Most manuals are available on-line. Kenmore is Sears. I do not know about Sears specifically for sewing machines, but give it a try. Sears has a parts direc with manual access although not sure about sewing machnes. Or use Google search. Always in PDF. Now, when I get something new I ALWAYS find the PDF of the manual and save it in documents. I have a file called USER GUIDES just for that purpose.

SOURCE: Kenmore 385 sewing machine gets stuck in reverse

Make sure that your machine is set to sew forward. The reverse button on your machine should have a spring loaded return. If the spring is in place, and doesn't appear stretched, try a drop (just a drop) of sewing machine oil. Please use sewing machine oil. Not WD-40, or any other household oil. If the machine hasn't been serviced in a while, or used alot recently, they knob may need to be "reminded" that its supposed to go in and out. :) After applying the oil, push the knob in and pop it back out like you have been. If nothing else is wrong, it should loosen up and move freely.

Kenmore 385.1500 sews only in reverse. it is stuck in reverse sewing.


The reverse mechanism lube us going bad. It is accessed from under the machine under the free arm. Usually indicates that the machine is due for a service and oiling. It shouldn't be a problem to get it done at a good sewing machine dealer/store.

I have been looking for 3 days! Still can't find the manual for the Kenmore Sewing machine model #148.13110! Please can someone HELP terryrp@icloud.com


Unfortunately, the manual is not available for free. Sew USA, http://www.sewusa.com , has various Kenmore sewing machine manuals available. I believe the manual you need will cost $10: http://www.sewusa.com/Sewing_Machine_Manuals/Kenmore_Manuals/Kenmore_1311_Instruction_Manual.htm .

I hope this helps.

Will not sew. When attempting to, it moves in reverse without setting it in reverse.


If you have had this machine for long time the problem is most likely the reverse mechanism is stuck. On a lot of kenmore machines the reverse is a spring loaded lob that slides side to side on the lower shaft. Over time the lube that was used dries out and turns pasty. The spring can no longer push the lob and the machine stops reversing properly. It needs to be cleaned and relubed. Best bet is a sewing machine shop with a good repair person. If it is a new machine it could be something else.

I just got an old Sears Kenmore Sewing machine model 385.17781. Everything is working fine except the reverse stitch. When the reverse button is pressed, the fabric doesn't move or sometimes movin


it sounds like the feed dogs & the reverse button need to be
checked at a repair shop,
to see why they are not responding to each other.

My kenmore sewing machine will not go in reverse


Hi there,

Well when you push on the reverse button you should feel some resistance from the internal mechanism? If not, then the lever on inside is either broken or stuck. If you want to look at some of the reverse mechanism you may remove the bottom covers both for the base and the free area and locate the link lever that works the reverse. Then remove the top cover for more light so you can see better. Post comments for further help or information.....

Good Luck!!
Thanks for using FixYa!!

My sewing machine sew backward


Many Kenmores get stuck in reverse because the lubricant used has hardened up on critical stitch length/reverse mechanisms. Take it to a good sewing machine repair shop.

Machine sews only in reverse


Be sure you are in the correct stitch pattern...if you are on a buttonhole stitch or a stretch stitch it normal for the machine to sew backwards. Be sure your length is to the right of 0 and not in a strtch stitch model or buttonhole mode.

Machine will only sew in reverse


Hi
Questions.
Does the machine only feed in reverse?
Will the machine feed as normal(forward).

If the machine will only work in reverse, then it is highly likely it is stuck in reverse and needs a good service to free it off.

It is very difficult trying to diagnose the problem without looking at the machine. A reasonable sewing machine tech should be able to sort the problem in no time at all.
