Thanks Lucy, Cagey and Jim. It is a 2008 Millie; I am it's second owner. I have been stitching happily with it since I acquired it back in May. I have been doing a lot of detail and template work and think all the stops and starts may have caught up with the motor. Yes, Jim I thought I would check the motor brush, knowing that will be something the APQS Techs will want me to check . From what I read in the owners manual there is only one fuse and I changed that.
I appreciate the input and hopefully by tomorrow this time a will have a solution in place.
