While sewing today the clr button stopped working on my 350se. I turned the machine off and back on but don't know what to check otherwise. We had a power blip today and I can't honestly remember if I cleared settings after the blip. The power was back on so quickly I don't think our whole house generator even had time to fire up. Everything else is working fine and I can change stitches by choosing the number, I just can't clear the settings. Is this something that needs to be checked by my tech? Anyone else ever have a problem like this?

This group has answered so many questions for me before I even knew to ask them, I'm sure someone out there will be able to steer me in the right direction.

Thanks,Sue Hin north central Illinois where we are finally out of the deep freeze

So you mean the CLR button isn't working to take a stitch backto its default settings? If so, then yes your tech needs to take alook at it. Hopefully you did have the machine on a good qualitysurge protector.

What a relief. I called my dealer today and found out that I only thought the clr button returns to a default stitch of #1. It is only supposed to return to default setting within the stitch chosen, which mine does. I could have sworn that it returned everything to stitch #1 in the past, but obviously I was mistaken. And the best part is that there is nothing wrong with mine at all. And to keep it that way, I am going to get that surge protector that Kari mentioned. I unplug my sewing machines when not in used but that wont protect them if there is a surge while in use. Thank you Kari for the great advice. Sue H

This was what I was wondering when you first asked and it's acommon misconception about the CLR function. Glad there wasnothing wrong!

Unplugging the machine when it's not in use is the best course ofaction, but as you already surmised this won't help if somethingoccurs while you're using the machine and things like this can bea costly fix that can easily be prevented with a good qualitysurge protector.
