M&M wheels

Recommended Posts

Hello

How often do you have to change the M & m wheels? I have an 18 month Millie. I have recently turned the wheels around, but again, they feel the "bumps", I guess I have to change the wheels. I thought they lasted longer. Are you the same? Thanks

I have been using the same MnM wheels for years...I think at least 6 maybe 7 years, and mine are still OK.

Have you called the service team to see if they can help you out? It sounds more like a level issue or perhaps something caught around the wheels that are causing the problem.

Call APQS, I'm sure they can help solve the problem for you.

Have you cleaned your wheels and rails? It is amazing how much oxidation collects and makes "bumps". I use a soft cloth with plain water and mine are 6 years old.

Wow, I would get with APQS for sure. I quilt just for me so my machine might get used once a week for several hours. I would be interested to know what they say.

Leida, How are you cleaning the wheels?  Oxidation can build up on them and a rag with alcohol and some good rubbing will usually clean any oxidation off and you can be gliding along bump free in no time.

Actually APQS Service recommends a little alcohol to remove the oxidation. You will not hurt the M&M wheels and you will feel the difference after the wheels are thoroughly cleaned.

Get right in the groove in the wheel where it glides along the carriage. I poke the edge of my cloth in that groove and move the carriage front to back. As the cloth gets the black oxidation on it, find a clean spot that has the alcohol on it and continue with each wheel until your cloth remains clean. You don't need to clean the wheels this thoroughly daily but once a week will keep your wheels running like new.
