Needle broke then it seized? Could be any number of things from a bent upper arm to a motor that needs servicing. I recommend you take it in for professional repair.

Please don't use WD40 on your sewing machine, WD40 is an alcohol based cleaner and will do the opposite of lubricate. Take your machine to a certified Bernina Repair shop, they will have a look at the timing and lubricate all of your gears. Lubricant will dry out over time, grease turns to putty and oils turn to varnish after several years of non-service. Lint is attracted to moisture, moisture being those key areas of any machine. Lint acts like an oil wick and will draw out your lubricant from key areas. It then begins to attract dust and other nasty things over the years to become grit. Your motor begins to burn out due to stress trying to move all of these clocked gears, cams and shafts. Take your machine in!

SOURCE: When I was last sewing, my needle kept seizing up

What are you try to sew? If, it is heavy denim or something, sometimes the needle needs to be a heavier grade, like a 16 or 18 if that is not the problem, I think that it is your timing is causing the problem. You probably will need to take it in for service because if I am right, it is not a do it yourself job. You need the tools and expertise to fix it. Try to go to a shop that does Singer warranty work, I don't know if your machine is new but even if it isn't at least they know the machines. You can find them listed at If there isn't one near you, try to find a shop you can trust. Good luck

Your machine sounds like it needs retiming unless you are using a needle bigger than a size 16, I can attach instructions if you want to do it yourself.

Be sure not to use Singer Needles. They are longer than standard needles. Don't know if this helps, but I did this once on my Huskystar 207 and that is what happened. It also damaged the bobbin thread.

I have acquired jones cb sewing fine except occasionally when stopped in middle of a seam wont restart but hums.will restart after turning handwheel.

Sounds like it is seizing due to old dried oil. May need a thorough cleaning and oiling. If this is the case, it would be good to avoid further use until it is repaired as continued use could damage the motor.

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