You might also try turning the machine off and ' totally unplug' from the electric current, about 5 minutes this will allow the mother board to reset itself and possible correct the problem. Good Luck. :-)

You may have a thread stuck in your wheel. If turning it off and leaving it for a while and then turning it back on again does not work... I would check your wheel for thread

Hi Arlene, when I have had problems with my machine locking up I have turned it off at the mains and left it for a short while before turning on again. Good Luck and hope its easy to sort out
