On Pins and Needles

Crazy Machine

Recommended Posts

I haven't  visited the  forum for a few years, my husband is very ill. Yesterday I turned on my machine, Millennium, and it went nuts. Needle started going up and down full speed without any prompting from me. It wouldn't  stop, had to turn off with the switch.  I moved the machine off the quilt, braced myself and turned it on again, same thing happened. This time I could smell something burning. Turned it off, waited awhile and tried again, same thing happened  and there is definitely  a burning  smell. Unplugged everything and proceeded to start cleaning my studio. Anyway I'm  in need of advice  if you have some for me. I don't  want to  have to keep cleaning. Thanks

Might be burning dust, if your machine has been sitting for a long time; or one of the wiring connections.  Probably best to call the factory.

What year is your machine?  Have you checked the needle up/down speed adjustment?  Burning smell, call customer service, they will help.
