If the carriage stops in the middle of a knit and gets stuck, try following these steps:
- Turn off the machine completely for at least 30 sec.
- Turn it back on and with the menu dial select the option Car +6 or Car -6 and press. The carriage should move to one side or the other. Then you can check if there are any damaged needles or jacks.
- If the carriage doesn't move, turn the machine back off and try moving the carriage manually to one side or the other. It is ok to do a bit of force. If you still can't get it to move, go to the next step.
- (See video below) Remove the green cover from the carriage and find the wheel with slots shown in the video. Start turning it slowly with your finger while you try to move the carriage with the other hand in either direction. This wheel moves the cams of the carriage, and each slot of the wheel sets the cams for the needles to do different actions (miss, tuck, knit, etc). Setting the cams with a different slot may unstick the carriage. It sometimes takes a few wheel turns to get this to work. If it doesn't work, repeat the same operation in the rear part of the carriage.
(In this example the carriage got stuck with a broken needle in the rear needle bed)
