Review:
I like that the stitches are nice and even. It has plenty of different stitches. And filling the bobbins are so easy.

Troubleshooting:
I have had trouble with the cutter. Had the store fix it and still work only intermittently. I am using the bobbins that are Viking and came with my machine. Now after getting it back from the dealer, the pressure feet are crooked when I attach them. I checked the part that attatches to the "arm" and made sure it is on there right. I didn't do any heavy duty sewing that should have stressed the machine at all. I don't remember it being like that before I took it in to be fixed for the cutting mechanism.

Sounds as if you need to take the machine right back to the dealer and show them the problem you are having since the repair. Especially if all the other things were working well prior to that. I hope you have an honest dealer.

I'm so sorry you are having issues with this machine/dealer. I also have this machine and really love it. You should be able to take this back to the dealer and have them rectify the problem. Be firm and put your foot down. It is under warranty and they have to honor it.
