    I need help!

    does any body know where I can see a tutorial on rewiring my featherweight machine. It quit me tonight again at quilting after 2 hours. It does not smell hot or feel hot. The power going into it just stops! I appreciate all the help that I can get

    I would check the wall plug first, sometimes one will work and sometimes one will be bad. We've experienced this.

    I have tried the wall plug. This happened in 2 different places. I am sure that there is a short or a loose connection as it will sew for a while and then just stops. I need to know what ot look for.

    Thank you so much for the help. As soon as I have a few spare minutes, I will take a look at it.
