Long-time lurker here. But now I need some help.
Anyone heard of this?
My sewing machine the past few weeks has been a little weird. It's a 1980-ish Kenmore, electric, zigzags and a few other stitches.
When I first turn it on, the light would quickly turn on/off a few times, but then it would settle down and stay on. Or it wouldn't turn on, but I'd jiggle the plug a few times and it would turn on and stay on. Jiggling on the sewing machine side of things seemed to make no difference, only on the plug end.
Well, you can see this one coming. I got my first accuquilt go die yesterday. I am IN LOVE!!! I quickly cut out a boatload of hexagons. I'm all excited to start sewing.
Yep. The sewing machine is dead. Not a peep out of it.
So....what do y'all think? Did the sewing machine itself die? Or is it just the plug that died?
Is changing the plug something I can learn to do? Better to take it to a repair man?
Help! I'm feeling a little panicked because I'm trying frantically trying to complete a twin sized I Spy quilt for the granddaughter's April birthday.
