Sewing Machine Has No Power When Plugged In?

I have an old New Home embroidery machine (one of the first ones) and it has no power. When I plug it in no light or any power at all. Does this machine have a fuse?

I don't think the actual machine has a fuse but it's possible the foot control does; more likely though, there is a broken wire either in the connection area of the machine, or in the foot control.

If you are completely comfortable doing small home electrical repair, you can open the sewing machine and have a look where the connection is made to see if the wires leading to the connection are broken (easy fix). If everything in there looks fine, open the foot control and inspect it for breaks or frays.


Again, this is an easy fix.

If you are not comfortable doing small electrical repairs, take your machine to a sewing centre and have their repair tech do the troubleshooting and repair.

While the machine is in the shop the tech should also look the entire machine over, and do a servicing (cleaning of inner parts for lint, gunk, etc, and oiling). The repair and servicing should cost around $80USD - be sure to get a written estimate so there are no nasty surprises when you go to pick it up.
