Singer Stylist Sewing Machine Timing Gear Seized

I have an old Singer Stylist 413. I was sewing a fleece blanket, heavy weight, and heard a loud squeaky noise, After oiling it, the sound was better. While sewing, the hook timing gear that the bobbin case fits into stopped turning. I tried moving it manually and it is super tight. It basically seized up. The hand wheel turns and the needle goes up and down, the timing gear just isn't turning. Any thoughts?

A piece of material or some threads may be stuck in the bottom of the machine. I would check for this first.

These were nice machines that did a great job with "just sewing".
Here is a comment from one user:
It does have one weakness and that is vertical shaft top gear. It's plastic and they have a tendency to break. I've had two of these machines, and both of them broke that gear. Considering they are over 40 years old, it's not really that surprising.


The gears can be had and they are not terribly expensive or hard to replace.

I have found a link that may offer some help but you may have to read most of the questions and answers to find anything useful (some answers are elaborate):

Here is a link to a manual in case you do not have one (free):

I have found that Singer company is very good about helping with problems with any of their machines. Here is link where you can contact Singer either by telephone or email:
