Have you cleaned out under the plate? That can stop a machine.

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.

Hand wheel & needle very stiff


Hai, I think your machine timing is changed. So you can't sewing properly. Please check the timing and put the oil everyday all oil parts properly.

My hand wheel turns and my needle stops even thou I have it turned so that it should sew. I will be sewing along and all of a sudden the hand wheel starts turning.


If this is an older machine that the motor drives the hand wheel with a belt, then look at what holds the wheel to the interior shaft (a bolt, screw, or friction knob that releases the interior shaft to allow winding a bobbin). Hope this helps!

Skipping stitches and sometime the thread breaks.


Sounds like a tension problem maybe. Too tight tension will bend, and break the needle, especially if sewing fast in free machine embroidery, in this mode, the tensions have to be looser anyway. I can't explain why the wheel flagged and stopped, but experiment with tensions first.

Hand wheel loose


In the middle of the stop motion screw wheel there is a screw, undo the screw and unscrew the stop motion wheel all the way off, you will now see a three pronged washer, take it off and put it in a different position, put the stop motion wheel back on and just tighten finger tight, tighten the small screw all the way, now loosen the stop motion wheel and press on the foot control gently, the balance wheel should move with moving the machine, if the machine turns then start over again, you can put the three pronged washer upside down if you wish.

Hand wheel spins without moving the needle


I used to have an old Bernina that had an inner and outer hand wheel. Loosening the inner wheel disconnected the needle bar from the motor so you could wind the bobbin without running the needle up and down. It sounds to me like your machine has the same feature, but resistance on the needle makes the inner wheel loosen up. I don't know whether wrenching on it as tight as you can would be enough, or whether this is a symptom indicating that there is something loose internally in the connection between the inner and outer wheels. Good luck!

Wheel won't turn


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
