I think that I would get an electrician to help you. Maybe there is an adapter or they can change one plug in your sewing room to accomodate your machine. I do not think that is a diy project. Please check with a professional because you have a nice machine.

We are from South Africa and moved to Canada what do we need to change the volts and hz to use our Bernina Bernette embraudery machine?


probably nothing as they make the machine for the country's utility power supplies
you will have to go to places like JAYCAR to get a step down transformer or go to an electrical retailer to get an inverter to do what you want
go to a sewing machine repair shop and discuss the problem

Where can I buy a user manual for a Brother Star 110 in Australia


Hope I'm not stating the obvious, but have you tried Brother ? I've dealt with them often in Canada and their service has always been terrific. Worth a try if you haven't tried it.

Site here, just pick your country.

How do I turn off THE BOBBIN winder on a Bernette 65 sewing machine?


The bobbin spindle needs to be moved to the left in the slot to disengage the winding mechanism. (It may be easier to do this with the bobbin on the spindle. The bobbin and spindle should be moved to the right after putting the bobbin on for winding.)

The directions and pictures for winding the bobbin are on page 30-31 of the manual. The manual is available from Bernina on their support page for the out-of-print Bernette machine manuals: .http://www.bernina.com/en-US/Support-US/Out-of-Print-Manuals/bernette-manuals/Bernette-Sewing-Machines . The direct link to the Bernette 65 manual is here: http://www.bernina.com/getdoc/6d2754b8-af09-4edb-a6a6-7a4c57965b8d/bernette-55-65-80e-90e .

I hope this helps.

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.
