just got this from ebay seller for 50 bucks. the switch that goes back and forth to modify b/t straight and zigzag stitches doesn't work properly. I have to actually take the top plate off and manually push the parts around... not very convenient. i've gone onto the kenmore parts website and that particular part is no longer available thru them.
anyone have suggestions? i am gonna call my LQS guy and ask if he wants to take a stab at repairing it. I admit I am sort of done with getting cheap older machines from 'nonprofessional' folks. after the sale, and paying for repair it's not really a deal.
