motor smells

Recommended Posts

I recently acquired an Ultimate II machine.  I used it about a week ago, and just kind of tested it out (with flannel and batting).  Tonight I started my first quilt.  As I was using it tonight the motor smelled. 

As you can see by the pictures the motor is fairly new (11/17). 

Is this a motor issue? or did I have the speed turned up to high?

Thank you

That is indeed the number! And you may call them at any time, as the owner (no matter how many) of an APQS machine. They will support you indefinitely, you just won't get any free parts. And they have much more expertise on the older models than those of us out in the field who may see them once a year.

Sew:  Did the motor get hot?  If so, you might have the drive belt set too tight.  When you press your finger on the belt, it should move about 1/4 inch.  If it's tighter than that, loosen it a bit, and try sewing again.  Good luck.  Jim
