    When I go to my sister's to sew she always lets me use her featherweight, I keep telling her and her husband that every once in awhile I get a tingly feeling on the side of my arm that rests on the machine, they don't seem to think it anything, my sister says it never happens to her. I am taking my own machine from now on. I thought maybe the ground fault was not grounded correctly since it is in the basement.

DH thinks it is a grounding problem, does anyone here have any ideas? The cord is in good shape, but does not have the grounding point on it. I love the machine, but it scares me!!! Please help!!

    OK, I am convinced. I will not use it again until checked out.

    Whew! Glad to hear that! My FW has been in "time out" for awhile due to the tingling. May you get your issue resolved soon.
