  1. The shorter one will just unplug from the end of the laser module and then you can plug the longer cord into the laser and the other end into the machine.
  2. When turning the lever on top, you will need to hold the bottom with an Allan wrench. The top is spinning but so is the bottom bolt thus not tightening up.
  3. Hi Lindy, Yes, this is a non-stitch regulated machine. There is a sticker down on the back of the throat that has a number on it. That is the serial number and we can tell you the year it was manufactured by that number. Also as the others said about the light, if turning the switch doesn't work, there is a fluorescent starter behind that front cover that might be bad. Don't hesitate to call Service and the girls can help if needed.
  4. This machine was manufactured in 1993.
  5. Hi Pamela, Jenny who finalizes the orders is home sick today. I am sure she will be able to get you all handled tomorrow.
  6. Safe travels Zeke! Look us up if we are out there working.
  7. No stitch regulator and I am not sure of the needle positioned, you might have to ask the customer on that.
  8. I am listing this for a customer Gaile Farmer from Wind Ridge, PA. This machine was re certified by APQS and sold to Gaile with a new 12' frame that is all bliss ready 3 years ago, so bliss can be added to this frame for $1,000. Customer needs to sell right away as she has to move and can't take machine with her. Has been used very little by customer. She is asking $3,000 or best offer. She does not have internet so please do not respond here. Her phone number is 724-428-3138 please call for questions.
  9. HI Debs, Try putting something under each foot of the leg of the machine as a buffer. The idea is we are taking any residual vibration that might be in the machine itself and dissipating it through the table frame. So if you are on concrete the vibration will reverberate right back at you. Either a piece of foam rubber or a carpet remnant under the 4 corners of the legs with buffer that vibration.
  10. Do you have the cream white buttons for the on/off on this U-I?
  11. Betsy, Yes, I did mean the one in the first photo, but the pot in the second photo is fine too! You just need to connect that wire from the machine to somewhere on that carriage to get the proper grounding.
  12. Betsy, The other end of that black grounding wire attaches to one of the black Allen head screws that hold the rear axle on to the carriage underneath. That will ground the carriage to the machine and should help!
  13. Go to the hardware store and get some "blue" loctite, this is a liquid that you can put on the screw threads and when it dries it will hold the screw in place and won't let it loosen. That should do the trick.
  14. The U-II also has a spring loaded presser foot not a hopping foot. So if you don't have the foot low enough to maintain contact with your fabric that will also give you skipped stitches because the foot is not holding the fabric to complete the stitch.
  15. According to the photos on Ebay it is an U-I. Can't quite see it on the name plate, but I can tell by the motor that is on that machine as I use to wire those back in the day.

    Alarm!

    Hi Anne, All of that information is in the maintenance manual that you should have gotten from me when you & your husband took that class from me at Claudia's in Germany.
  17. Hope you stop by the APQS booth and say hi Chris!
  18. Make sure everything connected it tight. If there is any play in any piece that the fence is attached to that will not let you do perfect circles. Hope this will help!
  19. Check that little junction board that is stuck to that rear handle where you plug into. We have had the pins go through the sticky tape and then short out against the handle. You can take it off and add some more double stick tape and then attach it back to the handle and see if that does the trick.
  20. Hi Jane, you can remove the mushroom head off of the rear corresponding handle and plug that one into the front and see if it will work to get you going. It might be a bad switch which Amy can send you a new mushroom head if needed. Good luck!
  21. Go to the hardware store and get some "blue" loctite and put a dab on the threads of that screw where you turn the knob to tighten. Loctite is a liquid and when it dries it will gum up the threads so they will stay put and not loosen.
  22. Glad Roland got it all up and running! And glad you came through your surgery ok!!
