eBay and you!

Recently, I bought a Bernina of eBay, knowing it was going to need some work.
The sellers ad gave the impression that it worked but needed fixing.


That's the motor, after I've already chipped away some of the melted goo inside it.

The light bulb was completely carbonized and the wiring is shot.
But their ad said they turned it on....
I'm just not sure what that was supposed to mean!


  1. They...ummm.....stroked it for awhile?


  2. that would explain the charred melted plastic...
    I think someone tried to repair this who had no idea what they were doing.
