My sewing machine quit while I was sewing and displayed the E1 error. It is a Kenmore sewing machine model 385.19233. I have tried turning it off and on numerous times and the error does not clear.
The E1 error code indicates that a fuse is blown on the control board. The image below shows the fuse that corresponds to the E1 error code. NOTE: Be sure to unplug the sewing machine before you access any internal parts.You can order the replacement fuse from Sears PartsDirect website. NOTE: Order the 3.15A fuse (part number 000182177 -- you MUST use the leading zero's on the part number to get the correct fuse) instead of the original fuse (2.5A). This is a recent technical recommendation from the manufacturer that will help prevent the fuse from continuing to blow. (You may want to order an extra one.)
