Default Brother 9 needle knife not working

Good day, My brother 9 needle embroidery machine(20years old) has developed a problem. The knife mechanism will not cut the thread. I removed the needle plate? and pressed the knife icon on the machine but there is no movement of any part. There is no thread cuttings nor dust nor anything I can see that could cause an obstruction. Any help will be greatly appreciated.Oh and one more thing, whenever there's a thread break I get a "needle stop position" error and have to manually align the marks on the pulley wheel with that on the machine body.
Can't find a rep out here in Jamaica.

Which model do you have? I can look up the components that fire the trimmer. BTW-any chance you could have accidentally turned off the trimmer?

So I see no one here uses or fixes a 20 year old embroidery machine.
Guess it's time to go go shopping in CHINA.

Sorry but this is as quick as I can get back in front of computer in office. Most of my time is on the road. I don't have the manual for your specific model but I have the one for the BAS416A and BES1210AC.
These models have a button on the control panel that says thread sensor. It is through this button that the trimmer can be turned on and off.

Thanks for responding. My machine is the BES-916AC which is similar to the BES-1216AC. I checked the trimmer button and it is showing a 'Valid' setting. I changed it to 'invalid' but it did not make a difference.
The cutter is still not moving (can't move it by hand either).
Thanks again for your suggestion.
