Question about Husqvarna Sewing Machines

Open Question

Hand wheel on machine E20, is extremely hard to rotate, the machine has been sewing but has gradually come to a stop. I have checked that there is no cotton build up at the bobbin site. I feel that maybe it needs oiling but do not know the oiling point for the hand wheel. Can you help me please.

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....

Is the bobbin the correct size? if you have spare bobbins do they all have the same problem?

If I understand the problem, the bobin winder has probably lost a rubber 'o' ring.

Unscrew the two top screws and remove the top cover. At the base of the bobin spindle is a metal disk that should have a rubber 'o' ring on it. This will perish over time and break off.

When the bobin winder is pushed sideways into the active position, this should contact the main turning handle thingy (that's a technical term) and be spun around. Check if the bobin 'o' ring is making contact or if it is even there at all. Any sewing machine repair shop (or good automotive store if you're desperate) will have a replacement.

SOURCE: can't tighten clutch on Kenmore zig zag sewing machine.

The clutch has fallen off the shaft. Remove the very small screw in the clutch release screw to remove the clutch release. Place the clutch(round thing with ears on it) back on the shaft with the center ears pointing towards the outside. Put the clutch release screw back on. Tighten it to make sure it works
properly. Put the small screw back in the clutch release screw and test it again. If it will not tighten or release properly, remove the clutch ,rotate it180 degrees and try it again.This should solve your problem.

SOURCE: Oiling my Janome Gem Gold

Janome Gem are self lubricating. Silicon is embedded in the gears and releases as it runs. If the machine is put away and not run every so often it will lock up. The hand wheel may have thread caught up around it. The Gems aren't assembled to be dissembled except to change the light bulb.

Machine runs, then slows down, then stops, will start again but acts as if it is jammed with thread but does not have thread caught any where.


threads and fluff get jammed around the rotating shafts and act as a brake to moving parts
Take the machine in for a service

Hand wheel rotates but stop motion screw doesn't rotate and it is not moving the needle up or down


Robin. Take off the hand wheel. Look for the funny looking washer with ears. The center fingers should be angled outward when you fit it into place (counter intuitive, I know) Fit everything back together and try it again.

How do I load a bobbin?


There should be a small spindle up on top near the wheel (right hand side).
Start winding the thread on by hand a few wraps to hold it in place and put the bobbin on that small spindle, making sure it is going to wind the proper way. To find out what way it will wind you can first (without the bobbin) push the spindle to the right so that it spins when the wheel turns, turn the wheel by hand for this so you can see which way it is spinning the spindle. Is it clockwise or counterclockwise? Then put your bobbin on and push it to the right so that the wheel will turn the spindle as you press the foot pedal. You should have some sort of tension clip on the top left of your machine, it looks something like the top of a big screw or may be a flat hook. Put the threat under that so that it goes directly from the spool to the bobbin, NOT through the needle. As gradually as possible wind the thread onto the bobbin but not too full, most machines will stop filling it when the bobbin is full. If yours does not, stop filling it when there is still about 1/16 th of an inch room left.

Im trying to sell a Kenmore 117 - 959 but I can't get it to move. There is power to the work light, but Im stuck. Help!


If your gaskets are bad, the machine will not rotate. Can you move it by hand? If not then have you checked the gasket in the back of machine that comes in contact with the hand wheel? If it is making contact, this is what runs the machine and both the little black gasket and the hand wheel will spin when you rotate by hand. If the hand wheel is free spinning then it may need oiled. If you have a manual, try oiling the complete machine according to manual.
