This might sound too simple but it might need to be thoroughly oiled. I just got one of these machines from a friend -- it had the identical problem: I couldn't turn the handwheel. The motor was working but the machine would not function. I blasted it with WD40 and then thoroughly oiled it with sewing machine oil. Within a half hour it was stitching just fine. If you use WD40 to free it up, be sure to thoroughly oil it with sewing machine oil immediately after because otherwise the lacquer in the WD40 will eventually gum it up again. Hope this helps.

Singer 3232 machine was sewing fine now motor runs but needle does not move up and down


Check if the machine is in the bobbin winding mode. To wind the bobbin, the bobbin spindle has to be moved to the right. (The hand wheel will not turn if the bobbin spindle is in this position.) If it is, move the spindle to the left.

If the hand wheel turns, then check for a thread jam. Remove the top thread and take out the bobbin case. Gently turn the hand wheel forward and backwards until the thread comes free of the hook in the bobbin race. Follow this by cleaning any lint from the bobbin race of the sewing machine.

The last possibility is that the belt has failed. This belt transfers the energy from the motor to the needle bar. One source of the belt is http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/motor-belt-singer-007158xxl5.aspx . You can find YouTube videos on changing the belt. There are other parts that transfer the forces form the belt to the needle bar. However, I suggest you find a good sewing machine mechanic if any of these parts fail.

The manual has good pictures of the bobbin spindle on page 11 (page 18 of the PDF). Singer has the manual on their support page: http://www.singerco.com/support/instruction-manuals . The direct link to the manual is http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/e06cb85928ace9753f1a7124f4a2df6168ffecf0.pdf .

I hope this helps.

Thread wrapped around sewing machine wheel & under belt, how do i get the wheel off to remove thread??? Singer HD 4423 model.


It depends on your model. If you look at it and it has what looks like a white disk in the center, that disk is covering a screw. Pop it off and take out the screw.

If it doesn't, then it's what's known as a "force fit." You need to squeeze it while gently rocking it until it comes off. Larger hands make the process easier.

Can't hand turn wheel


Do the following and you may have some progress:
1. Remove the bobbin and carrier. Try to turn. (Material stuck in the feed dog, bobbin, carrier or hook (pointed thing under the carrier) will cause the hand wheel to stick.This is the usual problem.
2. Remove the top and bottom and give it a good squirt of oil in areas that move. Wipe some off after you get it going.
3. At the end where the motor/hand wheel is remove the plate to see if the belt is broken or off of the pulley.
4. To get this going again you will have to do some forcing.

Sewing machine grinding and needle won't go up and down without force. Air and cloth cleaned what I could.


THIS IS HARD W/O BEING THERE. ANYWAY HERE ARE SOME IDEAS:
1. REMOVE BOBBIN, CARRIER AND CLEAN AREA. OIL IN THE RACE (UNDER WHERE THE CARRIER GOES)-ONE DROP ONLY. TRY TO HAND ROTATE. IF IT IS OK THEN THE BOBBIN CARRIER WAS INSTALLED WRONG.
2. MOVE THE NEEDLE BAR BY MOVING THE HAND WHEEL. PLACE ONE DROP OF OIL ON THE BAR.
3. REMOVE THE TOP OF MACHINE AND MONITOR ALL MOVING PARTS AND CLEAN (USE QUE TIP). ANY PARTS STUCK TOGETHER MAY NEED A SMALL AMOUNT OF CARBURETOR CLEANER. OIL ALL MOVING METAL PARTS THAT MAKE CONTACT WITH EACH OTHER.
4. UNDER THE MACHINE REMOVE THE LID AND CLEAN AND OIL JUST AS ABOVE.
5. TRY TO MOVE THE HAND WHEEL.
6. IF THIS STILL DOESN'T WORK THE BELT MAY BE OUT OF ALIGNMENT. THE BELT HAS TO BE DONE BY REMOVING THE HAND WHEEL. ONCE THE BELT IS ACCESSED THE BOLT UNDER THE MOTOR IS LOOSENED. IF POSSIBLE TRY TO APPLY THE FOOT PEDAL A LITTLE WHILE ADJUSTING THE BELT. IT SHOULD NOT BE REAL TIGHT BUT MUST BE IN ALIGNMENT. PAY ATTENTION TO THE AMOUNT OF TURNS IT TAKES TO REMOVE THE OUTSIDE SHINY PART OF THE HAND WHEEL SO IT IS EASIER TO SET IT PROPERLY.

Error code 6 (thread in motor but there is none)


If you can turn the balance wheel by hand and the needle goes up and down it may be loose belts, if you can't turn the balance wheel by hand then there is definitely thread stuck somewhere in the raceway

Needle wont go up and down.


well,it seem that your upper camshaft was stuck due to several factor on mechanical linkages and maybe on gears.You have to isolate the checking since you have clean lower bobbins free from dirt and thread/fabrics chips.If there an opening on top of machine open it to check some mechanical destorsion or breakage.Check some broken gears inside.If nothing try to open also at the bottom of machine cover and there are also belt and gears connected to the motors and bobbins shuttle holder if so oil all shafting oil port,oil port bushing specially on bushing near hand wheel there is port for oil,
check also motor assembly of machine,you can disconnect belt from motor release the bolt holding motor adjust to lower tension belt and release the belt.Take some tools such as monkey pliers or small pipe wrench that can hold hand wheel just crack in order to move suddenly after oiling for several hours sometime bushing and shafting rushes emerged or if you have anti rush spray put in on.After cracking and you can move a little crack only by your hand several time lleft and right until all linkages free from rush.If you can move all parts and hand wheel rotate freely.Check also motor by rotating the small pulley conncted to motor if free to move.if ok put back and reassembly all parts disconnected.try to move again by hand if free to move after all asssembly.Run machine using foot pedal.
