Why won’t my sewing machine needle go up and down?
A disengaged clutch, broken drive belt or internal drive gear failure can prevent the needle from moving. … If the needle won’t move with the clutch engaged, unplug the sewing machine and check the drive belt. Replace the drive belt if it’s broken.
Which way do you turn the handwheel on a sewing machine?
