needle does not move up and
    down and the wheel is getting stuck). When I try to use the pedal the
    motor makes a horrible noise and stops. The needle is not moving up and
    down.

    Is there a solution for that problem? I moved from Europe
    to Australia and have not used my machine since. Today is the first
    day, I was cleaning and oiling it and it first sewed perfectly. In case
    that there would be thread stuck somewhere, how could I possibly clean
    that? I already took off the plastic from the head, but I can not see
    where the problem is.

    Any help is appreciated. Thank you!

    Best regards,
    Nelly

    PS. Sorry that I posted my first question as a solution. I thought it would appear as a comment.

How to deactivate the safety device on the Singer Futura SES 1000 embroidery machine? How can I get the hand wheel to turn again to get the machine to sew/embroider?


You can't--something is stopping the wheel from turning, and until you find out what is stopping it, your machine will be locked up. Take a look below the bobbin case, and you'll see a ***** holding a little door. It allows you to clean and see on the other side of the bobbin basket. Chances are, there's something like a broken off needle stopping the gear that turns the hook. It can also be caused by threads wrapped around the tension disks, or around the inside of the hand wheel itself. The hand wheel can be removed by removing the cap in the center--it is hiding a ***** that holds the wheel.

Janome 350 embroidery machine......when I try to rewind the thread, ( shifting the stick to the right ) the needle keeps moving up and down.....any kind of help would be very appreciated.....the deale


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.

Singer stylist 534 sometimes when you stop won't start without turning balance wheel


Yes this is normal especialy with heavier fabrics. It allows more control so you build up speed gently. It is also related the limited power of the motor.

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

Sewing machine wheel won't turn, motor whirrs


So it sounds like the motor is working but nothing happens? And the hand wheel works ok by hand but nothing when the motor is engaged.

You've broken a belt. I'm not familiar with the 930, but if it has an internal motor... take it in to have it done. It's way too easy to knock these out of time. Spend the extra cash and have it cleaned lubed and adjusted too.

Brother Sewing Embroidery Machine


I agree with sylviaivie about find another repairman, they are suppose
to guarantee the work they do.
when the upper shaft is replaced & then the machine is retimed
the machine should work just fine.
but just don't take it back to that man to be repaired
here is a tip if it happens again,,
always try to cut the top thread first,
& turn the machine up on it's back to access the bottom cover
take the cover off the bottom to get access to the bobbin thread
where you can cut the bobbin thread
then you should be able to get the needle out without breaking it &
damaging the upper shaft, replace the needle & make sure
that the thread is good quality & not knotty, clean out the bobbin area of lint or thread
always change the needle on the embroidery machine every project
make sure the bobbin area is kept clean of lint or thread
clean under the needle plate at least once a week for lint if you
embroidery everyday or just often

I just purchased the sew pro portable zig zag sewing machine model zz 401 and it won?t work, the pedal makes this funny sound and the machine isn?t working. What do i do? I tried everything and tried...


Maybe the drive wheel is disengaged. Some machines have you pull out the wheel on the right to wind a bobbin and yours might be pulled out. Try pushing the wheel back in to engage the machine.

Inapproipiate needle stop position THEN Main Motor Lock comes on


The BELT was OFF. I guess it did that during shipment to me. So my husband just put it back on. THAT SIMPLE. It just kept making a motor trying to run sound and my husband took the left top cover off and seen it was only the belt. I was SO excited. It saved me a service call.
