Question about Kenmore 19233 Computerized Sewing Machine

1 Answer

Beeps several times and stops sewing.

The machine will be sewing along fine, then beep 2-3 times and stop suddenly. Simply lifting my foot off the pedal allows me to sew again for a few inches.

    My Pacesetter PE300S will sew normally and then when I press the footfeed, it will only sew 3-6 stitches & stop. I let up on the footfeed & press it again and it again sews 2-6 stitches & stops. This goes on & on - then it sews normally for weeks. What am I doing that causes this?

    this machine was not used for about 3 years then pulled out of storage when my other machine went in for maintenance. It worked great for about a week before suddenly shutting down.

I had the same problem. Through trial and error, I found the problem was with the thread tension. Usually the thread became wrapped around the spool holder as it was coming off the spool. As you continue to press the pedal, tension is created. When you release the pedal, some slack develops in the threading process and you are able to sew a few more stitches before the beeping starts again. If the thread is caught on the spool holder, simple re-thread the machine.That generally works for me. Also you can try to push to spool holder in as close as possible to the spool pin to alleviate any gaps. If the beeping continues to happen, place you thread in a cup behind the machine and thread as usual. You can also purchase an inexpensive thread holder. I made one out of a wood block and other odds and ends found around the house. Good Luck!

Bernina activa 220 won't stop running - sometimes


I've seen other remarks about this problem and one of the suggestions was a bad capacitor. I had problems with my 930 having intermittent starts & stops and we replaced the bushings in the foot control which took care of it.

Slow sewing regardless of speed setting


I'm thinking that the problem is in the foot control
take the foot control to a sewing machine repair shop and have it checked out
you say it appears aftermarket--probably is to replace a faulty OEM unit

Error code & would not sew after 2 uses.

Customer review by DeZooMT

1.0 stars by DeZooMT
Got this as a Christmas gift. Have used it twice since then for little things. Seemed to be fine. Decorative stitches worked and the straight stitches turned out good too. But didn't last. Just took it out to use on a bigger project and it just stopped sewing. The foot pedal wouldn't work at all. The back stitch button would sew though. If you tapped the pedal aggressively at times it would delay and then jump forward 3 stitches and then display the C3 error code saying the foot pedal was disconnected, which it clearly wasn't. Tried the Singer CS line. Was caller number 20, was on hold for 40 mins when I finally got down to caller number 4. All of a sudden the operator hung up the call and stated "their offices are now closed." I was furious. Needles to say, it went back to WalMart and I won't be buying another one.

Was sewing along,straight stitchin,machine simply stopped! Like no power anymore but light is on! 1 expert:foot pedal bad but PEDAL IS POWERING MOTOR! Correct resistance ohms?


If it's a mechanical machine (not computerized), it may need a good cleaning and oiling. Consult your owner's manual and use only good quality sewing machine oil.

I get an E2 error on my Brother CP7500 and the button lever is all the way up


A stitch other than the buttonhole or bar tack stitch was selected and the foot controller was pressed (or the start/stop button was pressed if the foot controller is not connected) while the buttonhole lever is lowered.

Raise the buttonhole lever before continuing the operation.
Each time a key pressed or an incorrect operation is performed, a beep is sounded.
  • For a correct operation
    One beep is sounded.
  • If an incorrect operation is performed
    Two or four beeps are sounded.
  • If the machine locks up, for example, because the thread is tangled
    The sewing machine continues to beep for four seconds.
    The machine automatically stops.
    Be sure to check for the cause of the error, and correct it before continuing to sew.

Machine starts beeping and stops sewing everytime I try to sew


Ok, first of all never do that trying to force it to work thing. It is beeping because there is a problem. Stop... unplug it, remove your work and discover what is wrong. (Likely that you've got thread under the bottom of the feed dogs ... but it could be something entirely computer related... since these are computers... they don't like extreme heat OR cold.
