Creative 1472 sewing machine seems to have a mind of its own and the computer is doing different things each time it's switched on


Sounds like you are experiencing a computer glitch. Probably best to take it for service.

Sorry the needle is not going down,


Needles will not go down for:
1. The lock on the hand wheel isn't locking. Try this
a. Loosen the lock like you're going to wind a bobbin.
b. Loosen screw that is on the side of the lock. (sometimes front)
c. Tighten the lock just like when you're going to sew.
d. Tighten the screw that is on the side of the lock.(sometimes front)
e. Turn hand wheel by hand. Did the needle rise and fall?
2. The drive belt isn't moving the shaft.
a. Remove the top of the sewing machine.
b. You will most likely have to remove the panel on the end where the hand wheel is.
c. Turn your hand wheel to see if the belt is moving the shaft or is it broken?
d. Replace if you need to. (look at wear). Loosen the motor.
e. Make your motor run (foot pedal) slowly. Tighten the belt by pushing on the motor while it is running. When the motor is placed at the right place the motor will be moving with very little drag. (This will need a listening ear)
f. At this point tighten motor and retest for the speed and drag.

Baby lock bl4 736d serger slows down and stops


Your serger needs service. (clean, oil, adjust, etc.) It may be that the motor is not lubed well enough and as it is being run it heats up and expands which causes it to bog down and stop. I would take it in for service and "mention" this issue while you are there.

My bobbin winder stopped working on my Brother CS-8150. spindle locks in, motor runs, but it seems that the winder is slipping. Can this be adjusted?


I think that I would call Brother at 1-877-276-8437 and ask them if this is a warranty issue. They may have a quick fix for you.

My pfaff 1471 shaft with needle will not go up and down it is locked and what ever I try doesn't solve the problem. I have tried unlocking and locking the wheele but nothing seems to work. How can I take...


Undo the screw in the stop motion wheel, then unscrew the stop motiuon wheel, turn the 3 pronged washer intoi a different position, put the stop motion back and the stop motion screw and test, if that does not work move the washer again.

Won't work at all-esante ese baby lock


Check that the button used to snip your thread at the end of your seam is not stuck. Mine will sometimes stick and if I just touch it again it will again activate and the red start/stop button will work again.

Embroidery sewing machine stopped working


I am not sure what you mean: motor runs but nothing else moves?

Have you have turned the machine off and tried again? Like computers, sometimes they need rebooted.

More information is needed to evaluate further.

Check if thread is entangled, needle is bent


The machine act's as if the motor gets hot and quit's. Once it cool's off, it will work again.
