    Computer errors

    Hi Peggy. Zeke here. Check your red button on the little black box on top of your machine. If canfeel a small click while depressing it, then most likely it has broken. It should have a smooth depression. You also might to take the top off the machine and see if all the wires are secure and not loss or not connected.

    CQ

    Well, thought I was going to have to scrap my CQ last week. Finally had time to get it all set up and when I turned it on, nothing. Monitor went right to power down mode and no CQ. Tried everything I could think of. Even tried another computer. Still nothing. Then I tried a laptop and sha- bang. Shut it down and rebooked up the CQ. Success, back in business. Now I have to re-train myself on the system. It's been a while since I've used the CQ. I've been getting withdrawals as of late and now I'm ready to go again. Now I'm going to have to find a computer whiz to make me a new tower as a back up. Zeke.
  3. Well hey there batty. How ya doing. Zeke here. What are you asking for them?

    Ultimate II as a sitdown with foot pedal?

    Hi Sandy. I don't know anyone that has converted an UII to a sit down machine, but I believe it could be done. All you'd have to do is replace the speed control with a foot pedal and remove the axles and place the machine in a custom table. Zeke By the way, you should really check your message before you post it.
  5. Really! Zeke.
  6. I would have a year ago. I would have been about 2 and half hours away. Now I'm across the country. Zeke.
  7. That's crazy. That means that your hook got shoved forward and bent the retaining finger. You might want to check the play of your hook on its horizontal axis. You may have a problem with your gears in the gear box. Breaking the needle shouldn't bend the hook retaining finger, because the needle is on the other side of the hook housing. Zeke.

    needle position

    First off. Check and see if the bobbin is not bent and see if the back lash spring is still doing its job. A lot of times if the bobbin is bent it will get hit by the needle and cause that issue. Zeke.
  9. I gave up the stuff too. Just too unpredictable. Zeke.

    Help with Millie/ compuquilter

    If it's the back sensor then it should point towards the back. The front should point towards the front. Zeke. In some cases the axles are placed differently then other machines. Mine are more towards the middle of the machine which allows me to do a 17 1/2" panto. I also have a square tubing table which is a little more forgiving then the round. The leveling bar is a tab bit adjustable where the round tuning table is not and I can also adjust the belly bars.

    Help with Millie/ compuquilter

    Hey Deb. It should be connected to the front axle on both sides. I think you're talking about the one on the rear correct? I don't have mine set up right now or I would send you a picture. I'll see what I can do. Zeke.
  12. Be careful with disassembling the system. Make sure you have a big enough box to put all 4 legs in along with the hydraulic lines. DO NOT PINCH THE HYDRAULIC LINES. It goes back together the same way you will take it apart. Just make sure you have some zip ties to support the power unit under the table. Have fun. Zeke.
  13. Check your spool of thread and the tensioner check spring. I bet there is something amiss there. Zeke. Also check for lint between the tensioner disc's.
  14. Wow. This is a steal if I ever saw one. I'm surprised that it hasn't already sold. Zeke.

    You didn't mention the thread guides. Check the one above your needle for a groove. You also might try putting a scrap of batting above the cone of thread in the first thread guide. Zeke.
