    Do you have a manual for the machine? They should be available on line. The manual will show where to oil and where to grease. After 4 years of storage it should be cleaned up and oiled and greased.

    Good luck

    It worked for about 6 inches and it started all over again. At wits end. Yes I have the manuel that came with the machine and have oiled and greased it with in an inch of it's life.

    I know you've already tried changing the needle, but I've had mine act like this when I accidentally got the needle in wrong. 15-91 NFL (needle flat left). I had to write that down and put it with my machine, since I have so many different machines that it is hard to remember. You can also get skipped stitches if the needle isn't the right size for the fabric you are sewing.

    Also make sure the flat side of the needle is pointing "away" from the machine. Ask me how I know...
