WHat is the mains supply voltage where you are? In the UK (which is from where one assumes you have come) it is around 230-240V.
Electrical sockets (outlets) in the Bermuda Islands (Somers Isles) usually supply electricity at between 110 and 120 volts AC.
Did you check the supply voltage was compatible?
You MAY be able to get a spare motor (and possibly congtroller as well) suitable for 120Vac.
You could try to contact Brother technical support.
