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.

I've just bought one. Is it normal that the hand wheel is hard to turn. Does not that put stress on its motor?


hi, if you just bought this machine, my suggestion is to take it back & get another one.
the handwheel is not suppose to be hard to turn when it's brand new.. I've been sewing for over 30 years & I wouldn't keep the machine, I'd take it back & get another that works properly.

Acquired a used Kenmore 158.1792 model sewing machine and when I sew, the thread on the underside is all knotted up and in excessive amounts! How do I keep that from happening? Thank you!


Sounds like a tension problem. Do you have a manual ?? If not, they're available online for $5 to $10 as a PDF problem. You'll want to check the top tension, and the lower bobbin assembly.

[ I've got one of these machines, and used it for many years, although sadly it now has a burnt-out motor, and the motors are difficult/impossible to find ]

I have an older model Kenmore Sewing machine model # 158 12310. I was told by a local sewing machine repair business that it was not worth the money to have it cleaned and oiled. The machine works fine.I ...


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.

Hi i want to buy a sewing machine wich one is best. kenmore or brothers sewing machine


Hi,

I would prefer Kenmore, enmore makes perhaps the largest selection of mechanical machines. The very cheapest Kenmore sewing machines, like the Kenmore Mini (*est. $100) and Kenmore 15208 (*est. $120), stick with a four-step buttonhole, and have just six and eight stitches, respectively. The Kenmore 15212 (*est. $150) and Kenmore 15218 (*est. $170) both have a one-step buttonhole. The cheaper Kenmore 15212 has 12 stitches. The slightly more expensive model has 18 stitches, including a smocking stitch, overcast and elastic stretch stitch in addition to the basics. Both Kenmore sewing machines are good, basic models, say reviews. Both have just a 90-day warranty, however. Bear in mind that Kenmore sewing machines are made by different Asian companies each year, resulting in varying degrees of quality; this also explains the low prices. Some users report difficulty with tension and light fabrics.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
