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.

So far I've only been able to find this page. It's $8.00 to download. Considerably cheaper than a new machine!

Hope it helps.

SOURCE: How do I do a stretch stitch?

The bes way to hem a t-shirt on a household machine is to use a double needle, straight stitch. You will see two straight stitches on top and zig zag on the back. Just make sure the zig zag catched the top of the hem.

Manual/Instructions for a Kenmore 12 model 385-81512. Hello, I was given this sewing machine by a close friend without the manual and I absolutely cannot find any information on it. Please help!! Thank...


You may try contacting Sears. They have manuals for the 81510 and 81514, so one of those may be close enough to your machine. Usually, the only difference between models may be the number of decorative stitches, a couple extra options, or even the number of accessories, etc.

Help please. How to adjust presser foot. Where to chg stitch length


Please provide the make and model of your machine. There is generally no adjustment to the presser foot for selecting a straight stitch. You just need to use the specific presser foot that the owner's manual recommends for a straight stitch. The adjustment is made to the stitch length and stitch width selectors. But, since we don't know which machine you have, we can't help.

I have a Elna air electronic 68, I am not able to use different function. Like thr preprogrammed.


Your AE 68 will have three dials across the front, from L-R, stitch selector, stitch width and stitch length. To sew any stitch with a sidewise needle movement, you will need to turn the stitch selector to that stitch on the selector, then turn the stitch width to between 3 and 4 and the stitch length to a similar setting, adjusting to get the stitch formation you need. To sew with the discs, set all the dials to zero, then insert a cam into the Elnagraph on top of the machine. Then turn the selector to the disc icon, and the stitch length around to the "S" and stitch width to 4.

Don't use reverse if using the elnagraph stitches.

In order to run a straight stitch, what numbers will I need in the boxes? Thanks. Di


Stitch width needs to be set to zero and NO decorative stitches selected. Stitch length will simply control the space between one stitch to the next.

Does my kenmore sewing machine Model number 5151 do zig zag stitch?


I was able to find this photo on the internet. If your machine looks something like this

then it most likely has zig-zag. There are a lot of dials and levers on this machine. Most straight stitch machines have only one or two. One dial/lever with numbers from 0-4 or 5 would be the stitch length. The other dial/lever with numbers from 0-4 or 5 would be stitch width, which would make a zig-zag stitch.

I cannot get the green decorative stitches to work. I'm insure if my Bernina 930 is broken or I'm just unfamiliar with this machine. How do I set my machine for the embroidery stitches?


There are 2 levers on the top that need to be set. One shows the green stitch selections. That needs to be set to your stitch choice. To its right, there is another lever called the "changeover lever." It needs to be pushed all the toward the back of the machine--that switches it from straight stitch to decorative stitch.

Then on the bottom front on the right is a large knob. Both the outer ring of the knob and the inner knob perform different functions. One drops the feed dogs for darning or raises to activate the feed dogs to pull the fabric through the machine. The other part switches between the red and green stitch selections. When that knob is turned the light should show green or red to coordinate with the stitch selection lever on the top of the machine.

So to make decorative stitches, there are 2 levers that need to be moved plus the red/green activator knob. In addition, you will want to adjust the stitch width dial and the stitch length lever to widen or lengthen the stitch.

My model # is 148.12501 serial# 09200 I need to get a manual . Can i sew leather?


Sears Parts Direct has the manual here: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Kenmore-Parts/Sewing-Machine-Parts/user-manuals/manual-downloads/Model-14812501/0582/1220000?modelNumber=14812501&diagramPageId=&documentId= . The direct link to the manual is http://c.searspartsdirect.com/mmh/pd_download/lis_pdf/OWNM/L0905327.pdf . If you'd like a pre-printed version of the manual, try here: http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/instruction-manual-kenmore-148-12501.aspx .

According to the manual, you can use this machine to sew some leather items. Use only the straight stitch or simple zigzag stitch. Use a mercanized or silk thread with a size 14 needle. Make sure to use 1/2 pressure on the presser foot.

I hope this helps.

How do I satin stitch h on a Bernina 1130s limited edition?


Satin stitch is a very wide zig-zag stitch with a very short stitch length. I do mine by dropping the feed dogs and guiding the material through by hand (a lot like darning).
