Sounds like the motor is trying to run but the other machine parts are not moving. If your machine is an older mechanical (not computerized), then it's very possible the machine has seized due to lack of regular cleaning and oiling. Avoid trying to run the machine in this condition as it can damage the motor.

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

SOURCE: foot pedal and thread guide

Same thing happened to my CE-200. It would only stitch one stitch at a time or else it would run full speed. My husband made an adjustment through a small hole on the back of the pedal and it now works much better. The adjustment hole apparently allows you to set the sensitivity of the electronics inside the pedal. He turned it slightly toward the + direction. It took a couple of small adjustments to get it to work nearly normal again.

SOURCE: The needle constantly breaks while embroidering.

My foot does this with different thickness of fabrics, it will make the foot land in different, areas, sometimes making the needle hit the foot. Always check needle position before you start embroidering. once your hoop is ready, check the clearance. I often have to use a small roll of non slip material under the foot handle, the one used to bring the foot down. And I use this to adjust the needle postition so it will always land in the middle of the embroidery foot. There is also a way to adjust the height of the needle arm but that's too complicated to get into here and I've never personally tried it.

Machine is behaving as if not getting any power, but light is on. Press foot pedal and absolutely nothing happens


There is probably a bad connection in your foot pedal. Try moving it around with your hands at the contact points while pressing to activate. If it goes when you are shifting its position then it needs to be fixed or replaced.

Janome hello kitty 525 won't feed fabric or needle does not move up and down. Everything seem to be thread correctly and clean.


Hi Thi: make sure the machine is not set to wind the bobbin. Turn the handwheel towards you and see if the needle moves. You may have a belt that has come off. Does the machine make noise like the motor is running when you press the foot control?

Need to know how to thread a 550 super stretch Riccar sewing machine?


  • Unthread the machine.
  • Raise the presser foot.
  • Turn the handwheel until the take-up lever is at it's highest position.
  • Set the upper tension dial/knob to 5.
    The threading path is as follows:

  • From the spool around the top guide, down through the right slot, up the left slot, through the eye of the take-up lever from right to left, down through the guide(s), through the needle from front to back.

Riccar 9600, no manual, how do we thread it?


If I remember it is reel of thread on the reel pin, make sure the presser foot is up and takeup lever at the top, take the thread to the left and over the top cotton guide, straight down through the tension disc and down to the larger guide, round the right and take the thread back up the left hand side, through the takeup lever right to left and follow the guides all the way down to the needle, thread needle front to back.

is the machine easy to turn by handwheel? if not it may be seizing and needs servicing.

if the machine is free to turn by hand it sounds like your foot control is in need of repair or replacement - see a tech.
