Default NQ1600E issues?

Hi, I am new to this forum and I am having some issues with my NQ1600E embroidery machine. It has served me well for about 5 years. But lately it seems to be having so many problems. Thread shredding, thread getting caught on the hook race, and breaking needles. I have had it in the shop for a check up and cleaning last summer. It was running louder, but they said nothing was wrong. I have put over 5 million stitches on it. I am just getting frustrated with these intermittent issues and I am not convinced there is nothing wrong with it. I live 60 miles away from the dealer who told me nothing was wrong with it, and I am not excited about spending another $100+ to tell me nothing is wrong. Has anyone else had any of these issues with their machine? If so, what did you do about it? I live in Tennessee between Knoxville and Nashville, closer to Knoxville. Thanks so much!

Hello & Welcome!

Have you stitched this design before? Issues?

What needle type and size are you using?

What type of bobbin, stabilizer, and fabric are you working with for the project?

What kind of thread? On a stand or on the spool spindle on the machine?

I don't think it is the machine. Most likely it's a combination of techniques or products that are causing the issues. Most common are needle issues. I like a Micro-Tex 80/12.

How often are the needles changed? LQS recommends every 8 hours of sewing/embroidery to change them.

I learned exactly what to use and what not to. But thanks for the thoughts. 🧐
