1970 Dressmaker Sewing Machine Seized Up?

I bought a 1970 Dressmaker sewing machine, plugged it in and it worked fine. I thought I had better oil and clean it since I wasn't sure how long its been since its last cleaning. So everything is fine and then bam! it seized. What do I check to un-seize it? Thank you.

You probably have a broken gear. Your machine will need servicing. It is almost 40 years old.

  1. First off you'll need to download the manual for this machine.
  2. You can find the PDF file here: awsebook.org/dressmaker~sewing~machine~manuals...
  3. Now that you have the manual you can start to take the machine apart to check the inside.
  4. You want to make sure the belt is file.
  5. Check to see if there is anything blocking the needle from moving up and down.
  6. You can turn the wheel and see if there is a reason it is blocked.
  7. You'll also need to check the bobbin area and make sure that there isn't antying blocking this area.
  8. If you can't find anything wrong or blocking this then you could have a jammed gear in your motor.

  10. In this case there isn't a lot for you to do except take it in for repair.
