Question about Sewing Machines
Information from I.D. plate: Kenmore, 65 Watts, 110 volts, D.C. or A.C. to 75 cycles, Numbers on plate include E-6354, Pat. 1,646,962.
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 http://www.singerco.com/support/serial_numbers.html. You can also order a replacement manual. Another helpful site might be http://www.ismacs.net/Singer/singerdates.html.

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.

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.

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.

you could try searching for a manual on the singer website, http://www.singerco.com/accessories/instruction-manuals, 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 http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/white-sewing-machine-parts.aspx 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.
