Has this problem been corrected yet? If so, great! If not, contact me and I'll help you out. In most cases with these circuit breakers, they need to be reset first (press in the yellow button). And then turn off the circuit breaker, and turn it back on. They're a little temperamental (pain in the neck)! This should allow everything to go back into its original order. Good Luck with this, and feel free to contact me again if this solution hasn't corrected it yet. - Jim

If you disconnect the load wires on the breaker and it will not reset, the breaker has a fatal flaw.

IF the breaker ONLY fails to reset with the load wires connected EITHER there is a wrong connection like servicing a shared neutral 3 wire cable from the breaker, or there is an electrical fault OR there is interference from a source that couples radio-like noise onto the wires to this.

After I "undid" winding my bobbin, the electronic display still showed the symbol for winding bobbin and the machine will only sew straight. None of the other buttons like back stitch or change stitches...

are you sure you've moved the bobbin winding mechanism back to the right spot? if its still pushed over against the bobbin spool holder it may be stopping the normal functions from working. If that isn't the problem then it may be something for the tech at the Elna dealers.

I assumes that there is a confused memory IC inside, due to improper data inputs. Try a hard reset to this set. Unplug it from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 10 minutes of so. This must make it a hard reset. If it do not help you, contact any service technician. If you are somewhat sound in electronics and If you wish to get more details, surf this link.

Pushed reset button and will not respond. Red on light stays on

Copy following link for Utilitec LW60418 timer.
Same as Westek TMDW10, and Stanley 30418

This timer is reset with one-button.
Unlike some timers that require 2 button push.
Push in reset button firmly with paper clip, and hold for several seconds. Repeat.
This action will clear timer memory.

If reset does not restore functionality, then timer could be bad.
This timer has 1 year limited warranty.
Suggest buying new timer at Lowes, and returning defect timer in new package.

Pushed to many buttons on my dx7 synthesizer and i need a master reset or something like that

Try powering up the synth, then press and hold the EDIT, 16, & 32 keys (so you end up with all three buttons pressed). I think this will reset it.
