Where can I get an instruction manual for Viscount 250 super deluxe precision sewing machine?

You are correct, they were made with many different names. It's unlikely you'll ever find a manual, but any accessories that fit a JA, J, or 60s Brother should fit your machine. It's a great machine, congrats!

I was sewing a seam machine was working fine after sewing for 5 minutes then the motor stopped.

the motor needs to be checked to see if it went out.
it's not good for a sewing machine to sit up for years. and a cloth cover needs to be used to keep the dust off the machine.

Hello I have an old sewing machine and would like to know what its worth it was my moms about 50 years ago its a kenmore 117-552 Serial n is 376239/ tHANKS

Hi. Unfortunately, sewing machines were manufactured by the millions and those from 50 years ago are still going strong and readily available. The value of any sewing machine is determined by how much someone is willing to pay for it. There are some older machines that collectors will pay good money for, if the machine is in excellent shape and has all the attachments. To get an idea of what people are willing to pay for your machine, check the listings in Ebay. There is a vintage kenmore group on yahoo groups that you can check also.

Hope this helps,

Simplicity Serger SL370 - Motor runs but it doesn't sew

Years ago I had the same problem with a sewing machine. Took it to a repair shop which cost me $25.00 for the fix. Asked the repairman what he did and was told that he exposed the bottom of the machine and sprayed the entire area twice with wd-40.

Download a Janome (Jem 639) sewing machine manual

Just today  i got out my little janome i bought years ago and it is this model.  There was no "manual" with the machine.  All that came with it is a large 20X14 two sided print out.  I can scan and send this to you with an email address.

I need to know where i can find a bobbin for a janome sewing machine in the philadelphia area

After I bought my machine years ago, I bought a whole bunch of bobbins on Ebay! Cheap, too. And I have never come close to using all of them. That's a great place to start. Good luck.
