How to Identify and Fix Common Vacuum Problems ?

Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced Vacuum Technicians :

The sewing machines with model numbers beginning with 385 were first manufactured in 1965. Therefore, most of them are likely to have the production date between 1965 and 1987.
Serger thread is tempting to use in your domestic sewing machine because it`s cheap (the giant cones can cost under $5), but it isn`t made for your personal machine. If you use a cone of serger thread instead of regular, all-purpose thread, it will break and jam in your sewing machine.
The brand first appeared on a four-drawer drop feed sewing machine sold from 1913 to 1919. The first Kenmore washing machine was introduced in 1927.
By matching the serial number to the corresponding date, you can determine the exact age of the machine. Quality also plays an important part in the value of the model. As expected, high quality, functioning machines are more sought after than damaged ones and tend to be a better option.
The American sizing system is numbered from 8 to 18. For both sizing systems, the lower the number the finer the needle and the higher the number the larger the needle.
The first number follows the Gunze Count standard and indicates the thread size. The larger the number, the finer the thread (a 50/2 will be thinner than a 30/2). The second number indicates the number of strands, or plies, twisted together.

My Singer Sewing machine (model 6215) is now only sewing in reverse. After pressing the backstitch button, the button seemed to stick in the backstitch position. I was finally able to pull the button out but my machine continues to only stitch backwards. What do I do now?
ANSWER : It’s stuck inside. Open it up so you can see inside the bottom, look for the feed dog mechanism and you’ll find where length of step is varied, this is where the reversing takes place too. Tapping gently and oiling will free it up.

I would love to know what knowledge you have gained about this machine. It does not appear to be an easy machine to find info on, may not have produced a lot? I had no idea it was not a European produced machine.

Our beautiful Bernina 730 sewing machine has been stored in the garage in its original case, and that wrapped in plastic, for a few years now. Temperatures have been both hot and cold in the garage, but the environment was dust-free.

We have brought the Bernina in, set it up, oiled it as specified in the manual, with the original sewing machine oil. We have correctly threaded the machine and the bobbin thread is up.

When we press on the pedal to sew, the machine gets electricity and buzzes

ANSWER : Hello and thank you for using Fixya ….
From what you describe there can be only 2 causes…Either the machine is still stuck ..and the motor buzzes cause it can not spin it ..and in this case it needs to be oiled more..and be spun by hand until it moves well and free…and after that it will work ..or during the storage ..from condense or so ..the motor is stuck ..and needs to be checked…In this second case ..it probably need to be oiled too (the motor ) ..and the coils changed..
Have a nice day ..!

My Singer Izek sewing machine starts and stops and wont sew continuously. When I push down the pedal it sews about 2 inches then stops and light starts flashing, I have to let off of the pedal and push it again, over and over. It did this once before for awhile and then just started sewing right for awhile and now its started it again. I’ve checked everything.
ANSWER : If it’s not the thread and not the pedal then it’s definitely a power problem. You need to replace the power cable and then check again the functionality.

G-5 Kirby self-propel works intermitently. The handle must be jiggled until it engages forward. The same for reverse. Once underway it will continue indefinitely until the need to change direction. Jiggle go forward,jiggle go in reverse. It seems as though it helps to push the handle at an angle to the left depressing the switch on the left side at the base of the vacuum head.
ANSWER : Sounds like a loose wire, the wire is connected to the handle, you may be able to fix this yourself but be careful you can void the warranty by doing it your self. (most people make the problem worse) remember your kirby has a lifetime warranty (limited) the first 3 years anything and everything, after that for 175 dollars you can send it in and get it rebuilt to the newest model no matter how old it is as long as the person is still alive that signed the warranty card.

hope that helped.

The presser foot is stuck in the down position on my sewing machine. The lever goes up and down but the foot will not move. Help! I have an old Kenmore 22 sewing machine. Probably got it around 1990. The model number is 385.17622.
ANSWER : If you open the left end of the machine .. look inside above the needle and to the back .. you will see a pivot bolt that has either come loose, broken off or fallen out .. replacing that bolt should fix the problem ..

Borrowed Brother XR7700 Sewing Machine

consistent with motor noise.

2d: In order to check threading had to manually PULL bobbin case toward me or it was UNDER needle plate. Cleaned a fair amount of dust out. Reinstalled bobbin, etc., per manual, rethreaded.

3rd: Will sew 2-3 stitches, then packs up again just like in 1st instance above. Have st

ANSWER : Have you checked your needle. it could probably be bent somehow. you should replace it first because that also can confuse the sensor causing that error.

I am attempting to transfer embroidery patterns from my computer to my Innovis 900D sewing machine. I connected the USB cord and placed the files onto the correct drive, but when I go to retrieve them on the sewing machine itself- the data counter at the top show they are there (156/476KB) but I cannot see them on the screen to select and retrieve them. What should I try?
ANSWER : It means the stitch count is too large for the embroidery area. Make sure the pattern is 3.94 mm x 3.94 mm or that the stitch count is not too large
