Hi there,This can happen if the mechanism has jammed due to a buildup of lint, or if a thread has become caught and entangled around the mechanism.The machine will need to be serviced by disassembling it and cleaning around the mechanism to remove whatever is blocking it, or fixing any broken parts that you find.If you are not familiar with the servicing of this machine, let me know your zip code and I can recommend a repairer in your area.
