millie stops sewing randomly

Recommended Posts

I know I haven't been on the forum for a really, really really long time.  But I have to ask for advice!


My Millie has been having some issues lately.  It stops sewing!  I will be doing a panto and it just randomly stops sewing.  The power is still on, it is like you pushed a button to stop sewing.


I talked to Angie, who by the way is super, she sent me a new board, a capacitor and grounding wires.  My husband replaced the parts, I sent the old ones back to her, and I proceeded to quilt.  Unfortunately it stops sewing more now then it did before.


I have been careful not to static shock the machine or the table and I have no idea what is going on.  HELP!

Did you by chance change the wall outlet you were using?  If so the wall outlet or the circuit it is on could have a bad ground.  Our electrician when he put in surge protectors on the house panel, told us that we should check the ground every few years as it is how the surge protectors get rid of an over voltage.  



May your threads be balanced, and your bobbin forever full….

Just a thought, have you checked your motor brushes? If they are worn down the power won't be able to flow consistently.
