Phone the shop where you bought it and arrange to take it back...this should not happen to a new machine....and if it is something you are doing, they will be able to advise you, if it is the machine, they will sort it out under warantee.

Kenmore 19233 sewing machine. Then handwheel is broken, spins freely. Machine works perfectly otherwise. How do I remove the handwheel and replace it.


If the drive belt is not off or broken, then check hand-wheel setting. On some models the hand wheel can be pushed in (to engage) and pulled out (to disengage) for using bobbin winder. If it is disengaged the hand-wheel will spin freely. On older models there is a smaller wheel that has to be hand tightened in order to engage rest of machine. Hope this helps.

How to remove front casing from innovis 4000 brother sewing machine


I would contact Brother, they have an outstanding service department. But if the thread is only around the hand wheel, try pulling it outward to see if you can access the thread that way. Many hand wheels pop out, to disengage the needle mechanism so you can wind a bobbin.

The machine will not turn the spindle to wind cotton onto the bobbin.


What model Bernina is it? Most operate on a simple system where a rubber wheel on the bobbin winder comes into contact with the handwheel (under the cover) ... the handwheel is disengaged so the needle has no drive.......

Have a singer 3221/3232 cannot disengage handwheel to fill bobbin what am I doing wrong


Are you sure you have to pull or push? It looks to me like you just slide the bobbin winder spindle to the right to engage.

Here's a manual for your machine... I'm sure more specific info is in there.

Model no. 158.17741. the belt is moving, the motor is running, but the part that goes up and down with the thread is not, the belt seems to be tight enough


Check the centre of the handwheel, there will either be A) an inner wheel or B) push/pull device to disengage the needle arm when bobbin winding....it needs to be A) tight, or B) pressed in to re-engage the clutch for sewing......your manual will probably have a diagram,
I could not find a picture of this model, so unsure of the exact mechanism, but it is in the middle of the handwheel

Threading the bobbin, disengage the needle


Depending what brand and model of sewing machine it is, you can usually disengage the needle bar with the knob inside the handwheel by turning it towards you. If you've done that and the needle bar still moves, it needs oil and should be serviced by a technician.

Needle wont go up or down


If the Handwheel (big knob) is moving but the needle is not moving, you need to engage the clutch ........depending on the model

- push handwheel in to engage, pull out to disengage
or
- if there is a smaller wheel inside the handwheel, tighten to engage, loosen to release.

BUT if all is jammed........

Check for threads that are jamming the motion of the hook around where the bobbin case is

If your bobbin goes in from the top, remove the needleplate and bobbincase remove thread jams by gently rocking handwheel back and forth until released.

Clean around the hook race with a rag moistened with methylated spirit, surgical spirit or similar, then reassemble.

If front loading, open the door for bobbin case area, release 2 retaining clips holding the collar on (take note of the position/orientation for when you re-assemble....even take a digi photo to refer to !?!).....
......then just do jam removal & clean out in much the same way as for the top loader.

In all cases, don't force too much or be too brutal, gentle and patient works best, try to judge where the jam is caught and work with it slowly......you may need to cut jammed threads, just ensure all are removed before you re-assemble.

Handwheel is stuck


NEVER force a newer model machine. Everything inside is plastic and WILL break. Remove the needle, bobbin, bobbin case, and unthread the machine. See if the handwheel turns. If it doesn't, several things could be wrong. The lower end machines won't have belts to come off, they will be fully gear driven. If it is a better machine, it might be a belt problem. Small pieces of thread could be stuck in a gear mesh somewhere. A gear could be broken. It is possible for a gear to break on the first use.
