I cleaned my machine and changed to a 90 needle and now my machine won't do a straight stitch. I was sewing using a straight stitch before this happened. I've tried turning off the machine, and it's been off since Sunday. I tried it again this evening, and it still is not working.

Does the foot and needle go up and down like normal or is the machine completely blocked?
If the machine does move try and check the needle to see if you have placed it in the right way or try another needle again as this one might be faulty even if new.

Thank you! I decided to take the thread and needle out again and start over again. I took the bobbin case out and turned the fly wheel and kept looking underneath the hook race while turning it back and forth. I found some fuzz and removed it. I kept turning the fly wheel and looking at the hook race and noticed hairs stuck underneath from the brush I had been using to clean my machine. After I removed those along with the fuzz, I tried sewing again, and it works! Such a good feeling.

Was in a shop today and they take a 2" piece of pipe cleaner , bend in half and insert it into the end of o coffee straw. She says it makes the best bobbin area cleaner and prevents brush bristles from getting "lost" in our machines! I am going to make them up for our guild for our February meeting!
Glad you were able to figure out the issue!
