How to adjust the sensor of my tufting gun? It won’t turn off anymore.
Most likely your sensor got out of position during shipping or when you adjusted your pile height. That’s no big problem.
Unplug your tufting gun and we get started.
It might just be a stuck trigger. Check back here.
In the back of your gun, you’ll find these two thin metal plates connected to the yellow wire.
How the sensor works:
When the two little dots are connected, the gun will stop running if you don’t pull the trigger. This means if you stop pulling the trigger, the gun will always finish the current tuft/movement, just that this happens so fast that we would not realize. You’ve maybe already noticed that while turning the gear with the gun turned off it will always go back to the starting position as soon as you turn the machine back on – that’s because of what the sensor does.
How to solve the problem:
Usually loosening the small screw with your smallest allen key, tilting it a bit to the front and tighten it again will do. Make sure the two metal parts are lined up on top of each other nicely.
It might be some trial and error to find the right position but it’s an easily solved problem compared to how crazy it feels when it occurs.
You want to make sure the sliding part is going underneath the sensor and closing it.
