My machine started slowing down,
Hi most likely it is the Foot Controller that's at fault. This is the most commonest problem. Not the actual machine itself.
The "My machine started slowing down" is what gives it away, the ONLY thing that can cause a machine to slow down, is the controller, you most likely need to replace it, or at least get it looked at by a professional service man.
Take you machine in to a reputable servicing center for your brand and get them to look at it, ask for a "quote' for the repair.
If this doesn't prove to be the case then you may indeed have a seized motor, this would have to be replaced with a new one, that may prove quite expensive, however this will all be revealed after you get your "Quote". Which should explain what has been found, and how much it should cost.

Can't turn wheel
Check the area that contains the bobbin. There might be something loose in there. While you\'re in there, clean an oil this area. Also, open the end cover (left side of machine) and lubricate the swivel arm top and bottom and wait overnight for oil penetration; you can also use a hair blow dryer to speed this up. For oiling diagram, see:

Thread keeps breaking, Silk Fabric bunching u[
Machine breaks needles
1.make sure you are using the right needle for your type of sewing machine.
Most machines can use generic Schmetz needles. There are cases where the machine will only use ones specified in the owners manual.
2.the presser foot may not be installed properly
3.use the correct needle for the type of fabric you are working with. To fine of needle on heavy fabric or to course a needle on silk or jersey can damage fabric. make sure the correct needle for silk is being used.
4.let the feed dogs guide the fabric & the feed dogs will work with the presser foot .
5.the needle is not all the way in -push all the way up against the stop
also clean under the needle plate & in the bobbin area for lint or loose
check to make sure the feed dogs are completely in the up position
if none of these suggestions work then it's possible that the machine
is out of time & would have to retimed at a sewing machine shop
