This problem sounds like it is related to a fuse, You will need to call your local Sears store, find out what your service options are and have then replace the fuse. This should be covered under the 2 year electrical warranty

Lo warning comes on when i try to sew. Waited 15 secs did not work. Cannot sew.

It sounds like a machine overload. Rather than just turning it off for a few seconds, turn it off and clear out the lint from the feed dogs and the traces. That should take sufficient time to reset and you'll avoid another overload.

I just purchased the singer 5500/5400 and I keep getting error code C4. I've followed the instructions in the book and some I've found on here with no luck. I'm so frustrated cause I can't even use my new...

Error code C4 is a machine jam. If you had a jam previously, there may be a reset somewhere that resets error codes.
Or, there is possibly a "hairball" of thread inside somewhere that is tripping the jam sensor.
Or, maybe the sensor is not functioning properly.

I have a Singer 7285Q sewing machine that comes up with a "E-7" message and the machine won't work. It only happens when I use "back stitch" button. My instruction manual has no mention of an

E7 means
The start/stop button, reverse/reinforcement stitch button
or the thread cutter button was pressed while no thread
cassette was installed. If the start/stop button is pressed before the sewing machine is correctly set up or if an operation is performed
incorrectly, an error message appears in the stitch indicator. Follow the instructions that appear.
If you press (Stitch selection key) or do the operation correctly while the error message is displayed, the
message disappears

Singer Patchwork C4 error

If it's brand new, it should have some paper work with it. The manual will most likely have an error code list. Also, it should have a troubleshooting guide, and mention how to reset your machine. When in doubt, I usually turn off the machine, and unplug it. Wait about a minute, and then plug back in, and turn back on, and that might reset it back to it's original format. Then carefully rethread the machine. Or another way to try it would be to thread it before you turn it back on. If you lack the paper work, most of the time you can type your brand and model #, into a search engine, and it will give you access to the error codes, and reset, and other instructions. The main problem with threading a machine, is making sure the thread catches on all the proper places and in the right order. Some of the places are hard to "see", and if the sensor doesn't sense that it is in place, it won't work. On any machine, even the older ones, I generally hold each sides of the thread as I thread it, to make sure it does "catch", into the proper places. (that is, if that is the case), but it could be at the bottom thread, below the needle too, so check that also.

Comunication error


At first turn the machine off, and then press the start button, reverse button and auto lock button at the same time.

-Turn the machine back on while still pushing the three buttons. After the machine has powered on, release the buttons.

-Press the + sign at the bottom of the screen, continue pressing each + sign as it appears. The machine will display a "Test Complete" message, turn off your machine.

-Wait 5 to 10 seconds before powering your machine back on, your machine will run through a diagnostic test and repair any issues it finds.

If this doesn't work;

Have you set up communication is to the "COM Port" designation within Customizer/Digitizer.

Go to >ScanCard >Communication Settings > choose the COM Port you want to use (find out what COM port the cable's using by going to your Start/task Bar in Windows>Control Panel >System >Hardware >Device Manager >Ports (COM & LPT).
There, you should be able to see what port your cable's using.

Hope this helps

When my Janome Memory Craft 4800 is turned on, I get this on the display "Error #1"

I notice others on the internet have suggested its a threading error. Try cutting the thread at the reeel and pulling towards to needle to clean all the guides.

Error 1 message will not leave

Hi - first, check your manual to see if the error is described somewhere. Follow the instructions. If the manual tells you to take the machine in for repair, try a couple things first.

Often when your needle starts to shudder, the thread is caught on something somewhere along the sewing path. Turn off your machine, change your needle, take all of the thread out of the machine and rethread it. Then remove your bobbin to make sure that there is nothing stuck in the bobbin case, or in the area where you insert your bobbin into the machine. Look around the sewing area to see if something looks out of place.

After you insert a new needle and rethreaded your machine, and before you turn the machine back one, try using the wheel to make a few stitches manually. Watch your sewing thread to make sure it is feeding evenly. If the needle does not move up and down correctly, or if you hear a grinding or bumping sound, you probably need to take the machine to be repaired. Otherwise, turn your machine back on. If the error message is gone, try sewing slowly for several inches - if all seems well, increase the speed a little at a time. If anything seems off to you while you sew - stop sewing immediately and look very carefully to see if you can find a problem.
