Try turning all your tension settings to 0, then set them again!

Anybody know what settings are needed for 'the freehand/darning' I am not sure that is what it is called, but I want to freehand our names on our Christmas stockings!

Manual/Instructions for a Kenmore 12 model 385-81512. Hello, I was given this sewing machine by a close friend without the manual and I absolutely cannot find any information on it. Please help!! Thank...


You may try contacting Sears. They have manuals for the 81510 and 81514, so one of those may be close enough to your machine. Usually, the only difference between models may be the number of decorative stitches, a couple extra options, or even the number of accessories, etc.

Does my kenmore sewing machine Model number 5151 do zig zag stitch?


I was able to find this photo on the internet. If your machine looks something like this

then it most likely has zig-zag. There are a lot of dials and levers on this machine. Most straight stitch machines have only one or two. One dial/lever with numbers from 0-4 or 5 would be the stitch length. The other dial/lever with numbers from 0-4 or 5 would be stitch width, which would make a zig-zag stitch.

My Kenmore Mini Ultra sewing machine won't sew the button stitch. I have followed the instructions on the manual but still the thread does not get sewn onto the fabric. Simple straight stitches are ok


it's possible that there could be a problem with the gear or cam that does the button hole stitch

try a different needle--one for the fabric being sewed
try a different bobbin --make sure the bobbin is not warped or damaged
try different thread-- use EVERY thread guide

make sure the bobbin is wound correctly--inserted correctly in to the bobbin case--and turned the right way.

Adjust the stitches on my 385.19233 what the instruction manuel say is not working


Is this a stitch selection issue? A stitch width or stitch length issue? What stitch are you attempting to use, and on what fabric?

Hi i want to buy a sewing machine wich one is best. kenmore or brothers sewing machine


Hi,

I would prefer Kenmore, enmore makes perhaps the largest selection of mechanical machines. The very cheapest Kenmore sewing machines, like the Kenmore Mini (*est. $100) and Kenmore 15208 (*est. $120), stick with a four-step buttonhole, and have just six and eight stitches, respectively. The Kenmore 15212 (*est. $150) and Kenmore 15218 (*est. $170) both have a one-step buttonhole. The cheaper Kenmore 15212 has 12 stitches. The slightly more expensive model has 18 stitches, including a smocking stitch, overcast and elastic stretch stitch in addition to the basics. Both Kenmore sewing machines are good, basic models, say reviews. Both have just a 90-day warranty, however. Bear in mind that Kenmore sewing machines are made by different Asian companies each year, resulting in varying degrees of quality; this also explains the low prices. Some users report difficulty with tension and light fabrics.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Machine sews only in reverse


Be sure you are in the correct stitch pattern...if you are on a buttonhole stitch or a stretch stitch it normal for the machine to sew backwards. Be sure your length is to the right of 0 and not in a strtch stitch model or buttonhole mode.
