Today I picked up my new 6600. I got home, set it up and started
sewing. I decided to just wind a couple bobbins, thread it and sew
some lines of stitches to play with it. I sewed straight, zig zag
and a few decorative stitches, I started figuring out how to use the
thread cutter, the modes to select stitches etc.
After about 20 minutes, all of a sudden the needle started bump-bump-
bump sounds and the LCD screen said "STOP FOR SAFETY REASONS". I
stopped, waited a bit, turned the machine off, waited, turned it back
on and the same thing happened. Hmm...the manual made me think there
was thread caught in the hook and race, so I took the plate off,
bobbin out, etc. to clean it. No thread.
Turn the machine back on, and the same thing happened. Then the LCD
screen said E5 ERRROR. According to the manual, "The machine is out
of order due to a problem in the control Circuit" " Contact the
service center or the store from whom the machine was purchased".
Lovely. 20 minutes of sewing and I need to start taking advantage of
my free service.
I am NOT happy.
