On the fan nameplate does it state 220 volts or 110 volts? there are no fuses inside. this is a good place to begin...

    Dust builds up quickly in these fan's . My fan has stopped several times and I have found a way to clean the fan out and make it work again. In the front of the fan you will see the drum where the blades are. At the bast of that is where dust collects the most and stops the drum from turning. Use long nosed tweezers or a stick with a point on the end and run it around the base of the fan. You should see a large clump of dust loosening then. You can try to grab it through the front of the fan or allow it to fall off the base where you can grab from the back more easily and pull it out. Next you will want to use Q-tips to gently clean the blades in order to prevent dust from again accumulating. Its best to clean out the fan every 6 months or so . It will prevent it from not working again. I hope you haven't thrown it out. I have had my fan for 6 years and I can't live without it. I take medication. Which makes me perspire a lot and keep it on my night stand.

India 220watts how I cAn use brother cs6000i sewing machine in India

The only way I know is a 110/220 volt transformer.
They are available in any electronics supply house.
As I remember the motors in these machines are only two lead, and they put the motor in for the country it will be sold in.
Dual voltage motors have three or four leads (wires).

Sorry to say, you probably burned up the motor (judging from the burning smell). The solution would be to replace the motor, but that might not be as easy as it sounds, especially if your sewing machine is computerized.

Won't turn on

if no led, replace the power supply. if amber light and no fand, check for obstructions under the button. if red led and no fans, there is a fan issue. if fans go but no light, it's the colorwheel or the lamp.

Same problem... orange power light, fan starts slow and builds up to very high speed.
I removed my video card and SIMMs --> it beeped on boot and the fan did not speed up.
Put one SIMM back in --> booted fine, pressed F2 to view BIOS. Memory reported fine.
Put all SIMMs back in --> all fine now.
