    Yes, the LCD screen turns on but will not change no matter what buttons are pushed. Any ideas on what to do?

    I see, so on this machine the LCD comes on but will not change? It doesn't matter what you select as far as modes or other buttons?

    That is an indication that the machine has had a major internal hardware failure. About the only thing you can try is to unplug the machine for a good 2 minutes, and replug it in to the power.. Maybe even try another power outlet. Let me know if that doesn't make any difference..

    Sounds good, make sure to try another outlet as well just to rule out any possibilities of that.

    If that doesnt work it means the machine has hardware problems.. you will need to call contact a husqvarna person... I can find one for you, what is your zip code if need be?

Will A 5530 free arm table fit my 534 Singer?

I would guess, probably not. (Unable to find any info on the 5530 table.) Wouldn't recommend buying it unless you can actually try it on your machine, the seller will guarantee that it will fit your machine, or the seller can provide complete free-arm insert measurements of the extension table and match them to your machine's free-arm measurement. Best bet would to get a guarantee to return for credit if it does not fit.

With the small phillips screw under the handle removed, place your fingers on the ledge that the handle rests in while it's down, thumbs on the lower edge of the back cover below your fingers, pull slightly toward you and up at the same time. The cover needs to come out at the upper edge and then straight up to unhook from 3 screws that it hooks over.

My Shark Euro-pro 8260 sewing machine smells like it's burning inside... what is causing this and how can I stop/fix this? It has sat for several months since I last used it... and I hardly ever use...

hi, the motor may be going out,,smell the motor to see if it smells like a pair of old dirty socks, if it does smell then it needs to be replaced.

if it's not the motor then it could be some type of electrical short,, it needs to be serviced by a sewing machine shop

when a sewing machine sits for months, it needs to be covered with some type of plastic cover where dust can't get in.

I have a brand new reliable industrial sewing machine msk-8400bl18. i had a sewing machine guy out that showed us how to use machine, thread etc. about a month ago. everything went smooth and sewing...

given that the machine is only a month or so old, the best advice i can give you is to do nothing to the machine and call the sewing machine guy out to repair it for you. a brand new machine like this will be covered by the warranty. as long as you have actually switched the machine on properly, any faults are the responsibility of the supplier at this stage.

Screen turns on and flowers appear but will not continue

I had that problem last year. The repairman told me to make sure my sewing machine was on a very stable table, or it would move around & knock out the computer. The machine just barely moved, but that was too much. After I changed the table out that the machine sat on, it worked. Hope this helps.
