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.

The foot pedal wont move the needle


Ok, I am assuming that you have an old style machine where the hand hand wheel has the larger balance wheel on the outside and inner knob to release the drive to the needle and feed dogs. If that has been removed and not put back together properly it won't work.

There is a special locking washer inside those that have "fingers" pointing to the inside of the circle. They must be fit into the shaft correctly before the knob is returned into place and the little screw is tightened down.

This guy is a bit of a windbag but watch his video... you'll at least see the part I'm talking about. He shows the part at about 9:50 in the video.

Do NOT turn it but one way,towards you ONLY,it sound like it's just stuck.Grap something rubberish that will help your grip and try again.Good Luck,don't let this keep you from sewing.

On the side of the 'knob', look for another wheel that tightens against that, so it engages, that's what it sounds like. When that second wheel is loose, it won't run, it just spins. From the photo I can find of the unit, it looks like that second wheel is below it, but I can't be certain. Let me know how you make out. Please rate and comment, thank you,

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.
