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.

Manual for kenmore 77573

Kenmore appliances have a three digit prefix in the model number. This indicates the manufacturer. Without the prefix, it's hard to fix the appliance. Kenmore doesn't have many older manuals available online to begin with. However, none of the common Kenmore sewing machine prefixes link to a model 77573. (Some Kenmore manuals are available here: https://www.sewingpartsonline.com/kenmore-sewing-machine-instruction-manuals.aspx?sort.ss_cat_sort=desc&index=302 .) If I plug in the prefix 795, I find a Kenmore refrigerator 795.77573600. That model's manual is available here: https://www.searspartsdirect.com/manual/2wr6z5ofl5-000583/kenmore-elite-79577573600-bottom-mount-refrigerator . Please add a comment with the prefix and confirm the type of appliance that you have. Check if the actual model number shows additional digits, as well. For kitchen appliances, many of the prefixes are listed here: https://www.electrical-forensics.com/MajorAppliances/KenmoreWhoMadeIt.html . Some of the sewing machine prefixes are here https://www.sewusa.com/Sewing_Machine_Manuals/kenmore_Sewing_Machines.htm . Cindy Wells

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. Cindy Wells
