I work on Barudan, and Melco embroidery machines however I am not certified, and/or trained on these machines. I know the mechanical sides of the machines well and still learning the electrical and software. I would be happy to work on your machine and in most cases I can repair them, However, I cannot guarantee that I can repair these machines.

Neo-Chinese Machines:

Around  2008 a new type of Chinese machine emerged that is different and better than the older Dahoa based machines. I provide embroidery machine service, Repair, and Training on these new Chinese machines. The following is a list of the Neo-Chinese machines that I am familiar with. 

  • Avance'
  • Pantograms GS1501
  • Pro Capsule
  • Ricoma

Please look at this article for more information on the Neo-Chinese Machines.

Chinese Dahao based embroiodery machines:

I provide Embroidery Machine Service, Repair, and Training on most Chinese machines using Dahao operating software including Aemco, Avance', Butterfly, Consew, Dublin, Feiya, Highland, Mesa, Meistergram, Prodigi, and Yamata. These are chinese machines and for the most part use the same operating software and are built from the same blueprint.

Older Machines   

I enjoy working on embroidery machines but found that I cannot guarantee that I can fix all machines.  Some machines, especially older machines, and ones that have been worked on by other technicians, sometimes present unique problems.

I have a fellow technician I work with sometimes that says “I will wash your car, mow your lawn, or work on your embroidery machine. But, I charge the same amount for any service call.” Sometimes older machines present unique and interesting problems. Some of these machines I call my ZIP CODE MACHINES because I can repair one component of these machines and something else entirely unrelated may break before I get out of the Zip Code.   Some of the issues that I encounter are:

  • Older repairs done by other technicians or DIY Owners
  • Out of date technology.
  • Parts are not available.
  • Technical support may no longer be provided by their company.
  • The company may no longer be in business.
  • I am trained on machines that were built after 2007.

The bottom line is I will do my best to repair your machine but I cannot guarantee that I can repair these older machines. I will be happy to work on them, but I must charge for the time and expenses that it takes to stay in business.

White Lithium Grease is horrible, no good, very bod stuff.

White Lithium Grease is horrible, no good, very bod stuff. It works great on Farm Tractors and conveyor belts but should not be kept in the same room with an embroidery machine.

Emergency Repair Kit

Nothing is worse than having a technician arrive at your business and after a brief look he tells you we must order parts. The repair is delayed, additional expenses of return service, and the lost use of the machine gets expensive. I have created a list of the most common parts and suggested things that may need to be replaced on a machine.
