Maybe the belt linking the wheel to the motor has snapped?
Thank you for your suggestion, Gillian.
I'll need an expert to look at that.
There is a sewing machine place on Green Lanes that can take a look. Does repairs and services. Worth a try.
Chris Pantelli. 409 Green Lanes.
Thank you, Denise.
I will see if they are still open.
Is it a drop in bobbin or front loader? Take the bobbin section out, clean and remove any threads and try again.
Pantelli will charge a fortune to fix Try yourself first.
Thank you for your reply Bamako.
It is nothing to do with the bobbin. I have checked that.
Actually, I have found Pantelli's helpful and generous in the past, but unfortunately they do not have the staff to deal with 'domestics' at the moment.
