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.

Bought at thrift sale with no owners manual can you help me find a website that i can order one by looking at the machine? It was a home ec machine so i have no idenification on it


If it has no identification, you are stuck. By law, there has to be a plate that tells you the voltage and amperage. The makers name will be on that. This will be close to the motor. Also so if anything is embossed into the foot pedal. If we have at least a make, we can start. Reply back as a COMMENT.

Kenmore sewing machine Model 1602: I was filling a bobbin and when I went back to sewing - the needle won't go up and down. Motor runs when I press on the footpad. It is as if the clutch is stuck as well...


Sound like you need to take it out of bobbin winder mode. Suggest looking for a way to engage the clutch. Turn the center knob on hand wheel and or move the bobbin winding post back to postion.

The center hand wheel should move about 1/3 turn towards you to look it back into place.

Kenmore sewing machine 385.1960180, problem with needle centering


That sounds like it's definitely an internal adjustment. The machine will need to be opened up and the left/right adjustment taken care of. Is this machine one that you can open the top easily, or is it the type that has the front and rear shell?

Can't tighten clutch on Kenmore zig zag sewing machine.


The clutch has fallen off the shaft. Remove the very small screw in the clutch release screw to remove the clutch release. Place the clutch(round thing with ears on it) back on the shaft with the center ears pointing towards the outside. Put the clutch release screw back on. Tighten it to make sure it works
properly. Put the small screw back in the clutch release screw and test it again. If it will not tighten or release properly, remove the clutch ,rotate it180 degrees and try it again.This should solve your problem.

You may need to remove the shank shaft w/screw driver which is where the foot attaches to and replace it . I had a problem when I had to attach a ruffler foot. A little practice w.this can save you a lot of repair bills. Most Janome dealers can repair ths too. Kenmores are made by Janome.

Problem with my machine


If you're not picking up a bobbin thread, it's either a timing issue, or the hook/needle clearance. Usually, with the hook/needle clearance the skipping stitch problem will be intermittent. If it's a timing issue, it may not pick up the bobbin at all.
