SOURCE: Kenmore Sewing Machine model # c877.15

I have an old Kenmore and here are the directions from my manual: 1. Draw thread from spool through bobbin winder tension discs. 2. Wind thread around an empty bobbin several times. 3. Place bobbin onto bobbin winder shaft with thread coming from rear of bobbin. Push bobbin winder latch against bobbin until it clicks. 4. Release clutch by turning clutch knob toward you. Start machine.

SOURCE: reverse on kenmore sewing machine 385

I recommend that the machine be serviced by a professional but if you're handy it may simply need cleaning around the reverse cam. To do this place the machine on it's back. You'll need to access the rod that drives the feed dogs and cam mechanism by removing all screws holding the bottom plate of the machine. Remove the bottom plate. Note that when you push the reverse button, while turning the wheel a thin rod moves left which allows a plastic cam mounted to the cam rod to also move left and engages the feed dogs in reverse. If the cam is not moving enough or if too slow, it may be that the rod and cam need cleaning and lubrication. Clean out all lint and lubricate the cam where it moves on the shaft. Try to get it to move more freely without forcing it. When done replace the bottom plate. I just repaired my wifes machine and this solved the problem. Hope it helps.

SOURCE: instructions for theading a Sears Kenmore Sewing machine model 158.14000

all machines thread the same. TTN tension,take up, needle.
Beginning with the spool, guide the thread through the thread guides to the tension assembly. Pull the thread through the tension assembly and test it to make sure the tension is working correctly.
(To do this test,adjust your tension setting to normal or medium or 5 or something in the middle. Raise the presser foot and pull the thread through the tension. It should pull easily!! Lower the presser foot and pull the thread. It should pull noticeably harder.) If it passes this test, continue up through the take up lever,then down through the thread guides to the needle. Make sure your needle is fully inserted and turned the correct way.( If you load your bobbin case from the left side,the needle rule is normally FLAT to the RIGHT is RIGHT. There are some exceptions. If you have a newer style drop in bobbin or your bobbin case loads in the front then the rule is FLAT to the BACK.

To wind the bobbin, guide the thread around the thread guide on
the left top of your machine, then to the bobbin winder. Wind the thread around the bobbin several times, place the bobbin on top of the bobbin winder, push it against the wheel and press the foot pedal. It should stop winding when the bobbin is full or you take your foot off the control

There's a website called managemyhome.com which is sponsored by Sears. It's free to join. Go to the Home Manager column and choose Owner's Manuals from the drop down menu.

You can type in the brand name (Kenmore) and model number of your machine. Not all of them are in there but, I did find the one for the 1950280 question. It's a pdf file.

For the 38516764 question, please double check your model number. I received either no response or a Kenmore Elite dishwasher manual in response to my query.

Service manual for Kenmore 385 sewing machine


You probably can't, unless you know a repair person who'd be willing to lend you his/hers. http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Kenmore-Parts/Sewing-machine-Parts/Model-3851884180/0582/1210000?pathTaken=&prst=0&shdMod=3851884180 is the parts diagram for this machine.

However, I know of no "string" associated with a stitch selector on any machine, so I'm wondering if you might need a pro to help...

I need a manuel for 11206609 I am trouble with the bobbin catching and the thread is bunching. I also need to a manuel to see how to properly thread the machine.


I can't find a manual for that exact model, but I found a service manual and instruction manual for a 11206630. They will, hopefully, be close to your machine. Normanlly, when the model numbers are that close, the manuals are very close as well.

The links are http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/owner_manuals/133369/KENMORE-Mechanical-Sewing-1008846L?brand_name_search=Kenmore+11206+Sewing+Machine and

I hope these are helpful!
