Basically, the plan works from the moment you purchase it until two years is up.
If at any point within those two years, any part in your sewing machine breaks, you are entitled to a reimbusement for the full price you purchased it for, including tax.
Here is a link to the plan on Walmart's site that gives you some more detail:

I have my mums old machine is it worth getting it serviced or just get a new one?

Just call in at a sewing machine outlet and ask them for an opinion. A lot of these older machines were very well built with quality bearings, steel gears and powerful motors. It may just need a clean.

Why won't my bobbin winder work

It could be the belt has snapped, or something else it out of adjustment. You can either get it fixed, or purchased an inexpensive bobbin winder for under $25 from WalMart online.

Why will the bobbin threader not turn?

I owned that fine machine for over 6 years, but that was common with that model (and many others), and what's happening is probably the clutch that turns off the needle action isn't engaging. Frankly, it's not worth making it work; it doesn't do a good job, and people have had threads wind around the inside of the hand wheel instead. I do a lot of troubleshooting on these machines, and I would say a great many problems are caused by poorly and/or loosely wound bobbins.

There are two easy solutions. Either buy professionally wound prewound bobbins--your bobbin is also called a Class A, by the way. The second is to purchase a bobbin winder for under $25 that does a much better job. For once thing, you can regulate the tension, and you can't on the Singer when bobbin winding. You can get them at WalMart online, and if you have it delivered either to a WalMart or to a FedEx facility like Kindo's, shipping is free.

Is this machine worth buying attachments for it. b c d cams and assorted feet? Cost would be around 50.00

Depends on how much sewing you plan to do, what kind of sewing (embroidery, etc.) and the condition of the machine. If everything else works I would invest $50. The Viking 1 machines are getting old and parts are hard to come by and may be quite expensive. If you plan to do lots of sewing, I would look around at the cost of replacement machines to make the cost/benefit analysis of repair/upgrade. Lots of people still use these machines, especially for quilting. When they are in good condition they are great machines.

Replacement lightbulb, model 1500, 12v6W

Here is the toll free number to White. 1-800-331-3164 or go to Perhaps you can order the part. I have a Sears Kenmore sewing machine. My light bulb went out after 35 years. Can you believe it?? I finally found the bulb at a local sewing machine center however, they wanted $9.00 per bulb.. Walmart, Target, Joanns etc., did not have the bulb. I called the sears part center and obtained the bulb there. The cost was $4.00 for a pack of 2. After all the hunting I did, the S&H was well worth it. Good luck and I hope this helps you.

I have singer sewing machine model 7422 for two years now. I bought it from walmart in Michigan U S A.I always had singer sewing machines .but I am not satisfied with this one at all although it is...

It's a loud machine.
If you have kids or you simply don't want anything that's noisy, then you better look for another one. This equipment produces noise than may annoy you.

Get the bobbin case fixed, and find a sewing machine store that takes trade ins.

Try to lift the guide before the bobbin winder, by 2-3 millimeters.
If you can't lift the guide, then put something between the two, (a magnet perhaps) just to lift the thread a little bit upwards during winding.

How to oil my sewing machine

Kenmore machines may have parts and manuals available on -- have the correct model number usually a 3 digit a dot and the rest of the numbers (i.e., 158.xxxx or 385.xxxx1). You will see a list, and if you click on parts or attachments list and scroll down into the parts list, there should be a manual listed as either available or not.

As to the new machines, Euro-Pro or any other, if really cheap, then my personal feeling is that they are planned to not last for a long time -- which may account for the lack of oiling instructions in their manuals. The other possible reason 'may' be that like some Viking Husqvarna machines, the metal parts could be infused with oil and the heat from running them produces the oil needed as it runs. Somehow I doubt that could be the answer in an inexpensive machine. If a lot of the parts inside are plastic, then no oil is needed, and they will run until the plastic breaks, necessitating a trip to the repair shop.

Only use sewing machine oil which can be bought at any JoAnn's, Walmart, sew and vac, or sewing machine dealer. Never use household oil or the yellow/blue can of spray that is a water displacement solution which ultimately will gum up the works. You could use Tri-Flow Superior Lubricant.

Basic oiling procedure is to oil wherever metal parts meet (possible friction points) or slide past each other -- a drop or two usually. No grease needed on plastic gears. If you have an old machine with metal gears, then use sewing machine lube (grease) or Tri-Flow lube (can get it at a bicycle shop if no where else).
