I would like to know what a transformer for my machine should cost.
Expert:  Martyn Lloyd replied 8 months ago.

A transformer is used to change the power for your machine.... if it is running 240v and you have 120v, then it will need a transformer (and vice versa)

Can you tell me who said this and why please ?

Transformers come in various capacities according to the needs of the appliance

The aspects are written on the plate on your machine as Volts, Amps, Watts

The transformer will need to match the requirements as a minimum.... sewing machines do not dra huge amounts of power (unlike a fan heater etc)

Can you specify the model and the details on the plate so I can better direct you

Regards

Martyn
