Error Display In Sewing machine Panel
Sewing machine or embroidery machine shows error message on computer screen.
If you perform an operation incorrectly before the machine is set, an error message will appear on the control panel. Then follow the directions from the table. If you press the stitch selection button or perform the operation correctly while this message appears, the message will disappear.
Below is a list of the most common error messages and their solutions.
|Error message||Probable cause||Solution|
|E1||You pressed the foot controller (or the start / stop button if the foot controller is not connected) or pressed the reverse stitch button with the presser foot raised.||Lower the presser foot lever before continuing the operation.|
|E2||A stitch other than the buttonhole or bar tack stitch was selected and the foot controller was pressed (or the start/stop button was pressed if the foot controller is not connected) while the buttonhole lever is lowered.||Raise the buttonhole lever before continuing the operation.|
|E3||The buttonhole or bar tack stitch was selected and the foot controller was pressed (or the start/stop button was pressed if the foot controller is no connected) while the buttonhole lever is raised.||Lower the buttonhole lever before continuing the operation.|
The reverse/reinforcement stitch button or needle position button was pressed while the bobbin winder shaft is moved to the right.
|Move the bobbin winder shaft to the left before continuing the operation.|
|E5||The start/stop button was pressed while the foot controller was connected.||Disconnect the foot controller, and then press the start/stop button. Otherwise, operate the machine by using the foot controller.|
|E6||The motor locked up because thread is tangled||
The upper thread could be tangled. Remove the upper thread and any loose threads. Raise the pressure foot, raise the needle to its highest position and rethread the machine.
Remove the bobbin and bobbin case to clean any lint or loose threads. Install the bobbin case so that the projection on it aligns with the spring. Then install the bobbin into the bobbin case.
The needle could be bent. Replace the needle making sure the flat side is facing the back.
Note / Attention!
If an error message "F1" to "F9" appears on the LCD while the sewing machine is being used, it may indicate a malfunction. Contact your nearest authorized service center.
Beeping for operations (for models that have such a beeper)
Each time you press a key, you will hear one beep. If you press a non-functioning key or perform an incorrect operation, you will hear two or four beeps (only if the model has an operation beep).
- When you press a key (correct action).
One beep will sound.
- If you perform an incorrect operation or press a non-functioning key.
Two to four beeps will sound.
- If the machine locks up, for example because the thread is tangled.
The machine beeps for four seconds and then stops automatically. Identify the cause of the problem and solve it before you continue sewing.
ADVICE: Performing periodic maintenance on your sewing machine is particularly important.
A well-maintained machine will likely run better and prevent annoying, time consuming, and costly problems later.
Order your maintenance kit here including needles, oil, brush, screwdriver, etc.
