Try oiling it as per your manual and clean it out thoroughly with a brush. I am hoping that it is not your timing because that is not a do it yourself job. Good luck

Hand piece is very tight to turn and unable to use the machine


Make sure to clean/remove all the lint, thread, dust, etc. that may have built up in the bobbin area, around the feed dogs, and under the needle plate. Sometimes gunk build-up will prevent the hand wheel from turning. Remove the bobbin & bobbin case from the machine and the needle and see if the hand wheel will turn. If not, then it may be time for service.

My hand wheel is hard to move and will not make complete turn unless...

I have a singer cxl electronic sewing machine and i have a problem with the needle either not moving or stopping when stitching the larger motifs or the zigzag stitch, somtimes the needle jut moves too...


The needle either not moving or stopping is a sign that the machine is jamming. Here's the answer for the question "My machine is jammed" from the FAQs on Singer's web site at http://www.singerco.com/support/faqs.html

A jammed machine is caused by thread being caught in the hook. Remove the upper thread and the bobbin case, turn the hand wheel towards you (counterclockwise) by hand and remove any thread in the bobbin case area. *Always turn the hand wheel towards you. Turning the hand wheel away from you (clockwise) can cause the machines timing to become unaligned and jam your machine. Also, always make sure the presser foot is in the down position before you start sewing. Sewing with the presser foot in the up position will jam your machine in the bobbin case.

Your description of the needle hitting the plate or foot is an indication that the machine's timing has become unaligned which can be caused as indicated above by turning the hand wheel away from you - the correct way is to *Always turn the hand wheel towards you.

My sewing machine is like stuck or something the nob wont turn it wont sew it wont do any thing but make a noise


Is the thread jammed around the bobbin area? Open up the bobbin cover and check it all out, clean out any jammed or broken threads and rethread the machine.

The other thing to check is that the clucth in the side wheel is engaged. If you disengage the clutch to wind a bobbin, ensure that you engage it again to start sewing.

Hope this helps, otherwise it might be serviceman time.

Check the manual for maintenance infromation.

Noise can be from lint in the bobbin area.

After cleaning, re-thread the machine with the presser foot up to see the combination of cleaning and "presser foot up" threading helps.

Hand wheel is hard to turn


If you take out the bobbin case and slide off the needle pate, you can inspect the bottom area for a thread jam. The black post that the bobbin case slides onto is called the thread hook. It should have a loose feel to it when you gently move it around, it should not have a "solid feel".

Another area that sometimes wraps the thread is the take up lever area.
(the lever that moves really fast up and down as the machine is sewing)
If the lever has been pushed to the left, it's possible the thread has wrapped up in that area.

If those two areas are o.k. you'll need to take it in for service.

Machine is jamming


You need to remove the bobbin from the "race" by following the instructions in the manual. Give it a good clean and remove any bits of fluff and thread. Remove the upper thread also andmake sure that the tension wheel is clear of any broken threads and is on the correct setting. It may have been threaded wrong. The hand wheel not turning sounds like the bobbin area is jammed also.
