    Thanks so much you are a genius... I followed your direction and discovered a piece of thread and once removed the balance wheel does turn and the machince is now operational.

    With Best wishes

    Can you move the needle bar (where the needle goes) up and down manually? Or does it seem to be stuck? What happens when you turn the balance wheel?

Okay, so there is a jam. Take out the bobbin case and the hook. Remove the bobbin from the bobbin case if you haven't already.

Try and turn balance wheel now. if it is still stuck than you have a pretty big problem. Chances are the timing has been thrown so far that something is bumping something else and keeping it from revolving. Repair probably required.

If you're really lucky and the balance wheel does turn do this:
Clean bobbin case and hook gently with a tooth bush or some such. Make sure the bobbin doesn't have a bit of needle jammed in it. Examine the bobbin case and hook, looking for any damage. There has to be something preventing the normal revolutions of the machine from happening.
Good Luck and if this was helpful please vote for me. Thanks

The needle keeps breaking and the thread wont stay threaded. the needle is not going straight up and down but it goes down and gets stuck almost


usually a 3-5 inch thread tail is helpful to keep the thread from coming out of the needle & pull the thread(top & bottom) behind the needle
flat side of needle goes to the back of machine
some needles & thread are not compatable----try this

Cut 6-8 inch piece of thread of the spool you are going to use for your project
Take the needle you are going to use for the project
& insert the thread thru the eye of the needle
& lift one end of the thread to a 45 degree angle
& if the needle is the right size for the thread it will slide down the thread
But if the needle hangs on the thread you need one size larger needle for the thread

on some machines the presser foot can't do a zig zag stitch

When drawing thread up from the shuttle needle wont go down


Sounds like your hook to needle timing is off. When you sew through thick materials, a lot of machines have issues where the needle sticks in the fabric but all the internal parts shift and this causes the hook to needle timing to go out. The begging signs of this is skipping stitches. You will have to have you local independent sewing store do this adjustment for you

Hope that helps :)
