    I hope so, nothing is made like it used to be. I have a fw221, still works like a dream, a 99K and treadle-love them guess I will be using them while this one is away. Sad thing is, I only use this machine for piecing and binding. Brought the brother out to do the backing of CWIP, which I generally save for embroidery. Hope they don't have it long. I really like it, but with all of the plastic, maybe I should use the 99K instead to piece, I would hate to have to pull the Juki off the frame.

Any suggestions, I have removed bobbin and casing, cleaned and changed the needle, still nothing????
    Well, took my machine into the service center, repair man said that the belt either broke or came off (sounded like this is a common occurance), he would have to crack her case open and then would call if anything else is wrong. Sounds like an easy fix. Hooray. She should be home in less than two weeks.

    Something similar happened to me on my Janome 11000SE and I was in a panic. I took it in to the repair person. She oiled it and said the wick was missing (that's the little piece of fuzz that looks like lint in the bottom of your bobbin area). Now it works fine.

    go on line and find a group for your brand of machine and post the question. In most cases there will be someone with the answer.
    I don't read above where you said what machine you have.

    Yeah, my baby is done and I can pick her up on Saturday. It will be a big push on Saturday but I have to have it back...I miss her so much. Besides I have been piecing a top on my brother, but it's somehow just not the same.

    Well, she's home...all that was wrong with it was the screws inside were loose and caused it to jump timing. But it was covered under warranty. I am so happy to have her home, have to take DH out to dinner with the kids for his BD but she will be back to work later/tomorrow.

    I am so glad it was a simple fix. There's nothing more frustrating than not knowing what's wrong and how to fix it. I'm glad you're back in business:-)
