Do yourself and your sewing machine a favour, unplug them when not in use. While I was gone we had a power surge. You know it's happened when all the electronic clocks keep flashing at you and seem to be saying fix me. My motherboard is done on mine and can not be repaired. I do have an older Singer 1934 to be exact, my hubby's grandmother's machine. I don't have it set up to sew a quarter inch seam, something I plan on doing in the near future. I am now shopping for a new machine. One would think that would be easy, but it comes with all kinds of decisions. What options? What do I plan on using the machine for? The questions go on. My none working machine was a Pfaff 7570, I really liked that machine.
One thing I have done already is to go and buy myself a battery backup with surge protector. We never know if the power will go out when we are using the machine this one gives me 15 minutes to turn off my machine after the power goes out. I will still continue to unplug my sewing machine and iron as I usually do.
Be kind to your machines and get a battery backup and make sure to unplug them.
