Oops! I forgot what to do!

Recommended Posts

I think I need to get to know my #8 screw on a personal basis.  My machine has been running away from me while in stitch reg. mode.  The encoder "looks" just fine.  I had no idea one needle could jump up and down so fast!  So far haven't blown any fuse except my own.  Where is that pesty screw and will it stop this train wreck?

If it's racing during SR mode, it's probably not the needle positioner that needs help but give it a try first and cross your fingers. Maybe you need a board replaced or your encoder is possessed.


Amy has a video on the home page! Pull up the list of videos and click on the "fluorescent lights/needle positioner" one. Advance to about 2:30 to skip the first part. Remember to warm up the machine and then unplug it before you adjust. Good luck and I hope it's an easy fix.  :)
