Singer 6268 - Embroidery Unit

Threaded View
Have a 1985-1987 Singer 6268 with the embroidery unit.  I can set it up to  
embroider without a problem and it will start sewing.  The problem is it do
esn't move the fabric, like the unit isn't responding.  I've had trouble ge
tting the unit positioned under the needle, but can finally get it snapped  
in place and strapped down.  Is there a chance the software is corrupted or
 that the motor in the embroidery unit is out?  The machine works great as  
a sewing machine, but it just doesn't want to move the fabric around in emb
roidery mode.
Any help would be appreciated

First off, I don't know anything about the Singer 6268.  However, I  
do have two Singer XL6000 embroidery machines, so perhaps some of my  
experience will translate to your situation.

On my Singers, the embroidery unit must be slid all the way into  
position and a lever moved to the right to engage it.  Be sure yours  
unit is fully in position and any locking-switch is engaged.

Each time I turn my machines on (in embroidery mode), there is  a  
"welcome" screen, followed by an "initialization" screen, which  
requires that I touch "OK" and the embroidery unit moves (presumably  
to make sure nothing is blocking the area).  Does your machine have  
this requirement, and if so, does the unit move?
