Brother Embroidery Machine Help

2480 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Brian
I was wondering if anyone could help me...

I have a Brother 1204 4 head machine, and for some reason, when i try and run the machine at 950spm, it won't go over around 800. I am embroidering badges i have done many times at 950, but for some reason it keeps dropping between 750-800, even on the complex fills. I haven't (intentionally) changed any settings, any ideas?

It could be a built in slowdown for longer stitches. Check the manual and see it it mentions this.

On my SWF, as stitch length gets longer, machine slows down.
It is part of the design.

My HAPPY on the other hand does not, so if I have longer stitches and I have speed up high, it tends to shake a little.
I just slow it down and all is good again. When I say long (on the HAPPY) I mean 10mm or more.

Brother could have a similar set up.
Get in touch with Juan at Brother Service and he will be able to advise you on what to do.
