    First unplug the machine and plug it back in in a few min then check the bobbin area for a small thread that may be caught, take the bobbin out re thread replace with a new bobbin, If that doesn't work I do not have the answer!

    Hello, and welcome from Idaho!

    Once you get the bobbin out. Clean it really well and be sure to oil it in all of the places the book tells you. This machine requires a lot of oil.

    Greetings from snowy Colorado. I think this is the machine I have on my frame. I luckily have not had any problems with mine (haven't really used it that much). I will read my instructions to see if i can find somthing that might help. Have you contacted the dealer you bought it from? They should be able to help.

    I've had 2 arabs, 5 qtrs and 2 paints. Don't have on right now (miss my babies!!!) Have fun here!!

    We have had qt horses,paints, and now only have the 3 arabs.
    one is 7 months old. he is cutie and has a lot of back ground.We are trying to sell ours. we don't have the time for them like we should.
    I bought the frame and machine from a private party and it was brand new but she didn't know anything about it or even used it.
