What would cause my Kenmore sewing machine's light to turn on but the motor seem to have no power?


The wiring for the older Kenmore is simple. The light switch completes the connection to the light. If the foot pedal has failed or connection loose where the wire attaches from the foot-pedal the motor will not run.

Also if the brushes in the motor are worn or failing to contact the motor internally the motor will not run.

With light on and pedal partially depressed attempt to activate motor to determine if brush connection are faulty. If the motor reacts at all the brushes will likely need to be replaced.

No success borrow a foot pedal from a friend or sewing center to determine if the pedal control is faulty.

Hope this helps?

I would like a wiring schematic for the speed control transformer and light on a old Necchi Mira sewing machine, please.


the light wires are not to be connected to the speed control but have a separate circuit to the on / off switch
if you have the light connected to the speed control then as the resistance to the motor is decreased it affects the power available to the light

I have a bernina 1015 that burned out the circuit board. I replaced it with a new one and now the light dims and goes out when sewing.


Your post says 1015...Did you mean 1008, 1001, 1011? If so the PCB will be a type 290. After market foot controls are not recommended for this machine. You original PCB can be repaired... "> SewTechnical Home

Husqvarna viking diamond deluxe embroidery machine main motor overload


I'm not familiar with the Diamond machine but suggest the following. The motor is overheating. Is the sewing machine cord plugged directly into an outlet or are you using extension cords? Voltage drop due to long or light duty cords can cause the motor to run hot.
Can you trun the handwheel freely? If not, there is friction or binding in the machine that needs to be corrected. The blank screen and reboot are simply protection devices like a circuit breaker in your home electrical circuits. Find the source of the problem!

My Bernina 180 marchine becomes warm on the work service (the lower part on the right side of the pressure feet) and also on the top of the machine. Could it be the motor?


Dont think it would be the motor the moter is on the right side below the handwheel, you can see the vent.
Could it just be the light bulb, they get very hot.
The motor on that machine is solid, never had a bad one.
When you say warm do you meen HOT, there is going to be heat generated from the motor, light and movent that goes on it there this is normal.

Sewing Machine light flickers/dims while sewing.


There may be a loose connection. If this is a brand new machine the warranty should cover the repair.

Check the return policy at Sears/K-Mart as it may be better to return it for a replacement.

There is no speed adjust, but 1st you must know the source of the slow down. Remove the belt from the motor pulley and run it, if it goes fast try turning the hand wheel if it is stiff the machine needs clean and oil. If it turns freely you motor may be dirty or just slow. If dirty, sometimes you can without the blet attached run it at full speed for 10 to 15 minutes. It should get faster as you run it. If not motor is weak or slow needs replace. Just replacement motor as genuine probably no longer available.

Light dims when you sew


the problem is that the cord that was replaced on it is too light for the sewing machine. some companies sell cords that are made with 18awg wire 18awg wire can only deliver enough electricity to run the motor sapping up all of the power from the light as soon as you push the pedal. you need to get a cord made by singer or rewire your cords with 16awg wire... 16awg wire is the standard wire for all vintage singer sewing machines it keeps the light nice and bright...... hope this helps
