Is there just a bit of thread wedged in there and hidden? That happened with my Viking Rose once and after I teased it out with tweezers, the message stopped.

You might check to see if a small piece of thread or even some fuzz is lodged around the cutting blade.

Yes...check for even a tiny piece of thread...and change the needle and check the bobbin holder for any nicks.

Did you turn the power off and wait a minute or so? I have this problem periodically with my Sapphire...very maddening!

If you've gotten your machine back can you tell us what was wrong? It would be helpful to know in case others of us have the same problem. Thanks:)
