A transformer will not change the frequency of the supply, only the voltage.
It may be possible to obtain a box of electronics to convert 50Hz to 60Hz, which would solve the problem.
A machine designed to run on 60Hz will run slower on 50Hz and may run hotter. If it burns out due to overheating, then a new motor designed to run at 50Hz should be fitted. You could have peace of mind if you fitted a new motor (which might be cheaper than an electronic frequency converter.

Sorry Angela, been looking for a manual for my Simplicity too but can't locate one either. If we don't contact manufacture for one, we may not get one. Unless someone out there has one to scan and share? Come on folks, help out!

SOURCE: I have imported my american Elna sewing machine to Germany and use an additional plug now for the different currency. The machine light is stronger and the machine runs very fast now. How can I reduce
Are you using a transformer to break the current down from 250 to 110V?? Just putting a plug adapter onto the US plug end is not enough and can definitely damage your machine, I'm assuming its not an electronic machine as it would probably have fried the circuits if it was.
You may have to pay quite a bit for a good quality transformer but it will be necessary.
