Does this Silver sewing machine have a model number?
If you plugged a 110-vold machine into a higher voltage, you popped something. Hopefully there is is an internal fuse. If this is one of the newer electronic machines that has a computer inside, anything could be damaged.

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.

India 220watts how I cAn use brother cs6000i sewing machine in India


The only way I know is a 110/220 volt transformer.
They are available in any electronics supply house.
As I remember the motors in these machines are only two lead, and they put the motor in for the country it will be sold in.
Dual voltage motors have three or four leads (wires).

Can Singer 7258 Stylist be used in a Country like India with 220 - 240 voltage? Is there any UK model for the same?


the machine comes in two versions european {220-240v}
or american {110v}

you need to use a transformer to give 110-240v
the current this machine uses is less than 3amps
so a 3amp 110-240v converter is easily found on ebay for $10

American lead, how do i convert


How to convert an American lead will depend on where you are. You can buy a universal adapter at most travel stores, but first of all consider the local supply voltage. US power is delivered at 110 volts. Australia, Europe and much of the world have a 220 to 240 volt supply. Connecting a 110 volt machine to a 220 volt supply will create smoke and potentially flames - I've seen a number of disasters. Some machines are made to operate across both supplies. Check the label on the back of the machine, near where the power cable plugs in. If it reads 110 - 220 volt you should be OK. Your local Brother dealer should be able to supply a local market power cable for you. They cost around $30 in Australia.

I just bought a cs6000i sewing machine from USA. I live in India. Why is there smoke coming out of my new sewing machine? Is there a problem with the voltage?


Yes, India voltage is 240, USA is 110. You have probably fried it, should have purchased a machine from another 240V country like Australia of used a voltage converter to break it down.

Bought a singer from the state but cannot be used in australia what should i do?


If it is an electronic or computerized machine, you are out of luck. USA has 110 volt 60Hz current, Australia has 220 volt 50Hz. A transformer can change 220 to 110 volts, but it cannot change 60Hz to 50Hz.

Can I use an American foot pedal on my Australian/European machine? Thanks


Probably not as the US one would be wired for 110 but Australian voltage is 240. And the foot pedal and power cable are usually all wired together as one unit.

I presume that your machine is a 240voltage machine? You'd need to order an appropriate foot control for it from the local distributor for your machine. Sometimes you can buy generic pedals too but the plug needs to match your machine.

Buy a new foot pedal for it, probably one of the electrical components inside the foot has failed.

There are Kenmore footcontrols for sale on www.sewingpartsonline.com. You could email them to check its right for your model if it isn't listed.

Obviously I'm assuming that you are in USA with 110 Voltage and that is what your machine is. If not and your country is 220V, you would need to source it from a reseller in your own country or another with the same voltage.

The pedal is representative of the peal (which does not need a converter), but it is NOT representative of the motor. You need to examine the name plate of the motor itself.
You will discover that you need a converter.

I bought singer 7422 from Brazil, so it is 110 voltage, we moved to Finland and here we have 220. My daughter connect it directly to 220V, I changed fuse as it was broken, but it broke again.


Call Singer before you plug it in again, you may wreck your machine if you have the wrong voltage. Go to singerco.com and get the phone number for your country,.Be careful and good luck
