    Reply to your enquiry dated April 9,2011. When I plug in my machine the light comes on but not the control board. When I first plugged it in an "ER" showed on the control board at which time I cleaned the feed dog but that did not fix the problem. How do I get behind the control board to see if the connectors are okay?

    I took the above machine to Haney Sewing and Sound they sent it away to get repaired and today I received the message that it has electronic problems and the parts are no longer available.

If it does not come ON.Then it can be issue with power supply cord or there is a short in control board.First the power has to be checked to the machine on board.It has to be checked by meter.If there is no power, then its short in the power supply wire cord.But if there is power to the board, then its short in the control board.The connectors on the board needs to be checked.Also unplug the plug in connectors from the control board.Then reconnect it after 10 minutes then recheck.In some cases, this resets the board and it comes ON and machine starts working.Done remove the soldered connections from the board, only the plug in connectors.---------- This should help.Keep updated.Thanks.Helpmech.

    The control board is just fitted by few screws.To access the control board, the front upper body of the machine has to be disassembled.The control board sits in there.Its all fitted by screws.But take care , you note down each screw and part fitting position before removing.This will help, while refitting.--------
    Thanks.Helpmech.

I got the Sliding Buttonhole Foot for my Kenmore Sensor 70 Model 385-19950180 but the manual has little information on how to use it. Is there a video where I can learn?


There are a lot of videos on YouTube. Just search for something like: sewing machine buttonhole

Most sliding buttonhole accessories work the same from machine to machine.

What needles does the kenmore sew 70 use


The owner's manual should tell you what type needle you need. Within that type (probably 130/705) there are various needles suitable for anything from sewing chiffon to leather.

How old is my sears Kenmore sensor sew 70 model# 3851950180? Iwould like to know if it can be repaired


Almost any machine CAN be repaired, but it may not be worth the money to get it repaired and with older machines finding parts can be a real problem.

If you call Sears and tell them the model and serial number they should be able to tell you the age of the machine, and whether or not they are still willing to repair a machine like it. They may not have parts though.. sometimes independent repair shops are a better bet. Ebay is often a good source for old machine parts too.

Hello I have an old sewing machine and would like to know what its worth it was my moms about 50 years ago its a kenmore 117-552 Serial n is 376239/ tHANKS


Hi. Unfortunately, sewing machines were manufactured by the millions and those from 50 years ago are still going strong and readily available. The value of any sewing machine is determined by how much someone is willing to pay for it. There are some older machines that collectors will pay good money for, if the machine is in excellent shape and has all the attachments. To get an idea of what people are willing to pay for your machine, check the listings in Ebay. There is a vintage kenmore group on yahoo groups that you can check also.

Hope this helps,

Robbie

Turns on does not work


It probably has a bad circuit board, I don't think they are available though.
Sorry!

Serger


As long as this is a sewing machine and not a serger, I don't know about them. I only tinker on my own. Remove the bottom. There is a rod running along the length of the machine. it needs to be turned 180 degrees. You may need to retime the machine.
