This sounds like there may be some oil that has turned to varnish and is therefore, seizing the stop motion knob in place. The old oil will have to be dissolved unless it has just been overly tightened. With the machine not used in some time, it should be serviced and lubed so it will work like new again.

Brother 1100, was sewing , now it is froze, cant turn the wheel far either way, cleaned, wants to go but is stuck, I cant see any thread in bobbin plate but I think that is where issue is advise


You could check the bobbin winder shaft. If this is engaged the machine appears to have frozen while turned on. Move the bobbin winder shaft left, then right while checking the foot controller and you will soon know if this is the problem.

Release stop motion knob won't move


What are you calling a stop motion knob? Are you trying to stop the needle from moving while winding a bobbin?

I cannot loosen stop motion knob so that I can wind a bobbin.


Sometimes the knob locks so tight it requires a good strong beefy man to loosen it. Turn it counter clockwise!! You can also wind without loosening the knob, just MAKE SURE to unthread the machine and to sew for winding only. It works for all industrial machines, without loosening the knob.

My husband was given a used Brother Sewing Machine model VX950 but it didn't come with a manual. When he sets the stitch length and proceeds to sew the adjustment knob moves and will not maintain the...


You can get a user's manual and a service manual from this site - http://www.sewusa.com/Sewing_Machine_Manuals/Brother_Manuals/Brother_Service_Manuals/VX-940-950_Service_Manual.htm

The knob could be broken or just gunked up - try a hair dryer to soften up the years of lubrication and dust to see if the knob is moving because it cannot lock in at the length selected - like sliding on ice.

There is cluch on the handwheel that connect motion,try to tighen this If negative,There are two small bevel gear (hard PVC )connecting to the upper crankshaft where the handwheel was connected.This transmit motion when motor run, most commonly the vertical rod where one bevel gear was connected maybe broken or viceversa at the upper crankshafting that holding the bevel drive gear is broken try to check this.

Handwheel on Sewing machine no longer moves needle.


Actually you should have a "set screw" in the hand wheel. The set screw is usally locked down tight to keep the hand wheel from spinning freely. I f you can run the machine slowly and hold the hand wheel in one place but the machine continues running, then you do need to replace the "set screw". If you replace it you will find that you can offset some of the machines vibration by where you lock the wheel down. Trial and error is the only way to achive this adjustment, kind of like balancing the tires on your car.

Stop motion knob won't tighten


Remove the stop motion wheel and you will see another part that is loose(looks kind of like a washer with ears on it). Reposition this on the shaft and put the stop motion wheel back on. The stop motion wheel was too loose and it allowed the washer to fall off the shaft. The screw is nice to have and it keeps the washer from falling off the shaft but it's not absolutely necessary to use the machine. Just be caredul when winding the bobbin.

I have only a cheap one (VX-1100), but when this is happening on mine, the stop-motion knob isn't fully engaged with the balance wheel. They are held together by one being tightened to the other for sewing, loosened for bobbin winding. Michael
