I would suspect (as this has happened to me) that gear shift lever is broken inside the case - or other internal problem.

The foot pedal is not moving the machine but still makes a noise


A: You said, "The your foot pedal is not moving the machine, but still makes a noise". . . . I'd suggest checking if the sewing machine has a disengaged or broken drive belt, gear or linkage; if not the problem, may just be that the Hand-Wheel clutch mechanism (on the left center of the Hand Wheel) is in the Bobbin-Winding position. If so, it allows the machine to cycle, operating the Bobbin-Winder without the needle moving up or down. Older Brother machines, like many other brands, used a large flat shiny Screw Knob in the center of the Hand Wheel to engage or disengage the Bobbin-Winding feature, newer models use a plastic teeter-totter switch located in the same place, to do the same thing. Keep tinkering, you'll will resolve it.

Needle is not moving


Of course I have to guess here--not seeing the machine, but it appears that your motor is working fine. That would leave two possibilities, I think. The first is a defective foot pedal. The second is, when you push the bobbin winder, it engages a clutch that diverts power from the needle shaft to the winder. It is possible that the clutch is stuck. To find out, disengage the bobbin winder and press the foot pedal, and see if the bobbin winder spindle is still spinning.

Bobbin Winder


I looked in the manual for this machine, and I can't find out what "E2" means to your machine. However, there IS a list of FAQ at the back of the manual that is generally helpful. The first thing I would do, though, is turn off the machine, push the bobbin winder spindle all the way to the right to engage it, then firmly push it to the left. When you engage the bobbin winder, it activates a clutch that diverts power to the winder; that clutch might not be totally disengaged. Also, make sure your buttonhole lever is all the way up, and you have not selected the twin needle function. You might want to contact Singer through their FB account and ask what E2 means.

HAND CRANK WON'T MOVE NEEDLE SEEMS TO HAVE LOST CONTACT WITH GEAR


adjustment info here. http://www.parts.singerco.com/IPinstManuals/15.pdf

And here is a manual for you. http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/34_sm15.pdf

Those stop motion pieces must be put together correctly. Also make sure your needle is fully seated into the needle bar. Also look for any binding of metal parts. I had a 128 that came to me with a bent take up lever that would catch and make hand cranking difficult.

Good luck.. you'll love your old singer when you get it going well. Take your time and try not to get to frustrated.

One more thing... this blog is awesome if you are working on old singers.

Kenmore sewing machine Model 1602: I was filling a bobbin and when I went back to sewing - the needle won't go up and down. Motor runs when I press on the footpad. It is as if the clutch is stuck as well...


Sound like you need to take it out of bobbin winder mode. Suggest looking for a way to engage the clutch. Turn the center knob on hand wheel and or move the bobbin winding post back to postion.

The center hand wheel should move about 1/3 turn towards you to look it back into place.

I have a kenmore 148.12210 machine with no manual. I cannot get the bobbin winder to move though the wheel moves when I loosen the clutch. I also cannot get the machine to move!. It looks like it wants to...


Be sure the bobbin switch is engaged when you disengage the clutch. Are the feed dogs raised or did they get lowered by accident? You may have a broken belt or a stretched out one which will have to be replaced. That's why nothing is moving.

Hand wheel is stuck


hi there,
well,stuck up hand wheel, is due to mechanical obstruction inside machine,bushing on shafting need to oil,and on handwheel bushing near clutch there is oil port there. since hand wheel are connected to cam shaft with set of gears and pulley is coupled to motor pulley,and other linkage under bobbins,shuttle race etc,broken gears are most common causes of stuck up handwheel,we can consider also the brush carbon,when worn out and damage the rotor commutator brush.if you can open the cover of motor below side of handwheel,you can see the pulley and motor assembly.also on top of machine there an opening to see the top gear assembly,this should be done by service technician.try to bring to nearest service center if still under warranty claim this for lesser maintenance cost.have a nice day,don't forget to rate me.thank's.

Bobbin won't wind


I also have the 15358. You probably forgot to "lock" the bobbin winder. After you put the bobbin case on it's peg, push the peg to the right until you hear a click. Then after you disengage the clutch, the bobbin will wind.

Bobbin clutch just spins


Clutch is disengaged only for winding thread onto the bobbin.

When done, re-engage (tighten) clutch and with bobbin in bobbin case, hold needle thread, rotate handwheel until needle is top centre of it's motion then pull threads thru allowing approx 100mm (4") slack .....you are ready to sew.

If this isn't what you were asking, then I'm not sure why you have disengaged the clutch, so more detail please.

Singer futura ce-100 embroidery machine


Under the embroidery attachement (on the front side) is a lever to engage or disengage the "feed dog control." When embroidering, you need to move the lever to the level to disengage. The feed dog control should only be at the righe side position, or raised when you are not using the embroidery attatchment.
