E99670 short shank, or snap on presser feet?


Make sure--Does the machine take a short shank presser foot? If so, you can replace it with a short shank zig-zag presser foot. You can probably go to a regular sewing machine repair shop and find a replacement presser foot.

**NOTE--the links below are examples of what is available. I cannot vouch for these vendors as I've never purchased from them. Do your own due diligence before purchasing!!!

Here's an open toe presser foot:

or a regular zig-zag foot:

OR you can buy a short shank adapter and a kit of snap-on presser feet that will give you a big variety of different kinds of presser feet, probably including a zipper foot, hemmer foot, 1/4" quilting foot, darning foot, teflon foot, etc....(probably more than she will ever use!) The snap-on kits are available online, try eBay or some of the other sites. They most likely are not Singer brand, but are most likely generic. However, if your granddaughter is just learning, this may be the broadest variety of choices.

These are examples of snap-on presser feet available.

I have a Sears Kenmore sewing machine I want to get a 1/4 in presser foot for it, is there one and where would I get it/


You first need to determine which shank the presser foot uses on your machine. You can compare your shank (current presser foot) with these photos to see which one your machine uses.

NOTE: If you purchase a snap-on presser foot, you will also have to buy a "shank adapter" that will attach the presser foot to the needlebar. Here are some pictures of snap-on adapters:

However, you will still need to make sure to buy the correct adapter for your machine. The GREAT thing about buying a snap-on adapter is you can add a lot of presser feet to your sewing machine accessories because you can purchase additional snap-on presser feet or even a complete set of snap-on feet that will all work with your adapter and your machine!!!

You will just snap one foot off and snap another on!!! Great idea!!!

OR--you can take your current presser foot along with the make & model of your machine and check with the local sewing repair shops to see if they have what you need.

FYI, once you know what shank your machine has, you can probably also find other specialty feet for your machine, ie walking foot, free-motion foot, etc.

How can I find accessories for an old machine?


Sewing shops are loaded with this stuff. You can order online too. You'll need the make & model number. Do a little research, I think Kenmores are simply repackaged Singers.

Model 15243/15343. The thread take up lever will not move up and down


If the thread takeup lever will not move I take it that the machine itself will not move at all which usually means thread stuck in the bobbin case area

Kenmore 148 bobbin thread ends up a snarl under the cloth. Seems like thread is not coming off bobbin smoothly or measured, ending up with tangle and stopping.


Usually it is your top threading or your needle needs to be changed. Rethread paying close attention that the thread is in the tension discs right. Try with presser foot up, pull thread, it should pull smoothly, now put the presser foot down, it should barely move. This usually seats the thread in the tension discs.

You may not be using the correct presser foot for your machine.

You may be using a low shank when your machine needs a high shank.
