My Singer 99 makes a light humming sound, but will not sew. The needle goes up and down only when I turn the wheel. Why won't the machine sew?

When was the last time you cleaned and oiled your machine? Mine was getting very slow to start stitching and I got out my instruction booklet and looked up how to do it. I couldn't believe all the dust, lint, and thread that was in the works. I cleaned it good and oiled it as the instructions said and it works much better now. One word of warning though. If you are going to use it right away, take a scrap of some thick absorbent material or even a paper towel (what I used) and sew across it several times to get all the oil off. I got some on my quilt block and had to wash it with dish soap. :(
