Question about Brother Sewing Machines
Well, AC/DC motors do "seizing" quite well in fact.
If you were supposed to oil it prior to the failure, they most likely will not work now! (Bearings are shot)
BUT.....Lady Luck is always hiding, so you never know.
Tear that dude down, and give it some 7-in-1 oil. Spin the motor BY HAND. See if she will "free spin". If she feels like a 6 year old fighting a catfish, it will be a "no go, no fix".
But if she WILL spin after that......give her a couple of drops extra, put it back together, and see how long she lasts.
And then keep on oiling it.
Granted, I can't tell you exactly WHAT seized your sewing machine up, OTHER than motors are motors, and bearings fail when they get dry. In this case, you might get lucky!
