Yikes. If you connect a 120v machine to 220v... it is probably fried. Sorry.

Change 220v to 110v


You will need a transformer. If the appliance is 220V to start with, you need a step-up tranformer, that is, 110V supply UP to 220V output. The other way round, a step-down transformer.

They are sold at hardware outlets and electronics suppliers like RadioShack.

110vsinger portable sewing machine was plugged in 220v


Think about it. You burned it out by doing that. Happens quite a bit here in RV (caravan parks) which are supposed to be wired 110v 30 amps but get wired at 220v by a stupid electrician. It's hosed, dump it in the bin... or maybe sell some of the parts from it. and go buy a new machine.

My name Devi from Jakarta , Indonesia, I was buying sewing machine Brother CP 7500 from amazon, i just want to make sure, in indonesia voltage is 220V, how about CP 7500 ? is the voltage 110V or 220V ?...


Amazon is in USA so item would probably be 110 V and not suitable for you. You need to buy a machine locally or from Australia with same voltage as you, 220V. If you try to use a 110V machine you will fry the engine and electricals.

You should be able to buy the same model, just buy it in your voltage.

I have a Kenmore sewing machine Model 158, 1792280. The foot pedal is not working well; I was sewing normally and when I finished, I removed my foot from the foot pedal but the machine continue sewing. I...


Buy a new foot pedal for it, probably one of the electrical components inside the foot has failed.

There are Kenmore footcontrols for sale on www.sewingpartsonline.com. You could email them to check its right for your model if it isn't listed.

Obviously I'm assuming that you are in USA with 110 Voltage and that is what your machine is. If not and your country is 220V, you would need to source it from a reseller in your own country or another with the same voltage.

I bought singer 7422 from Brazil, so it is 110 voltage, we moved to Finland and here we have 220. My daughter connect it directly to 220V, I changed fuse as it was broken, but it broke again.


Call Singer before you plug it in again, you may wreck your machine if you have the wrong voltage. Go to singerco.com and get the phone number for your country,.Be careful and good luck

no, it will definately run fine in Australia.Electricity in South Africa is 230 Volts, alternating at 50 cycles per second which is the same as Australia. The voltage in Aus and SA will be somewhere between 220/240v most of the time.

How to change tension from 120V to 220V


If you are sending a sewing machine which runs on 120volts to a region that has a 240volt power supply you will need to get a
power step down converter that will fit into the socket of the 220volt supply ,and will have a socket that will hold the plug of the 120volt supply going to your machine.
the converter must reduce the 240v down to 110v .
