    Same Problem : Getting ERROR Head Lift on a DTC500-LE -



    ANY HELP WOULD BE APPRECIATED

  • icsaruba Apr 25, 2008

    I have the same issue and it seems to be the belt that drives the printhead that is worn, this is a very inexpensive part and can be replaced by a tech. Also I have contacted Fargo Tech Support and the problem may also lay in the sensor that is behind the circuit board.

Cabrio washer 5d error code


chances are the 5d error code you see is actually sd. it is supposed to signal excessive suds in the water but it seems to show at other times as well. but regardless of the code and depending on you mechanical abilities, remove the center cap on top of the agitator, remove the bolt and remove the agitator. some force may be needed to get the agitator off the shaft, keep equal pressure 180 degrees apart and work around the base lifting the agitator, gently rock the agitator as you lift. when it comes off take the screws from the gear hub assy out, probably six screws. when the cap is lifted off you should find a small gear, pull it off the shaft, clean and look at the teeth inside. if worn, get replacement part. put back together and run a rinse and spin cycle or similar to see if it spins . hopefully it will solve your problem.

I keep getting "check and rethread the upper thread" error message


Hi....I also kept getting the check and rethread upper thread message, I\'d sew about 15 stitches and it\'d stop. Here\'s what I did. On the left of the machine, in the back there is a screw....loosen that screw, take cover off, then lift straigt up and out on the cover that has the 3 on it in your threading seqence. Next, I started inspecting and cleaning the thread route from top to bottom. Lo and behold....I get to the place where you come down the front of the machine and turn to go back up and I spot a little slit in the plastic piece so, when I was threading the machine I guess I was pulling it to far to the left causing it to wear a little slit in that piece....so, I finished cutting it off with a utility knife, used an emery board to smooth it down, put the covers back on and it works GREAT!!!! Who would\'ve ever that it\'d be so easy and save me a bunch of money!!! I sure hope this helps someone.

My footup and footdown button is stuck and I keep getting an E1 error on the screen. Do I need to take it in for repair or is there something I can do to fix it? Machine will not sew because of the error...


Turn the machine off first and unplug.

If you've got a manual, look up the page for trouble shooting, this error message may be listed iwth a solution. I'd also suggest that you remove and clean out the bobbin holder. This is the little black piece you put the bobbin into. It has possibly dislodged if you've had a jam up. You will need to unscrew the two screws holding the needle plate down, take out the needle and pressure foot to give yourself some room too. Put the bobbin holder back into position lining up the red markings on the holder and the stopper, your manual should show images of this.

Once its all back together, turn on and hopefully it will reset to normal mode.
If you've done all this and the error message won't stop showing, then yes, you'll need to take it in for a service.

Brother CS-6000 E1 error message - my presser foot is not up!


Did you take this machine apart? If so, then the lever that extends from the thread tension wheel is to the right of the raised presser foot switch plate (inside the sewing machine), keeping the switch from being unpressed.

Take the machine apart again, raise the presser foot, and put the machine back together. This will ensure proper alignment of the plates.

Trying to connect agitator without dogs getting out of place


I thought the two parts would snap/connect together. They don't. Put the agitator on upside down over the "dogs" and their connector. Holding that together put the top agitator over the bottom. Carefully put over the metal connector inside the washer and connect the bult. The bult is what holds the pieces together.
To take apart initially I had to use a socket set with a long extension and a pipe over the racket handle to get enough torque to loosen the bult

Clothing lost


There are 2 clips (green) between where the front panel and the top come together. (use a flash light to help locate) Take a metal putty knife and push the clips towards the rear while lifting on the corner. (This is difficult as you have to work each side up a little at a time) On the top of the tub, there is a white plastic tub ring that snaps on. Remove this by pushing down while GENTLY bening the tabs out. In the middle of the basket there is a small white cap, pry it off with a flat head screw driver. Under neath there is a bolt. Unscrew the bolt and lift the basket out. (careful, the outside or the basket is sharp) Your clothes should be underneath.
