I have a Kenmore sewing machine model 19030.
Recently it gives me a message (STOP FOR SAFETY), it doesn't work any more, when I start it, runs only for one turn then gives me that message,
Please advise to fix this problem
My Kenmore 19606 sometimes gives me that error message when I am holding my fabric taut (on either side of the foot) and I accidentally exert pressure on the needle (that is, tug forward or back on the fabric pulling at the needle)... I found that when it gives me that message and then pauses for a while, cranking a few stitches by hand seems to "recalibrate" it if you will, and bring it back to normal operation sooner... If you're not a tugger like me... =op =o) Maybe the needle needs replaced? It might be slightly bent, or not screwed in properly..?? Don't know if that helps! Good luck!

You have to unplug the power cord to the the foot pedal. The manual doesn't include this. And good stinkin luck with Sears or Kenmore customer service! Just pull the cord out of the machine and the start/stop button will work. Try it on a slower setting at first though. Also, if you need additional presser feet, Singer, Brother, Janome, and possibly other brands will usually work as long as they are the snap on type. I really do like my machine, good luck with yours!
When I have this problem, I turn the knob back and forth (gently) to try to get the needle to release and lift. I get this error message when the needle has shifted (either in the fabric or from using the machine alot at the needle placement shifts).
check your needle, it probably has shifted a bit.
