Question about Kenmore 15516 Mechanical Sewing Machine

1 Answer

Broken belt I, too, have a very old Kenmore sewing machine. I ordered a belt online March 2007, saved the paperwork, but can't seem to get in online to order another one. It was order Number 24823 on March 23, 2007. It was a motor belt for a Model 96, belt #60902 for $12.95. sewingmachine221sale@pop.bizland.com was what they told me to save and use, but the page won't come up. I just want to buy a new belt for my maching. Thanks for your help. Jo Goedert

If you are having problems finding the correct belt, sometimes the stretch belts work great for these situations. You can find many of them on ebay.

Kenmore 19233 sewing machine. Then handwheel is broken, spins freely. Machine works perfectly otherwise. How do I remove the handwheel and replace it.


If the drive belt is not off or broken, then check hand-wheel setting. On some models the hand wheel can be pushed in (to engage) and pulled out (to disengage) for using bobbin winder. If it is disengaged the hand-wheel will spin freely. On older models there is a smaller wheel that has to be hand tightened in order to engage rest of machine. Hope this helps.

How do I refill the thread bobbin on a Kenmore sewing maching,,model 148-19371


You can try a couple of YouTube videos:

(do not wind the bobbin as fast as he does as it tends to stretch the thread and also could cause the spool to fly off the machine!)

How can I find accessories for an old machine?


Sewing shops are loaded with this stuff. You can order online too. You'll need the make & model number. Do a little research, I think Kenmores are simply repackaged Singers.

Bobbin shaft does not turn but sounds like it is. What do I do?


Sounds like a broken belt. They are located on the bottom side of the machine, and all can be ordered online, or you may want to take it to a shop

Bobbin winder broken


Hm, when was the last time the machine had a thorough clean and oil? These old machines tend to run forever, BUT they do need periodic TLC.

Wheel on right side that controls the needle up and down is very tight...

FWIW, there is a stand-alone bobbin winder called "Sidewinder" avlb at JoAnn's or Amazon for ~$30. It's a handy little gadget that lets you wind multiple bobbins without unthreading the machine--also saves wear n tear on your machine.

Old kenmore sewing machine model # 1237 ( not found in search) - prob. purch.'d in 198o's


Check the handwheel. If it is pulled out, the clutch is not engaged. Try pushing it in! (It would be really nice if the solution is this easy!)
