Singer Informative - Defective machine - Professional XL-50 sewing machine
I purchased this machine barely 3 years ago and did not have a chance to use it until lately, when I partially retired. I had been an experienced sewer, and had taken instructions on using the machine. It quickly jammed during ordinary usage; the first time it was repaired, I was informed there was thread around the shaft. The second time, I was informed that the bearings needed to be replaced, and "they were seeing a lot of these." This machine was barely used, not abused, and the only way the bearings would need replacement would be if the bearings were defective in the first place.
It cost $1000, and will cost $300 to repair. This machine is a lemon, and I want a replacement.
