I sent my machine out for repair and the sevice person said I had a burr in my double needle. Has this happened to anyone?

What brand and model of machine do you have and why did you send it out for repair?

A burr in an actual needle? I don't think I understand unless you had a double needle in the machine and it had a nick or a blunt spot on it...and that will make the machine act strangely. Needles often don't last that long and sometimes you get a bad one right out of the box.

I have burrs on needle plates and on presser feet from being struck by a needle.

Isn't it nice to know that it was only a needle which is easily replaceable instead of a problem with your Kenmore machine? Am so glad to hear that you got the twin needle problem solved.
