I recently received a Singer 500a as a gift; it had spent a while sitting unused in a basement. I took it to the repair shop and had it looked over and serviced. It was working very well for a couple of days and then stopped all of a sudden. When I press the pedal, I can hear the motor going, but the needle doesn't move. I tried replacing the bobbin, but that didn't help. If I manually move the wheel, then the needle goes up and down, but otherwise, nothing.

Any thoughts/insights?

Is your hand wheel (the part that you loosen up to wind the bobbin) completely tight?  That's what it sounds like to me.Theresa

The hand wheel has two parts.  The lighter colored part needs to be tightened (clockwise) while you hold the darker colored part.  Refer to page 11 of your manual.
