Led light does not work. how to replace led light on singer 14sh654

I believe the newer machine lights need to be replaced by a technician. You can check on getting some of those LED light strips that can be added to the machine instead.

My winding bobbin display will not go off screen. I wound a bobbin and when I moved the switch back to remove the bobbin, the display will not leave the screen. It will not go away even when I turn the...

The machine has a small micro switch under the lid of the machine that is either stuck or bent. Remove the top and look in the area of the bobbin winder and flip the winder to engage and disengage. You should see a swith that the bobbin winder pushes against. That should be the problem, if it is bent you may be able to straighten it out.

Memory Craft 8000 LCD almost non-useable. Are replacement screens available?Is there any way to repair the display?

Yes, they can be replaced, we have them in stock. But first there are some questions about whether there are also issues with stitch selecting IN ADDITION to the dark screen, to ensure you would actually benefit from the repacement.

To find out, I can send you instructions to Reset the Touchscreen and also how to run the Self Test Routine, simply... Contact me. ALSO... Please just be sure to mention specifically what you need, as we do get quite a number of enquiries of various types each day.

The LED light won't show up

Check your bobbin winder spindle. It may be engaged. (pushed to the right). Push it to the left, if it's pushed to the right and the LED will go on.

Pfaff 7570 display screen info is very faint & difficult to read

Hi Carolyn,

Look for a small turning wheel, just below the green and pink selection knobs, on the front right of your machine. Turn it anticlock wise for a darker image and clockwise for a lighter image. Enjoy!

LED display on Janome Sewing Machine reads SP

SP means Spool Pin. It is currently in position to wind a bobbin. Move the bobbin winder pin to the left and SP should disappear.

Machine screen lights up but shows nothing.

Have you raised the feeddogs, or are they still down for free motion quilting ?
Is there a lot of lint under the needleplate holding the feeddogs down, .......remove the needleplate and give it all a good cleanout, there's also almost certainly accumulated lint around/beneath bobbin case, do this too, while you have the chance

If it is all still needing answers after this little housekeeping,
I can send you the diagnostics checks for the MC5000 as a pdf, though they are not readable (too small) if I post them as a reply here, so if you send a request via the "Contact Us" page I shall forward it.

BTW...When was your machine last serviced ?
