Question for Shermann
I have a question for you regarding your Singer 2001 that broke. You mentioned that the computer board broke on it. What were it's symptoms? (LOL) I have a broken machine too and want to know if the board is broken. I spoke with a repair person and he said these machines can be fixed as long as it is not the board of course as they are no longer made.
If it is not the board, then I may get it repaired to have as a spare machine. I have a Bernina Activa 130 but I don't trust it! I left it sitting for a few years(my error) and it has broken down twice since and had two expensive repairs. I will not pay to have it fixed again!
I swear I think I only took that Touch Tronic in for repair once($100?) in the 25 years I used it and I actively sewed on it!
Also, did you keep the machines? I just saw one on Ebay with a broken board that sold for $50+ to be used for the parts. You might get a little cash back!
