First remove the needle, bobbin parts and check for thread jammed. Removing one peice at a time and checking if it will turn will tell you what the problem is when it unjams. If none of these things are the problem it may be in the motor linkage.

Why doesn't it sew?

Check to see if the bobbin case is in correctly. Jamming occurs when something isn't in machine properly. Try taking out the needle & manually turning the hand wheel slowly. It could be just a bent needle too.

Machine will not feed fabric except for the first couple of stitches

if you have a manual check to see where the feed dog lever is and
see if it's in the up position for sewing or the down position ,
also possible that something is wrong with the feed dogs and
they made need some type of adjustment.

My singer sewing machine 7430 keeps acting like its catching on something when you turn the handwheel. Also, while sewing all of a sudden the needle hit the plate and broke x2

Your machine sounds like it needs retiming unless you are using a needle bigger than a size 16, I can attach instructions if you want to do it yourself.

It's new. I threaded the bobbin but now won't sew at all and knob will not move needle up and down. Acts like it wants to move and you can hear something in the housing trying but won't sew. Knob acts...

You may have jammed it, or you haven't picked a stitch pattern, read your manual because I am sure that it is something simple. If, you still can't get it, call Singer at 1-800-4singer. Good luck, Do you have your dvd, play that and read your manual really close.

Motor stuck

If you have mice in the house, they may have gotten around the moving parts underneath and urinated and so forth on the working parts. My dad had go in and use a break-free lubricant and physically force the gears to move again in order to free up the working parts. It was bad. Would'nt move at all. Now it moves good again, but I have to find someone to fix the timing of the gears. It's out of timing, but it moves again.
