Needle won't move

I have a While sewing machine. When I press the foot, the needle does not move up and down. When I tried to move it manually, the knob won't move. Any ideas?

Please push the bobbin winder back to the left position and it will release the bobbin winder. Then you should be able to sew. If the needle won't move, you will need to tighten the turning wheel on the right side end of the machine. This should move your needle. Then you should be set to sew. This should help, it helped me!

The handwheel will turn manually but it will not move using the foot pedal. The sound it makes when I press on the foot pedal *sounds* like I am filling the bobbin.

Singer confience stylist beeps four time and won't let me sew


The beeps usually indicates that your machine is not ready to sew which probably means a function has been left in the activated mode, ie bobbin winder, buttonhole function, etc. . Here are some ideas:

Needle arm stuck


Firstly, do you pull the fabric as it goes through the machine; this is a surefire way to break needles. Tension imbalance shouldn't be breaking a needle; more likely the thread would break if the top tension is too tight. And botton tension shouldn't need adjusting at all.

It may be that your needle is striking the presser foot if you are applying some "pull" to the fabric at the back of the foot.

But sewing very heavy fabrics is a challenge for many domestic machines - upholstery, heavy denim and canvas is tough going for many machines. Some tough mechanical machines will manage it but many won't. You can try using a roller or walking (even feed) foot as this may help with moving the fabric through but often the feed dogs just can't grip and move the heavy fabric enough. If you need to sew heavy fabrics regularly maybe consider finding a 2nd hand industrial straight stitch machine such as the Singer 20U.

In the case of your Bernettte, remove the needle plate (two screws), pressure foot, stub of needle and bobbin and then search the bobbin rotary hook area and see if there is a piece of needle stuck anywhere, you may need to turn the machine upside down and see if it falls out of the race area. I think this machine has a plastic horizontal bobbin case ??? If so, you will probably find that this has dislodged and may have been struck by the needle so remove it and give it a good visual check for damage, if there is a pierce mark, then give this a file down with an emery board to smoooth it. While it is out, see if the flywheel will now rotate the rotary hook fully.

Then reassemble by putting the bobbin case back in lining up the mark on the case with the stopper in the rotary hook, replacing the needle plate, pressure foot and a new needle.

If you can't get it to unlock at all, then it will need to go to a technician for repair.

Beginner on a sewing machine just got a Euro- Pro from my aunt having a hard time getting it to sew something. I threaded it and ready to go now it wont sew soooo what might be wrong with it?


See if you can find your model here and refer to the instructions to see if you missed something when you threaded the machine - http://www.sewusa.com/Sewing_Machine_Threading_Diagrams.htm

Always thread a sewing machine with the presser foot up so the thread enters the tension so it will properly work when the foot is down for sewing.

Check the needle to be sure it is inserted correctly - this is usually with the flat side facing the back of the machine.

Hold onto the thread tail at the needle and handwalk the needle down and back up, which will bring up the bobbin thread.

Hold onto both threads and pull them under the presser foot and to the back of the machine.

Place the fabric under the presser foot. Lower the foot and move the needle down into the fabric - press the 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.
