When i press on the controller, the sewing machine won't start, if I jiggle the wire going into the controller, it will go at times. Could it be a loose wire in the controller?

Starting to sew basic stitch


You need to know how to thread the upper thread, wind thread onto a bobbin, and install the bobbin in the machine.

Be sure to lower the presser foot onto the fabric you are going to stitch.

Then press on the foot control pedal (like a gas pedal in a car). The harder you press, the faster it will stitch.

There are a lot of web sites and videos available. But, you should probably read the machine's manual.

Comunication error


Hi,

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

Slacken the stop motion as if to wind a bobbin and press on the foot control, if the motor runs really fast then you have either thread stuck in the bobbin case area or you may need to oil the machine

USB drive does not regularly read the USB flash


I have a Designer I USB that suddenly started not reading the usb stick that came with the machine. I was terrified that my machine was going bad, but I always start with the cheapest solution first. I bought a new usb stick, loaded the designs from the old one into my software then loaded everything on the new usb stick. My machine reads it every time so far. I replaced the usb stick about 3 months ago and have not had another problem since. I don't know if this is your problem, but usb sticks can go bad and since they are so cheap, I would try this first.

Ok! Thats a good one. Just try using your hand and work with it together with the pedal . You just need to make sure that your machine is properly oiled and keep on moving you probaly dont use it as often just every day just keep on using it until it gets a motion going every day about 5 minutes. Ok!

Kenmore foot peddle going too fast to sew


The problem is either in the foot control or there is a short in your wiring. You can replace the foot control and hope that's where the problem is or Take it to a technician to be sure..The foot control will probably cost around $30-$50.
