Either the machine needs to be oiled or the motor is going bad.Remove the covers and place a drop of oil anyplace that moves and rubs.( The ends of each shaft, the bobbin case area. The needle bar and the joints that allow it to move) Those kinds of places. Also look for thread that may be wrapped around a moving part and remove it.
Check the motor by loosening the handwheel clutch(as though you were going to wind a bobbin) and see if the motor still runs slowly when it is not turning the machine.

My brother sewing is not working light is on i push pedel i hear voice but its not working


Sounds like a broken belt, not something you can do yourself. You need to bring it in for service.

Sewing machine stops sews a minute slows down or stops then starts up


I suggest having the machine checked at a sewing machine shop
to see if there is something wrong with the motor, or the foot pedal
but first check to make sure the power cord & foot pedal are
connected correctly

Machine will not complete a buttonhole, keeps showing error code 6L. No error code listed in manual. Machine will only do first half of buttonhole and then shows code and stops.


I've been looking too and I found here http://sewing.patternreview.com/cgi-bin/sewingclasses/board.pl?t=18328that you need to put the bar behind the needle threader down. I think they call it a button hole stop? I don't know, but it worked. I didn't even know it existed. But it solved my problem. On my Kenmore it looks like a black lever and you pull it down. It tells the button-holer that you are at the end of the hole and it needs to backup. nifty, kind of.

Machine only sews at very slow rate


Check the speed control button on the front of the machine. It could have gotten slid all the way over to "turtle."

Sews and then slows down. will not thread bobbin


make sure you are running you thread around the bobbin to get it started start slow when winding, is there something under your sewing foot(on the floor) when you are sewing if it's slowing down sounds like something may be holding it back, only other thing that may cause something would be internally if not the feed dogs. let me know hope this helps amy
