What light bulb fits 4300 Morse sewing machine

The Morse 4300 and 4400 use the same small 15W screw in light bulb as many other sewing machines. This is one vendor: . Another source is .

I hope this helps. However, if you have a bulb in the sewing machine, take it out and confirm that it is the screw in type. (If there is no bulb, look at the socket for some turns for threading in a bulb.) If the bulb or socket doesn't have threads, then look for a 15W push and twist bulb at sewing machine parts suppliers.

Hi, I have a Brother 1034d serger and it's practically new bought it in December last year and just started using it I made 8 skirts and the light bulb keeps blowing. I went to the store Lowe's and found a...

the main problem with blowing light bulbs on sewing machines is arcing caused by a loose ground that touches on the side of the bulb base as it screws in
disconnect the power from the wall sacket
use a suitable implement and bend that ground piece back towards the center of the holder so that you have a resistance when screwing in the new bulb
The arcing is in fact power fluctuations that have spikes or surges and bulbs do not take kindly to that sort of power problems
Only the bulbs from sewing machine spares shops should be used as general purpose household bulbs are not always successful because of the vibrations caused as the machine is sewing

Why does the built in light go out as soon as you start sewing and comes back on when you stop?

sounds like there is a short in the wiring somewhere in the machine, it would be a good idea to have it checked

Need to know how to change the light bulb

There are lots of different bulbs and different ways of removing them. Some just push in, some are push and twist, some screw in. Call a shop that sells your brand (have your model number ready) and they will sell you a bulb and show you how it goes in.

Light goes out when I start to sew

This may or may not help.. first UNPLUG it..then unscrew the light bulb and look at the base of the bulb socket.. you should see a tang there ( small tab) that makes contact with the bulb.. sometimes that gets compressed to a point that it won't make electrical contact with the bulb or intermittent contact and the bulb flickers.. You may also have a loose wire on the socket terminals too.. Depending on your electrical skil level, you may or may not want to look into repairing that yourself.. Hope this helps..
