Sears carries Kenmore manuals, but they are not free. Although, probably a worthwhile purchase considering the information you would have access to.

How to thread kenmore sear roebuck sewing machine model 158. 1789181 got at auction no books


Sears carries a lot of manuals for their machines, although usually not free. In the meantime, there are many threading videos that demonstrate machine threading. Machines of similar models will thread similarly.

Probably best to raise the presser foot when threading so the thread will seat in the tension disk.

Before trying to sew, be sure to oil your machine with fresh, good quality sewing machine oil. Open the top, the side near the needle bar, and turn it on its back to get the underside. Place a couple drops of oil every place that metal rubs on metal. Adding hot air from a handheld hairdryer will make the oil effective quicker.

Be sure to install a brand new needle and use good quality thread--not old or bargain bin variety!

On the top left, there is probably a push button. This is the presser foot pressure adjustment. When the machine is stored, this pop-up button should be released (press down on the outer ring). Being stored with the pressure full on will eventually compress the spring that provides the pressure. Also, be sure to store the machine with the presser foot in the down position (preferably on a piece of scrap fabric). Avoid running the machine with the presser foot in direct contact with the feed dogs as this will wear the feed dogs and also create grooves in the presser foot.

I need a manual


Which brand and model do you have? Singer has many of their manuals (Singer or White brands) for sale or download at http://www.singerco.com/accessories/instruction-manuals . For Janome, Bernina or Husqvarna Viking manuals, ask at a dealer. Many of the older manuals may be free - at least for Bernina manuals. Brother has a some of their manuals on their support site: http://www.brother-usa.com/manuals/#.T2e8Wdk_9G8 . Use the drop-down menu to select Home or Industrial Sewing machine and then look for the model. A machine sold at Sears (such as the Kenmore line) may have the manual at Manage My Life: http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/owner_manuals . Unfortunately, they don't have many of their older sewing machine manuals online.

There are also sewing machine parts sites that may have the manuals for sale.

Please add a comment with the make and model of your sewing machine and I'll try to provide more information.

Need manual: Kenmore sewing machine 158.9


Those books are long since out of print. Try contacting sewing machine stores who stock old instruction books. Many shops do this. Or try eBay.
