There's a possibility that your foot pedal is sticking; if that is the case, it's probably overriding the stop button. See if you can take the cover off and clean it using alcohol, and leaving it open for a couple of hours to make sure it has dried. Visually check the wires while it's open, too, to see if you can see any fraying, and make sure the plug on the machine side is firmly seated in the machine.

Buy a new foot pedal for it, probably one of the electrical components inside the foot has failed.

There are Kenmore footcontrols for sale on www.sewingpartsonline.com. You could email them to check its right for your model if it isn't listed.

Obviously I'm assuming that you are in USA with 110 Voltage and that is what your machine is. If not and your country is 220V, you would need to source it from a reseller in your own country or another with the same voltage.

My aunt just gave me this Baby Lock Pro Line Serger BL4-738D 4 Thread Is this a good machine.


Baby Lock is a very good serger. Have you ever used one before? If not, be sure to read through the manual carefully before you try to use it. They're not just like other sewing machines. Enjoy.

Don't know what the blue buttons on Sew D'Lite are for.


The top one with the bobbin on it is for winding a bobbin. When you press it the bobbin winder spins around. The bottom two are for if you don't want to use the foot pedal. The second of these two, which has a O/I sign on it, makes the machine stop and start. The one with the snail and the rabbit controls the speed.

Sewing machine stops sews a minute slows down or stops then starts up


I suggest having the machine checked at a sewing machine shop
to see if there is something wrong with the motor, or the foot pedal
but first check to make sure the power cord & foot pedal are
connected correctly

Hot to stop a a previous transmition


If you don't have the transmission box up with the "Cancel" button up, then there's a few steps you have to take. First, close the software on your computer. Next, turn of the sewing machine. Unplug the USB cord both from the sewing machine and from the back of your PC. Now plug the USB back into the computer, then the sewing machine & turn the machine back on. Finally, reopen the software. This should clear the "buffer" between your computer and the machine of the pending transmission. I've had to do this every time I have a finished design before I can start a new one.

Start/stop button problem will the machine run on its own


You have to unplug the power cord to the the foot pedal. The manual doesn't include this. And good stinkin luck with Sears or Kenmore customer service! Just pull the cord out of the machine and the start/stop button will work. Try it on a slower setting at first though. Also, if you need additional presser feet, Singer, Brother, Janome, and possibly other brands will usually work as long as they are the snap on type. I really do like my machine, good luck with yours!

Start/stop button is not working.


When you have the embroidery unit connected to the machine, you must have the foot pedal cord disconnected. Then it should work. As for using this machine for normal sewing, yes, it is supposed to do that. Unless you get a lemon like mine. It lost reverse, and only takes long stitches. Hopefully your luck is better than mine with this Disney "thing".

Manual for Kenmore sewing machine, model 385.12812690


So far I've only been able to find this page. It's $8.00 to download. Considerably cheaper than a new machine!
