Question about Sewing Machines

Open Question

A few buttons on our Kenmore microwave touch pad stopped working (we think after being exposed to high humidity). We have the control panel removed, but cannot get directly to the sensors for the touch pad to clean them. Is there a way to do this?

    I really do think that is the problem. However, we can't get past a certain point in taking the thing apart. There appears to be no way to get directly to the sensors for the touch pad. Do you know of a way to do this?

How do I fix my kenmore sewing machine. Model # 385. 1960180

Consult your manual, the Troubleshooting section. It should explain what the Code 5P means and how to correct it.

Position of Touch Panel.

It's been awhile, but I think you go into the test mode then hit one of the hard keys (start, threader, reverse). I know there is a backdoor for this.
On newer Brothers you touch the screen and hold while powering on, but I'm not sure yours does it that way.

Microwave oven RM-691 -- The oven light has gome out and I cannot seem to find where the light came from as there is no light bulb in sight. Can you help? It is an old machine made by Riccar Japan

Ok. I know that this question is old, but on the offhand that someone else is looking, I'll give input. The bulb that came out of mine is a Okusun 120V/15W bayonet mount, twin lead. The bulb I replace it with is a Sylvannia T7 number 15T7DC/BL/12 rated at 120V and 15W.

IF YOU ARE UNFAMILIAR AROUND ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT DON'T DO THIS. There are high voltage capacitors in this unit. Make sure you are unplugged and leave it to allow voltage to drain from the capacitors. By the way, I also found a fuse 15 amp if yours has stopped working.

Take the six screws from the top panel off. Two on top and four on rear of microwave. I also took the right side panel off (looking at the microwave), but I don't think you have to.

One screw holds down the bayonet mount and allows the removal and replacement of the bulb.

Replace in reverse order and you're good to go.

VIK ROSE 45010050 Stitch size button will go up but not down in size...

Possibly the touch pad is bad. Are they any other buttons that don't work? Usually when the touch pad is bad other buttons won't work either. If only the stitch length won't work then the step motor for the feed is bad or you have a bad board.

Needle stop up/down no longer works on Viking 118

sometimes the bobbin winder gets left closed, and that will make the machine run slowly and with no up/down button.

When I turn on my machine the needlehousing judders and stops at extreem left position and ERROR #1 comes up on screen

The temperature in the room the machine was at 28c and humidity was at 85%.

Switched aircon on and went out to dinner. Came back two/three hours later. Temperature was down to 23c and humidity to 30%.

Plugged machine back in and it worked straight off.

Seems the machine does not like high temp and high humidity.

It could be the touch panel or the main board. The touch panel ribbon connector could be loose but not likely. Needs to be diagnosed by a good tech. for Viking.

Not sure which machine you are referencing but if is the is highly recommended. There is literally no issues with this machine reported in the past 2 years it has been out.
CAN NOT GO WRONG! More than worth the $$ You will be please with the reliability of a mechanical machine with the benefit of a few "can't live with out" electronic features, up/down needle button. start/stop button, speed control lever! It pretty great. You can also go to and read soem other reviews form customers. It comes pretty highly rated.
