If this were me I would take the sewing machine into the Sears store nearest me and ask for some help with this or go and look real good at the same or near same machine in store and have the sales person thread it and maybe this will help but usually it goes fromthe spool and across the top to a guide then towards the front toanother guide and on to the thread lifter thingy and then down to possibly another thread guide and on to the needle oh try the store trick first it is hard to explain but by looking at the picture of the sewing machine beside your problem this could be the right way good luck

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.
