Pfaff 2058 Voltage switch

New Pfaff 2058 -- fresh out of the box, and we can't get the voltage switch to move to 120V from the 240V setting. The switch is at the bottom of the machine. Do you know how to slide the switch?

There is a small clear plastic piece blocking the switch that must be removed, then use a small flat screw driver to flip the switch, you can throw away the small piece, it is only needed for shipping.
good luck!

Caan u pls help me I bought brother HC1850 from US and I live in Nigeria,in my excitement I didn't check to see what voltage it I Jst plugged it,it came for a second then give popping sound and then nothin...

If you're lucky only the power board is toasted. If it's bad luck then you'll have to replace both the power board and the main logic board. The good news is both parts together retail for under $100 US, so you should be able to find them on Aliexpress for a lot less. The bad news is the powerboard is not robust; if you want to use the Brother in Nigeria's 240V electrical environment I'd recommend using a 240v-120v step down transformer connected to a 120v UPS / Line Conditioner. Brother doesn't recommend that any of their computerized (sewing) equipment be used in poor power conditions or with step down transformers, the power circuits aren't built to be that strong.

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.

My Pfaff 1471 lights up, but does not run. This model has no fuse. I checked the foot pedal with an ohm meter, & it sends a variable signal. My house took a direct lightning strike 2 weeks ago, &...

Were the base plate pugs into the power leads, you should read about 6-18 is ohms. Open and short is a bad transformer.

Also there are fuses, 2-3 right next to the transformer, small blueish and round are the shapes. They go bad often.

I have a Husqvarna Classica 105 sewing machine that I bought about 15 years ago in the US and that I use mostly for mending and alterations. It is a great sewing machine and I had it serviced and tuned up...

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.

Does the Pfaff 7550 run on electrics here and other places?

Somewhere on the machine, usually the bottom, there is a switch to change the voltage settings of the machine. Please check that and your users manual for clarification.

no, it will definately run fine in Australia.Electricity in South Africa is 230 Volts, alternating at 50 cycles per second which is the same as Australia. The voltage in Aus and SA will be somewhere between 220/240v most of the time.

Input power

Yes there will be a selector switch inside the machine, this will be near the motor and is either a rotary or flick switch.
