Wait for it to finish?

Make sure it's topped up so you don't have any headspace, and leave it be. I don't usually rack until my wine is at 1.020. If it still hasn't moved in a week or so, then maybe you'll need to pitch more yeast.

the sg hasn't moved in a few days ( 3) the air lock is dead still. OK I will let it set a few days and check it again. Thanks again for the help.
