XL1000 embroidery not working properly

I can not get the embroidery function on my XL1000 to work properly. Initially, it would occasionally skip to a random location in the middle of stitching a pattern, then continue from there. Now it does it everytime I try to stich a pattern. I think it must be the controls in the sewing arm, but I have not found any help or suggestions for this. Any ideas?

Does the machine stitch OK in sewing mode? If so, the shaft in the embroidery bed may need to be oiled.

With the machine turned off, remove the embroidery bed. Turn it over and inspect the round shaft that goes from one side to the other. It is clean or does it have some black residue on it? If black, wipe it with a clean soft cloth. There are felt pads at each end of the shaft. Are they dry? They need to be oiled with a good quality sewing machine oil -- don't over do it -- just enough to lightly saturate each pad. Never use household lubricants on any part of the machine -- they usually are paraffin based and will eventually become gummy. If any oil gets on the plastic case, remove it ASAP. It can cause the plastic to deteriorate.

Inspect those pads regularly -- do not let them dry out. If you embroider every week, check the pads at least once a month.

Hi Peggy,

 

I know this want be easy for you.  I need any kind of part number you can get off the LCD screen.  Is it a display and you type the different stitch stuff into a keypad?  Or , is the LCD a touch screen that you touch the screen to select a stitch?  I do not have one of these Sewing machines, but I do Electronics repair. Is your Screen Black and not displaying anything?  I believe we can work through this and get you a repair solution. The back light may have gone out on the screen only. Please reply with more info, so that we can get you a solid solution.  By the way, Singer really does not make those anymore.  They are making a more modern Screen at this time. Usually after 5 years, the manufacturers stop making parts for a model. Good news though, we can work on repairing the one you have. Go to Ebay and see if we can buy a XL1000, or other venue to rob the parts from.

At start up machine says press needle position button. All that happens is the motor revs up then says safety feature has been activated. Any ideas?


I used this machine in my middle school classroom. That message was in the first start up of the machine, I think it just resets the machine. The larger model also has a beginning reset button that just adjusts the arm of the machine. Is the machine working fine after the reset? Hopefully "sew"
