    I had my Bernina 440 at a quilt retreat out in the country, right after I got back home it stopped working. My dealer said it was do to a low power going to it, and damaged the motherboard. It was still under warranty at the time. From then on, I have all of my computerized sewing machines plugged into a battery pack surge protecter, that you can pick up at Best Buy for about 40 bucks. I warned my guild about it, but the same thing happened to another quilter at another quilt retreat with her machine.

    I had my Brother 1500 ps high speed machine at a class and it would not sew, just start and then just stop. When I got home the machine worked fine. The repairman said it wasn't getting enough power. ? It was plugged in a strip with other machines all going to one plug and all the other machines were sewing fine that was plugged in to it. No computer on this machine so it didn't hurt anything. I haven't had a problem since. I don't take any computerized machine to classes that I may have to share a plug with several people.
    Got fabric?
