If it has an internal motor which you cannot see it sounds very much like the belt has broken or come off. The whirring sound is probably the motor which still runs when you apply power

My Brother PC 8200 was doing an embroidery pattern and suddenly sped up and went crazy! I can't get it to stop sewing motion except to turn all power off. Stop/Start button is red but non-responsive


*Grin* I use to have this machine! It's a very old machine and may not be worth repairing. *tear* It sounds like the on/off switch is broken and un-responsive. The "Sped up and went crazy", part sounds Motherboard related. You never know; take it to a Authorized Brother repair shop motherboard....

My LS2125i will sew a straight stitch but when I turn it to a zigzag stitch it takes a couple of stitches, then all of a sudden the top thread on the spool holder goes... whirl and winds the thread around...


sounds like your thread is getting caught in the thread spool's thread keeper notch. Make sure you use the spool holder disk with the closest size to the spool of thread to help prevent that. This is pretty common with old fashioned spools like coats and clark spools.

My brother suggests that i make sure the spool unwinds in a certain direction. You might check your manual to be certain the thread is unwinding the correct way.

Good luck.

I have a 40 year old Brother machine. It now runs


Yes, it is the capacitor, or the condenser as you call it has comletely short-circuited electrically bypassing the rheostat, which causes the motor to run at full speed. The cure is simple...cut it out of the circuit. On Singer machines the culprit is usually located inside the foot pedal box...probably on your Brother machine also. They were meant to supress noise from entering into your power line, which causes interference when listening to AM broadcasts, which everyone at the time did. The capacitors themselves will either be in one or two round cans or square flat cans. Simply snip the wires to the capacitor(s) inside the foot controller box and your machine will once again work like normal!

MyLock 134D coverstitch?


While the ML134D is a very good entry level overlocker/serger, for coverstitch you will need a different or dedicated machine.
Janome has recently introduced a new model that is a combined Professional Coverstitch/Overlocker it is model 1200 D (Link) and is truly amazing in the diversity of stitch options
Their other coverstitch only machines are the CoverPro 900 & 1000 www.bargainbox.com.au
