Brother PR600 Repairs & Service

This Brother PR600 came in for repairs a short while ago. This PR600 has endured something of a hard life and hasn’t been kept in the best of conditions.

Brother PR600 Repairs & ServiceAs you can see it has been stripped for examination and what we found wasn’t good. Rust and corrosion on the main top shaft and a number of the bearings and a number of issues with the circuit boards and electrical systems indicate that this PR600 has not been well maintained.

This particular Brother PR600 will require quite a bit of work and a number of new parts to put it back in good working condition. Should our customer decide to spend the money we will set to work and have their embroidery machine up and running (and earning) once again.

Always keep your Brother PR embroidery model in a dry environment and if you keep it in a garden shed/workroom make sure there is no damp seeping in to harm your investment. Regularly clean the raceway and remove any embroidery threads or build up of lint and add a drop of oil every few days.
