Question about Sewing Machines
The machine is stuck. The motor is working cause I can do bobbin winding. I replaced shuttle hook , thread, bobbin case, and needle but still not working. I tried to rotate hand wheel but it is stuck rotates about 15 degree angle only.
is ther any lock or something/
Was all well and working before you did work on the bobbin area ?
Ensure the machine is unplugged & bobbin winder is set OFF as there is a clutch preventing the needle arm to operate when bobbin winding......remove the needle.
If you take the bobbin and hook out, can you manually rotate the handwheel forwards ?
If yes, this suggests they are not inserted quite right, or the timing is out of adjustment.
Can you rotate the handwheel backwards ? On some machines the clutch allows for reverse travel freely, but only around the 15 degrees you mention forward when the top cover is off.....there may be a broken or dislodged spring unit/armature inside top near the handwheel and bobbin winder assembly that is acting as though the top cover is open (a safety feature)....generally towards the rear of machine and acting like a log thrown into a gear.
This may help straight away, or only just start to unravell the cause....

I have a Kenmore Sewing Machine 12912 and it is jammed as well. I cannot turn the knob at all and have taken the bobbin out, oiled the machine and nothing helps. Did you get your machine to finally work? I borrowed this one and need to return it.
