SOURCE: States Overloaded. What does that mean?

The shaft is getting stiff and motor can't turn it. Try taking the bottom off and cleaning the fuzz out. Use alittle oil on all of the joints.

SOURCE: husqvarna viking diamond deluxe embroidery machine main motor overload

I'm not familiar with the Diamond machine but suggest the following. The motor is overheating. Is the sewing machine cord plugged directly into an outlet or are you using extension cords? Voltage drop due to long or light duty cords can cause the motor to run hot.
Can you trun the handwheel freely? If not, there is friction or binding in the machine that needs to be corrected. The blank screen and reboot are simply protection devices like a circuit breaker in your home electrical circuits. Find the source of the problem!

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.

What does it mean when it says main motor overload please wait


If it's a Huskylock Serger it means the machine is in a "bind," possibly think fabric, etc. The motor is "overloaded" and shuts down. If it continues after serving for a short time on normal fabric the motor needs to be rebuilt or replaced. See a local Viking Service Tech for repair or motor replacement.

If it is a Sewing/Embroidery Machine it may still be an issue with the motor but could also be the main control board or power supply. Again see a local Viking Service tech for repair.

What does Main Motor Rotate Error message means on a Brother PR650E


Hi if the main shaft is turning the fault is a faulty encoder if it is not turning faulty drive belt or main motor. All these items are under the machines covers.

I have a Singer Futura Quartet SEQS-6700 sewing machine. Keep getting error code 16, but there is no explanation in the product manual. Can you help?


Generally the error message is due to "some" electrical overload. It settles itself most times by turning off the sewing machine for a few seconds to allow complete shut-down and then turning it back on. It the error message returns, it is best to visit your qualified local technician.

Why does my 936 serger keep showing overloaded ?


My suspicion is that Viking sergers (905, 910, 936) bind up after heavy use and years of service. In other words, they are not "lubricated for life". Can you turn the handwheel on the machine? If not (or if extremely hard), you now know what the motor was dealing with. My guess is the motor is burned out, but you need both a total overhaul of the main shaft bearing system (cleaning the bearing and relubrication), and, a new motor.
I probably should consider repairing sewing machines in my retirement.

I have a Husqvarna Viking quilt 870 sewing


The overload message is usuall due to a bind in the mechanical function of the machine. When the motor has an extra "load" caused by something like a tight belt or dry bearing, it "overloads" the motor and the error message is displayed. It is doubtful your problem is computer related. Either way a trip to your service tech is required. If you continue to sew with it, you do run the risk of possible damage to some other parts of your machine. The computer portion of your Husqvarna is guaranteed for 5 years and the mechanical parts carry a 20 or 25 year guarantee depending on when you purchased your machine. A copy of your bill of sale from a Husqvarna Viking dealer or a stamped warranty card is the proof of purchase needed to obtain warranty replacement of parts. Labor is only guaranteed for 1 year.
