Designer SE Viking sewing machine smoked and stopped working

Jtheod63 | Posted in Equipment and Supplies on

Bought used Viking Designer SE sewing machine . Turned on and sewed about 15 minutes. The machine began to smoke. I turned it off and it never started again. Took out the switch and sent out for repair. I was told there is nothing wrong with switch. The sewing machine will not power on or sew at all.

    The entire machine should be looked at by a Viking tech.  It is possible the motor is shot.
