needle up/down and grinding noise

Recommended Posts

My 2007 Millie has started making  a rough sound as it stitches and the needle up/down function won't stabilize.  I talked to tech support at APQS last week and we changed the brushes and tried to adjust the up/down function and thought we had it fixed. They couldn't hear the rough sound, but I know my baby and it's definitely weird.  There's no thread caught anywhere.  So this week it is again making the rough sound as I stitch and I can't seem to get the up/down to quit stitching. It keeps changing.  What could this be?  (mother board?, gear box?, little gold screw messed up?)

Just a thought, since you had to lift up the cover to get to the #8 screw - if you removed any of the screws on the side and forgot to put the white plastic spacer back when you replaced it, it makes a grinding noise from the vibration of the cover.  I did this and it took me forever to figure out where that new noise was coming from.
