Machine needs to rest message

When you see this message, wait until the OK message is enabled. Tap the OK button and then resume sewing. This message occurs often enough to be listed in the manual under Pop-up messages in both the Sewing and Embroidery section. (That starts on the last few pages of each of these "chapters".) Turning off the machine while this message is displayed may cause on issue with the on-board computer.

For the Husqvarna Viking Designer Diamond Royale, you can find the manual on the product page: . The direct link to the manual is . The pop-up for the Machine needs to rest is shown on pages 4-26 and 8-14 (pages 74 and 123 of the PDF). The Designer Ruby Royale has the messages on pages 4-24 and 8-14 (70 and 116 of the PDF). The manual for this machine is here: .

I hope this helps. If the message comes up after a few minutes of sewing (under 5), I would recommend that you consider cleaning the bobbin area. Sometimes a flossing swab can help remove debris that has gotten into the corners below the bobbin. If that doesn't help, your machine may need to be serviced.

Have the Ruby Royale, the bobbin thread is coming to the top side of fabric, not getting full color. Have retreaded, new bobbin, no luck. It's a new machine and worked beautifully this morning.

Tension is probably the problem. Sewing heats up the machine and the tension discs may not like it. Also be sure that your thread, fabric and needle are correct. The wrong needle ( too big?) may draw too much thread from the bobbin.

Looking for a second hand sewing macine i want to buy second hand sewing machine

Not sure what your question is; are you looking for a Juki second hand machine? If so, you should try Ebay, Gum Tree Craig's list or join a Yahoo group where owners may list their machines for sale.

If you are looking for recommendation of a second hand machine to buy, then I would suggest that you go test drive some machines at dealerships and also write down a list of key features you are looking for. Most new sewers will look for a machine that gives them a range of practical stitches and a buttonhole but is easy to operate. But pricepoint is often the key purchase driver and sometimes paying a little more to get a stronger machine is worth the investment if you are going to be using this machine for the next 10-20 years.

If you buy a second hand machine you need to know that it is in good order, serviced recently and that parts and accessories are available for it. Try it out through all the stitches and have a good look at the stitch it makes; does the tension look even, is it sewing the widest zig zag or is it skipping stitches.

If I was to buy a 2nd hand machine I'd look for a Swiss made mechanical machine such as a Elna Star Series SU, or a mechanical Bernina 830, 1003 or something similar. I see these come up on ebay from time to time, just hunt for a local one and go look at it rather than take a risk and bid without trying it.

But everyone has a preference; often based on what they used or saw their mum or nan sewing on and there are lots of other good brands out there. However, if you want lots of stitches, alphabet and 6 buttonholes, you are going to have to go computerised; not so easy to fix yourself obviously and can be expensive for electronic components if they go. So look for a model that isn't too old so parts will still be around for it.
