I recently bought an old (circa 1958) Singer 401a machine, apparently in excellent condition with all attachments etc. It's been running a dream, but having set it up this evening to make a last-minute xmas present, it blew the mains fuse as soon as I plugged it into the wall. Upon resetting the mains and trying again, it did it again. Does anyone know what the problem is, and is it fixable(affordably fixable, that is)?
" Merry Christmas, here's the pieces of your christmas present..."
Eek I'm in a bit of a bind now.
