Very possible the belt has stretched so it is slipping. Usually, there is a way of exposing the pulley on the belt. The bolt holding the pulley can be loosened, then pulled to increase tension on the belt, then re-tighten the bolt. You may find more information by searching the information for your make/model machine.

Singer 3232 machine was sewing fine now motor runs but needle does not move up and down


Check if the machine is in the bobbin winding mode. To wind the bobbin, the bobbin spindle has to be moved to the right. (The hand wheel will not turn if the bobbin spindle is in this position.) If it is, move the spindle to the left.

If the hand wheel turns, then check for a thread jam. Remove the top thread and take out the bobbin case. Gently turn the hand wheel forward and backwards until the thread comes free of the hook in the bobbin race. Follow this by cleaning any lint from the bobbin race of the sewing machine.

The last possibility is that the belt has failed. This belt transfers the energy from the motor to the needle bar. One source of the belt is http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/motor-belt-singer-007158xxl5.aspx . You can find YouTube videos on changing the belt. There are other parts that transfer the forces form the belt to the needle bar. However, I suggest you find a good sewing machine mechanic if any of these parts fail.

The manual has good pictures of the bobbin spindle on page 11 (page 18 of the PDF). Singer has the manual on their support page: http://www.singerco.com/support/instruction-manuals . The direct link to the manual is http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/e06cb85928ace9753f1a7124f4a2df6168ffecf0.pdf .

I hope this helps.

My Singer Slant-o-Matic 500a sewing machine will not wind a bobbin. The winding pin barely started to turn, then no motion. Also, the wheel doesn't seem to tighten.


Your machine is an older mechanical machine, so have you cleaned and oiled it recently? Usually, older machines' oil will gunk up over time and stop things from moving like they should. Use only Fresh, good quality sewing machine oil. Do NOT oil belts, cams, rubber, or plastic parts. Slowly rotate the handwheel and place a couple drops of oil every place where metal rubs metal. To speed up the process, direct hot air from a handheld hairdryer into the internal metal parts.

It''s a SINGER sewing machine,,it's hand wheel run a slower and the next moment when i tried to sew a dress for me i found out dat it was'nt working well..i mean the hand wheel is stiff and not work but...


Has the clutch been disengaged to wind the bobbin? Pulling straight out on the handwheel on some machines will stop the needle from moving so that a bobbin can be attached and wound. If this is the case you simply push it straight back in. Also, on a computerized or electronic machine if the bobbin winding post is pushed right, the clutch will disengage. --Push it all the way left when you are done winding the bobbin to re-engage the clutch. If the problem is internal, like a slipped belt, you will need to have someone open up the machine to repair it. Hope you get it going again!

The hand wheel just stays put while the inside of the machine seems to be moving, like something is slipping.


Move the bobbin winder to LEFT. Sounds to me like you didn't re-set after winding a bobbin.
Hope this helps!

The machine won't sew. the motor runs, but the stitches won't form. I have put the clutch in


If the needle is not going up and down the belt may be slipping or even come off, disengage the stop motion and see if the balance wheel turns as if to wind a bobbin, if it does then something must be jammed in the bobbin case area.

Threading bobbin on singer stylist 522


To wind a bobbin put the cotton reel on the top pin, take the thread to the left and round the little wheel and back to the bobbin that should be on the winder, wind the thread round a few times to take a grip, release the stop motion in the balance wheel, turn the winder button so the winder moves to the balance wheel and press on the foot control slowly.
When you put the bobbin in the bobbin case make sure it turns anti clockwise.

Singer 626 Not sewing


First, give Mom all your Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.
Then, be sure the bobbin-winding function is not still engaged. Check it again, since on some machines, the mechanism has to be backed off until you hear a click, or until a light turns off. If that's done, check the tension on your top thread, since that's easier, then on your bobbin thread.
If the bobbin didn't get wound evenly (Like if you're hurrying) that will mess up its ability to let the thread flow out, so see if the thread on the bobbin looks as smooth as a new spool of thread.
I hope you got your costume together & had fun aside for that frustration. :^)

Machine No. K1831(256) No.28 how do you set up the stop motion wheel to wind bobbins. It either winds bobbins whilst sewing or just free wheels. I think there must be a way of adjusting this action....
