Warning: Turn the machine off before setting Test Mode:
You should read the entire process before beginning.

2. Access the dip switches on the control module.
On my machine, I took a screw off of the back of the module.
3. Insure the machine is off!
Set the bottom switch to the right most position.
(DSW1-1 only to ON)
4. Turn the machine back on.
The machine should now show TEST MODE on the display.

The machine should now show Test menu with #1 = Panel.
6. Press the SET key again.
The machine should now show Panel menu.
7. Navigate to the MAINTENANCE selection (#5).

This selection should yield an encoded value:

XXX YYY ZZZ

where:
XXX = billions
YYY = millions
ZZZ = thousands

The number is displayed using a ‘CHARLESTON’ code, where

C=9, H=8, A=7, . . . O=1, and N=0.

C H A R L E S T O N
9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 0

i.e., the code: NNN NTC ERL == 29,465,000 stitches to date.

9. Write down the displayed value.
10. Turn the machine off.
11. Set the bottom switch to the left position.
(DSW1-1 to OFF).
