Question about Sewing Machines
I have a Singer Izek. It stops after running for a couple seconds. I unplugged the foot control and tried just using the stop/go button and still got the same results. When I use the Gameboy and this happens, it activates the safety device and shows a flashing [!] icon where the motor is located, but tells me no more. The manual is also not helpful. I've had the covers off and looked at the circuit board and everything is clean (wires, connectors, solder). Not sure what else to do besides give up and look for a repair shop. It's not the foot control because this machine has a start/stop button so it doesn't require the foot control. Problem happens using the start button too. It's not the game boy, because the machine can still be used without the game boy and problem still occurs. Any suggestions?
The Izek has a motor over current protection circuit which measures the currend draw at the main motor. If the main motor is trying to run and it draws more current than it should the machine will stop sewing. In sew speak terms the machine is too stiff to turn easily. There are 2 different solutions. Completely lubricate the machine anywhere metal is on metal use oil (sewing machine) and metal on plastic or platic on plastic use white lithium grease. Try the machine now!
Next if that did not fix it make sure there is no lint, thread or the like wrapped around andy parts of the machine. Good luck
