Vibration when quilting

Recommended Posts

I have a one year old lenni that vibrates when running, I always thought it was because it needed broke in, but not getting better. The vibration is worse when in stitch regulated mode, so bad that I can't use a panto as the vibration makes it hard to follow. I've cleaned rails, kept oiled, the table is level. It's on a 10 foot bliss table. Any suggestions on how to get the machine not to vibrate would be greatly appreciated, as getting frustrated.... Thanks so much,

I get more black 'crud' built on on the front wheel on this one side, keep cleaning it with a soft cloth. Not much build up on the other side at all. Don't know if that is an indication of something out of whack.

Hi there - 

 

I just cut this from another post I wrote a little bit ago... maybe it'll help you.

My new Lenni arrived a few weeks ago and I'm just now getting to be able to practice (mostly) daily for an hour or so.  I noticed the other day after several hours of practice, that there was a harmonic vibrating sound coming from the top of the back of the machine - the 'hood' is loose around the top part of the machine in the back - screwed on.  After searching the forums I found it was not unique and after reading some of the 'fixes' people had - I used a few small felt pad circles (the kind that go on the bottom of chair legs to slide/protect) tucked in at the edges and VOILA - no more sound/vibration!

My metal cover on the top/ back vibrated very loudly and shook the machine.  I called APQS and they sent me several pads to place on the metal.  It worked great.  They were basically just the rubber/foam pads you see at the store for chairs or furniture (long rectangular size).  I did need to do a little stretching here and there on the metal so it was no longer rattling.  It took a few minutes to fine tune the fit but now it is great.  A huge change in the noise and vibration levels.  

 

I also have a bit more black build up on the right side of the carriage (when looking from the front side).  It appears these wheels may be rubbing more??  Would love to hear anyone's advice or comments regarding this.
