Sewing Machine Jammed

My single needle machine stop working; it jammed. The motor hums, but it seems to be locked.

I would recommend you do what you can at home before taking it into a shop, Charlene. For instance, very carefully remove all fabric and thread from the sewing area, turn the wheel by hand to raise the needle. If you can get the needle up, check to see if it's broken. Remove the bobbin case and all the thread in that area as well (it's often the source of trouble). Unscrew the plate beneath the sewing area and check for a build-up of lint. Use a small but stiff brush to remove all that. Remove the sewing maching needle and push the sewing foot to see if your trouble shooting has done the trick. Check your machine's manual for any additional advice, check online and if no additional ideas are forthcoming, find your local dealership or other reputable repair shop. Good luck!

Rose Anne has given you some great suggestions for getting your machine back to sewing - about the only thing I can add is to check to be sure you've not accidentally left it in bobbin winding mode.
