Is it due to a tangle ?
Easy way is to release the needle from the clamp to isolate the needleplate area

If you have fabric jammed, it is a slow and gentle cutting of threads to access the tangle

Remove needleplate, clean up the mess and you should be good to go

Let me know how you get on, and please get back to me if you have any other questions or concerns and I will try help you more.

It may take more than one exchange to get a fix, so please work with me, you are my eyes and ears here

If you feel that I have helped to answer your questions please remember to rate my performance positively before you leave so that we can close the file as it is the only acknowledgement we receive for our time and experience.
