If you do it yourself make sure you get a heavy enough plug most of the time there is maf. printing inside where the wires connect it will tell you what amps you need .

I would recommend replacing the plug with a new one. If you can do this yourself safely or get someone or an electrician to do it for you for peace of mind.

Ihave a Janome QXL605 which skips stitches on zigzag & blanket stitch etc. It is fine on straight stitch.

It could be that your machine is slightly out of time which shows up only when doing other than straight stitches. However, with the tingling experience, it may be best to take it for service.

How can I fix a computer sewing machine that has been affected by a power outage Brown out)?

Have you tried unplugging it from the wall completely, then try a different outlet when plugging it back in? If this doesn't work then the motherboard in the machine was zapped. You will have to take it to the shop for repair or replacement.

Control panel not responding

First check to make sure your outlet on the wall has power to it. :-) Then check to make sure cord is plugged in well at both ends. (at wall and at machine.) If you have a friend with same machine, switch cords and see if your cord is bad. Check with where you bought it, they may have a cord you can 'borrow' and try.

Not working

sounds silly... but did you remember to plug it into a working outlet? I sometimes forget and plug mine into a "lamp" outlet that has an on off switch on the wall.

I'm plugging it in as always and there's no power. Is there a reset button? It has been tilted on it's side for a few weeks.

Check the power wiring, especially where it goes into the machine. Is there a connector inside that may have pulled apart? If you have a continuity tester, find the power cord terminals and check for continuity between those and the prongs on the plug, or use a voltmeter or "voltage sniffer"* to check for voltage on the terminals with the machine plugged in.

*Voltage sniffer: a gadget that chirps and flashes a red light if it is brought near an energized AC wire. It comes in various forms, e. g., inside a penlight, screwdriver handle or wire cutter handle. A fox and hound type circuit breaker tracer should also work if the "fox" is plugged into the same outlet as the sewing machine.

I have the Thompson model PW-400 walking foot sewing machine and when I plug it in it immediately starts running. (sewing)

I have the Thompson PW400. I know this sounds like too simple of a solution, but it actually happened to us. We accidentally plugged the machine cord into the wall outlet. Are you plugging the cord attached to the machine directly into a wall outlet or extension cord? The second part of the cord has two plugs on it, one for a light and the other for the motor. If you aren't plugging the machine cord directly into the plug marked "motor" the machine will start up immediately running at top speed. Hope that solves your problem.

Hand wheel loose

In the middle of the stop motion screw wheel there is a screw, undo the screw and unscrew the stop motion wheel all the way off, you will now see a three pronged washer, take it off and put it in a different position, put the stop motion wheel back on and just tighten finger tight, tighten the small screw all the way, now loosen the stop motion wheel and press on the foot control gently, the balance wheel should move with moving the machine, if the machine turns then start over again, you can put the three pronged washer upside down if you wish.

The foot controller wires came loose from the power cord connector of my 15-91. In what order do they reconnect?

If you're talking about the plug end, it should really matter. If there's a ground, that needs to be connected to the round pin that goes into the outlet, the two flat prongs don't really need to be assigned to a specific side.
