Question about Necchi 3102 Mechanical Sewing Machine
Machine worked when put into storage now is locked up. Motor tries to work but needle will not move up and down
The oil has dried out while in storage and the moving parts are frozen. I use liquid Tri-Flow Synthetic Oil. Open the top of the machine and put two drops of oil every place that metal rubs against metal. Gently hand rotate the handwheel to see how things move. (Probably shouldn't oil any plastic parts.) Then do the same in the bobbin area. If it is really stuck, use a handheld hair dryer and direct hot air into the top and bottom of the machine.
Once it is working again, be sure to clean and oil on a regular basis--at least every six months if it's not in use. When in use, oil and clean every 40 hours of constant sewing.

Sewing machines need to be worked periodically even if you aren't sewing a lot. The oils and greases inside get all gummed up and literally will seize them up. Your best bet is to take it to the pro, pay the $$$ and have them, clean, oil, grease, replace belts, and adjust. OR if you want to give it a try.. DIY... kerosene based cleaner. Clean it well, then oil it properly. Make sure the machine is UNPLUGGED while cleaning.

Hi! The motor pulley may be worn and cant turn properly causing the motor to be forced so much. The result will be an instant overheating that results to belt burn too. You will need to replace the motor, pulley and the belt now to make it running. Hope this helps and have a good one!
