Remove the bobbin, bobbin case as well as the shuttle hook. There are black pins/holders that hold the shuttle hook. After you remove these 3 components, make sure there are no thread stuck in between the 2 hook pieces as well as the bobbin shaft. Most of them time, there are either fabric or thread stuck. If not, make sure the needle is not hitting the feed dog or the hook.

Sound like there is a thread jam somewhere. Check the bobbincase and hook assembly.

If the swinging sound is from the motor, right side just below your hand wheel, possibility your motor belting is loose or broken. If you don't have mechanical skill / experience, suggest to get your local technician to fix it.

Brother VX1435, needle won't move


some machines when the bobbin winder is engaged will not sew, do you
have to disengage the center wheel in the handwheel to wind a bobbin?
or do you have to just move the bobbin winder spindle to the right to
wind the bobbin?
do you have a manual for the machine?

Annoying solution, but works every time. Remove the ENTIRE bobbin casing from the base and then turn the wheel. The needle should lift right out. Reassemble bobbin casing and oil very well.

This generally only happens when you are sewing through several layers of fabric or though a thick fabric. If you are doing neither, the timing in your machine may be off and you will need to get it repaired.

Needle won't move on Bernina 930


If the machines motor is running but the needle isn't going up and down then the baste stitch finger is gummed up and needs to be serviced.  This is a simple fix and it happens all the time on those machines.  Take it to your local Bernina dealer for a standard service.  Also if you really need it in a pinch try pushing up on the needle bar that sometimes will fix the problem but it will still need serviced.
