I am currently have trouble with my Singer 9940. I don't know if some of you have one.
The trouble is the machine keeps giving me a warning that something is wrong. First it shows the pedel symbol the the thread symbol. I have replaced the needle, new coates thread, I have several different types of thread all nice thread not cheap, cleaned both top and bottom, used canned air, changed presser feet. Nothing seams to work. It will sew about 10 stitches and then give the warning then pic back up and sew 10 more the alarm again. I have also changed the settings. The stitches are perfect.
Has anyone ever had this to happen? It's driving me nuts.
nuts in Alabama:shock:
