Cord on Singer Sewing Machine Shorts Out

The electrical cord on my Singer sewing machine keeps shorting out. It will only work in certain plugs or it will work and stop working 15 minutes later. What's causing the problem? And how do I fix it?

the problem is most likely over-loading your motor and/or circuits. don't do more than your machine is supposed to do or through trial and error find out what else needs to be turned off while you are running your sewing machine. even machines not in use but plugged in can cause an overload, especially old ones (toaster, tv, coffeemaker).

Try it in different outlets that you know work for other appliances. The plug may need replacing. I had that with a vacuum cleaner.

Your power cords most likely need replacement, there is every chance that there are tiny breaks in the copper wiring that only align correctly sometimes. It's an easy repair, just buy an extension cord, measure it up and rewire accordingly, red/brown to the same, and blue/black to the same.

Sewing machines are class 2 devices and therefore the ground wire isn't necessary as the machine already supplies ways to insulate the electricity from the end-user.
