What size needle is best for general sewing on cotton fabric for Kenmore 158-15510
The slightly rounded point of a universal needle is sharp enough to pierce woven cotton fabrics, but not so sharp it will damage knits. It comes in sizes ranging from 60/8 to 120/19-but a reasonable starting point is the 80/12 size

What caused white fuse to open twice?
If your transformer is shorted somehow it could get very hot. This would also cause a high current flow that would blow a fuse. Remove the transformer and replace it and replace the blown fuses.
Kenmore 153.392: my hand wheel will not move the needle up and down. Should I replace the belt? What else could be causing this.
The drive belt only brings power from the motor to the mechanism driven by the hand wheel. Some machines have more than one belt; the other belts are part of the stitch selection mechanism. However, I'm not sure about your model. http://www.searsarchives.com/history/files/sewing_id.pdf
lists a 158.492 and a 148.392 but no 153.392. A more likely issue for an older sewing machine is that the stop motion mode is engaged. This disengages the needle bar connection. Does your machine have a knob inside the hand wheel? If so, hold the hand wheel and turn the knob away from you (clockwise). For other machines, check if the bobbin winding mechanism needs to be moved to the left. If these aren't the case, then a linkage between the hand wheel and the needle bar isn't connected properly. The machine would need to be disassembled to find the problem. For any machine with a computer control, this is best done by a sewing machine repair technician unless you have experience with repairing electronics.
I hope this helps. Please add a comment if you misread the model number for further assistance on how the bobbin winding mechanism might be stopping the needle bar. I have assumed that you can freely turn the hand wheel.
