SOURCE: E1 Error

After spending many hours on the phone with Sears, someone finally gave the manufacturer's phone number (1-877-739-4648)! Their help desk told me that an E1 error usually means that a fuse needs to be replaced. The fuse is covered under the 2 year electrical warranty. They said I should take the machine to a Sears Service Center to get it repaired. Go luck. I am completely frustrated with the Sears website and the salespeople who want to help, but can't because they haven't been trained on the machines!

SOURCE: E1 error

I was getting the E1 error message. I was told that the fuse had to be switched from the 2.5 amp that is has to a 3.5 amp. they did not recall the machine because of the low cost $2.99. I just received my fuse in the mail. I'm going to try to change it out myself.

In the window then note comes up E1 ERROR . What is this. It does not sew.

Consult the owner's manual. There is usually a list of error codes in the Troubleshooting section that discusses error codes and how to resolve them.

Error Codes differ from brand to brand, so it is best to search for your machine's make, model plus "E1," ie:

Hi i keep getting the E1 error message flash up on the sewing machine, it still sews but it keeps stopping and the E1 error message comes up, what exactly is wrong with it? can you he;lp? Thanks

E1 means that your machine thinks the thread has broken.

There's nothing you can do to fix this: it has to go to an authorised Singer Service Centre for diagnosis and repair. Usually it's a faulty thread sensor.

E1-Error message is apparently the fuse were is


The E1 error message. This is due to the fuse having to be switched from the 2.5 amp to a 3.5 amp. they did not recall the machine because of the low cost $2.99.

The Fuse is Located on the Board itself.

I guess the Part Number for your model is 000182177.

E1 error code.

The pressure foot was up instead of down when I tried to run the machine without sewing something.

E1 Error

If your sewing machine show's the E1 Error, then you have to open your sewing machine and replace the fuse.(you have to open the right Cover on Front where the Display is placed, because there is the circuit board placed!) There are 3 Fuses in the Sewing machine and they are placed at the printed circuit board. It should be the Fuse in the middle. (not those with the wire in it!) It's not easy at all to open the machine, the best thing you can do (if you have a Digicam) take some Pictures of the wiring so it will be much easier to put it back together. I'm NOT an Expert; but a passionate hobbyist. ;) If you are too; just save yourself further trouble with the helpdesk, and fix it yourself. I hope this post could help you!
