That sounds like your drive belt is not working. Try taking the cover off the right hand side of the machine (two screws, one in the side, one on the bottom) and look inside to see if the drive band is on all the way or if its broken. It could also need to be tightened. There should be a screw that mounts the motor and will allow you to tighten or loosen the drive band.

Good luck!

I have a Necchi model 537FA. When u step on petal, it won't move. Does this machine have 2 BELTS? I only see one. I have oiled before running.


If you don't have any movement or hear the machine attempting to sew, you may have a burnt out pedal.
You should hear a slight hum when pressing on the pedal. If you don't hear a hum, the pedal is probably dead.
These can usually be ordered from the merchant who sold you the machine.

Bernina 1030 starts by itself and runs very slowly some time after parking the needle at the top


This is most likely a fault in the foot control. Normally supplied with this machine is a Type 10 and this can be fixed quite easily but probably not by the machine's owner unless you have some electrical and mechanical experience.

If you have knowledge of and access to a multimeter, you can test it. What working properly, you will find the following:
Pedal released: resistance is infinite (anything around 4k Ohms or less and the machine will run).
Heel pressed: resistance is about 10k Ohms.
Toe steadily pressed from nothing to all the way down: resistance is infinite then after a small depression, jumps to about 4k Ohms steadily decreasing to zero as the pedal reaches all the way down.

Your problem, being at the point where the pedal isn't pressed suggests that there's some contamination in the pedal. It's also possible that you have a type 365 pedal (as used on the 930) and this is more likely to give this kind of trouble due to the use of carbon brushes in this foot pedal.

Make sure that the bobbin winder stop is up. That is the little black post below the bobbin winder. If it is pressed down, the machine will not run.

When i press the pedal, the needle wont move and i already oiled the machine


press the hand wheel in. On this machine you pull the hand wheel out to disengage the needle while threading the bobbin and press it back in to reengage the needle.

Machine wont' run or stitch


It is most likely the machine belt is slipping, re tension the belt and you should be fine. Also, just in case the needle has lost it's point change it and put in a new one just to be safe.

Bobbin filling on Singer 626


The Singer 626 has a self-winding bobbin. You place the empty bobbin in the bobbin thingie (sorry for being so untechnical). On the left of the bobbin you will see a "lever" with a circular top on it (I think it is red-ish) Again, sorry for being so untechnical. Press the "lever" down. Thread your machine, thread the needle, wrap the excess thread from the needle around the knob that tightens the needle and holds it in place and press your foot down on the foot pedal. The bobbin will automatically wind as you hold the foot pedal down. Do not wind the thread onto the bobbin past the outer white line.
