Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is***** will do my best to provide the right answer to your sewing machine question.

Ask Your Own Small Appliance Question

I have one recommendation for the problem, after asking several questions (that, if you answer them by Reply To Expert, might help me make further suggestions that could help with the problem also):

- How old is your machine?

- what model is it, please?

- what is your local zip code (in case I must recommend that it be taken to a service shop, so that I can list service shops in your local region) ?

I recommend first of all, that you apply lubrication to the machine, as recommended in the manual. And that after this is applied, you let the machine sit for some time, unused ... at least several hours, if not overnight.

That may loosen up the works, and hopefully help with the slow speed. (Do not run it for long at a no-better-than-slow speed - if the mechanism really does have resistance, the motor could burn out its windings and need replacing, if run for too long.)

Hey Russell, I’m good I fixed it —- I re-adjusted all the settings and changed the needle size and it worked !!! It runs like a rocket now!!

Excellent! I'm glad to hear that it works again.
