Open the rear panel and check for a broken belt and whether the motor spins. In case both are OK it could be a bad capacitor issue as well. Good luck!

I don't need help with a washing machine, it's a sewing machine!


Looks like an older mechanical machine--looks very similar to a Bernina I have. Hopefully nothing is broken or out of alignment that would cause this. Refrain from forcing the motor to run while the machine's parts will not move freely or it could damage the motor.

These are great machines, however, they do need maintenance to keep them operating smoothly. They are very prone to seizing when the old oil dries and turns to varnish, thus preventing the parts from moving efficiently. Here's the method I've use to fix several older machines that suffered from this problem. The problem can affect any moving part of your machine, ie the needle bar, the selector knobs/dials/levers, the feed dogs, the handwheel, etc.

Wheel on right side that controls the needle up and down is very tight...

Why riccar a303 sewing machine just stop running?


Difficult to advise. Can you operate it manually by turning the handwheel clockwise? Does the motor make noise when you step on the foot control but the needle does not move?

It appears to be a mechanical machine. If so, it could need a good cleaning and oiling. That is probably a good place to start. (Consult your owner's manual and use ONLY fresh good quality sewing machine oil.) Could be a multiple of other things, ie loose/broken belt, foot control failure, carbon brushes or capacitor, electrical problem, motor problem... Probably best to take it in for service.

Will not spin with a load is in it, but will when empty


I suspect a bad motor winding or brushes problem, however could be as simple as a worn loose belt if its belt driven? if ur machine is like some maytag models which have a balance inertia switch that may have gone bad?

Epic el 2980 tension does not change


If the resistance worked before you moved it to where it is now then it's almost certainly a wiring issue. Make sure that each connection that was taken apart is perfect and that each pin is not bent. Make sure that all of the wiring moves freely and there is no pinch. If all of that is correct then it's most likely the resistance motor.

Washer won't spin, what do I do


Check the lid or door switch this is the usuall issue with a washer that won't spin. The other is a blocked pump or clogged pump filter.

01 Dodge Intrepid with 2.7l V6 turns over but won't start. Mechanic believes timing jumped adn advised motor is done...not worth fixing. Is this True? Can timing be reset? Scantool does not indicate...


The coils only power up during cranking check that first. If it sounds funny cranking,ie. cranks faster or slower than usual,then he's probably right about the timing belt. If it jumped the heads need to be replaced or rebuilt,both costly. Would be cheaper to put a used engine in.

Front loading washing machine will not tumble or spin


This sounds like a drive belt porblem. The belt that connects the drum motor to the drum has slipped/broken/worn out. A new drive belt will most likey fix this one...

Alternately, a loose or broken pulley. I don't suspect a bad motor, since you say you can hear it clicking and whiring...
