    I found this Sewing Machine in the dumper with everything seem to be working fine. But couple people that I know. Say that I'm missing the bobbin and the bobbin case too. Also I don't know one thing about sewing machine. I think I'm better having someone to look at it. How much does it normal cost for someone to look and fix a sewing 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

I found a website for you that might help. They have a lot of kenmore manuals including one similiar to your model#148.12051. The manual opened as model 1205 so maybe searching for your model as the 1201 might help too. hope this helps! =)

Try Sears. A lot of brands were similar back in those days (because they copied or re-badged other brands), so finding a threading diagram for an old Singer would probably be helpful.

How to thread kenmore sear roebuck sewing machine model 158. 1789181 got at auction no books


Sears carries a lot of manuals for their machines, although usually not free. In the meantime, there are many threading videos that demonstrate machine threading. Machines of similar models will thread similarly.

Probably best to raise the presser foot when threading so the thread will seat in the tension disk.

Before trying to sew, be sure to oil your machine with fresh, good quality sewing machine oil. Open the top, the side near the needle bar, and turn it on its back to get the underside. Place a couple drops of oil every place that metal rubs on metal. Adding hot air from a handheld hairdryer will make the oil effective quicker.

Be sure to install a brand new needle and use good quality thread--not old or bargain bin variety!

On the top left, there is probably a push button. This is the presser foot pressure adjustment. When the machine is stored, this pop-up button should be released (press down on the outer ring). Being stored with the pressure full on will eventually compress the spring that provides the pressure. Also, be sure to store the machine with the presser foot in the down position (preferably on a piece of scrap fabric). Avoid running the machine with the presser foot in direct contact with the feed dogs as this will wear the feed dogs and also create grooves in the presser foot.

I have been looking for 3 days! Still can't find the manual for the Kenmore Sewing machine model #148.13110! Please can someone HELP terryrp@icloud.com


Unfortunately, the manual is not available for free. Sew USA, http://www.sewusa.com , has various Kenmore sewing machine manuals available. I believe the manual you need will cost $10: http://www.sewusa.com/Sewing_Machine_Manuals/Kenmore_Manuals/Kenmore_1311_Instruction_Manual.htm .

I hope this helps.

How old is my sears Kenmore sensor sew 70 model# 3851950180? Iwould like to know if it can be repaired


Almost any machine CAN be repaired, but it may not be worth the money to get it repaired and with older machines finding parts can be a real problem.

If you call Sears and tell them the model and serial number they should be able to tell you the age of the machine, and whether or not they are still willing to repair a machine like it. They may not have parts though.. sometimes independent repair shops are a better bet. Ebay is often a good source for old machine parts too.

I am looking for a Sewing Machine Manuel for a Sears Roebuck


Do you have a model number? That looks like a serial number.

Pre 1955 machines were made by companies like National Sewing Machine company. After that they were made in Japan. So maybe to help us out... you can post a picture of your machine?
