Hello sorry to hear you are having trouble, I'm Joel and will be glad to help you today.

The motor you need is singer part number:

Motor, Singer #362290-001

but they are no longer being manufactured for that model, you may find a used on ebay or amazon, but other than that you may just want to buy a used machine on ebay to have replacement parts for the one you have because they are not making many parts for that model anymore.

Now that I have given you an initial answer to your question I would ask at this time that you go ahead and rate my assistance because we are not compensated for our time unless you do. Even after you have rated I will continue to help you at no charge if you have any follow up questions. You rate my assistance by clicking on one of the empty stars located at the top right of your question page on Just Answer. The 5th star to the right is the best rating and I hoped I have earned that. Thank you for seeing to this at this time and then if you have any follow up questions please let me know. Rating my assistance will in no way affect the charges for this service.
