I noticed that the electric cord for my 15-91 is beginning to split/crack. (It is original to the machine, about 1943.) The 3-prong part that attaches to the machine, and the prong that goes into the electric socket, are fine. It's just the cord itself.)

Thank you!

You can get 18 gauge lamp cord ("zip cord")by the foot at any home improvement or hardware store. Then just replace the cord, using the existing connectors. Not your cup of tea? Must know somebody handy with the electricals...

Good luck, have fun!

Please do not REPLACE the entire cord. The bakelite piece that plugs into the machine is WONDERFUL it fits perfectly and feels great. You will preserve the integrity of your machine if you wire a new plug/cord into the bakelite piece. You can get a solid, black cord from any hardware store, and it's simple do. The new ones don't fit very well.

Oh yes, Jenny's site! How could I forget? She has such a wealth of information there. Yes, I'll have to check there. Thank you!

Oh, how right you are, it is not my cup of tea. But it so happens that I do know someone who is handy with electrical wiring - fact is, he repaired a 30+ year old light fixture in my home. This is a good idea. Thank you!

Oh, I know you are right! I kind of thought that intuitively, that that part (I hadn't realized it was bakelite) was just a perfect fit, and I thought there might be a way to only replace the cord itself. And Al Johnson above suggested the same. I highly doubt I can manage it myself - looking tonight, I couldn't figure how in the world one would separate the cord from the plug, or the bakelite connector piece. But I do know someone who's into electrical things. Thank you!

I am not advertising here (really!) but I do happen to have an extra Singer power cord - not the double lead cord, but just the power cord - that I can hook you up with. It came along for the ride with some other items I bought and I don't need it.

PM me if interested!
