Question about Brother Sewing Machines

1 Answer

Sewing machine won't sew but does other things.

I have a brother vx540 sewing machine. It is old and used serviced in Ohio. It worked great. But sat indoors for about 12 months. I plugged it in and pushed the foot petal and I can thread a bobbin easy just like before. But when I try to sew something that wont work at all. I used oil on the machine. I cant get the handle that goes up and down on the sewing machine some rust but not a lot from being inside.

Brothers sewing machine


first check the outlet to see if it works
next check to make sure the power cord is plugged into the machine
correctly.
if you've done the above things, & you push the switch to turn the machine on & it still won't come on, then the machine needs to be
checked.

Brother 1034d handwheel stuck


the best thing to do is take the machine in to have it checked.
sergers are nice & very useful, I have a babylock serger with the jet-air
looper threading systerm, and I use it alot when making clothes.
I even used my serger to serge the ends of fabric that I haven't used yet
so the ends won't fray.
