Connect the cahin (kidding). The pawls, something along the lines of these (http://www.bikepro.com/products/hubs/hubs_ringle.html) inside the rear hub are probably shot or just stuck in a position that doesn't engage the cog to the innards. A shot of thin spray lube (NOT WD-40) might loosen things up temporarily. A new rear wheel is probably the only permanant fix unless you can get someone to tear it down and rebuild it cheaper.

How they do it on REAL bikes...

HOW TO FIX SINGER SEWING MACHINE MODEL 223; GREASE WAS USED AND MACHINE IS FROZEN THOUGH MOTOR SEEMS TO BE RUNNING OK


Make sure no thread is caught in shuttle, or around bobbin case, etc. Check "plate teeth" also. Manually turn handle/wheel to engage and slow press pedal.

Is there a burning smell of rubber? Bad motor. Check warranty.

My daughter's brand new, right out of the box Janome 2212 machine is not working. The foot pedal is not engaging the motor so the needle doesn't move up and down. The wheel is pushed in as it


Sorry, but gotta ask is it plugged in and turned on? Check before you answer. (I ask this because it happened to me, set up, ready to go, and no power. After an hour and the machine was in pieces, My son asked if i plugged it in and I snapped "YES, DUH" not seeing him twirling he plug in his hand...he informed me that you must be 10% smarter than anything you operate or eat....at which point he was happy to inform me, the machine was 11% smarter. If it is plugged in and turned on, is the plug to the foot pedal plugged all the way in? Is the machine on? If you get zero reaction, no movement or sound of any kind, the foot pedal my be faulty, it can happen. Take it back to the dealer and they should replace the entire machine or the foot pedal. Good luck and happy sewing.

Why does my T500 sometimes stop


if the machine has been sitting for awhile and you oiled it that will
help, it could be the belt is too loose or the motor is going out or the
foot pedal needs to be checked to see if something is wrong with it.
it would be a good idea to have the machine checked at a sewing
machine shop.

The DVD part of the machine keeps skipping and now just won't play any DVD's.


I push the VHS Cartridge in, it drops down to the play position, the front door opens, the tape comes out, it goes around the chrome wheel that is spinning, but it will not play, will not rewind, will not fast forward. It then shows "Error" and the machine shuts off, with the tape still around the chrome wheel, When I turn the machine back on, the VHS Cartridge ejects from the machine. This machine has been used very little, I loaned it to my Son In Law and it came back with the VHS Tape Deck not playing. I have the machine open, so I can see what it is doing.

My son has the Huffy rock out bike. The pedal fell off, and so I was sent the whole single arm crank and new pedals. I have no owners manual, and no assembly instructions whatsoever. Along with the crank...


The reason the pedal fell of is because of a bad set up. Who assembled the bike? If, you did, guess what! You did not tighten the pedal to the crank arm to begin with. If, Walmart or other discount store did it, have them fix it. You have to understand. you bought the bike without professionals putting it together and sometimes that is a problem when you don't have the knowledge of what you are doing. You have to pay one way or another. When you let a kid ride a bike that is not assembled correctly you are endangering them. My advice is :Get it fixed right.

Son's can pedal 12" bike


Yes, something isn't turning freely. It's either the front wheel, the back wheel, or the pedals and chain. Lift the bike off the ground and turn the front wheel by hand. If it doesn't turn very freely, it could be the hand-brake is dragging or the hub bearing is too tight. Try the back wheel in both directions. It should move freely in the forward direction. When rolling it backwards it is normal for the pedals to move too if this bike has a coaster brake (that is the kind of brake that is applied by pushing the pedals backwards.) It the back wheel moves forward freely, but backwards is a problem, then try the pedals by hand with the rear wheel off the ground. If this doesn't turn freely, the pedal crank bearing (a.k.a. bottom bracket) is too tight. Once you have identified the problem take it back to where you got it. It should be easy to fix, or they should replace it.

Pedals spin wheel doesn't turn


Bottom brackets just connect the cranks to the bike and keep the drivetrain aligned while you wail on the pedals.

I assume you mean the rear wheel spins freely when you pedal after a coast or stop. That would be the pawls in the rear cassette, freewheel or axle failing to engage. When you coast, the whirring, clicking sound you would hear is the pawls gliding over the detents. When you apply forward torque, they drop into the detents and provide drive. Like a ratchet.

Have a shop look at it. Don't ride the bike if it's going to do that. You may stand up and stomp on the pedals and have it let go and wake up with a broken jaw because you went over the handlebars, if you survive being run over. The rear wheel and drive components are not beginner bike mechanics.

You don't say what kind of drive it is.

No front wheel traction for son's trike.


I am suspecting that the tire has come loose on the wheel itself. Try and see if you can get the tire off and using a glue like contact cement; glue the tire on the rim so it won't spin when he is pedalling.Hope this helps.

Kettler Air Navigator Tricycle


My husband and I just put this trike together and had a similar problem - the front wheel always turned the pedals and we couldn't figure out how to stop this. The manual for the trike is awful and very hard to understand. After spending a LOT of time analyzing the pictures and doing all sorts of weird things to the pedals, I found a posting on a website that said they'd had the same problem, but had removed and re-attached the front wheel and the problem was suddenly fixed. Sounds too good to be true, right? Well, we noticed that in one of the manual's pictures that the air valve for the front tire was facing the other direction - we'd actually put the tire on backwards. I took the tire off, put it back on facing the other way, and suddenly it all works as it's supposed to.

The thing is, you actually don't have to "do" anything to change from free to fixed and keep the pedals stable. If my daughter pushes the pedals around, they move around, and if she keeps her feet steady on them, the wheel continues to go around while the pedals stay put. It truly is automatic, which the diagram in the manual does a terrible job of conveying.

Hope this helps someone. We like this trike, but the directions are beastly!
