My Sewing Machine Stopped Working

My Singer sewing machine was sewing just fine, when out of the blue, it seized or froze and it won't sew a bit now. What happened? I've done all the "checks" for needles, proper threading, cleaning, etc. Now what?

Something may have broken on the inside.

The same thing happened to my Singer. I took it in to the repair shop and they told me the clutch had slipped. It was a pretty quick fix and was reasonably priced.

When that happened on your Singer, did you hear a noise that sounded like something came loose and fell?

That is what happened with mine. I checked and couldn't see anything wrong, but I really didn't know what I was looking for! I'm hoping to have it repaired soon. We don't have a local repair shop and I don't know of anyone who repairs them, so we have to drive a distance to take it in. Thanks! Did they happen to tell you what might cause the clutch to slip? I'm wondering if I did something to cause it.

@deebomb-I do think something may have broken on the inside. Since I know next to nothing about this issue; I have to trust someone who does to get it in working order again. I did hear an odd rattling, clink before it stopped working correctly.
