If you are electronically inclined then you should have a voltmeter, otherwise find someone that does or get one from Radio Shack. I assume that it is taking water in. Check to make sure you have voltage running to the motor. If there is, then it may have burnt out. Sometimes a worn drive track is what the problem is too. If you still can't find a problem, can you tell me anymore about the unit you have, whether you can hear it running or anything. Let me know how this turns out.

This is dependant on the pump which should be running when you switch it on. Alot of times these stop working due to air in the system which greatly reduces the suction of the pump. There is a bleeder screw on top of the filter which will help purge the air out of the system. Many times the air leak is simply a poor seal on the pumps filter basket. There is a large o-ring on that clear cover which seems to stretch and become ill fitting to the ride area of that pump to o-ring and cover. It is highly advisable to use lube on that o-ring as well but not petroleum based lubes (like vasoline or spray lube).Use a plumbers grease or lube provided by pool equp. store designed for o-rings. If your suction is up to par and cleaner still will not function,there is a special diaphram in the unit where debris can get caught inside causing the unit to malfunction. Look inside the suction area of the cleaner and you should be able to see and inspect the white rubber diaphram from there.If you are lucky, you can lube the o-ring and remove debris from the cleaner and resume operation...good luck

I just got a dressmaker 2402 sewing machine. The zigzag control knob does not turn and could you explain the two buttons on the either side next to control knob. Hope you can help me. Thanks so much

Many used machines have the parts inside stuck by dry oil and grease. It probably needs cleaned real good and a good oil job. There may be areas of rust as well. Anyway, use carburetor cleaner and qtips to clean it up. Don't get the cleaner on the rubber parts. Afterwards, place oil on metal against metal movement. Use sewing machine oil only. It is possible to have to force lightly to get the parts to move. If you can't get the controls to move then go to your pro closest to you!

How do you get the feed dogs in the up position

Feed dogs drop when you move the switch, they do not go up when you move switch back. Move switch to up position then turn machine 1 full rotation, voila feed dogs up. this is normal.

I just bought a Pfaff 1222 from a charity shop. When I plug it in, it starts to move by itself. Is this a feature that I can switch off or it power being sent from the foot pedal?

as far as i know no sewing machine should move on its own it should be run by the pedal i would look in my phone book & look for a repair shop & ask if they could look at it for you safety first you wouldn't want a child to get ahold of it & get hurt your self either

My futura ce200 is driving me insane because i have the small hoop selected on the computer but the machine thinks that the large hoop is selected. How do i fix it??

Before attaching small hoop, turn on power switch to
move the carriage to embroidering standby position, and
turn off power switch.

check troubleshooting in manual

I don't know how to oil it. It has been stored for a few years. I have cleaned it, but can not find my manual.

The bottom of that serger can be removed quite easily. Lay it on it's back and you'll see 4 larger screws and 2 smaller ones. You can remove the bottom without fear because nothing is mounted to the bottom plate. When the screws are out, the bottom comes off with slight pressure to the left after you open the front cover. Once open use your vacuum cleaner and remove the lint. You could use a rag with a cleaner like laquer thinner to remove any serious grime if there is any. Once clean, turning the handwheel on the side, you can see what parts move. Where ever you see metal moving next to metal put 2 drops of a teflon type lubricant. I personally like "Tri-Flow lubricant. Do not use 3 in1 oil. It's important that you don't use an oil that attracts dirt and turns "gummy" in the future. Tri Flow doesn't, 3 in1 does!

Sewing machine

I've had these machines - with students learning to sew - There are SEVERAL shuttle systems with this brand - if you have a two piece back case that the bobbin shuttle sits in -- these "STORIES" will work.

If not maybe post again - I'll see if I can help - the system is set BACKWARDS no matter the style of bobbin or where it is located on the machine.

You don't the opening location so I'll give you the stories for - front load below needle. The steps will also work with the topload - you just don't have to lie the machine down - if topload you should STAND BEHIND the machine to STACK the parts in as listed below.
If you are looking at the manual - you are looking at the entire process BACKWARD...Even with no manual it is a backward process.

Please don't laugh as you read through this - I taught young children - so this is how I have it memorized...I'm not attempting to "talk down" to you - these are my stories for 15 years with my kids.

Two ways to set this up - depends it you like to sit or stand....and on the size of your machine....and if you have to worry about belts/oil.....please pick what works for you.

- You can lie the machine in your lap or on to of a table - either way make sure it doesn't try to "escape" Sewing machines that get very slick and try to slip away from you.
- the machine thread spindles are facing you (where the thread goes) there are making every attempt to get close enough to poke your hip so you don't let them...(keep kis from breaking or bending spindles)
- handwheel (the circle) is on your left
- the bottom of the machine (the base is far away from you) because no one likes to see a bottom...
- pretend you are a CRANE operator placing parts of steel building parts near or on each other to make a building
- YOU wiill be starting with the swimming pool
- remember a crane operator NEVER sees the same building being built as the workers on the ground do - he sees everything in reverse and backward.
- first pick up the big flat base - put it into the hole to the right of the driver - up like a broken swimming pool - it faces up and on your right. HOLD ON HERE COMES ANOTHER PIECE.
- here comes the other half of the pool facing up the spike diving board is near the base - like a shark hiding (your model may have the HOOK (shark fin) towards your body
-don't let the pieces slip onto the top of each other like bricks because the ground is a little uneven- the pieces of the swimming pool might not set just perfect yet - that is okay - you might have to put one finger in the middle to help steady the load
- now set the ring in be careful there is a small part sticking out and you need to fill the extra space (the metal prong fits into the notch the
- line up the ring and fill in the small existing hole
- now frame the pool with the frame -be careful look at your
black FLIPPERS on each side - you may need to have the bumps up on the frame to hold the pool in place (the frame will fit one of two ways - bumps up or down - the "flippers" should sort of move over and it has a feel of a speed bump - then the pool is secure.
- ONLY AFTER THE FLIPPERS ARE SET is it "safe" to move the pool.
- If you did it wrong - the pool will fall out in your lap or on the table when you set the machine up. If your pool falls out - start again.

Her is a way that works for MANY KIDS - I JUST GET A HEADACHE:
Turn machine AWAY from you - lean over the top a replace parts in "opposite order to what the picture looks like. (I may miss a step I don't have an exact parts list in front of my face- so adjust as necessary
REMEMBER MACHINE IS TURNED AWAY FROM YOU (and I taught young kids - so please pardon my reference points....
- case (SOLID HUNK OF BREAD( back of shuttle (more solid back - GOES IN FIRST open faced out away from your belly button ON RIGHT SIDE OF YOUR belly button )
- the HOOK half of shuttle it will be ON LEFT-hook on top sits to LEFT of your belly button (may face up towards your face or down to the table
- a little on top of other piece...hold BOTH PARTS IN - like you have a very fat piece of cheese and you are pushing on it so it won't tip off the bread)
- now take the round ring (may have a metal mini TOOTHPICK sticking up - guide the Toothpick into the spot between the "teeth" there is a "notch" sometimes on the bottom - sometimes on the top depends on model
- move the fingers OFF your cheese - let the ring take over the job (of holding two pieces into the sandwich)
- then like a well made sandwich put the BREAD on top of the entire sandwich. the "front plate - often a square frame that fits -
- bring up the BLACK BRIDGES (the two flippers olives) to NAIL the entire sandwich into the table) NOW LET GO. If it all falls out we didn't have our SANDWICH meat smooth enough. Try again.

Hope this helps.
Mrs. G. :) (sorry for any typos - I'm up working way TOO EARLY or WAY TOO LATE!)

Singer Quantum Futura CE-200 Problem

My machine did the same thing. I had several frustrated nights ans then it just started to work. Some suggestions that I had was that there may be dust where the units connect. Not sure what I did, but it worked.

Needle won't move

Make sure the clutch motor is powering up. make sure voltage toggle switch is on 110v and not 220v. Also rotation set correctly. Independently, make sure the motor runs. With your hands and motor belt disengaged, attempt to turn the handwheel toward you. If it is moving, then make sure motor is running. It handwheel does not turn it could be the machine. Make sure the stitch length dial is set at 2 or 3 and not 0 or 5. That could be that problem as well.
