The light on my KH970 computer display is so weak that it is almost impossible to see. I think there was a letter once in MKM about a solution of the problem, but I can’t find it. Can anyone help?
My carriage jams knitting the first row. I don’t know what I am doing wrong. Should I use three colours together or alternate them? I am using Tension 10.
I got my Brother KH 836 machine out to knit up some left over wool to make myself a jumper. After lots of attempts with the ribber (the rib carriage kept coming unhitched!) I made the back and was nearly at the front neck shaping when the carriage jammed. It would knit right to left okay, but moving left to right it jammed in the middle every time. After a lot of shoving and a LOT more swearing, I got it moving again to finish the row, but after about ten more rows of this I gave it up as a bad job. It moves freely in each direction without the sinker plate, but not with it on. I’ve prodded, poked, sworn a lot more, thought I’d sorted it, but after about 15 rows it happened again. Can anyone give me a clue as to what might be the problem? I feel like taking the whole lot to the tip!
I have had this machine given to me and its in full working order complete with manuals and pattern books. I have briefly been on a machine knit course through university so I know all the basics, but I wanted to expand my knowledge and start making! I’ve followed the instructions to the dot in setting it up and at first it would do a quick cast on (right to left) and on the way back it would just miss the needles and not stitch. After searching the internet and asking friends they mentioned the sponge bar..It was completely flat! I got some draft excluder and changed it in hope it would work! Now its not picking up and stitches either way and its driving me insane! All the settings and dials are correct. I’ve checked the carriage brushes and wheels for wrapped thread and there isn’t any. I don’t know where to go next with it!? If anyone can help it would be amazing.
Does anyone have a machine knitting pattern for a garment with a hood please?
I have had several unsuccessful attempts to machine knit a sweater with a ‘V’ neckband. Can anyone suggest an easy method please.
I was about to programme a pattern into my Brother 950i using a Mylar sheet when it suddenly stopped working. I can still use the built-in patterns but can’t input my own. Can anyone give me any advice please?
I have just done a sample piece of circular knitting for the first time on my Toyota KS901 and KR501 ribber. I used 3-ply and tension 4/4. The trouble is that both edge stitches for the full length of the tubular piece are very untidy and any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Very kind regards.
Can anyone help with advice on this? I don’t know if I’m doing something wrong, or if the PE1 is faulty. I’ve followed the instructions in the manual and everything seems to be okay, but when I click the inspection button light off and press = on the controller it doesn’t feed the card through the reader to read it into the controller. The display says okay but there’s nothing read into the controller because the card doesn’t move.
Thanks for any help.
