Racing Machine!

Recommended Posts

If my machine is racing about every 10 minutes do I need to just turn it off  until I can talk to Amy or will it hurt it to keep quilting?  I don't want break the whole thing!  Linda, I don't think it is the #8 screw!

My machine did that and I used it for a bit but I did have to replace a board on it.  I was quite proud as I did the entire thing myself--just followed instructions.  My board ended up being defective and Amy (I believe--it happened during the last royal wedding so it was a couple of years ago) told me not to use it until I got things changed out.  You never know when it will start racing again, wouldn't want to make a hole in a quilt.

Good luck

Got an email today and followed the instructions.  I disemboweled the arm and tweaked a cam-like thing and them put it all back together.  It is working but I won't know if it is racing until I used it for a spell.  I felt rather smart after following those instructions all by myself.  And....when I was done I have all the right # of pieces!  I'll update you guys tomorrow!

Sylvia, would you be willing to send me a copy of that document?  Just in case I don't already have it in the electronic "library"...

Thanks!

Yes, Lyn, it was a delicate accomplishment!  It could have blinded Freedom for life!  It was after all, the optical I was working on!
