SOURCE: Singer Sewing machine

I found the same numbers on my Singer, but learned that the 13608M is not the serial number. I finally found it on the bottom of the machine. It typically begins with either a single or double letter. You can find the Serial No. and Year of Issue at You can also order a replacement manual. Another helpful site might be

Good luck.

SOURCE: Older kenmore sewing maching in desk.

The model number will be on the compliance plate that has the power rating, serial no. etc.

The number you need is immediately after V

So it might read something like:

1234321 / 45654 / V9876

So the model would be 9876

Janome make Kenmore, so ask your local dealer if they could find out the equivalent part for you.........perhaps arrange to take it to the workshop.

Also, many Service centres will have 2nd hand parts from deceased machines, worth a few phone calls once you have the model nailed down, although there are only so many variants to basic components like needle plate, bobbin or foot control.

Without seeing the machine that is the best advice I can offer, hope you have success.

SOURCE: I have a Kenmore Sewing Machine (old) Model E-6354

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.

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

Happy Sewing!

SOURCE: Could you tell me what the value of the Kenmore

Your model number is not E6345, that is probably the cabinet number. Kenmore's have a nonclementure plate on the machine that gives the numbers. They start with something like 117, 158, 385 etc. then they have about 4 or 5 numbers after that.

SOURCE: I have a very old wihite sewing machine. I have

you could try searching for a manual on the singer website,, in the search field type "W1" and click search and see what comes up. You may need to look at a few of the manuals, to find something that looks like yours.

The other option to identify yours is to go to google images and search on "white sewing machine" and see if you see an image similar to yours that has a code number on it.

To locate spare parts you could try again you may need to search through a few. But you could try taking a photo of your machine and emailing it to that website and see if they can help to identify the belt you need. wrapping a tape measure around the path to get a general idea of length may also assist with this.

SINGER Futura XL-400

230 V @ 50 Hz; 64 W for European version, so 0.27 Amps ; if you're in the US, just call a retailer and ask them to read the voltage and wattage or amperage off the nameplate of the machine. Watts = Volts x Amps. Since US voltage is 110, 64 Watts would mean the machine was drawing about 0.6 Amps. That's assuming it's an equivalent motor to the European version.

Hai I bought kenmore before 2yrs .At that time I was in Us .Later in 2009 feb we shifted 2 India .Now I am living in Chennai,Tamil nadu.Because of volts problem unable 2 work here.What 2 do? should I get...

So your machine is designed and manufactured for 110 volts but India operates on 220 volta at 50 cycles per second. So you will need a voltage converter as well as a plug adapter.

There are three types of Voltage converters:

Resistor-network converters
This type of converter usually supports approximately 50 -1600 Watts. They are lightweight. You can easily use this converter for high-wattage electrical appliances like hair dryers and irons. But, you can use them for short periods only and they are not ideal for digital devices.

Transformers support low watt rating, around 50 - 100 Watts. Generally, you can use them continuously. Also, they provide better electricity for low wattage appliances like battery chargers, radios, laptop computers, cameras, mp3 players and camcorders. Their drawback is the low wattage and heavy weight.

Combination converters
Combination converters are also manufactured by some companies. They are a combination of a resistor network and a transformer in the same package. You can easily switch between the two modes. If you need both types of converters, then it is better to buy this combination converter.

So you should check the model plate on your machine and see what the wattage it draws are to ensure you are using the corect type of converter.
