Lost manual, power cord, presser foot lever for Kenmore sewing m.

I received a Kenmore sewing machine (Model 385.1249180) many years ago as a gift and have lost the power cord, presser foot lever, and manual. Obviously I am not a sewer and never used the machine, but now my daughter is sewing so I want to purchase parts. Is there somewhere online I can purchase them?

I lost my box of pressure foots and the book for my machine, i need info on spaciffic pressure foot replacements,


Search the internet for:

Manufacturer + Model + the word "Manual" or "presser foot"

There are online sewing machine suppliers who will most likely have replacement presser feet for your 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.

How do I replace the power cord on the presser foot to a pfaff sewing machine model 2144?


I highly recommend taking it to a sewing machine repairer. That way you get it repaired safely and have a warranty on the work

Does the presser foot lift up when you use the lever? Can you open the face cover plate and see the presser foot lever to see if it is connected and functional or has it become disconnected?

I was recently given a Euro-ProShark Automatic model 417 to use w/my quilting group at church. It is missing the manual, power cord and presser foot. Can you help me find out? Thanks.


Check out the foot controls at http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/search.aspx?find=Euro+Pro+foot+control. They have a diagram at the top of each of the selections showing what the connection looks like. I looked at each of the Euro Pro Models that the foots are compatible with, but didn't find the 417. I found models close to it. But if you find a connection type that is the same, it should work. Make sure of the return policy before you order, just in case.

As far as the presser foot goes, a universal type presser foot fits nearly any machine I've ever dealt with and heard of in 30+ years of sewing. I still use my grandmother's universals from 60+ years ago on a machine that's computerized and only 3 years old, if that gives you an idea! Check out your local Joann's or Hancock Fabrics or local sewing store. Even ordering online for a universal presser foot will do you just fine.You can look on the same web site as for the foot control at http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/search.aspx?find=Universal+presser+foot for one.

Presser foot lever does not lift presser foot


If you can remove the cover on the left side you will see the presser foot bar. On the bar there will be a screw that may be loose. Turn the handwheel until the needle is all the way down and lift the foot manually until just before it makes contact with the needle clamp and tighten the screw on the presser foot bar.
That should do it.

I am trying to use automatic button hole and it keeps beeping and showin bl?


Ok, so all the credit goes to this website http://www.burdastyle.com/howtos/show/95
Photo 7 shows a buttonhole lever that comes down and contacts the auto buttonhole presser foot. The machine manual is a little vague about this in the section about buttonholes. At the point when it shows the lever being pulled down, the manual should reference the part number in the list of part names in section 1, and it would have been easier for me not to have mistaken that lever with the stop on the side of the presser foot that the lever sits against . . . . that also kinda looks like a lever! Probably a no-brainer for someone who does this all the time, but for a noobie like me . . . .I'm glad I found the website above. So . . . .the machine is now making perfect buttonholes 30 seconds after finding the butonhole lever! Groovy!

The foot on my Kenmore sewing machine model 15516 was removed and I cant get it back on.


If it is a snap on foot, just line up the bar with the "hook" on the shank and drop the presser foot lever into the down position, it should snap back into place.

Shark Euro Pro X model 384


Go to the Euro-Pro website and call them. They will eventually send you out what you need. I received this machine as a gift and it came without a foot pedal, power cord or manual. I have since received the power cord and foot pedal (after a year!), but now can't pull the manual up on their website. It's so frustrating. I'm thinking of selling this darn machine as soon as I have everything. I have owned it for a year and a half and haven't even used it!!
