The thread may have become tangled as a result of incorrect upper threading. Make sure that the machine is correctly threaded. Perform trial sewing with normal fabric. Incorrect sewing may be the result of incorrect upper threading or sewing thin fabrics.
How do you fix a sewing machine that won’t move?
Engage the hand wheel clutch if you have it disengaged for bobbin winding. 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. If the drive belt is okay, an internal drive gear failure is likely preventing the needle from moving.

What part of the sewing machine needs to be changed when the fabric is jamming?
Next, remove all the jammed thread; this may require removing the bobbin, the throat plate, and any other parts to release any jammed threads and get the machine sewing again.
Why is my handwheel stuck?
If you’ve been sewing fast for a long time, your handwheel might be stuck because your machine is too hot. Unplug your sewing machine and wait an hour or more before trying to sew again.
