Why when I was sewing one minute and the next it stopped completly and my light went out. Put in new bulb nothing still works?

You machine has an electrical disconnection somewhere. Most likely it is in the power cord, but could also be inside the machine itself.

Best to take it for repair unless you can test with a different power cord.

Motor won't run.

The problem could be with the switch that powers the motor or the brushes on the motor itself may be worn. Also look for bad connection in the wiring.

My Pfaff model 1211 machine won't come on. The power switch has been replaced but no light and no power for stitching

Sounds like a bad connection somewhere as the power seems intermittent. Consult your repair man to check the electrics.

My 1507 singer machine wont power on

try unplugging the power cord & then plugging it back into
the machine to make sure it's getting the right connection.
if it still doesn't come on then the machine needs to be checked to
see what's wrong with it. cause if it's not the power cord it could be
the on off switch.

Where can I buy a bulb for my XL 3520 sewing machine

Is it a push in and twist bulb? Or a screw in bulbs like the old Holiday lights? Both can be had in the states but we have different power voltage.

I looked at your manual from Brother's download and it looks to me like it's a push and twist (some folks call it bayonete style) but I can't tell for sure.

Here is a UK source... once you determine which bulb... these folks should have it for you.

Brocken both needles and power went off the machine

I guessing that from what you say broken both needles you are talking about a serger, unless you are using twin needles in a sewing machine
if the power has gone off, have you tried turning off the machine & turning it back on, if that doesn't work then it's possible that the power cord may have gone out, or the on & off switch may have gone out.
the only things broken needles will do is knock the machine out of time or jam it up

I have a Singer Sewing Machine #9444. There is no electrical getting to my machine since the light doesn't work and the foot pedal doesn't work after I turn on the machine

Try replacing the light bulb or rerouting the wire so it won't be affected by the light bulb or the foot pedle. Becarefull though because if you rerout the the wireing in the foot pedle you're taking away the off/on swich so it'll stay on. You may want to open up the foot pedle and see if there is anything loose, not conected or broken. The pedal is used as an on/off swich so it may just be stuck in the off position and not making contact when you press down on it so it won't turn on.
If you can't fined a blulb for it by the way you can disconect the socket where you screw it in and install a new one. Make sure the new one will fit in the same hole though. Then it should be easy finding a bulb for it. PLEASE MAKE SURE THE MACHINE IS DISCONECTED BEFOR YOU DO ANY OF THESE THINGS. Good luck!

A few months ago, the bulb wouldn't come on, so I

When you say 'bulb' ... I assume you mean the sewing light ? The Artista 180 does not have a conventional 'bulb' for the sewing light, but a fluorescent tube that's a 'C' shap and surrounds the bottom of the head unit by the needle. This is driven by a high-voltage converter that runs off a supply on the main processor board. If the machine is working normally but there's some intermittent on/off of the fluorescent light, it could be simply that the tube's had-it, in which case its off to the service man for a new one - it comes as a complete tube and converter replacement. But before you do that. TURN THE MACHINE OFF. unscrew the hex socket that holds the head cover on and remove the head cover (the cover over the needle end). If you look at the head mechanism, looking towards the foot pressure control (i.e. the 'end' of the sewing arm) you should see a small cirucit-board just above the fluorescent tube with a fairly large 2-pin connector on the top - this slides on to the circuit board. Try giving that a careful wiggle to re-seat the connections, but PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THIS IS A HIGH-VOLTAGE PART AND THEREFORE DANGEROUS, so you MUST NOT touch it with the machine switched-on. Hope that helps.
