It sounds like there is a break in the cord some were.
or a wire in the plug may be lose.
either way you need to get it checked out.

First the power cord seemed to have a short in it and would only work if the cord was supported and left in that position . Next it stopped beeping when the stitches were changed. Now it does not work at...


A short would cause a bight spark and burning of the cord at the place of the short.
Sound like you have a poor electrical connection at or inside the machine where the cord attaches.
Take it to a repair shop.

The dyson handheld cuts out almost immediately after pulling trigger, Some times runs a little longer before it stops. Keeps doing this constantly. What is problem? Thanks G


Depending on the model you have:
Thermal cut out Most Dyson vacuums have a built in safety system that stops the machine if it begins to overheat. This usually happens because the filter needs washing or your machine is blocked. If your machine turns off on its own, unplug it and leave it for at least an hour to cool down. Remember to check the filter and look for blockages before re-starting

If that doesn't work shake your cord and see if there is a short in it.

I own a Bernina 1260 and am having a problem adjusting my bottom thread (it has loops in it). I have tried adjusting the tension but I still cannot get a perfect bottom stitch.


Hello

You would pull out several long lengths of matching thread from my spool of thread and knot the threads together at one end (to hold them together). Grab the knotted end of threads with your left hand and place the threads(held taunt together) under the presserfoot of your sewing machine.

Select a narrow zigzag stitch that will zigzag over the threads, and holding both the knotted end(Left hand) and the other ends with right hand( holding tauntly), zigzag down the length of the threads.

You can use this for matching button loops, cording for belt loops, or whenever you need matching cord. The thickness of the cord will depend on how many strands of thread you want to use. You insert the loop of cord into the seam, so that when the garment is turned RIGHT SIDE OUT, the loop will be sticking out of the seam and you can put the button through the loop.

What does "F 20" mean?


I don't know what a F20 code is but there are F21 and F22 codes. All the codes are explained on the technicians info sheet tucked in the wash machine. Remove the front valance under the door (3 screws at bottom of machine) and the sheet should be stuck on the right side of the machine.

My bosch maxx laundry machine wont turn on


If you dont have power to the machine, your electric cord from machine to power point is broken. To check this turn on at power point and at machine hold cord in hand and shake if machine makes any noise you have a broken lead which can be cut at break and fixed,but better replacing with new cord Hope this helps

Old ATOM G.888 Press head comes down and won't stop


Hi,
It seems like it could be a problem with the lower limit switch. Is there a way for you to replace that switch? If so, I'd start there.
Is there a shaft or some mechanical way of contacting the limit switch at the bottom of the stroke? If so, check to see that the piece is secure, and making contact with the limit switch as it should at the bottom of the stroke.

My Kirby G5 has stopped working, last few times it was used it kept cutting out everytime the handle was moved??????????


Hi,

This definitely sounds like your cord is bad. The reason that I specifically think that it's your cord is because the cord is actually connected into the handle, and is attached to the handle in the back. This would make sense why the machine was cutting off every time the handle was moved.

Also the cords are notorious on Kirby's for going bad, and are usually the only thing that goes bad on a constant basis.

Here's how you can check to see if your cord is bad or not:

Greetings from GoVacuum.com,

Unfortunately there is no fuse on a Kirby Generation model. In my 10 years of repairing Kirby's as well as other vacuums2_bing.gif I will tell you that 9 times out of 10, when a Kirby Generation doesn't turn on, it's the cord that needs to be replaced. This is by far the most common problem that we see on Kirby repairs.
The Kirby motor is very well built, and usually has a life of 30+ years (G3 is about 12-15 years now). The only other problem it could be on the Kirby would be carbon brushes, or the switch assembly.

I would first try testing the power cord, I think this will solve the problem for you. To test a cord on a Kirby Generation (all Generation models are the same machines, just different colors) first follow where the cord goes into the Kirby at the bottom. To access this cover easier, first remove the "boot" at the bottom of the outer bag. This is the plastic part at the bottom of the outer bag that connects onto the Kirby. You will see that there is a plastic cover over the cord. You will need to remove the screw that holds this cover on.

Now after you have removed the cover, pull the plug out of the machine. Once you have the cord disconnected from the machine, you can now test it to see if there is a short somewhere in the cord. You will need to purchase an inexpensive continuity tester from Home Depot, Radio Shack or most other electronic stores. This will tell you if there is power running through the cord, or if the cord is bad. With the continuity tester, plug the cord into the wall outlet, then put the positive, and negative testing rods into the female end of the cord that plugs into the machine. You will then be able to tell if the cord has continuity going through it. The tester will indicate if there's continuity or not.

The picture here shows that the cord is good. If your tester does not light up, or indicate that there is continuity, you'll simply just need to purchase a new cord. As I stated earlier, this is the most common reason that a Kirby won't turn on.

If however your cord tests OK, this indicates that the machine either needs a new motor (or carbon brushes in the motor) or it needs a new switch.

Elna supermatic...the light comes on ,,but nothing else works


Turn the machine on, press the foot control down and turn the handwheel backwards. If it sputters, the motor carbon brushes are worn to the springs and need replacing.

Next, while pressing on the foot control, try wiggling the wires around where it enters to machine and where it enters the foot control. There may be a short in the cord. If the short is at the machine, you need a new cord. If it is at the foot control, the cord can be pulled into the foot control, the shorted part cut off and the connection reattached.

If it still doesn't work, try removing the cord from the machine and placing an alligator clip test lead to two of the inlet prongs on plugging it into power. Which two prongs you ask? Try several combinations, (one will light up the lamp) CAREFUL: THE MACHINE MAY SUDDENLY TAKE OFF AT FULL SPEED, SO REMOVE THE BOBBIN, THE THREAD AND NEEDLE FIRST. if it runs, it is your foot control. If it doesn't run, it's likely the motor brushes or motor.

Brother P-Touch 1200 label printer doesn't feed whole label


Take out your cartridge and look at the end of the tape, it should be under the guide, the skinny bar, before going into your machine. Make sure you tuck it in under that bar and it should be OK.

JVC TH-M606 so many problems


Are the speakers made by JVC? Do they come factory with that unit? Is it a receiver/dvd player or is it just a dvd player?

It seems that the receiver (dvd player) doesn't have enough amps (power) to support the sound throughput being pushed to the speakers, therefore turning off the unit for blowout protection.
