Hi there,

Sorry to hear you are having these difficulties.

First, check that the needle is fitted correctly and is not bent, and check for any buildup of lint that may be jamming the mechanism.

If all seems good then the machine likely has a fault and should be returned for servicing rather than invalidating the warranty by attempting a repair yourself.
