Tune-up instructions needed
it really needs to be oiled and cleaned in places u cant get to which means it needs to be taken apart by a tech that cleans them, ask me I learned the hard way.......I hadnt used my machine very long by I do use it alot and first it started to get a little louder not a lot but I could notice it.....then it started to mess up a little bit here and there and I always cleaned it oiled where they said blowed it out with the vac and all.......but it still went crazy on me lol, I was doing braclets for my granddaughters scoccer beach blast and had like 20 more to go and it just froze......just froze........so I thought it was maybe to hot. Shut it down for the night.......Next day still nothing, had to find someone to take it to...1 and a half hours away I finally found someone, had to leave it........what it needed was oiling where I couldnt get to, and cleaning where I couldnt get to......so it burnt the motor......had to have it replaced, was gone for 2 weeks. UGH....but now she purrrrrrrrs like a kitten again thank god.......I had only used it since December of 08, it was still new......but it still needed a tune up, and I didnt know any better, thought that how bad could it be, so I just kept it real clean and oiled so I thought NOT! Silly me.......2 weeks later and a nice bill and new motor........and Im off again.....next time something seems to be off...this baby is taking a ride....I cant afford those kinds of problems............so take my advice fine someone even if u need to take a day and drive it somewhere, but dont not do it, inside this baby is lots of boards and things that if u open it u wont get it back together correct, oh ya I did that to and they had to fix that too
:( not a good idea. Machine is worth to much not to fine tune it when it should be, but even if u dont think it needs it cause its new or u just had it done.......think again if it sounds funny.......something is wrong, hope u wont need to find out the way I did....good luck...am so happy to have mine home again, didnt know how much I loved it till it was gone lol
