Can you turn the handwheel manually? Does it move freely? If not, the machine needs to be oiled. Check the manual for the proper oiling locations. Basically, any metal to metal areas require oil. Just make sure the machine is unplugged and avoid oiling the motor.

If you have a stop motion dial with little grooves all the way round the best way is to get a wide plade screwdriver, put the plade part on one of the grooves on the left hand side of the dial and give it a thump on top with your hand, that usually does the trick.

Could be threaded wrong - check manual for proper threading
Needle could be bent - check and replace if needed
Needle plate could be damaged - see if any burrs are on it if so take to service dealer and have removed
Bobbin could be wound wrong - check manual
Bobbin could be bent - if so replace.

My overlocker is 25 years old, a friend borrowed it with the manual and she lost the manual.Now every time she borrows it I have to try to adjust the tension on the 4 threads as they are all different

Singer has many of their manuals available as a PDF on their support site: . Entering the model 14, I found the link to the 14U344/14U344B/14U354/14U354B Serger/Overlocker manual. It was the seventh link (on page 1) of 33 search results. The direct link is currently .

I hope this helps. The images and directions for setting the tension for different stitches starts on page 20 (page 22 of the PDF). If you can, I'd suggest printing at least the tension information pages. If you'd like to get a printed copy, some online sewing machine part stores have the manual. One source is . The link to purchase the manual is . Alternatively, you could get the manual printed at any print shop (like Kinkos).

I've borrowed a memorycraft 300e from a friend. I've used it without incident for a few days but suddenly without any issues now whenever I turn the machine on I get an error message

Did you check the needle down button. Be honest and return it. Price one and wonder why you borrowed something so expensive. She may know what to do. But dont tinker or try to fix it. It seems like a fixable error. You probably afraid to tell her. But you stressing yourself out. If you borrow it you probably know a cheap embroidery machine is about $500. Just get it back and maybe she won't snap its probably something simple.

The machine got dropped and now it sews way too fat or dead slow sometimes not at all? it is computerized

It could be the foot control, see if you can borrow one from a friend to try. If this does not work then one of the circuit boards inside the machine has been damaged, the thing that controls this is called a potentiometer and where it is on the board may have cracked.
Circuit boards are often expensive to repair or replace, so try the foot control and if possible borrow a lead set as well.
