Sewing Machine Needle Won't Move Using Pedal?

I have a Singer sewing machine. I have not had it a year yet. When I went to use my machine today my needle will move using the handle to move it up and down, but when I press on the pedal it makes the noise, but the needle stays still. The bobbin pin spins like normal when I use pedal still. I have taken the cotton off and reloaded it and there was no change.

Could it be that you've inadvertently engaged the function that keeps the needle from moving up and down while you wind the bobbin? My machine has a "wheel" on the right hand side that has a smaller wheel set into it - to disengage the stitch function I turn the inner wheel towards me while holding the outer wheel, reverse turn the other way to tighten it and allow needle to more again. Found this online: www.searspartsdirect.com/.../smac1011147

Good luck! Hope it's an easy fix!

I have had isues like this that when you press the pedal the machine just makes noise and won't move. Most of the time you just need to turn the wheel to get it going again. If this is not helping it could be an issue with the belt that moves the needle up and down.

You may need to take the cover off the back of the machine and check out the cables and belts.

Make sure that your needle is secure in place . Also check bobbin housing for loose threads, fabric, and dust , that collect over time that gets jammed inside that prevents good function. Last thing, make sure that your bobbin threading button is disengaged.
