This is a computerized model. Depends what's wrong with it whether it is worth fixing. If it needs a board, it may not be worthwhile fixing. Kenmore machines were usually made by another sewing machine company, so parts may still be available. Talk to Sears or take it to a repair shop.

Almost any machine CAN be repaired, but it may not be worth the money to get it repaired and with older machines finding parts can be a real problem.

If you call Sears and tell them the model and serial number they should be able to tell you the age of the machine, and whether or not they are still willing to repair a machine like it. They may not have parts though.. sometimes independent repair shops are a better bet. Ebay is often a good source for old machine parts too.

I got the Sliding Buttonhole Foot for my Kenmore Sensor 70 Model 385-19950180 but the manual has little information on how to use it. Is there a video where I can learn?


There are a lot of videos on YouTube. Just search for something like: sewing machine buttonhole

Most sliding buttonhole accessories work the same from machine to machine.

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.

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.

I don't know about a repair manual but I did see on Sears parts direct a link to download your manual for free after I put your model #in. It went into, www.managemylife.com and I able to download it with adobe.
Parts you can usually get from sites, like www.sew4less.com, www.sewingparts.com etc. And of course, Sears parts direct. Good luck

I have a Kenmore Sewing Machine (old) Model E-6354 that was given to me but it doesn't have a manual so I don't know how to thread it or operate it.


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.

Happy Sewing!
