You all know Paco, my embroidery machine. Well he developed a very nasty case of the hiccups.
The tension went out of whack. I did the adjustments suggested in his manual, nothing changed.
So I called the local Brother repair place, explained what was going on. She promptly tells me it will cost $124.00 to look him over and fix the problem. And that their turnaround time is a week out.
Well after supper, I went back into to have a chat with ol' Paco. I took the bobbin area apart once again. Set the tension back to where it was originally, set the top tension back.
And what do I spy??????
A tiny piece of lint the size of a little silver pinhead. Stuck between the plastic case and the metal area the thread slips through. I pulled it out with a pair of tweezers. Put everything back together, loaded a clean hoop and tried again.....SUCCESS !!!
Paco no longer has the hiccups.
