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.

I need a manual for a Kenmore sewing machine model # 158.12410


Sears carries manuals for most Kenmore machines. Even if they may not have your exact model, machines operate much the same, so a manual for a similar model would be helpful.

FWIW, my first sewing machine was a model similar to yours. A real keeper--wish I would have kept mine. However, your machine, being mechanical, does require frequent cleaning and oiling. These good old machines are often forgotten, but it would be well worth your time to give it some TLC to keep it running smoothly.

How can I get a free downloadable kenmore 158 sewing machine users manual


Search the internet for:

Manufacturer + Model + the word "Manual"

FWIW, most Kenmore manuals are not available for free, but usually you can find them at Sears. (P.S.--the manual is worthwhile having in order to operate and maintain your machine properly AND decrease your frustration!)

I have a Kenmore Sewing Machine (old) Model E-6354 that was given to me but it doesn't have a manual so I don't know how to thread it or operate it.


Hi. I tried looking for your manual but am having a problem with that model number. Kenmore model numbers begin with three numbers (like 117 or 385), then a dot, then four (or more) numbers, like 117.1234. But here's a link to a group that specializes in older Kenmores like yours and they should be able to help. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/vintagekenmoressew/

I really love old sewing machines and am really glad to see them used and loved.

Happy Sewing!

My kenmore sewing machine model #12216790 timing is off and i can't find owner's manual can u help?


Owner's manuals do not usually supply repair information beyond correcting operation mistakes. That information is contained in the service manual (which I don't have access to). You are likely stuck with taking it to a service shop.
