Question about Kenmore Sewing Machines

1 Answer

Kenmore Sewing Machine

I'm a disabled & retired, sewing machine & vac serv. tech for Sears.

My Mother's sewing machine began making a clicking noise and then goes into err mode and won't do anything. When turning off and back on, it repeats the same symptoms.
The noise sounds like it's coming from a box next to the motor, but not sure what that's called or if that's the problem. But I was unable to detect any mechanical problem, so I suspect that's it's electrical. I don't have my repair books for this type of machine at present location, so I'd appreciate if you can assist in diagnosing this problem, so I can get the correct part, if needed.

Thank You for you time and assistance!

My Kenmor sewing machine started making a very loud squealing noise coming from inside. How can I fix it?

Is it your tension belt? If it is under warranty, call Sears. If not, take it in to Sears sewing machine department and ask a salesman, they usually are good about helping you out. Without seeing your machine, I don't think we can help you. We would only be guessing what is wrong.

Go to Sears and talk to their sewing machine dept, I am sure that the salesperson will explain it to you for free. You need to have instruction beyond a book. If, you cannot go to Sears, check with your neighbors, there has to be one that sews or your local high school, Home ec teacher. Good luck
