Avancé Embroidery Machine Support
You may notice that the FIRST thing that any of our tech support personnel will ask during any help session is:
“Have you been to training?”
The reason they do that is simple; operating an embroidery machine, sewing out a design, choosing the right supplies are all inter-related. So getting trained one problem at a time is a recipe for frustration, not success.
You can schedule training here.
How Support Works:
Step 1: Use the Troubleshooter below. Answer yes or no questions and follow video instructions to the most common issues.
Step 2: If the Troubleshooting steps didn’t help, ColDesi has an advanced tech support ticketing system we use to make sure everyone gets the help they need as quickly as possible. When you complete the Ticket form it is put into the queue for the next available qualified technician. Because some days we get more support requests than others, and some problems take more time to solve than others, our response time varies.
TIP: Include a detailed description of the problem AND photos or videos if you can.
It’s VERY important to us that you get back up and running as quickly as possible, so you will hear from us as soon as possible.
