Hey guys, for those who are mechanically inclined, I found this site ---lots of sewing machine parts and service manuals! http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/service-manuals.aspx I took mine apart the other day---with a little bit of mechanical skill, it would be pretty easy to do your own maintenance! (for the price of a sewing machine mtc visit, I could buy a new motor, replace the belt, and get an official service manual )
