Customer: replied 2 months ago.
It's about 4 years old and I use it about once a week for about 4 hours at a time

Hi, thanks for that information.

Make sure the foot pedal is securely in place.

If it is, unfortunately you will need to bring your machine to any local sewing machine repair shot as there would be a problem on the main board with an electronic component.

Many local vacuum repair shops also fix sewing machines ;-)

I wish I had better news for you, I really do.

One other thing you can try, is to unplug your machine for 1 full hour, it May reset.

In any case, I will stick with you until this is complete please rate my service kindly.

Hi your more than welcome.

I believe you will need an experienced tech to fix this one.

But it shouldn't be very much to have it repaired.

You can try any local vacuum cleaner repair shop as a lot of them also repair Sewing Machines ;-)

If you cant find a repair shop, please let me know, and I will see if I can find you a good local shop near you.

Have a great day
