How do i get the needle to stop moving when winding the bobbin?


Most machines will have a smaller wheel inside the handwheel that you turn towards the front of the machine, while holding the larger outer handwheel. If the needle still moves after doing this you'll need to work oil through the handwheel bushing.

Belts intact, press on pedal, motion in belts, but not on needle end


does the needle go up and down when you turn the handwheel by hand? if so, one of the belts may be slipping - tighten it enough to make it grab.

if the handwheel does not make the needle go up and down, is the handwheel lock for bobbin winding un-locked? if so tighten the handwheel lock inside the handwheel. if the handwheel lock is tightened and the handwheel spins when motor runs the handwheel lock is asembled incorrectly. if this is the case, undo screw in handwhhel lock nut and spin lock nut off machine, then remove pronged washer and turn 1/3 turn and re-install.

Singer Model 5050 Timing Problem


Actually,timing of needle vs, shuttle is not very easy job several factor you should check on.There is belt ot sometime a shafting with worm gear and helical gear under machine w/c drive the shuttle with the bobbins in timing order,Any one of them is present on the timing adjustment can be done by releasing the belt or the helical gear,besure machine is unplug then set all mechanism on low dead center meaning the needle move to utmost lower position catching this by the shuttle and bobbins at center position.No motion applied if this was set up,engage the belt with pulley and the bobbins link holder tigh allenscrew besure the needle is lower dead center at the center of shullle bobbins catching needle without motion when setting back at original position.If this was made manually move it on handwheel going up and side down the needle gradually if the needle move freely several time and it was catching this by the shuttle hook bobbins.if ok put thread bobbins and upper thread dial tension with the needle.Move machine on handwheel try to catch the bobbins thread,If this so your machine is ready to sew again if problem occurs on alignment repeat adjustment on perpect alignment,besure all parts on upper casing of machine specially two drive gear are in normal alignment.

Handwheel doesn't move needle


Sounds like the connection between the handwheel and the needle as disconnected (needle bar). It appears from the picture that this is a version of a mass-market product geared for kids/very light duty sewing.

If so, you may be able to reconnect this by removing the side-cover or top-cover of the machine (if removable). The problem is going to be re-timing the needle with the hook/bobbin assembly.

If you are unable to reconnect or get the timing correct, a good local machine dealer/repair tech should be able to take care of it for you. Unfortunately, the cost of having a technician fix may be way more than you want to pay or the machine is worth.

Best of luck with your repair,

The needles are changed by inserted the hex wrench into what looks to be holes on the front and left side where the needles go into the machine.I'm not sure what size the hex wrench is but it's pretty small. From the manual,
"Removing Needle: Unplug the machine. Turn the handwheel counterclockwise to raise the needle bar to its highest position. Loosen the needle clamp with the allen wrench and pull the needle out." and
"Inserting needle: When the neddle bar is at the highest position, insert a new needle in the needle holder, making sure that the groove of the needle faces you. Push the needle as far up as it will go and tighten the needle clamp screw." "Removing Needle: Unplug the machine. Turn the handwheel counterclockwise to raise the needle bar to its highest position. Loosen the needle clamp with the allen wrench and pull the needle out."

The machine takes DB x 1, or 1738 needles, and a size 14 needle is recommended.

Hope this helps!

It is a clutch issue.

If you can turn the handwheel manually and the motor belt is running OK but the needle will not move, you will need to check the clutch mechanism for the bobbin winder.


There are three ways for the clutch to engage, and as I do not know your machine, I offer all three for you to see which applies to yours.

Flick winder to the left to engage needle arm motion.......it may activate automatically when the winder is set to wind a new bobbin and de-activate the needle arm

or

there may be a small wheel inside the larger handwheel....tighten the inner wheel to engage needle arm...

or

the handwheel may have a push/pull action ....push in to activate the clutch, pull out for bobbin winding.

If there is any more you need to ask or update your info to refine the question, just post back here, or drop a line through the "Contact Us" page at www.bargainbox.com.au
