Tin Lizzie 18 skipping stitches.

Hi, I have had my TL18, with a QBot attached, for a year, but haven't done a lot with it, mainly because the needle tends to stay down in the fabric while the machine moves around, causing the skipped stitches. Am surprised I haven't broken any needles yet. The seller doesn't seem to know what's causing this and sent new encoders but that hasn't fixed the problem, and I've tried new needles etc. At the moment I'm halfway through a job - a paying job- and it's started again. I seems to happen when the machine has warmed up. Can anyone advise? please?
