Kenmore sewing machine my sewing machine won't sew, it just makes a noise

If it's an older mechanical machine, it most likely has seized due to lack of recent, thorough oiling. Refrain from forcing the machine to run as it could damage the motor.

Wheel on right side that controls the needle up and down is very tight...

It might just need a very good cleaning on the inside- you said it is an old machine - is the motor located on the outside of the machine? I. Some of the older machines a lubricant is used
and it comes in a tube - check the manual on this Find a
good generic repair man - good luck

Brother sewing machine noise

Sound like the whole unit needs a good cleaning.
My rule is "if it moves give it a lube", be careful not to get oil on electric boards or in the motor. What is the make and model of your machine. I will try to help you more.

The hand wheel will not move when I tighten the smaller wheel - I oiled everything and still nothing!

when a sewing machine start making noises, it's time to have the
machine checked, just like you would a car.

Where to oil a Kenmore 158-17600

Remove the top and bottom covers. Turn the wheel and put a drop of oil anyplace that moves and rubs.Also at the ends of each shaft. Open the side cover and oil the needle bar and all the parts inside that move and rub.Put a drop of oil on the hook.Do not put a good piece of fabric in the machine right after you've oiled it. Sew it off on some scraps that you can throw away.

Singer sewiing machine clicking

Remove the needle , tighten the needle set screw so the clamp doesn't rattle and run the machine.This will give you a better idea of where the noise originates.
Remove the top cover and put a drop of sewing machine oil(not 3 in 1 oil) on anyplace that moves and rubs. Run the machine again and see if you still have the noise. Replace the top cover.
Open the side cover(left side) put a drop of oil on any thing that moves or rubs(Shafts or joints). Run the machine again.
Remove the bottom cover and repeat the above processes.
If you still have the problem and it is bothering either you or the machine then it needs to be seen by a technician.
