Kenmore Ultra Stitch 10 Won't Sew

I am half way through a quilt and the needle just stopped sewing. The foot pedal still works and the belt is still intact and the hand wheel and clutch knob still turn, but the needle just won't move. When I use the hand wheel it will go up and down just not when I use the foot control. I opened up the top and it seems there is some connection lost somewhere between the belt and the needle. Help! This problem is not listed in the manual either.

I sew antique, vintage, and modern Singers-a completely different machine from the Sears Kenmore machines. If one of my modern (post '95) Singers was giving me the same trouble I would have it to the Singer repair tech in a heart beat, some things are beyond my skills! Now a treadle, lol, or a hand crank, no problem, but a modern electric has all kinds of new-fangled (computerised, electronic, silicone) parts that baffle me.

I'd say the best thing for you to do is contact Sears Canada and find a repairman close to you. Their sewing machine techs train on the Sears Kenmore sewing machines and have genuine Kenmore parts available to them at a fairly reasonable cost:


You can telephone to any sewing centre that adverts servicing all brands, too, which might save you some money but will usually void any warranty (if existent) and may not carry 'genuine Kenmore' parts-important for machine performance if your machine is newer built than 1995 or so.

Good luck, I hope you'll update us!

Hey Ashley.. I know it's four years later, but I have the same problem on my ultra stitch 6... Did you find a solution?
