Hi - I have a Montgomery Ward Model UHT J1267 sewing machine.  I can't get the
needle to go up and down.  It partially moves, but won't come up out of the
bobbin area.   Also, I don't have a manual to refer to.  Any advice to fix the
problem would be greatly appreciated.

My best guess is the machine is either frozen from lack of lubrication or from  
the lubricants thickening, and in either case will need a really good cleaning
and re-lubing.

Probably the best place I can send you if you want to DIY is the

Is the bobbin case locked in properly?

Thank you for the response.  You are absolutely correct.  I finally figured out
that the bobbin case was inserted improperly.

Thank you.
