    I have inherited this neglected White sewing machine. It was left in an outdoor storage room for approximately 35 years. Shameful, I know. I am trying to identify it hoping to be able to use it someday. It would be perfect for quilting. The serial number is FR7023923 or possibly 723. I have taken the drawers out of the cabinet to try to restore them. I have been able to get most parts turning again but need to know what cable to order, etc for other parts. This is not to be sold and I don't care about the value. I would like to know the date and where I might be able to order any parts and manual for it. Hopefully, someone out there is knowledgeable enough to figure this out for me. I have exhausted internet searches. Thank you so much.

      You have your work cut out for you but what fun! I have scoured the internet as well only to find out that FR means Family Rotary After HOURS of researching I found this article with a guy with the same problem . He called the White Husqvarna/Viking/White company gave the serial number and they dated the machine duh!! How simple was that??!! 1 800 446 2333 I'm calling Monday! Google the numberThis should save A LOT of frustration for both of us! Keep us updated!!
