Are you talking about a communications program on your computer that talks to your Arista? Your question is unclear so I'm not sure what problem you're describing here. However, if you're saying you have a problem with a program you installed on your computer to communicate with Arista... then Un-install the program from your computer. Use the "Uninstall" option, OR go to "Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs" and uninstall the Arista program from there. Then REBOOT your computer and re-install the Arista program. Removing and reinstalling programs like this almost always makes them work properly again.

Husqvarna sewing machine freezes and stops sewing

Is it a mechanical machine or computerized? If mechanical, it could need a good cleaning and oiling. Mechanical machines need to be oiled, and if not, the old oil solidifies and prevents the mechanical parts from moving.

After about three minutes, the machine freezes. The power stays on but it will not run.

Sounds like the machine needs oiling. Get the proper oil from a sewing shop (not a department store) and put a drop of oil on every metal-on-metal moving part you can find.

My brother CE 4000 sewing machine freezes. After some tinkering I can sew a little then in happens again. It makes a shuddering noise then freezes and shows an E6 error message?

Turn off the power and remove the needle and presser foot.

Remove the needle plate, bobbin and bobbin case.

Clean the shuttle and surrounding area.

Replace everything.

Make sure the flat side of the needle faces to the back of the machine.

Raise the presser foot and re-thread the machine.

Usb freezes up

If you're trying to see the embroidery designs on the stick, the embroidery unit has to be on the machine to view the designs in the larger size, so be sure to have it hooked up. If you're trying to select the regular stitches and the screen freezes, you need to take it in for service. You have a 5 year electrical / computer warranty on parts if you are the original purchaser. There will be a labor charge if it's over 1 year old.

There are 3 main fixes for a freezing SE.
1> Have the latest 12501 update installed, the 12124 had a problem.
2> make sure you have the right hook (the 2 older hooks have this problem.
3> The newer tension assembly with the grounding strap needs to be in the SE as well.
4> there were only suppose to be 3 but if your screen gets weird when it freezes, it could be the video transformer

My bobbin winder starts and then freezes and an alarm sounds-

Try to sew slower. In my sewing class the bobbin always freezes, and if I go slower it works better sometimes.
