Is it possible to change the fuse in a sewing machine?

The machine didn't turn on when I switched on the power. There seems to be no power getting to any part of the machine. I have checked my power supply and the cord and plug seem okay.

Is the light working? If not, it is probably an electrical problem.

Some machines have batteries, so it could be logical that there could also be fuses. From the problem you are experiencing, I would suspect your problem lies in the foot control unit. Most of them have brushes that get worn down. When they are worn too much, they fail to make contact and there is no longer power to the machine. Brushes can be replaced by the adventurous and mechanically inclined. The motor can also have brushes with the same problem.

Take to a sewing repair service or search the internet for sites and videos on replacing brushes.

The only fuses ive ever seen inside a sewing machine was located inside the foot switch assembly and ive taken apart a few dozen now , but now ive seen quite a few broken power cords and sockets in that few dozen , seems the power cords sure take a beating on these ?

Motor won't run.


The problem could be with the switch that powers the motor or the brushes on the motor itself may be worn. Also look for bad connection in the wiring.

I have a Bernina 170 which I haven't used in about 2 years. I just tried to set it up and it won't turn on - are there any fuses or anything I can check myself before having to haul it to a repair shop>


The only fuse you can get at is in the plug, I'm afraid. There is a fuse on the power-supply circuit-board, but you do need to dismantle the machine to get at it and it is not the type used in a normal plug, so has to be replaced by the correct type if it is blown. You're best to have it checked professionally - it may be something quite simple. I am assuming that absolutley nothing happens --- not even the sewing light? There is a known problem with the switches on these power supplies and if you have an early one, it may be possible that if this is the fault you can just get the switch changed, but unfortunatley not all service agents will do this and it depends on the state of your machine warranty.

Serger not getting power


First the basic tests....

The cable is securely inserted to wall and machine and both switched on ?

Have you tried a different socket and tried something you know works in the one you want to sew from ?

If the socket is OK, then it would be a good idea to have it seen to by someone qualified........it may just be a fuse, but it may be more serious, and as this is electricity, not to be messed with I suggest.
