15. TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE

¡
Be sure to check the following before calling an authorized service station.
¡
If the suggestions given below do not solve the problem, turn off the power and contact the place of purchase or
your nearest Brother dealer.
Turn off the power switch and disconnect the power cord before carrying out troubleshooting, otherwise the
machine will operate if the treadle is depressed by mistake, which could result in injury.
* When using a clutch motor, the motor will keep turning even after the power is switched off as a result of
the motor's inertia. Wait until the motor stops fully before starting work.
