MOTOR CAN BE OPERATED ON EITHER ALTERNATING CURRENT OR DIRECT CURRENT Motors are available for all of the commonly used voltages between 95 and 250, and are suitable for use on alternating current or direct current. Special motors suitable for operatives on 32 volts DC and on 50 volts AC or DC are also available.
The voltage of the household supply and, if alternating current, the
number of cycles can be verified by looking at the name plate on the meter installed by the local supply authority for measuring the consumption of electricity.

1. The correct motor to use is one on which the range of voltage on the motor name plate includes the voltage on the meter.
2. If current is alternating the number of cycles quoted on the motor must be within the range of cycles on the motor name plate.
3. In the event of there being any doubt about the supply voltage and cycles, this information should be obtained from the Supply Company.


Slide the foot controller (D. Fig 3) to the right out of its holder in the lid of the carrying case and unwind the electric cord. Push the terminal plug at one end of the electric cord as far as it will go on the three-pin terminal block at the right of the machine.


Attach the plug at the other end of the cord to the nearest electric point. Place the foot controller in a convenient position on the floor and the machine is ready for operation

CAUTION When you have finished your sewing, always disconnect the plug from the electric point.
