Does anyone own a Euro-Pro Model 9106 sewing machine?

Or, even if you know about them.  What is your opinion of them?

I bought one about five years ago but never used it until a few weeks
ago.  It straight stitches beautifully.  And, I did have it
overcasting very nicely also.  Just yesterday, it decidedit only
wanted to straight stitch and it jams with every other stitch
pattern.  The straight stitch tensions are perfect.  I changed the
needle to a brand new one.  I took out the bobbin and re-inserted it
and rethreaded the whole shebang but nothing worked.

Any suggestions?

I still have my old reliable Singer that is pretty limited on stitch
patterns.

I have a Euro-Pro Model 9106.  I bought it in April,
2004.  It has been a great machine.  I haven't had
any trouble wit it.  Have done lots of sewing and quilting
on it.  As for your problem, maybe clean out the bobbin
holder and then turn the machine off and on.  Hope this
helps.

Ron Anderson, our resident sewing machine guru, has said that they
aren't bad machines, but that repair parts for them are not available.
So they're fine for as long as they last, then they're landfill.

The old reliable Singers, on the other hand, just keep on keeping on,
and there are repair parts in the surprisingly few instances when they
are needed.  If your old Singer is one of the pre-plastic era ones,
there's little that can go wrong that can't be fixed with a minor
adjustment.

Thank you for responding.  I kinda figured this would be the case.

Hi,

Thank you for your response to my sewing machine problem.  I packed
the darned thing up and put it away in a closet and some day will most
likely toss it.  I brought out my 31-year-old gear driven Singer which
still runs beautifully.

I just came upon this post. It is now end of 2013 and I have had this Euro  
Pro machine since about 2004. I do a massive abount of sewing. It has worke
d beautifully. I hope you gave the machine another try. Sounds like it migh
t have been a stitch selection issue but a local machine repair person woul
d have been able to help you. You can find a repair person that doesn't hav
e to be for a specific brand. I just had to order my first part (I broke th
e auto thread grabber tip thing) from a1sewingmachine.com. I have been sewi
ng for over 40 years and have owned older and newer Singers, White (was not
 impressed) and even a Kenmore. All have served their purpose. I believe it
 is just what you like/need or want to try at that time.
