Hi,

I got my machine back yesterday, which stayed 2 days at my dealer for

it's 1st annual service,to find out the bobbin sensor is switching off

every 40stitches or so,is this normal after a service?will the problem

fade by itself or shall i retun it back to the dealer?i was expecting

the it will be in it's best performance after a service!

Thank you

Susana

Most of the time, my bobbin sensor just gets turned off! Even after the

tuneup, I still havent had much luck with it! It is just not worth the

bother. That is too bad considering the cost of the machine and

embroidery unit! Do other's who own the 730 still have this problem?

The sensor on my 730 has always worked perfectly. And the needle threader as well! :)

CJ Have you "Tinkled" today?

I do and they turned it off but there may be a newtech at the shop now. When I take mine in, I will see if they can fixit. Don't know why I think I need it (other than I paid for it) since Iused to run out of bobbin before the machines got so smart.Mar

I have had my 730 about 3 years. It has been in for service and to address the bobbin sensor complaint as you have. I live more than 1.5 hrs from the dealer and have to depend on others to take and pick up my machine due to my health. I of course was told when it was returned that it was fine.......not so! When embroidering all goes smooth and then it beeps and stops with the check message. I have gotten used to simply hitting the start button again and as inconvenient as it is dealing with the piece once the bobbin actually does run out by hitting the broken thread button and backing up to where it messed up. Sometimes it takes a bit to stop I am certain because I have ignored the warning the first time and over rode it. Super inconvenient!!! I have heard many folks complain with just this trouble. I am in VA, southwest part. If there is a cure, I'd love to know---once and for all!!!Carol M

Hi Pam, My machine goes for its annual cleaning tomorrow. One of the problems to be solved is the message that always comes on when I embroider saying "Check bobbin, clean bobbin." etc. After checking all the potential problems, I still get the message. All I really want turned on is the "bobbin empty signal". I continue embroidering by leaving the message on the screen and re-pushing the "start" button. I agree about the cost, and it is very annoying. We'll see what jappens......Ginny

I got my 730 in Nov of 2007 and it has always had the sensor problem.

I have not had it in for a check up yet but have had the sensor

turned off for several months. Amy

Something to consider: I'm not sure that the bobbin sensor going

off or the machine giving bobbin error messages are always about

the sensor. I resently started having that problem...a lot. The

culprit was that the machine was actually out of time. because of

a bad belt.

Tell me Cheryl, or anyone. When the springy black thing in thebobbin is in correctly, does it look higher in the middle or is that backward? Lindajello@... Southern ladies don't drink; wesip............a lot.

Hi again,

To those who are so frustrated with the bobbin sensor problem,I'd like

to say that this is not a normal situaion in the machine,you can simply

by pass it by leaving the message on screen and continuing, but that's

not practical and especially when the bobbin ran out of thread...what

i'm trying to say is that this sensor was designed to work as a clock

and there are some reasons for the problem( not necessarily that the

sensor need to be changed,it could be a very simple obstacle, Jim Snork

mentioned a lot of these problems in a previous post, which in return

allows me, when i took it back to my dealer today to focus on that

specific issue(the bar that lock the bobbin door was fixed wrongly

after the service)

So don't give up and live with the problem,just remember there are

solutions for all these troubles and it worth taking a trip to the

dealer to fix it and enjoy the most wonderful machine ( I'll keep

saying this until i try the 830:) )!

Thank you so very much Jim,

And thank you to a wonderful, supportive group!

WOW So, if you can get it fixed I guess we should be able to as well. Repeat trips are so difficult for those of us who don't travel well and have a distance. It is easier to just put up with the trouble. Thanks for the encouragement--I plan to make yet one more trip!!!!!Carol M

Hi Carol,

All the best in your next trip to your dealer, trust me it worth the

bother!
