Unfortunately you probably need a new board and the parts are no longer available.

How to take apart a singer sewhandy 50d to rewire it?

These machines are not user serviceable, no parts will be available to the general public.
Please have a trained service technician look at your machine. electrical issues and mechanisms do require service from time to time, especially with heavy use. If you use your machine frequently, have it cleaned and adjusted based on your use levels.

I just plugged in my sewing machine into a new apartments socket. This machine has always worked. I smelled a strange odor, and went to get scissors. When I returned the machine was completely dead. Did...

1. Have you tried it in another socket? Check the light bulb to ensure it isn't rubbing against something (smell).
2. After you try the machine in a new socket make sure the on/off switch is set to on. Is the bulb lit? Replace it if not. Also, check the outlet with something else electrical to make sure it is working.
3. Make sure the cord is attached securely to the machine.
4. If these checks hasn't worked your next move is to go to your repair shop.

No power for my singer 7258

Could you please clarify this issue? Is your power cord missing, or you have it and the machine doesn't turn on?

I just took a look at the user's manual for your machine, and your power cord is a standard two-prong polarized laptop cord--you can buy it at any computer store. You may have similar cords around the house on, for instance, your printers. Your first step is trying another cord--that's generally the problem.

If it still doesn't go on, I'm afraid that you'll have to have a technician take a look at it--it could be anything from a blown fuse, to a defective motherboard, to a bad motor.

Took my foot pedal apart, now it wont work at all, just makes a clicking sound when trying to put my foot down on it..


Unplug the machine plug and wall plug on the sewing machine.

Check the power cord for cracks, burns, or faulty contacts as this could be a possible reason for the foot control not working.

Open the foot control by using a knife or flat surface tool, such as a flathead screwdriver, to pry open the corner of the foot control.

Check the wires to see if they are disconnected; this can happen if the foot control drops to the ground. To check wires, remove the circuit board using a flat knife. Inspect the wires inside the foot control. You will see some wires that are soldered together. Check to see if there are any broken wires, as this could be the problem. If the wire is broken, clean the area to remove any debris or dirt. Remove a small amount of the insulation before soldering. Solder wires together.

When you are done, reassemble the foot control and make sure it's working again.

The wheel is completely stck and will not turn. I was sewing and everything was fine and then all of sudden this happened...i took apart and cleaned....can't figure it out.

Check the top shaft bearings. Have similar problem on another computerized model. Top right bearing was completely stuck. Using Liquid Wrench to unfreeze it. Afterwards use sintered bearing oil like Tri-Flow to lubricate bearing.
