    White 764

    I'm new to sewing. I picked up a vintage White 764 at a garage sale and I can't even figure out how to turn on the motor. It's not in the instruction manual either. Can someone please help?

    I can't picture a White 764 in my mind, but most older machines do not have an "on~off" switch.
    You plug 'em in and if the wiring and motor is good the light will work and when you press on the foot controller the motor will run.

    I have a White 763, They're great machines. Do you have all the cords?

    The White 764 I owned had the two plug-ins for light and motor. When it is plugged in it is on. Unless yours is hard-wired for the foot control and wall plug you need the plug-in block (if it is in a cabinet-look up inside-if it is in a case look to the right of the machine or under the machine for the plug in block). I don't think you can use it without the block because that is what connects the foot control and wall plug. It is a nice machine-I never bonded with mine and donated it to Habitat.
