  1. you already tried a different thread, right? I had a cone of Fantastico that was catching at the bottom every once in a while. I wound it onto bobbins until I got past that part.
  2. I have a studio at the Hot Shops in Omaha on the second floor, but next month I'm moving up to the third floor. The freight elevator is 10'x8', so I think I can get the rails in the elevator if I dismantle the machne some. When I moved here, Dave Jones (Mr. Deloa) moved the whole thing for me and set it up. So, I've never really taken the whole thing apart. any hints on what to be careful about? I plan to take the machine off the frame, and then take the rails and table off.
  3. your machine might have come with two allen wrenches. The smaller one should be the one that works with your brake lever.
  4. The problem was a bad circuit board. APQS sent the replacement board, I installed it following the detailed directions they sent, solved the problem.
  5. I played with the #8 switch, and slowed it down so much that it was hardly going up and down, but it still wasn't stopping. SO, I called Amy. Amy had me stand in front of the machine and tell her which lights were activating and by that, she could tell I need a new small circuit board. It's Friday and they are sending it priority mail, so I'll probably have it Tuesday. In the meantime, I can keep quilting, I just have to hit the needle up button twice if I want to dip the needle. (the needle down sensor isn't sensing). I was thinking about what I need the needle down for. It isn't just getting it to stop in the needle down position, it's getting the needle to stay in the quilt when I roll it, or when I want to put the side clips on. In any case, I'm delighted that they moved the adjusting screw to the back of the machine, low, so I don't have to crack the top open and stand on a stool. I do need a lighted magnifying glass though. That's very helpful.
  6. I have a new White Millie. I haven't had a chance to use it much, only a few hours. This just started today: when I hit the button (on any of the four handles), the needle keeps stitching. Very slowly, but it's not doing the half stitch. I can get the needle down light to go on if I press the needle down button and then the other side of the rocker to stitch. BUT if I do that, the machine won't stop when I press down on the other side of the rocker. Is this a problem with the #8 screw needing adjustment? And if so, is it still on top of the machine? I'm reading about a plug on the back side, I can't figure out if that is relevant to me.
