I have a euro-pro sewing machine that i got second hand, came with no manual so i dont know whot to set it to basic stich it has all these knobs and i have no idea how to run it normally


Hello

The stitch dial for the length is located all the way on the right side of the machine and is factory set at the setting "3," which is a 3mm or 1/8 inch length. Turn the dial up or down to adjust the length. For example, the setting "4" is 4mm (5/32 inch) and "2" is 2mm (5/64 inch).

The width of the serged seam is dependent on the needle or by adjusting the knob for the width. With the left needle only sewing, the width is set to 7/32 inch, and with the right needle only sewing, it is set to 9/64 inches. Additionally, by pushing in the width adjustment knob behind the front cover, the stitching can be adjusted manually from 1/8 inch to 17/64 inch wide.

Hello! I need to replace the motor on a Kenmore Series 16 machine. Model 158.162. The Sears website states the motor 5168, is not available anymore and no substitute is recommended by the manufacturer. ...


I realy dont think that you will find a new motor for a old kenmore, you may be able to find one on craigslist/ebay. How do you know it is the motor? Could just need new brushes or a new foot control. I have never had a bad motor on a old kenmore. replaced brushes and many foot cotrols.
Not that it could not happen but it would be rare.
hope this helps

Inherited old kenmore 10 sewing machine. it is clean and have no problem threading etc. but believe tension and settings are off because back of stiching is pulled and "loopy" what are the correct...


It sounds like your upper tension is too loose. A good place to start adjusting is at the number three on your tension dial, but you need to pay attention to how the stitches look rather than what the number on the dial is. I wrote a Tip on Adjusting Tension. Take a look at that and see if it helps.

Need manual: Kenmore sewing machine 158.9


Those books are long since out of print. Try contacting sewing machine stores who stock old instruction books. Many shops do this. Or try eBay.

Old sewing machine, no owners manual


I got the same machine when I was 12 years old and still use it today. Try adjusting the tension - it's the know with number 0-9. To decrease tension turn it to the left. To increase tension turn it to the right.

On the side of the bobbin case is a screw that also can be turned with a small screw driver to increase or decrease tension the same way as mentioned above.

If you send an email to me at rhonda_1961@yahoo.com I can see about getting a copy of the manual to you. It doesn't have the cover but everything else is there.

Thread goes off screw when i start sewing


Could it be that the feed dogs are down? I also have the 15358 and when I opened the bobbin area to clean it, I had this problem. Apparently, when you open the clips around the outside of the casing, it pushes the lever that adjusts the feed dogs to the right (lowering them). I didn't even realize it at first. Check your manual for adjusting this lever to raise the feed dogs. That might solve your problem.

Bobbin on 12102 kenmore


Welcome to FixYa!

Don't mess with the bobbin! They rarely need adjustment. Sloppy bottom stitches usually come from two things. Tension too loose on the tension dial or improper threading.

Dial tension should be set on about the mid range and you must, must, must, make sure that you have the machine in the proper thread patch. Have someone check it with you. Sometimes a fresh set of eyes will help you spot an area that you missed.

Thanks and if you found my solution helpful, please reward me with a FixYa rating.
