You need to purchase a foot control with a M&L block and that will fix you up. The only place that will carry those is a sewing machine store.

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?

Why is the motor of my sears kenmore sewing machine model 385.12714 running really slow? The machine has not been used for at least a year or two. We oiled it. It is sewing, but at a snail's pace.


it could be different things
have you checked to make sure the plug is correctly in the machine
one time I was sewing on my necchi electronic machine & it for some reason was going slow like you mentioned & so I started checking different thing & found the cord to the foot pedal was laying in side the foot pedal & it couldn't go any faster untill I moved the cord out of the way
it could also be the motor
& also the power cord & foot pedal
it's possible it needs to be serviced since it's been sitting up so long & since it's sewing at a snails pace

Machine is powered on. When I press the presserfoot there is no sewing action. The machine emits a soft beep as long as I hold down the presserfoot.


hi, it could be several things
MACHINE DOES NOT RUN
1.the motor belt is probably broken
2.the motor belt may be loose-needs to be serviced

MOTOR DOES NOT RUN
1.the electrical cord may be defective-replace
2.the motor maybe burned out-smell the motor to see if it smells like a dirty pair of socks, if the motor smells it needs to be repalced
3.the foot pedal may be defective-replace

I have a necchi model number 537fa. the light comes on but the pedal and motor isnt running. you can manuely move the needle up and down, but the machine isnt running. could it be a belt?


If it is a belt problem, you should be able to hear the motor running. If you cant hear the motor running then it has to be the foot control or cord or possibly the motor.

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
