If it is an older mechanical machine, the machine is most likely seizing due to lack of oil. While it is in its current condition, it is best to not further stress the motor by forcing it to move parts that are seizing. Doing so could eventually damage the motor.

This is a technique I have used successfully on older seized machines.

Wheel on right side that controls the needle up and down is very tight...

Sewing machine Kenmore 385 reverse does not always work how can I fix it


The reverse will stick over time due to lack of lubrication and not being used very often. I would recommend finding a tech and having it serviced. Most of these problems are cleared when the machine is being serviced.

The bobbin winding mechanism on my Sears Kenmore model 2142 doesn't work. I have to wind my bobbins by hand! How do I fix this feature?


If you don't want to pay for a service call, you can purchase a handy implement (a stand-alone bobbin winder) for about $30 at the local fabric store or online.

Model 2142. Motor runs but why doesn't belt move for regular sewing?


Make sure the bobbin winder has not been activated. When the bobbin winder is activated, the needle bar is deactivated. The belt could also be stretched, damaged, or broken.

If it is a mechanical machine, how long has it been since a thorough cleaning and oiling?

It was working now it seems to be frozen the needle part wont move

I need a sewing machine kenmore model 2142 manual. any help?


Hi. Could you please verify the model number as I couldn't find model 2142 listed. Most Kenmore models begin with a three number prefix (385 or 158 most commonly, but also 148, 117, and 877).

Thanks!

Kenmore 2142 sewing machine won't zigzag.


Before you put the cam in did you make sure the machine was set on straight stitch and then select zig zag?
