Sorry but there is no way to explain how to re-assemble the tension mech on here, you need to be actually shown or have someone do it for you. It is very fiddly and needs to be exact, can I suggest you get in touch with a sewing machine tech who(at cost) will sort you out.
Sorry I cannot be of any further help.

SOURCE: how to "tune-up" mechanical Kenmore sewing machine

Sure! Jenny at http://blog.sew-classic.com/categories/Sewing%20Machine%20Repair.aspx has several very good, in-depth articles about servicing your own machine, but here are the basic steps:

1. Take out the bobbin case and bobbin holder.
2. Take the needle plate off.
3. Brush out all the old lint in the bobbin area and under the needle plate. Remove any loose bit of thread.
4. Open the head of the machine (should swing open). Clean any lint or thread that's caught in there.
5. Locate your machine's oil ports and put one drop of sewing machine oil (only use sewing machine oil) in each of them. One drop is sufficient. General rule of thumb: Put one drop of oil wherever metal moves against metal.
6. Using unwaxed dental floss, floss the tension disks.
7. Put everything back together.

If you need a manual, I found one at http://pages.sewing-machine-manuals.com/173/InventoryPage/1834489/1.html.

Hope this is useful!

SOURCE: I have an older model Kenmore Sewing machine

Do you have your owners manual? If not, go to Sears parts direct and buy one. This will tell you where to put the oil. Now you probably will want to get under the throat plate, just use a small stubby screwdriver and take off the throat plate, usually you find something that looks like felt and thread. There is not felt, so clean that little bugger out. Sometimes you can find tips on the internet for lubricating and cleaning. I think the repair person was not very knowledgeable to say that, the older machines made better than anything today. Take care of it, I still have my first sewing machine, an Old Kenmore and it is my work horse, It will sew anything that my new expensive machines cannot handle.

Assembly instructions for Singer Merritt 4525


The service manual for that machine can probably show you, and I would make sure and get the parts list as well. I just checked Sewing Parts Online, and it was not listed, but if you send an email to them (they give the address at the top of the page), they can and will purchase it for you. Usually takes about 2 weeks. However, I just saw a used one in nice shape on eBay for $72.99 and $27 shipping in the original box, so you might consider just buying another one. I also noticed that a new tension assembly is being sold for $18.95 including shipping, and if you write to them, they may include replacement instructions. Just do a search on Singer 4525 on ebay--they have all kinds of bobbins, foot pedals, and parts for it.

How do i fix sewing machine tension?


#1 rule in dis-assembly of anything is to lay out the parts in the order they came off. I do this with a piece of tape turned sticky side up on my table. (for future reference)

As for your machine.. since you did not provide a model number the best I can offer is this parts page which has some diagrams under each model. Please locate model from the several pages listed... and view the diagrams.

I have just inherited my Aunts NewHome 743 KNITLOCK Overlocker, but over the years she has misplaced the instruction manual, PLEASE can anyone help me locate a copy of one ?


I found my original instruction booklet for the New Home Knitlock Model 743 743D after being misplaced for many years. It is very old and tatty. I still have the overlocker stored somewhere as I replaced it with a new overlocker. I am hoping to sell the overlocker with instruction booklet when I get round to having the machine serviced. Please let me know if you still need a copy of the manual.

Need instructions on how to reassemble my tension adjuster on Kenmore model 385.1551. Please help.


If you go to www.searspartsdirect.com you can type in the model of you sewing machine and it will pull up a parts breakdown of your machine. Just look for the section that contains the tension unit. You might be able to reassemble the tension unit once you see all the parts in an exploded view.
