Hi I own a Brother KH 965 and as of today, will not even switch on. I have checked all connections and I know there is power into the plug, but when I attach it back to the machine, nothing. Can anyone enlighten me as to where I can start to see where the problem may be please.
If no lights come on at all, it sounds like you have a bad ac adapter. One of testing is to borrow the same ac adapter from someone that also has the kh-965 and try it out.
thanks for that, we have checked the adapter and it shows there is power in it, but attaching back to the machine, nothing lights up.
thank you so much, I will download.
Most of the Brother electronic machines have a fuse in them. Perhaps the fuse has gone. Good luck, hope you Re able to. Get it going again.
thank you to all those that responded to my request, I am happy to say that it was the fuse.
Thanks for reporting back. I'm glad Rainbirdoz suggested that it could be the fuse. That's an easier replacement than the ac adapter. :thumbup:
This makes me wonder how many machines have been taken to the dump/tip because whoever thought that the electronics had gone down. I have heard quite a few say "oh I took it to the tip" because so called experts had told them "it's old now, the computers don't last forever". This just proves that sometimes it's something simple and a quick fix. Even if the boards gone down it's still worth having a go at repairing it.....never give up at the first hurdle and don't believe all you are told.
that is so true, I was probably ready to take it to the dump also, but with all the advice given to me, the fix was very easy, 50c.
I found this thread in a search and I am having the same problem. Where is the fuse located
There is also a battery in the 965 (at least there is in my 965i) My sister passed away 2 yrs ago and left me 3 machines and her 965i was dead....this is how I found out. Apparently the batteries are soldered in, not making it too easy to switch them. I've been told they can be bought at Radio Shack (in U.S.) but they should be put in by someone who knows knitting machine repairs.
Could someone chime in on the location of a fuse on a KH 965? I ve searched it and cannot find a fuse anywhere.
I am not familiar with the 965 but I assume the electronic components are in the same place as the 950i etc.
There is a fuse inside the machine and there are 2 capacitors all of which may need replacing. I had a 'no power' fault and had to replace the capacitors and fuse. You need to be able to solder the capacitors in place (I had a very helpful electrician fixing my washing machine at the time).
The following link should help:http://www.machine-knitting.net/machineknittingnet/how-to-fix-a-brother-kh930-knitting-ma..
The above is a clear and easy to follow tutorial showing you how to do it (with lots of photos).
Hope this helps.
