    Rae Downing@ladyraestewart, I hope you see this post:

    My old 14U Series Singer is doing kind of the same thing that you wrote about 2 years ago with the popping noise when sewing thicker fabrics and then the needle thread coming out of the needle. (that’s is pretty amazing to me that it unthreads itself right out of the eye of the needle!). I am not breaking any needles, though. After this happens, it doesnt sew anymore. Ive got to cut the needle thread, rethread it and wait until it happens again. Anyway, I was wondering if you ever figured out what the problem was so that I can see if I am having the same issue. Thanks a lot.

    I have a Husquvara Viking 905 serger. I had been sewing for a while when suddening the motor stopped. The light is on so power is going to the machine. There was no sudden sound. I can only assume it may have overheated and the motor seized. I have taken things apart, turned everything off then on again. Let it cool for hours and still nothing.

    Sounds like a job for your local service center! I know nothing about machines or sergers and can’t offer any help or suggestions, but I do know that it’s enormously beneficial to have someone knowledgeable who can service your machines. It’s a good idea to have them tuned up and serviced every year at the minimum and worth every penny in frustration avoided! Good luck with it. I have to send mine to the Netherlands for servicing and costs costs a LOT but it’s worth it.

    Thank you! I contacted a repairman today and he had me send photos of the motor so will see what he suggests.
    All the best 💗
