Kenmore 385-16231 sewing machine. we are having problems with it breaking needles while sewing, we have never oiled this machine could this cause the needle breaking problem?


some sewing machines are self oiling some are not, instruction manual should tell,, when a sewing machine breaks needles it very possible that the machine is out of time & only a sewing machine repair shop has the tools to time the machine

when you have the foot down ready for sewing,the needle thread , pull on it slowly and make sure there is resistance through the top tension, if there isnt any then the tread will ball up underneath

Kenmore 385 model Automatic Button Hole Apparatus Jams Thread?


Practice and practice some more! Use the same fabric and interfacing as your project and a NEW needle (the correct needle) This is for the Sears Kenmore 385 automatic button hole maker. Make sure you pull the bobbin thread through the Guide Block - it is that simple. Make sure you pull your thread to the back of the machine though the presser foot slot - the correct presser foot. Account for both thread tails before starting to sew. Keep thread tails to the back of the machine 4-5", insert fabric under presser foot keeping thread tails clear. Mark button hole and sew.
