If it were a matter of the LCD screen being blank when you powered up, the likely solution would be to adjust the contrast controls. But in this instance, you have the screen going blank during an operation. Lacking any more detail about the problem, I can only refer you to the following self help item which may or may not correct the problem. You have not identified whether the machine continues to operate. https://support.brother.ca/app/answers/detail/a_id/134309/related/1/session/L2F2LzEvdGltZS8xNjIwNTc2NzQyL2dlbi8xNjIwNTc2NzQyL3NpZC9mVUJ1YV8waVpoSkV1cEhvUFQ2TFBid2xPWDQxd2V6VHB5Rmh3UHlzQkZmQk00JTdFM1BiOUUzcXhQbFo4QW05VjRNOWRXNFFiQlREanBLV1NSWHZVdkhtdHlzYUE0TDlyQmJGNGlUZ21fcDNVY093SWdvSE1UNSU3RTd3JTIxJTIx

Just repaired my wife's Kenmore with this problem. How it works:The machine sends power to the motor, and checks if it is turning by looking at expected pulses as light shines through a slotted disk attached to the shaft of the same motor. No Turn = "Overload" error. How it Presents: From the overload error: If you turn the motor shaft by hand first, then pressed the foot peddle it would run, but there was a "sweet" spot where; if the motor was turning slow enough, it would stop and the next time you pressed the peddle the "Overload" error would occur again. The Fix: In her case the motor has a poor solder joint on one winding of the motor. A manufacturing error that took years to manifest. A surprising simple repair, if you are comfortable with this sort of stuff. Just disassemble the motor and re-solder. Try it, otherwise the motor must be replaced.

I had the same problem. It started after I took the cover off to fix something else. After I screwed the cover back on, I kept getting the E1 message even when the foot was already down. I took the cover off again, and I found that there is a metal tab at the top left of the front cover, that is pushed by a metal tab in the back that moves when you put the presser foot up or down. You can see this metal tab moving in the back if you put the foot up and down with the cover off. Just putting the foot down(I think) before putting the cover back on fixed it so one metal tab is on the correct side of the other metal tab.

Hi....I also kept getting the check and rethread upper thread message, I\'d sew about 15 stitches and it\'d stop. Here\'s what I did. On the left of the machine, in the back there is a screw....loosen that screw, take cover off, then lift straigt up and out on the cover that has the 3 on it in your threading seqence. Next, I started inspecting and cleaning the thread route from top to bottom. Lo and behold....I get to the place where you come down the front of the machine and turn to go back up and I spot a little slit in the plastic piece so, when I was threading the machine I guess I was pulling it to far to the left causing it to wear a little slit in that piece....so, I finished cutting it off with a utility knife, used an emery board to smooth it down, put the covers back on and it works GREAT!!!! Who would\'ve ever that it\'d be so easy and save me a bunch of money!!! I sure hope this helps someone.

Replacing the belt is a cheap and easy fix if it is the belt slipping. however, the fact is stops at the same place makes that that the machine needs servicing and re-timing.

F05 error, speed sensor. I fixed successfully 2 of those. Speed sensor is located on a small board, under a protective plastic, located over the main front board. Remove front panel and bobin winder assembly. Remove the 2 screws of the small board. Remve CAREFULLY the small bord. Under, on the main shaft, are located the needle positionning sensors and the wheel of the speed sensor (left wheel on the shaft). The speed sensor is located on the board itself, it's very small. Clean carefully both the wheel and the sensor with Q-Tips and alchool, reassemble the whole thing and it should restart.While U are there, take a thin nozzle oiler and lubrificate all the suppots of upper and lower shaft, all the needle bar mechanism and rotary hook central shaft and gears WITH VERY THICK oil. Needle bas assembly is the most critical point. I have 14 of those machines, almost all of those seized there before I learn how to lubrificate it. Also seized on the bottom shaft and on rotary hook pin
