Belt slipping sewing machine simplicity

The needle will go up and down if I crank the wheel by hand. But whenever you go to push on the power pedal, all you get is a slipping belt noise. Was working with a heavier fabric when the needle got stuck in down position. Now the belt just seems to be loose. Need to know how to access belt area. Instruction manual has nothing about belts.

SOURCE: I live overseas, and brought this sewing machine

its not transformer or machine problem at all.all the connections are also proper.its the power issue the required power to the machine is not getting from the electric outlet.just call the local electrician and check out the power supply voltage from the electric outlet.and power required to the machine which will be listed on the machine.if more power is required he will connect the over power IC and get the machine work.if less power is required he will connect the RESISTOR and lower the power to the machine and make it work.

Hi. I believe your machine has a snap-on pressure foot. I've posted pictures of snap-on pressure feet at www.robbiesews.blogspot.com; just look for the 'pressure foot' tag or search the site for pressure feet and you shouldn't have any problem finding that post.

Anyway, there is an adapter (called an 'ankle') at the end of the 'long iron piece that lowers and raises the foot' (excellent description, BTW). The ankle attaches to that piece with a small thumb screw. With the ankle in place, you just lower the ankle onto the catch on the pressure foot.

You can also use regular low-shank feet on your machine. First, remove the ankle. The regular low-shank feet will attach to the raiser bar with that same thumb screw that holds the ankle in place.

You really should get a replacement manual for your machine. I found manuals for Simplicity sewing machines at http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/simplicity-sewing-machine-instruction-manuals.aspx.

Hope this helps!

Robbie

The foot pedal is not moving the machine but still makes a noise


A: You said, "The your foot pedal is not moving the machine, but still makes a noise". . . . I'd suggest checking if the sewing machine has a disengaged or broken drive belt, gear or linkage; if not the problem, may just be that the Hand-Wheel clutch mechanism (on the left center of the Hand Wheel) is in the Bobbin-Winding position. If so, it allows the machine to cycle, operating the Bobbin-Winder without the needle moving up or down. Older Brother machines, like many other brands, used a large flat shiny Screw Knob in the center of the Hand Wheel to engage or disengage the Bobbin-Winding feature, newer models use a plastic teeter-totter switch located in the same place, to do the same thing. Keep tinkering, you'll will resolve it.

The handwheel will turn manually but it will not move using the foot pedal. The sound it makes when I press on the foot pedal *sounds* like I am filling the bobbin.

Sorry the needle is not going down,


Needles will not go down for:
1. The lock on the hand wheel isn't locking. Try this
a. Loosen the lock like you're going to wind a bobbin.
b. Loosen screw that is on the side of the lock. (sometimes front)
c. Tighten the lock just like when you're going to sew.
d. Tighten the screw that is on the side of the lock.(sometimes front)
e. Turn hand wheel by hand. Did the needle rise and fall?
2. The drive belt isn't moving the shaft.
a. Remove the top of the sewing machine.
b. You will most likely have to remove the panel on the end where the hand wheel is.
c. Turn your hand wheel to see if the belt is moving the shaft or is it broken?
d. Replace if you need to. (look at wear). Loosen the motor.
e. Make your motor run (foot pedal) slowly. Tighten the belt by pushing on the motor while it is running. When the motor is placed at the right place the motor will be moving with very little drag. (This will need a listening ear)
f. At this point tighten motor and retest for the speed and drag.

I have a Janome 7933. The hand wheel turns but the needles don't. Looked in the manual but nothing about changing a belt or anything pertaining to this problem. How can I fix it?


Is the hand wheel properly engaged ? A hand wheel often is used when you wind bobbin. When you wind a bobbin, you want to disengage the clutch to prevent the needle going up/down.

On a lot of machines, either the entire hand wheel will pull out, or a smaller middle dial will pull out. You pull it out to wind the bobbin, push it back in to reengage the clutch so the needle goes up/down again.

So giving it a good push IN might solve this.

Needle is not moving


Of course I have to guess here--not seeing the machine, but it appears that your motor is working fine. That would leave two possibilities, I think. The first is a defective foot pedal. The second is, when you push the bobbin winder, it engages a clutch that diverts power from the needle shaft to the winder. It is possible that the clutch is stuck. To find out, disengage the bobbin winder and press the foot pedal, and see if the bobbin winder spindle is still spinning.

Gear selector repair Or something


When you switch off the machine, turn your hand wheel towards you, if the hand wheel can move freely but the needle bar does not, three possibilities on most machines - the upright gear has worn out or the timing gear is worn out or the the timing belt loose or broken.

Needle not moving. Checked power and tightened hand wheel.


Yes it should have 2. Now that you've moved the hand wheel... It's also out of time.

Take it in and have it cleaned, oiled, adjusted and the belts replaced.

The needle does not move when the foot pedal is used.


Make sure that you pushed the bobbin winder all the way to the left.

Simplicity model 1512. - quite sewing- the motor will run but needle will not move


I would say that the belt is broken or has came off the pulley. If you turn the hand wheel, does the needle move up and down. If it moves up and down, your problem is the belt. Remove necessary covers to access the motor pulley. Inspect, repair or replace as necessary.

I have everything in place to sew, the needle is in the fabric, I push the pedal, and it won't go and makes a horrible noise, the wheel turns about 1/2 a turn and then just stops.


see if it will work without the needle .. make sure the needle is not bent .. make sure you dont have a single (non zigzag) foot on the machine while its in zig zag mode .. the needle will hit the foot in this case .. if the machine will run without a needle and fails even with a straight needle then there could be a timing issue .. the top part of the sewing machine is syncronized with the bottom part via a shaft and some gears .. these are adjustable by a tech person .. everything has to happen at the right time if that relationship is changed thru slipage or wear then the machine may jam up .. also if some cloth, thread or lint is cought in the bottom unit it can cause the trouble .. will it turn by hand ?? if it turns by hand freely but wont turn with the motor ... and it makes a lot of noise .. you may have a loose belt from the motor .. if its a cog belt then it will make a shuddering noise as the drive gear slips over the cogs .. the belt tension is adjustable .. it just wants to be snug not tight, not loose ..
