Turn off and unplug machine. Manually move hoop frame front to back and left to right.
Plug in and turn on. Motors driving hoop x and y axis should initialize. If not you must see a tech, If the frame will not move see the tech

The embroidery unit needs to be calibrated. Can only been done by a trained dealer. you can relax, it is not a major issue and shuold not cost you a arm and a leg. Ask the dealer to also calibrate your touch screen and download the working hours on your machine.

SOURCE: Inapproipiate needle stop position THEN Main Motor Lock comes on

The BELT was OFF. I guess it did that during shipment to me. So my husband just put it back on. THAT SIMPLE. It just kept making a motor trying to run sound and my husband took the left top cover off and seen it was only the belt. I was SO excited. It saved me a service call.

SOURCE: embroidery arm won't park or go in position on hoop to embroider

You may need to have the embroidery unit serviced. The slide rods in the embroidery unit will get dirty over time and must be cleaned and lubricated. If not, the mechanism can not slide freely and you will be unable to keep the unit calibrated while stitching a design.
You could attempt to disassemble and clean it yourself, but if you bring it to a repair center in pieces or improperly assemble your repair is going to cost a lot more than it will if you go today.

SOURCE: Problem with my Babylock embroidery machine

I had this problem. You need to be sure that the upper thread is not catching on something. Also, be sure to take out the bobbin case and brush out the area in and around that area throughougly, after every use. Lastly, use a good brand of thread.

How do i repair X-Axis home position error for pr 600II

If the machine's embroidery arms have been moved under force when the machine's power is on, you may need to have the machine tune up and reset to true center. I would suggest taking it to a authorized repair shop for a good cleaning and service. In most cases for what you paid for the machine, there is included service that can come with the purchase of the machine, or in the least, a discount on mechanical services and repairs.
