I’m unable to move the knit carriage across the needle bed without it jamming and there are loose needles.I bought my Brother KH881 knitting machine about 15 years ago, but I never managed to get the machine to knit and put it away. Recently I decided to set-up the knitting machine and to try to learn to machine knit. I’ve cleaned and oiled the knitting machine and I’ve replaced the needle retaining bar.
I’ve followed the instructions from the machine knitting manual in an attempt to plain knit. The knit carriage jams against the needles in B position, they’re very loose once extended beyond B position and in holding position don’t lie straight
on the needle bed.
Could this be the K carriage itself that’s faulty? Could it be the fact that the knitting machine has always been faulty?
Could you please advise further.
Many thanks from Lilian Guyers in Skelmersdale
