My knitting machine is not reading punch card correctly.?
I have a Brother 860. When using a punch card the machine picks up the second color in the wrong places. When doing tuck or lace stitches it is also not reading the card correctly. Is there an adjustment I could make to fix this. I have tried...cleaning, checked needles, inspected carriage...etc. Problem seems to be in the card reading section of the bed.
The machine is probably reading the card properly but the reason that it is miselecting needles is because the selector plates are sticking together, the plates are as thin as razor blades and they need to be perfectly clean and dry, the only thing you can do is to get it to a Brother dealer for it to be stripped down, this is one job you cannot do yourself.
