Euro-Pro Model 9110 Monogramming issue

I tried to use the monogramming feature, but there are 2 issues I faced. 1) I couldn't figure out how to get the machine to use lower case and 2) When I decided to just use all upper case, when I went to sew, the pressure foot did not seem to be in the right position and when the needle started sewing, the needle broke. Scarry for me because it almost hit me in the eye! What's the secret for monogramming?

SOURCE: using my monogram machine

The one thing I've found is that when using the fonts stored in the machine, you need to treat each as a separate design. Then you would change the size of the Center Letter. I, too, wish the manual was more instructive. It is much easier to use a separate software program where you can create lettering and monograming. Do you have PED Basic, the program that allows you to download from your computer? That is a very good investment (about $150) and you can get free designs and download purchased lettering from different web sites. There is also a good site www.embroiderydk.com where you can join for a small monthly fee and create lettering and monograming. You also have access to over 7000 designs that you can download free whenever you want. It is well worth the price of $9.00 per month and you don't have to be limited to a bunch of emboidery cards or just the built in designs on your machine. One final idea...go the Brother.com and request more instruction on the embroidery portion.

SOURCE: monogramming problems

Hi Stacbac & Monogrammom,

Could be a number of causes - below are a few to consider:

  1. a loose thread in the path of the sensor (in most cases, the upper thread break is triggered by a sensor in the upper thread path of the machine)
  2. a rough spot in the upper thread path that's catching the thread, causing it to not feed smoothly and trigger the sensor incorrectly
  3. a sensor gone bad (that still does not work when reset)
  4. a computer board gone bad (rare but possible)
Your specific machine models will dictate where the sensors are located. If you can see the sensor, look around it to see if a loose thread is the culprit. Feel the upper thread path parts of the machine for any rough spots (those you can get to at least). Rough spots can be smoothed - best done by your dealer if your machine is still under warranty or you're uncertain how to accomplish - but if you're very familiar/comfortable with machine repairs and have used an emery cloth you may be able to smooth small rough areas yourself.

Beyond blowing out any fuzz (canned air or a small air compressor) if a sensor or computer board is bad, a reputable dealer will need to take care of the problem for you (generally one who sells your brand machine as they will be able to get the parts and install them properly).

Not a perfect answer (not knowing specific machine models) but hopefully this will help you narrow down what's happening.

Happy sewing,
Kim & Linnette

SOURCE: Sewing manual for a Reliable or Sailrite

The problem is that you purchased a clone of the Sailrite Ultrafeed. Most people do not know how much work Sailrite puts into each Ultrafeed Sewing Machine before it is shipped to customers. They hold 17 patents on the Zigzag Ultrafeed and know this machine inside and out. So when each machine goes through the assembly line in Indiana they are then tested by Sailrite in 2 layers of canvas then 8 layers of canvas then 4 layers of vinyl fabric if it does not sew it flawlessly they fix it, Ultrafeeds work right out of the box! So, it is highly unlikely that you will be able to get the clone machine to work. It must be totally rebuilt (a 4 hours process for an experienced technician). Sailrite will not work on any clone machines. So get your money back and buy a Sailrite Ultrafeed! If you are desperate and can not return the machine you can buy a DVD that Sailrite made for the Ultrafeed (each Ultrafeed purchased gets it free) it can be purchase here: http://www.sailrite.com/Ultrafeed-Advanced-Maintenance-DVD . It will help with timing issues, but will not show you how and what to do to rebuild the machine.

SOURCE: I have a Shark Intelli Sew 9110 Euro Pro. It was

There is no solution for that problem. My machine was doing the same thing, I returned it for "repair". Got it back 2 wks later and had the same problem. Just the other day, the machine did that, and then something "popped" and now the upper thread won't catch the bobbin thread. I called Customer Service and was told that if I want my machine repaired, I have to send them a check with the machine for $81! Your best bet...get rid of the Intelli-Sew and buy something that doesn't break every month or so!

My sister just received the euro-pro 9110 as a gift but the manual is in spanish and she needs a manual in english - can you help?


This link no longer seems to exist:
http://www.euro-pro.com/europro/default.aspx

This link sells the manual (language not specified, but the contents are given in English) for $8.00 (U.S.)
http://www.tradebit.com/filedetail.php/32241226-euro-pro-9110-sewing-machine-manual

I cannot find a free english download - lots of broken links and circular links, though, since
"Euro-Pro" seems to have been bought by SharkClean.com, and their web site
http://www.sharkclean.com offers no support (manuals or otherwise) for any sewing machine.

Euro-Pro Shark Intelli-Sew 9110


you need a new bobbin case, only problem is finding the right one. I am currently wasting hours trying to find one for our 9110 intelli sew which has needle holes punched through it from where it jumps right out. I think lots of manufacturers know fine which parts fit the Euro-Pro but would like all of us to scrap them and go out and buy theirs!

Timing the Euro-pro model 9110


i had this happen to me a few weeks ago. after much research i was able to find a blow up diagram of my machine which allowed me to fine the timing nut and screws and after watching Youtube tutorials on how to time other brands i was able to implement the same techniques to readjust the timing on my machine.


its really just a matter of not being afraid to tear apart your machine.

Won't catch bobbin thread


In order to see whether or not my euro-pro 9110 had a timing issue, the service rep had me change out the needle (making sure I was using anything but a Singer brand needle--they do not work in these machines). I re-threaded the needle, took out the bobbin casing and the plastic ring encasing the bobbin, then lowered the needle to see if the hook on the metal ring holding the bobbin actually catches the thread on its own. If it doesn't catch, it's a timing issue and needs repair. They can walk you through this process of troubleshooting and set up repair if need. Call Eruo-Pro's customer service center for sewing machine service and repair at 800-798-7395
