Question about Kenmore Drop-In Bobbin 16231 Mechanical Sewing Machine
Yes everything is plugged in and the light on the sewing machine is on, but nothing happens when the foot control is pressed
I've just fixed this problem by replacingthe main capacitor in the foot pedal. I have a Bernina 830. I needed a soldering iron, and I had to buy the right capacitor, but it fixed this exact problem. Btw, a few months ago this problem initially appeared (on my machine) as an issue where the speed was either zero, or full speed). After a white it wouldn't work at all.

Slide the bobbin spindle from the right to the left. You may have the clutch disengaged. Just push or the spindle. Do you hear a motor when you depress the foot pedal?
