The Brother PE-770: the Perfect Embroidery Machine To Add To Any Sewing Room!
From John M. Douthat, Founder of AllBrands:"AllBrands is a Brother Authorized Dealer and ASC Authorized Service Center for warranty repairs. We give unlimited tech support by email, fax, phone, text and cell, plus service in our shop or referral to nearest ASC (your choice). Mass merchants do not have tech service or repair departments for your equipment like we do. They are unable to help you directly, referring your operational, mechanical or electronic questions back to Brother customer service desk (not their mechanics) instead of taking care of the problems themselves. Brother and customers should expect that any problems you might have will be taken care of by the dealer who sold you the equipment, not simply by referring your requests back to the manufacturer."

Brother PE700 series embroidery machines may need to be run in after lubrication to loosen them up. Mechanical binds can occur in needle bar or take up lever assemblies. Remove the face plate (light cover) on the left of the upper arm. Put a drop of oil on the top and bottom of the needle bar shaft so it reaches the top and bottom of the needle bar frame support that holds the needle in place while it goes up and down. Also put a drop of oil on the metal to metal moving parts of the take up lever assembly (you can remove the 3x3" plastic tension cover under the lid on top with one phillips screw to see better). Rock the hand wheel back and forth until you get 360 degree movement. If the machine is still hot from running or binding, you must wait until it cools off before turning the handwheel. Lubrication and hand wheel rotation may solve initial binding problems. If binds persist, remove the embroidery arm and go into the service mode to run the machine at full speed without thread, needle, bobbin case, or embroidery unit. Push in the Start/Stop and Needle Up/Down buttons with two fingers at the same time while turning the machine on. Hold down the buttons until the numbered box service screen panel comes up. Select program #14 Speed. Push the start/stop button which will run the machine at full speed to work the oil into the needle bar frame support and take up lever assemblies.. Let it run as long as needed to increase the speed and motor rpm to maximum (you can hear the pitch of the motor increasing in tone until it levels off at 800 stitches per minute). Then put the embroidery arm back on, thread up and sew.
John, is the solution to the problem of hoop fitting on the PE770,
require adjustment of the embroidery arm bracket, polishing parts that interconnect, or
Replacing P/N XD0442051 Y carriage Plate Sub Assy on the embroidery unit arm
will take care of this problem. Brother
I am a previous customer, back in Oct 2000, when I purchased a Brother PC3000 sewing machine from allbrands. com and never regretted the decision. In fact, it was a refurbished model and I am still using today.
Now I am looking for an embroidery only machine to add to my collection. I have been researching the PE770 and am drawn to it for all that if offers for the price, but in talking with dealers, they recommend that I whatever I buy, that I buy a machine with an aluminum frame versus, I guess, plastic; to buy a machine that has some weight to it, because of the vibration that occurs with embroidery machines.
Question: With regard to the PE770, does this machine have an aluminum frame?
The Brother PE770 has a solid aluminum metal casting for holding top and bottom shafts and linkages. If fact, all the Brother dealer model machines including PE770 and PE780 embroidery only machines have this feature. It is only the low end mass merchant machines that that have plastic front and back covers for holding top and bottom shafts and linkages in place.
Vibration is not as much of a problem with embroidery only machines with fixed center needle positions (no zigzag mechanisms inside) and no feed dog mechanisms underneath.. All Brother machines are smooth running with less vibration and decibel ratings than other major brands of the same type.
If you repeat multiple images in the hoop (like small fsl earrings), will the machine cut the threads automatically when it goes from one image to the next? (Sort of like a jump stitch cut setting). I know it has an "automatic" thread cutter, but that doesn't always mean it cuts without someone pushing a button to tell it to do it.
Yes, the machine will cut the thread at the end of each design entered in the stitch field.
