Hmmm

I would be very cautious of this if 2nd hand and actually NEEDS a timing belt..... they are available, but they do not break...

My instinct says it is likely to be a Timing issue where the Hook to Needle position has gone off

This is a straightforward repair and best done by a Service Tech... not a home fix (they will also tune it allup for you and you will have a good to go machine)

Have you seen the machine to check the mechanism... does all turn OK, just not picking up stitches ?

If yes, then it is Timing

Please be aware that not all things can be resolved at home or in the way we might hope, some may need closer inspection and intervention, others are simply not feasible or advised, so please do not shoot the messenger, unfortunately I cannot train you to be a Technician in a few dozen words via an online chat room.
