Question about Sewing Machines
Is the clutch disengaged to wind the bobbin? Is the needle going up and down okay?
If the needle is moving but the rotary hook is not rotating to catch the thread from the bobbin then it is likely that a gear has gone in the free arm area which drives the rotary hook.
If this is a star series TSP you may be able to remove the cover plate on the free arm area and view the shaft and gear in this area. Its just held down with a single screw near the needle plate.
If the pinon gear looks worn or split, then probably best job for a mechanic to replace this.
