    I wanted to sit and sew.
    Machine has to be plugged into an extension.
    plugged it to the wall and nothing.
    tried all the plug holes nothing.
    hit reset button. nothing.grrrrr
    go to fuse box and turn off and on.
    plug into all holes again.nothing !!
    Moral of the story...............
    REMEMBER TO MAKE SURE THE
    OTHER END IS PLUGGED INTO THE MACHINE.
    I think that says it all !!

    yes very happy was not the machine.
    it's old and I have used it far beyond it's life expectancy.
    I was fully prepared to lift off table for trash and that was when I noticed not plugged to machine.

    Whoopsie! Been there, done that. :oops:

    Glad you figured it out and didn't trash the machine or pay a repair charge.

    I've learned to always check the switch on the power bar. Another lesson!

    We (me included) often forget to start with the easiest solution.

    Oh yes, and that terrible feeling you get in the pit of your stomach when the thought crosses your mind that the sewing machine is broken.

    You think *that's* bad?

    I used to work in the computer area of a large firm. One day I got a call to come to the new area (building addition to which a huge section of the company had just moved) because there was something wrong with a computer. Got to the desk and the screen was black. Clicked the mouse and tapped a couple of keys -- nothing. Said to the user "That's funny. It doesn't seem to have any power." Followed the computer cord to its end, which was sitting on the floor. Asked the user, "Where's the electrical outlet?" User said, "You mean it needs electricity to run?" Turns out the entire section had been built and furnished without electrical outlets for the computers. Still shake my head at that one.......

    That is the first thing hubby always asks me. Had the modem on computer out. Turned out that the power plug had gotten pulled on the modem. Never knew it had power to it.
