Don't tighten any belts -- I'm not sure this machine has any, anyhow. You've probably got the bobbin winder engaged, so read the manual to tell you how to switch it off again, or call Singer's help line (http://www.singerco.com -- "contact us" tab)

I believe on this machine the bobbin winder is disengaged by moving the bobbin winding pin to the left, but check the manual.

    The motor runs the machine by a rubber belt, try tightening the belt...

    Unless you don't want to cough up money for it to be fixed from an expert I don't have advice. Though there may be dust or something stuck in there, but you say it doesn't sound jammed, most likely it is.

    I'm trying to use my Singer Prelude but the needle wont move!
    I'm not an expert at sewing my any means btw*
    But I have it threaded right and everything is plugged in but whenever I press down on the pedal I can hear the motor moving and it doesn't sound like its jammed (and I know what a jam sounds like) but still..no movement. I can turn the big knob to make the needle move though...
    I dont know what to do! Help? I need to get my Renaissance Faire costume done haha.

    Thanks.
