If you are sending a sewing machine which runs on 120volts to a region that has a 240volt power supply you will need to get a
power step down converter that will fit into the socket of the 220volt supply ,and will have a socket that will hold the plug of the 120volt supply going to your machine.
the converter must reduce the 240v down to 110v .

Wrongly connected to 220v


Yikes. If you connect a 120v machine to 220v... it is probably fried. Sorry.

Do you need a manual for it?
Manuals are available from the Brother site.
http://www.brother-usa.com/manuals/default.aspx?PGID=3
I can't help you with finding out the model, but finding the right manual should help you do that.
Unfortunately it will mean trawling through all the manuals until you find the right one!
Hope this helps!

Sounds like you have tried everything possible, be sure you are using an anti static needle on the delicate fabrics, if that does not work it really does mean fiddling with the tensions until you get it dead right

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.
