Question about Euro-Pro Shark 80 - 7133
My machine has been going slow. The past couple times I used it, it would start out slow then go to normal speed, like it had to warm up or something. I haven't used in it a month or so, and this time it started out really slow and I only sewed about 6 inches when the machine stopped working altogether. The light is on but the pedal does nothing. During my sewing I also started to smell something burning... not sure if it's a wire, the motor, or what. It's a distinct smell, not quite like rubber but maybe a little? I unscrewed the plate on the bottom and looked inside but didn't see anything not that I know what I was looking at. I can't take apart the foot pedal--there are no screws to unscrew it--but the smell wasn't coming from there anyway. The smell is coming from the machine. Is it time to take the machine in to service it or is there something I can do? I hope I don't need a new motor. Do those pretty expensive?
Grand Lake Sew and Vac does not repair sewing machines. They send them to a repair place in Alameda. Someone comes to pick up the broken machines every Tuesday. Repairs are not timely and can be pricey,
