Burnt fuse or fusible link, maybe . Check for B+ voltage on the heavier gage wire on the back of the alternator , Does the charging light on the dash lite ? Besides the heavier wire on the back ,how many others are hooked to the alternator ? Two in a connector ? Is one red ? this also should have B+ voltage . The last one , brown ? With the key on an the charge light lit on the dash this wire should have power also.
Not sure if I can help, but it may have to do with the heavy thread as well as the fabric and needle combination. If the fabric is thick or tightly woven, be sure to use a brand new sharp needle. (If the fabric is tightly woven (like Batik), a thicker thread may present a problem.) In your case, if using a heavier thread, perhaps a top-stitch needle would be beneficial since it has a bigger scarf to protect the thread. With the heavier thread in the top, the top tension will need to loosened. BUT, if you loaded the heavier thread in the bobbin, the bobbin tension will need to be adjusted to accommodate the thread thickness. However, remember that if you adjust the bobbin tension for this project, you will most likely need to readjust it for the next project using different materials.
FWIW, if the machine still works fine with regular fabric and thread, then you'll know that the issues revolve around the current project.
Most domestic sewing machines will not handle heavier thread than the standard 50 weight. I'd suggest you go back to regular polyester sewing thread and use a 110 or 120 size needle to cope with the heavier fabric. Sew slowly and give it some help on the flywheel when crossing a seam allowance. Maybe stitch each seam twice, with a 1mm gap between to give it strength.
If you need to use the heavier thread to do the job then you will probably need an industrial sewing machine that can handle that grade of fabric and thread. Something like a Singer 20U machine in a table with seperate motor drive.
Fabrics like Canvas, ticking and PVC for exterior items are generally going to be beyond the functionality of a domestic machine and you can damage the machine, particularly the timing by trying.
Slight engine wear. Would advise using a heavier oil. The 5w 30 is great with low mileage. As an engine wears & the miles add up the internal parts get looser & a heavier oil should be used to help. Would start using 40 weight oil. Some smoking will continue but you should see a decrease in the morning start up & a rise in pressure during the day. There's also the STP & other motor oil honey/additives that can help these symptoms.
Sometimes the thread is old and breaks easily, another cause could be what you are sewing requires a heavier needle such as a #14 or #16. If it is denim or canvas there is a gadget called a jean a ma jig, sold at JoAnn fabrics that lets you sew over heavier seams. You didn't give really enough information to really be able to diagnose.
The battery may be too low for the power supply to charge it AND power up the laptop.
1. Remove the battery from the laptop
2. Plug in power adapter
3. Turn ON laptop; it should startup
4. Logon (if required)
5.Wait for the OS (Windows?) to settle down....
6. Put battery back in
7. Allow battery ro recharge a few hours.
(8. Obtain a heavier-duty (more watts) power adapter.)
(8A. You will have a spare to keep at your desk and one in the case)
If that doesn't work, then perhaps the power jack on the laptop is damaged. Check to see if the power plug at the laptop is "loose". If so, then:
1. Move the power plug to the left or right to see if the power lights on the laptop change on/off.
2. If they change, move the cord to whatever will keep it ON and charge the battery.
3. The jack may have come disconected (un-soldered) from the motherboard.
1. The power cord plug may be defective. You said that the power adapter is ok; however, if your conclusion is based on the fact that the LED light is ON on the adapter, it means that the power is at least getting to the converter part, but not necessarily to the plug at the end of the cord.
2. If you can further test it ... on another computer or voltmeter or use another adapter on your laptop (swap with someone, but don't use anything other than a Compaq power adapter).
I hope the first solution works! Please comment... to let us know...
