SOURCE: stops sewing

Sounds like the motor is stressing and a cut-off is operating to protect from overheating........ensure the bobbin area under the needle plate is clean and clear of lint, and that there is no thread jammed around in this area, also at the take-up arm and the cams at the far left of the upper shaftnear the needlearm.........if there is thread wrapped around anything, unwind it VERY CAREFULLY .....DO NOT pull and break it, be patient and move the handwheel gently in reverse while gripping the trapped thread, working it free slowly.

Of course it may be that the motor is old and needing a replacement, but as this machine is quite elderly and may have other complicating issues, you would be best to have someone take a look at it for the best decision of fix or replace, if it comes to that point.

SOURCE: MC 11000 janome stops reading presser foot "p"

This is a relatively easy adjustment as I just did one last week but I'm not sure I can explain it. Anyway, open up the lamp cover and look at the top of the presser bar. There is a sensor that is easily adjusted. It has a small phillips screw that you need to loosen. Then move the black 'L' shaped piece either up or down a little (I can't remember which way) and re-tighten the screw, you may need to experiment. The 'L' shaped piece is a flag that goes between two sensors when the foot is raised and can be rotated left and right about 10 degrees. I hope that helps.

SOURCE: The top spool of thread jams tight when I pull the

It sounds like the tension setting is too tight. The tension mechanism consists of two metal disks; the thread runs between these disks. When the pressure foot is down, the disks come together, trapping the thread between them. When the pressure foot is up, the disks separate and the thread can flow freely. (BTW, this is why you adjust the tension with the pressure foot down.)

Take a look at your tension setting and try loosening it. That should resolve the problem.

Let me know if this helps, ok?

SOURCE: I cant get the machine to sew a buttonhole.

I am not familiar with your machine, but some buttonhole attachments require a lever be lowered and inserted into a tab.

Review your manual to see if a step was overlooked.

Error message foot too high. To correct this, it is necessary to restart the machine. Unless it is impossible to continue sewing.What is the problem?


Hi,
Try taking your presser foot off and lower the presser foot lever. Does the error code go away? The machine won't sew without the presser foot to hold the fabric down, but without threading the needle, will the machine run without the presser foot? Now try the standard presser foot (usually J ) and if you get the error code then the sensor at the top of the presser foot assembly is out of adjustment. Without knowing more about your machine this is all I can suggest.
Good luck,
Bob

The machine keeps giving me an error message with a diagram showing the foot should be down. It is, but it won't sew anything. I can thread a bobbin, so I know there is power to the machine. Also, when...


that presser foot with that black thing that is just flopping around... well when the presser foot is down that thing should be locked into the side hole. when you have the presser foot up, put it into the side hole, fiddle with it, move it around til you find that hole, then drop the presser foot it should be locked on it now. That T presser foot needs that.

My brother CE 4000 sewing machine freezes. After some tinkering I can sew a little then in happens again. It makes a shuddering noise then freezes and shows an E6 error message?


Turn off the power and remove the needle and presser foot.

Remove the needle plate, bobbin and bobbin case.

Clean the shuttle and surrounding area.

Replace everything.

Make sure the flat side of the needle faces to the back of the machine.

Raise the presser foot and re-thread the machine.

Brother CS-6000 E1 error message - my presser foot is not up!


Did you take this machine apart? If so, then the lever that extends from the thread tension wheel is to the right of the raised presser foot switch plate (inside the sewing machine), keeping the switch from being unpressed.

Take the machine apart again, raise the presser foot, and put the machine back together. This will ensure proper alignment of the plates.

Presser foot down, but still get error "E1"


I have a different model with the same problem. It started after I took the cover off to fix something else. After I screwed the cover back on, I kept getting the E1 message even when the foot was already down. I took the cover off again, and I found that there is a metal tab at the top left of the front cover, that is pushed by a metal tab in the back that moves when you put the presser foot up or down. You can see this metal tab moving in the back if you put the foot up and down with the cover off. Just putting the foot down(I think) before putting the cover back on fixed it so one metal tab is on the correct side of the other metal tab.
