I got an Atlas today. It didn't have a belt, so I bought one and installed it easily and cleaned it up (it was a m-e-s-s and looks so pretty now!). I ran some fabric through, and I can't figure out how to make the stitches bigger. It makes pretty itty bitty stitches.
Second problem is that the motor will run for a few seconds, then stop. I don't think it's an electrical issue (the cords look good).
I'm wondering if it's even worth messing with. I can get a refund for the machine, but not the belt or the hour I spent cleaning her!!
I'd attach pics, but she looks just like this one http://stitchnerd.wordpress.com/2011...hine-a-review/
