Question about Singer Sewing Machines

How many Watts does my machine have?

I recently returned to the UK from Canada and would now like to use my Singer 9805 sewing machine which I bought in Canada. To do this I need to buy a "step down transformer" and I have been asked how many watts my machine has. I can't find anything in the instruction manual I have or on the actual machine - can anyone help me at all ?

Thanks
Noella

Watts is Current ( listed in Amps and normally shown on a tag of some sort on your machine ) times Voltage ( 120Vac) so if you had
For example.. if it listed 10A as in 10 amps @ 120 V then you would have 10 x 120 or 1200 watts.. This should get you in the ballpark.. If you can provide the exact model number of your machine.. I couold get the specs on it and give you a better answer.. Hope that helps...

    U.S. sewing machines operate on 110-120 volts, 60 cycles. When taken abroad they require an Isolation-Type, Step-Down Transformer rated for 240-250 volts down to 110-120 volts and should be rated no less than 150 watts. This transformer should be purchased in the destination country so you will be sure it complies with regulatory requirements of that country and will have the proper plug for connecting to the wall outlet. This transformer should be fitted with the U.S. type of receptacle to accept our standard flat blade plug. By doing this, no changes whatsoever are required to the sewing machine electrics, and when brought back to the U.S. it can be used without any conversion.



    Sewing machines brought into the U.S. from abroad are usually rated for operation on 240-250 volts. An Isolation-Type Step-Up Transformer rated for 110-120 volts up to 240-250 volts is required. This transformer should be rated no less than 150 watts and can be purchased at any reputable electrical supply retailer..

Looking for a sewing dealer


It appears that there are quite a few service centers in Ontario--far more than I can list here, but if you go to the Singer site at http://www.singerco.com/support/warranty-centers/search, and select Ontario, Canada, you'll see a list.

How to fix a seized hand wheel on a singer 9805 sewing machine?


Hi Willow,
Most often a seized wheel is because there is a lot of thread jammed at the needle. I suggest you first check the needle and the bobbin beneath the needle and remove all thread and lint build up. Hopefully this will get your machine sewing again. If not provide more details of your problem so I can help further.

Singer Simple model 3116


If you bought this machine at WalMart, I recommend you return and the go to JoAnn Fabrics. Walmart can buy millions of these machines and pay next to nothing for them. I don't even suggest a beginner buy this machine.
