    run issues

    Problem is solved!!!! One of the cords that attaches under the back handle had come off. Once it was plugged back in I was back quilting. This forum is such a great help. Have a great quilting day. Berny

    Thanks Dave!! Checked all the cords and found that one cord that is under one of the back handles was just hanging there. Once it was plugged in I was back quilting. Thank-you so much, Berny

    sewing motor

    This still has to do with the "run issues" topic. Last night I noticed that on my CQ screen the sewing motor tab was OFF. I was able to click on it and turn it ON but when I tried to sew the head would just move and the sewing motor screen would go back to OFF. Could this be the problem??? If so how do I get it to stay on?? Berny

    run issues

    Hi I'm not sure what switch turns the needle off? Is it one of the two between the red button to stop the machine? I have checked those two and they are both on. Berny

    run issues

    I quilted row 1 perfectly. At the end of the row I pressed QG to send it back to starting position. In the middle of the row it seemed like it was stuck and was making noises. I pressed the red stop button. When it stopped I was able to send it back to where the row had started. I pressed I to get it to move down for the next row and then R to start the next row. It will start moving but the needle doesn't sew. The stitches/ inch are on. I cannot figure out why it will not sew. If anyone has any suggestions, they would be greatly appreciated. I was hoping to have this queen sized quilt finished by tomorrow. Thanks, Berny
  6. Thanks for the info. I will definitely try the wool batting and probably a 80/20 to see how I like the difference before I stock up. Berny
  7. I recently received a promotion for new batting from my supplier. Being that I have never used these I would appreciate some feedback. Up until now, I have always used Hobbs batting. The supplier carries Legacy 80/20 and cotton. Also I was looking into trying some wool battings. Which is better the 100% wool or the 65% wool and 35% poly?? How do Legacy products compare to Hobbs? Thanks and have a great quilting day. Berny
  8. I have a Japanese quilt to quilt. The client would like a pattern to suit the quilt. Any ideas as to some great design that would suit this quilt. Smiles
  9. Yes, I took out the bobbin. I've tried again to wiggle it but still no luck. Berny
  10. Hi Sue,I tried wiggling it back & forth but nothing seemed to budge. Yes, I would bet that the end of the needle could be stuck in the hook assembly as I looked for it on the floor but couldn't find it. Is there anything else that I can try? Thanks Berny
  11. I found where the fuse goes and the machine turned on but there was this loud noise. I checked to see if the broken part of the needle was still in the machine but could not see anything. You cannot get the fly wheel to budge. I quickly turned everything off. (The second light on the right hand side is on.) I hope that I didn't do anything major as I just got my machine back from having a tune-up. Berny
  12. I was merrily quilting when the needle fell out and broke in the machine. I tried to abort the quilting but then the machine turned off. Now it won't turn on. I think I might have blown a fuse. I know where the fuse is stored but don't know where it goes??? Is it a blown fuse that turned the machine off or is it something else?? I desperately need help as I was hoping to finish this quilt today. Thanks Berny

    Thanks for your suggestions. I did turn down the black dial and the stitch length to 9. The stitch length was to big so I bumped it up a bit. The machine was running so slowly so I ended up turning the black dial back up and it is still running slowly. I'm using a King Tut on the top and it is not laying flat. It's almost like there is to much thread for the space. I've turned up the tension dial and its not making much difference. This quilt is now overdue and all I do is pick it out. I'm so frustrated . I need help. Thanks! I always know that on this site there is someone with a magic answer. Berny

    new download

    I just downloaded the new compuquilter program.( I need to get this quilt down by tomorrow so I am in panic mode.) I am using a pattern that I have used many times. When the machine began quilting it was sewing faster than usual with much smaller stitches than what I had put the stitch length on. I stopped the machine, ripped it out, then slowed down the machine speed from 1.26 to 1.06 and increased the stitch length. That didn't make any difference. What am I doing wrong??? Any suggestions? Thanks Berny
  15. I loosened my bobbin tension and adjusted the top tension. The machine was stitching beautifully. It really helped to reduce the speed of the machine. It did break twice on the second row and once on the last row- which was a major improvement. The tree skirt is now quilted and all I have to do now is weave all those ends in. Yikes!!! Thank-you so much for all your suggestions. Berny
