This can be a bit tricky, these are the steps I start with to free up a bound machine
1. lift pressere foot up
2. remove needle plate
3. remove bobbin, case, hook on side load bobbins
4. Try to turn hand wheel
5. If still stuck, remove top cover of machine and use a high quality oil and lube all metal to metal moving parts.
6. remove bottom of machine and oil.
7 look for something broken like gears or machine out of time

Wait a day or two for oil to get in a do it job, if still stuck contact a repair shop.

Only sews in reverse

Google your machine and find the knob for reverse. either pull it out or push it in. Should be on right side of machine. Found it and it is button on right and you just turn it to forward or reverse.

I can't get the large knob on the right side to turn counter clockwise

Could you please clarify? Do you mean the hand wheel? The top one? If it won't turn you likely have a bunch up in the bobbin area.

Just for your reference here is a copy of your user manual

A friend gave me a Singer 1120 with no manual. How do I change stitches on this machine?

The stitch window shows the letter that corresponds with the stitch you want so if you turn the dial on the right side of the machine to E you get the stitch under the letter E, turn it to B and you get the B stitch. If you want something in the RED row below, just turn the knob on the top front on the machine to the RED MARK and then you'll get the stitches on the red row. I think the mark is on the stitch length knob on the right but I'm not sure since I don't have this machine but i have taught someone that has it. Just look for it on that know first. If you need to order a manual contact Ron at and ask him for one. Hope this helps.

Reverse stitching on a singer 514, HELP!

In the center of the stitch length knob (at the right side of the machine) is a button. You would push that button in to get the machine to reverse.

Singer 1425-

When my Singer model 1425 wouldn't guide the fabric, the problem was that the gears were worn out. A very nice sewing machine repairman who's now out of business told my husband how to do it and we saved a lot of money!
