I have an old Industrial Singer Electric Transmitter (motor) with an Electric Transmitter Switch #994647, that has an on/off switch (inside the box with a capacitor) that was broken on my sewing machine. The switch alone (SquareD #2510FO) replacement costs more than the whole motor set-up. I have been unemployed for a year, and have zero money to spend. I am not mechanical or electrical. Years ago when I got the machine, a friend bypassed the broken on/off switch and wired it to come on whenever I plugged it in. It worked for almost 7 years that way-no big deal because it is loud and you wouldn't want it left running anyways. But now, when I plugged it in, some wires started smoking, so I unplugged it & got scared and haven't touched it since. I can't buy a new switch, but I can send pics of everything and I can talk and facetime on my phone and video chat on the computer to try and explain it better to get it fixed. I pulled the melted electrical tape off the wires looking for the source of smoke. Do I just re-wrap the wires or something more serious??? Or if I DO get a switch, which wires go where?? We labelled them 7 yrs ago !! Anyone?????
