Question about Sewing Machines

1 Answer

I am looking for the repair/service manual for my Kenmore Ellite sewing machine model #385.19365990. Is there another model that parts and manuals would be compatible with the 385.19365990.

Step motor and front panel needs to be replaced. Is Sears the only store that sells parts for this machine?

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.

Looking for a users manual for a Sears Kenmore sewing machine model 158.120, not a parts manual.


I would first try Google and ask for service manual for your model. A close model match may do the trick as usually very little variation in same model series. Also, if you locate a Sears service center nearby, they may be able to help you find or instruct you in what you need . Good hunting

I NEED THE OWNER MANUAL FOR MODEL # 15818034.


Sears Parts Direct has a portion of the Service manual for the Kenmore 15818034 here: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Kenmore-Parts/Sewing-Machine-Parts/user-manuals/manual-downloads/Model-15818034/0582/1200000?modelNumber=15818034&diagramPageId=&documentId= . However, the owner's manual for the Kenmore 158.1803 should help you since it is from the same line of sewing machines. This manual is available from SewUsa here: http://www.sewusa.com/Sewing_Machine_Manuals/Kenmore_Manuals/1803_Instruction_Manual.htm . It's also available from Sewing Parts Online here: http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/instruction-manual-kenmore-158-18030.aspx .

I hope this helps.

Service manual for Kenmore 385 sewing machine


You probably can't, unless you know a repair person who'd be willing to lend you his/hers. http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Kenmore-Parts/Sewing-machine-Parts/Model-3851884180/0582/1210000?pathTaken=&prst=0&shdMod=3851884180 is the parts diagram for this machine.

However, I know of no "string" associated with a stitch selector on any machine, so I'm wondering if you might need a pro to help...
