Question about Sewing Machines
The sewing machine will come on but it will not make a mechanical connection to run the sewing machine? The wheel turns and the belts are okay. I take off the wheel end and the wheel is turning properly but what ever makes the connection mechanically is not happening? lost
It is a clutch issue.
If you can turn the handwheel manually and the motor belt is running OK but the needle will not move, you will need to check the clutch mechanism for the bobbin winder.
There are three ways for the clutch to engage, and as I do not know your machine, I offer all three for you to see which applies to yours.
Flick winder to the left to engage needle arm motion.......it may activate automatically when the winder is set to wind a new bobbin and de-activate the needle arm
there may be a small wheel inside the larger handwheel....tighten the inner wheel to engage needle arm...
the handwheel may have a push/pull action ....push in to activate the clutch, pull out for bobbin winding.
If there is any more you need to ask or update your info to refine the question, just post back here, or drop a line through the "Contact Us" page at www.bargainbox.com.au
