    Will do. It was a broken presser foot lever. I couldn't figure out how to replace it correctly. Hopefully, it won't cost an arm and a leg to get that done. One of the members of this board recommended the shop to me, so I'm sure everything will work ok! Not sure if they'll do a tune-up on her while she's there or just replace that part. I'll be so happy when she's back home with me!!

    My sisters best friend is named Dottie and could be your twin. The similar looks are amazing. Dottie has your personality too. Her friends call her "Dottie the Chiwawa" because she won't let up if something is bothering her. She's a little, small framed barker! LOL!

    Charlee, we all know businesses that have owners or workers that don't have a clue about what they are doing.... sad!! It takes awhile to figure out which ones know something but it is very important to do that.

    And, the quote says there are only 2 machines that have a potted motor. That can't be true. I now have a Singer 101 and it has the potted motor. I know it's been hard trying to find much information about the 101s. I haven't printed out the owner's manual for it yet but I will have to because I need to know about putting the grease in it. You just can't trust everything you see on the internet either.

    I had this happen one time with my computer. I was telling the men about it and they looked at me and said this is a pretty old computer and cannot have all that on it because they did not do that years agod. I told them again that it had crashed and I did not want to buy a new computer because I could not get all the stuff I wanted on it without spending a fortune. The young man (looked about 14 lol) told me it was not worth saving and I did not understand. Well that did it. With hacd on hip I informed him that I knew all about this machine and it was well worth fixing because my son said so and I am sure he knows all about it since he built it for me. I also mentioned that he had been a crytological tech in the navy and now worked for a company that installed all the computer equipment in navy ships and the only reason you are even touching my puter is because I cannot get it to my son in Virginia Beach.
    Yes his attitude changed. lol
    A friend is someone who knows all about you and loves you anyway.

    True, I didn't read the page I posted, I was just showing bearisgray what a potted motor looks like
    One day, you'll only be a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.

    In Christmas Valley a fellow was telling me his family had a singer dealership. When a black machine was traded in, no matter how nice it was, they used to take a big hammer and destroy them to get them out of the market place so they could sell the new machines. I was physically ill instantly. I like to fell over in a faint. I am a singer-aholic and have several.
