Not all blades are the EXACT same size. I’m sure that Sears has many manufacturers of blades.
Just for kicks, you might compare the size with the original 1/4 blade.
Your tension may be off on the 3/16 blade. (blade is a mite too big in circumference) Sounds like flutter, to me.
One method is to turn it on and increase the tension until the flutter subsides.
