I don't know what to do with my machine. It won't sew. Everytime I try to sew something it immediately siezes up and won't move. The tread doesn't seem to be moving the fabric and the thread knots up under the bobbin holder somehow. Any ideas what is wrong?

Hello Laramort,
Check the FEED DOG to be sure they are activated, hope this helps.

If your problem is not feeding. Be sure to take your face plate of and remove your bobbincase and see if you have lint buildup. Most of the time we do not realize how much lint will build up under the feed dogs.

The problem is mis-threading the top. after you clean out the bobbin case rethread the top. Be SURE the presser foot is up and you get the thread in the take up lever. All machines need to be threaded this way.
