Parameters for Chinese Machines

Hello!

I found your website because i was reading articles about chinese embroidery machines. So i found out that you know much about them. So maybe i can ask you few questions about them directly.

Here we have all kinds of machines, also chinese ones. As you wrote, some work great, some not that perfect. Now my question is: When a customer call you for service or help, from where do you get all parameters for the chinese machines to check and set? I repair all our machines by myself, but for chinese machines i just can try and check if all works. For Happy machines (as example) you get a complete service manual with every single parameters. For chinese machine it seems that such stuff doesnt exists. 

Regards from Austria,

Johann
