This may or may not help.. first UNPLUG it..then unscrew the light bulb and look at the base of the bulb socket.. you should see a tang there ( small tab) that makes contact with the bulb.. sometimes that gets compressed to a point that it won't make electrical contact with the bulb or intermittent contact and the bulb flickers.. You may also have a loose wire on the socket terminals too.. Depending on your electrical skil level, you may or may not want to look into repairing that yourself.. Hope this helps..

How long is sewing thread good for


As long as sewing thread is kept in a dry place - often a biscuit tin or one that has held confectionary is used - then it should remain in good condition for a very long time. I have cotton which is probably 30 years old, and some inherited reels which could be up to 50 years old and which are still in perfect condition.

Hello I have an old sewing machine and would like to know what its worth it was my moms about 50 years ago its a kenmore 117-552 Serial n is 376239/ tHANKS


Hi. Unfortunately, sewing machines were manufactured by the millions and those from 50 years ago are still going strong and readily available. The value of any sewing machine is determined by how much someone is willing to pay for it. There are some older machines that collectors will pay good money for, if the machine is in excellent shape and has all the attachments. To get an idea of what people are willing to pay for your machine, check the listings in Ebay. There is a vintage kenmore group on yahoo groups that you can check also.

Hope this helps,

Thread goes off screw when i start sewing


Could it be that the feed dogs are down? I also have the 15358 and when I opened the bobbin area to clean it, I had this problem. Apparently, when you open the clips around the outside of the casing, it pushes the lever that adjusts the feed dogs to the right (lowering them). I didn't even realize it at first. Check your manual for adjusting this lever to raise the feed dogs. That might solve your problem.

Kenmore foot peddle going too fast to sew


The problem is either in the foot control or there is a short in your wiring. You can replace the foot control and hope that's where the problem is or Take it to a technician to be sure..The foot control will probably cost around $30-$50.

Inserting needle on old singer machine


Hi Terry--

If your machine is 40-50 years old, it might be a Singer Featherweight portable. (If it is, you have one of the very best machines ever made!) On the Featherweights, the flat of the needle faces left (and the needle is threaded from right to left). The bobbin goes in a bobbin case; you'll see a small notch when you look down on the bobbin in the case. That's where the thread goes. I'll email you direct with more information.
