There is a small motor that extends and retracts the lens, sometimes the gears and motor jam up causing poor visual quality, to repair the camera would not be cost effective to fix, it is cheaper to replace it rather than the alternative.

yes you could have the noise reduced by having someone come out and check the center bearing as well as the motor if it is the main seal on the other hand its not even worth repairing cost to much to have a technician repair main seal in a washer usually 4-600 just for that type of job. Its actually cheaper to just buy a new one compared to fixing one with that type of problem please write me back with your model number so i can send you some diagrams if you choose to investigate the problem further if you have any further questions please message me back and please remember to rank how this opinion has helped in your appliance situation thanks again

I have a Pfaff 1222E sewing machine which needs a new motor

Good for you, to repair a great machine instead of buying some more modern, disposable machine!
I found a generic motor that will fit your machine at Free delivery within the UK, but that doesn't help much, does it? There's several places in the U.S., like
You'll probably need to look for a generic motor for your Pfaff, but they should be out there.
I did check eBay; they do have generic sewing machine motors, but unless you're very experienced with eBay, I'd be very careful there.
Check with your local sewing machine dealer/repair place (even if they don't carry Pfaffs). Maybe they can help.
Good luck--I wish I could be more helpful, but let me know if anything I've sent helps, ok?

I am looking for a motor for a Kenmore 153.392. It is a motor #605.It is a very old machine and works wonderfully except the motor is getting very hot and looks like rubber is being pushed out the...

This motor has been discontinued by Sears and is no longer available. That being said, judging by the schematics I saw, I think a Clever mechanic should be able to use a standard motor and your old connector box to make a workable substitute. Talk to a mechanic you trust who is willing to go the extra mile because this is going to take a while. The labor costs may be prohibitive. No matter what , the repair will exceed the current resale value of this machine. In plain English, it will be less expensive to buy a new machine than to repair this one. Just be sure to try it out before you take it home.

Won't spin

the main motor bearings have seized up. The cure is a replacement motor or a new machine. Unless you can do it yourself it will be cheaper to buy a new machine as a new motor costs around $250.
