If there is a reboot option it should be in the instruction manual
if it doesn't show there, contact the one you bought the machine
from to see what they suggest.
you said you had the machine plugged into a serge protector
I also suggest a battery back up you can get them at different stores
like wal mart or best buy, that way if the power goes out the battery
back up will kick in and keep the embroidery project going, the
battery back ups have different time amounts on them, we have 2
battery back up, one for our desk top pc and the other for our
daughters pc for her school work and they do come in handy.

Attach the hoop ONLY after you turn on the machine.

SOURCE: Elna 6003Q Sewing Machine won't snap out of bobbin winding mode

I had the same problem and fixed it myself. Remove the portion of the housing that coincides with the bobbin winder. You will need to remove two screws to do this--one is just to the upper left of the bobbin winder itself, and one is hidden under the handle on the left side of the machine (lift the handle, and look on the machine on the left side.) It takes some coaxing to remove the housing, but it can be done--be gentle. If you need to, remove the housing on the left side of the machine that covers the needle assembly. This will make it a bit easier, but still, be gentle.)
After removing the housing, you will see a black metal piece with a elongated slot and a screw adjacent to the bobbin winder mechanism. Unscrew the screw a turn or two, and slide the piece to the other side. Tighten gently. Turn your machine on, and move your bobbin winder back and forth and watch the screen change from bobbin winding to the main straight stitch screen. Now, do a brief Dance of Joy. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: while sewing the bobbin case moves, wheel locks up, needle locks

Im not sure if this will help but thought I would pass it along. My Pfaff 6122 tells me to check bobbin for thread unrolling clockwise before you place it back in the machine. I had mine turned to un roll counter clockwise, this is wrong, the bobbin will fall out when you pull on the thread while you are holding it in your hand. You may just keep putting it in backwards. Hope this works for you. J.R.

SOURCE: Husqvarna Viking 1050 Sewing Machine Motherboard

Very likely is the motherboard. Make sure you are using an authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer. You can find the closest dealer at the Husqvarna Viking website - http;// There should be parts available from them. It may take a while to get it if it has to come from Sweden. If the dealer is not able to get the motherboard and install it for you, ask them to send it to Viking for their Technical Service department to repair. They may be able to rebuild the machine. Yes, the 1050 is a good machine. Good luck.

Where is the reset button on Elna6004 6004, overload message keeps appearing

The message means that the motor is drawing too much current. Could be a mechanical bind or the motor itself is worn out.

Hope that helps.

Why is my bobbin thread is showing while embroidering

Your tension on top can be loosened. If this causes your stitch to be too loose then tighten your bobbin tension. Just think of the top and bottom tensions as a tug of war. They must be even to get the stitch in the middle of the material.

Overload reset button on porter cable 10 in table saw

Why this is in sewing machines I will never know.

But this is an example of pushing a saw beyond it's limits. At best you should have cut one post, shut the machine off and let it cool... then go for the next. (Better yet get a friend with a saw mill saw the thing down for you)

I believe you have burned out your motor. Off the store you go....for a new one.

I was embroidering on my janome 9000 it jammed and went dead and won't come back on!

Be sure that it's still plugged in and not on a plug in that is controlled by a switch that got accidentally turned off.

Other than that it is likely that a fuse got blown or the power supply died. In that case take it in for repair.

My memorycraft 9000 computerscreen went's a bluish colour..the machine still embroiders and sews..but i can not remember all the it a new screen i need..a phone quote was $400 -...

It sounds like the screen is still getting power there are a few things that might cause display problems. Referencing the troubleshooting section from the manual the only display issue listed is "Visual touchscreen is not clear" The fix is to adjust the display by turning the Visual Touchscreen Sharpness Adjustment Knob. You can find the location on page 2 of the manual, located online at:
If this does not resolve or help the issue there could be a lose connection inside the machine or the screen may have failed. If you do not feel comfortable tinkering inside your machine you may want to take it somewhere to have them work on it.

My Janome 10000 stopped in middle of embroidering a design and the machine rebooted. it was making a bit of a whining sound as it was stitching just at the last..but now the hand wheel seems harder to...

Janmore10000 Stopped Embroidering thenstopped everything just shutting off.
If it is getting no power at all, it is probably a fuse. Thefuse is located in a little black box underneath the base of the machine, butit is NOT an easy job to take the box out, disassemble it, replace the fuse,and then reassemble the whole machine. But in your comment you mentioned that there is power tothe machine that means its not fuse problem.

It stopped embroidering in the middle of a project. the handwheel would notmove at all this means that it wasthread jam. Also check the carriage carriage if it does not move to the rightor left and gor stuck in one position or hardly moving a bit then it is out of calibration.

if your machine is outof calibration it will need to recaliberate . Something is like forcing theneedle through a thread jam would cause this. This is not an expensive repair.But a time consuming repair. Its advisable to get it done by service center,

This will help. Thanks please keep updated. please dorate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya.
