Yes, your machine has a problem. Without knowing the make & model, we cannot offer any advice.

This was posted on a Bernina group site. Probably good advice for other sewing machine brands as well. Wish I could give more credit to the poster but don't have more information:

I don't post much here but I am a constant lurker.

This was posted on one of my FB groups by a well respected Bernina tech.

"Bernina recently issued a technical advisory note that backs-up a post I put on FB a while back in relation to the 'regular' use of sewing machines. I previously advised that you should make a point of switching-on your machine every so-often, even if you dont want to use it, and leaving it on for an hour-or-so. This mainly applies to older electronic machines from the Activa/Virtuosa/Aurora/Artista vintages, but is equally good advice on later models. The Bernina tech advice relates to failure of electrolytic capacitors on power supply boards if unused for a long time - this applies to stock held on shelves but, equally, to machines too. I have also seen this problem on motherboard/control boards, which are much more expensive and particularly with a variety of electrolytic capacitors called tantalum. This problem is NOT unique to Bernina and is a technology problem rather than a manufacturing quality problem. This is sometimes experienced when you put away a piece of electronic equipment such as a video camera or recorder or some-such and dont use it for years and find its faulty when you get it out to use again. Modern capacitors are much better in this regard. So, if you're an 'occasional' user of your machine, of whatever make, my advice is, every 6 months, get it out, switch it on and just leave it for an hour-or-so powered-up and this should (and I emphasise 'should' !) protect it against failure of these components and save you the price of a potentially costly repair. This is especially important for the many of you who cant part with their old machines, but never really seem to get-around to using them !!"

I switched on my Rancilio 2 group E/S model without the water supply. Will be there any problem with this. I thought I heard a noise and M confussed and worried that my machine might have been damaged!!...

If it is a 110 machine it is most likely single phase, most equipment in the US(assuming you are in the US is wired single phase). If you turned it off seconds after you realized it was not connected to water you will be fine, there would be no damage to the pump. Just connect the water then turn on the first switch only when the boiler fills tunr on the middle switch.

I have a Workcentre 5050 that doesn't recognize the network controller. Does anyone have any advice or an installation Manual?

1. Turn machine off 2. After it has completely powered down, unplug the power cord from the wall. 3. Go back to the front of the machine and turn it on and then back off again (remembering to leave it UNPLUGGED from power.) 4. WAIT 60 SECONDS (Very important) 5. AFTER 60 seconds plug it back into the wall and turn it back on.
If problem persists call for service.
Hope it helps!

Hi i have an LG1437 washer and it fills up on its own without the machine being on and the drain and supply are fine, any ideas?? Regards Nick

If the machine is filling up without and electric switched on then you need to fit a new Solonoid Valve, if on the other hand the machine fills when powered up then the fault lies within the Electronic panal See Tech advice.....

Turn off the machine, and unplug the power cord of the machine from the power supply. If the problem is not resolved, contact your Canon service representative.

EMachine T6420 will only turn on to start the fans and then immediately turns back off - has Bestec ATX-300-12E power supply - do you think that's the problem

These computers have had problems with the mother board. I had one the same problem, and I did research on the INternet. Best advice.... find a replacement board which will fit this box. Then you will have to re-install the operating system with the cdrom. You may be able to repair the system.
More than likely the power supply is not the problem, but the board is suspect more than anything.

Machine stopped running, its getting power but wont run.

I would take it back to your service tech or choose another. It may be something simple that needs replacement, like a new cord. (or . . .)

Also, before thinking of buying a new machine, I would get another opinion.

If you still have warranty, use it.....!

The board for your preamp/switch/vol are made as an electric matrix. This means that several signals are coded and sent from the "frontpanel" to the amp itself. A digital signal like this will be hard for someone to measure and understand without a oscilloscope.

My advice is to clean and check all connetions (inside the amp), but mind the hazardous currents inside.
