Frequently Asked Questions

What should I do if the message with gears appears?

Cut off the upper thread, raise the presser foot, carefully lift the fabric to cut off the lower thread and any twisted threads. Do not pull! Remove the fabric. Remove the bobbin case, open the hook to check whether any thread is tangled in the hook area and remove it. Also check whether there is any thread under the needle plate. Replace the hook, bobbin case, bobbin and needle plate. Check whether the upper thread is threaded correctly and rethread if necessary.

The machine will only run slowly

There may be several reasons for this:
- The speed regulator is set to slow sewing.
- The speed was reduced during setup. In order to change this, select "Setup", "Sewing settings" and "Sewing speed control" and set the desired speed.

What is the thread cutter to the right of the machine head for?

It makes threading using the semi-automatic threader easier, since the end of the thread no longer needs to be held manually. Instead, the thread is pulled over the thread cutter  after it has been laid into  the hook of the threader. The threader is then released and the thread is pulled through the eye of the needle. The cutter is available as an optional accessory for models where it is not included as standard.

The lower thread indicator is not responding

There may be several reasons for this:
The door of the hook cover is open. Close it.
The sensor of the lower thread indicator is dirty and needs cleaning.
The lower thread indicator has been deactivated in "Setup". Select "Setup", "Monitoring functions" and "Activating the lower thread indicator".
