The hand wheel itself turns but the inner knob is immoveable inside it, so won't turn to be loosened, so I can't wind a bobbin. Also the inner knob doesn't deptess so I can't reverse stitch. I think the machine is 30 to 40 yrs old.
Thanks Michael, that's really helpful. I will try to find a sewing machine repair shop near me. They are fewer and further between than they used to be! But at least I know now what the best course of action is.
Thanks again, Lindy
You have a great day too. I went back (somehow: sorry just getting to understand how this site works) and rated you excellent. I don't want to do it again now because it says I'll have to pay twice. I'm sure you'll let me know if the payment hasn't registered at your end.
