APQS

Top 10 Tech Support Questions/Solutions

Recommended Posts

TAKE the maintenance classes! At Innovations in Tacoma last month I signed up for the APQS maintenance class (reluctantly, because I don't want to waste my time with boring stuff, right.) Turns out Mark was the BEST teacher of all the classes I took, and I am now empowered to keep my machine in tip top shape.

You can learn all the feathers and freehanding you want to, but if you don't keep your machine running it won't do you any good now will it? The really great thing is, after taking the class and knowing more about how your machine works, if you then ever have to call back to APQS for help you'll be more knowledgeable about what the problem might be and you'll be able to help them help you better. Make sense?

Thanks Mark!

Wow! Thanks so much for the compliments! I'm so glad that you were able to attend the maintenance class. I agree as far as when you gain the confidence, things seem much easier. And even if you can't figure something out, at least we can be on the same page when you call in. :):)

Thanks again Eva!

Mark, Will you be at innovations 2007? I will sign up for your class first thing. I missed 2006, was there in 2005 and will be there 2007. I haven't had much trouble, nothing big, with my millennium, but I want to add the compuquilter, so I think the more I know the better.

Hi Evelyn,

This was my first year teaching at Innovations. I'm sure I will teach again next year. Same class, basic maintenance on your machine. I look forward to having you in my class! :)

Hi Mark, will you be at Innovations in 2008? I just discovered APQS machines, Innovations and will probably be purchasing one in the very near future. Sure would be nice to know how to care for it...her...

Hi Dory,

I will not be teaching at Innovations this year. We have a new AQS show in Des Moines this year so I have a conflict. Amy Anderson has taken over our customer service dept. and has teaching experience so she will be doing the APQS Maintenance class this year instead of me. Sign up! Amy does an awesome job and you will learn a lot!!

Take Care,

I\'d love to have someone teach APQS maintenance at the HMQS in Salt Lake City, UT. We have a lot of owners here and they usually just have a Gammill maintenance class. I know the classes are set for this year but maybe for 2009? Pleeeease!!!

Thanks, Linda

Help! My new to me Millie (2004) is blowing fuses . . . any ideas about what\'s the problem? I (we) just put everything together and plugged her in, nothing happened. My SIL is my mechanic, he\'s a machinist and electrician, anyway, we found the fuse and it was already blown. The machine never turned on for me, that first try. To make a long story short, I drove 80 miles roundtrip to purchase replacement fuses @ Radio Shack. Replaced the fuse and turned her on, she ran for about 30-45 seconds, long enough for the florescent light to start and stay on and then shut down. Another blown fuse. Any ideas or suggestions? I could have Lloyd my SIL speak with you if you\'d rather talk to someone with a mechanical background, although I\'m usually pretty accomplished with my computer, printer, copiers, etc. If I don\'t hear from you before morning, I will call the 800 help and speak with the lovely lady I talked to about my machine and it\'s "used" status. Thanks so much for anything you can tell me which will get this lovely lady to stitching!

Does anyone know why my needle goes down when I am advancing the quilt. This drives me crazy, holes in quilt, breaking needles and who knows what else in the bobbin area...poor thing! I think it is a short or something like that. Any ideas greatly appreciated. Have a good day! :) this needle thing on advance just started.

I would call APQS and get support over the phone. Could be a minor adjustment needed.
