Millie suddenly races for a second or two

Recommended Posts

Occasionally when I am quilting along, my millie suddenly races for a second or two making tiny stitches.  It scares me to death as I am usually using a ruler and have my hands down near the hopping foot.  I tried blowing out the carbon in the area around the motor under the hood, I've tried using a humidifier incase it is static electricity build up, but don't know what else I can do...

 

Has anyone else had this issue and what did you do to fix it?  It has me nervous while I am quilting....

Does this indicate that you pulled out the brushes, and then blew out the residual dust?  

If not, I would suggest doing this.  https://www.apqs.com/motor-brush-maintenance-video/

APQS tech support is also a good idea if it does not correct the issue.

Best of luck.

I have been having a similar issue to yours however is seems to happen at around the same place on the table.  It only happens when Quilt Path is engaged.  I have checked for any kind of interference from objects under or around the machine.  When I release the belts I don't have the problem.

Thanks,
