    Hi there, my wife recently plugged in a 220v power supply to her new 110v sewing machine. I've narrowed the problem down to this Varistor at this stage but as can be seen from picture it's missing a section with some numbers! Any ideas greatly appreciated!

    I see your problem. You're missing a fuse.

    How was that managed if the correct output plug was fitted?

    She has an American embroidery machine and an Irish Sewing machine which are both fairly similar. We use a small transformer here for the American machine but both have the same figure of 8 socket on the machine and hence the problem!
