Perhaps the foot control is faulty. That's a good place to check first. If not the foot control, then the machine's components may be going out.

Testimonial: "Nope... it's like an electrical thing or something. Like its getting too much power or the wrong signal from the system. Sews at like 50 stitches per second!"

"Hello, I have the ambition 1.5, absolutely love it. To switch the font to normal stitching you have to delete or save the sequence. To delete it just tap the little garbage photo and to save tap the heart. With that done you then go back to your stitching tab select a stitch and tap the little garbage bin to erase sequencing and go back to normal stitching."

Lo warning comes on when i try to sew. Waited 15 secs did not work. Cannot sew.


It sounds like a machine overload. Rather than just turning it off for a few seconds, turn it off and clear out the lint from the feed dogs and the traces. That should take sufficient time to reset and you'll avoid another overload.

I have a Singer 7285Q sewing machine that comes up with a "E-7" message and the machine won't work. It only happens when I use "back stitch" button. My instruction manual has no mention of an


E7 means
The start/stop button, reverse/reinforcement stitch button
or the thread cutter button was pressed while no thread
cassette was installed. If the start/stop button is pressed before the sewing machine is correctly set up or if an operation is performed
incorrectly, an error message appears in the stitch indicator. Follow the instructions that appear.
If you press (Stitch selection key) or do the operation correctly while the error message is displayed, the
message disappears

Machine beeps and stops sewing, no error message displayed


sounds like not through the tension plate (on top) right... rethread and make sure you hold the thread taunt toward you as you putt through top tension... you should hear a slight click and some resistance...

Beep sound on Kenmore 19233 sewing machine


I had the same problem. Through trial and error, I found the problem was with the thread tension. Usually the thread became wrapped around the spool holder as it was coming off the spool. As you continue to press the pedal, tension is created. When you release the pedal, some slack develop in the threading process and you are able to sew a few more stitches before the beeping starts again.If the thread is caught on the spool holder, simple re-thread the machine.That generally works for me. If it continues to happen, place you thread in a cup behind the machine and thread as usual. You can also purchase an inexpensive thread holder. I made one out of a wood block and other odds and ends found around the house.
