Question about Kenmore 15218 Mechanical Sewing Machine
There's some pretty old grease in these machines, and with oxidation, the grease tends to slow down the movement of parts. My first suggestion would be to take the gray bottom off the machine, take the white cover over the free arm off the machine, and hit the linkage down here with lots of patient hair dryer time. I just "fixed" a 385 which would not go into reverse. Reverse is driven by a spring, the button actually allows the spring to reposition a cam on the main shaft. The old grease kept the spring from moving the cam.
