Question and Answers

Q:

Reverse switch not working 38517124790 Kenmore Sewing machine

A:

We do not have a service manual for this specific model sewing machine. The reverse switch operation is all mechanical. You will need to remove the control panel and inspect the mechanical operation of the reverse switch when pressed. To remove the control panel, unplug the sewing machine and remove the top cover, the belt cover and the base plate. Push the reverse lever down and see if all the linkage is moving or not. It could have a bent or broken linkage. I recommend taking the sewing machine in for repair if you do not feel confident in removing the control panel and check the reverse switch linkage.
