Last week when my parents were in town. I took the top panel off of my Juki to see if my dad could figure out where the wiring was off causing the light to not work. (aka a problem not big enough to pay for it to be fixed).
My repair guy at Vogue told me to open it up and see if I could see anywhere that the mechanical parts were rubbing on that wiring circuit. Dad works with electric / wiring etc... so why not?
Well first off WHOA there's a lot going on in there! I was nervous like a parent would be while their child was in the operating room for a minor surgery. I was worried about things not being put back where they were supposed to be.
|Those little whitish loops up there are the oil wicks.|
The oil wicks are AWESOME! lol. I'm not sure why I didn't think of them looking like that... but they soak up the oil and gently deliver it to the moving parts inside.
We did not find any weak or damaged parts in the wiring... so it's probably something in that control panel... not worth messing with to fix. It looks like I'll be looking for a new light source soon!
We got the machine put all back together and tested everything to be sure!
She's working just perfectly - but still no light.
I'd take a perfect stitch over a light any day!
