You put the hook (the half moon thing with a sharp point on it) in the machine by placing it opposite the little curved bar. Make sure it is seated properly on the ridge. The you take the race, the circular part with a small plate on the top and place that over the hook(the plate side will be facing up). It will only fit a certain way, it could have a slot that a notch fits into (that is usually how it goes). Then slide the arms over it and they will snap into place. Once done, turn the handwheel and make sure everything moves smoothly. If not, you'll need to start over as something isn't seated correctly. Then you can install the bobbin case as usual.

Looking for a users manual for a Sears Kenmore sewing machine model 158.120, not a parts manual.


I would first try Google and ask for service manual for your model. A close model match may do the trick as usually very little variation in same model series. Also, if you locate a Sears service center nearby, they may be able to help you find or instruct you in what you need . Good hunting

How old is my sears Kenmore sensor sew 70 model# 3851950180? Iwould like to know if it can be repaired


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 have an older model Kenmore Sewing machine model # 158 12310. I was told by a local sewing machine repair business that it was not worth the money to have it cleaned and oiled. The machine works fine.I ...


Do you have your owners manual? If not, go to Sears parts direct and buy one. This will tell you where to put the oil. Now you probably will want to get under the throat plate, just use a small stubby screwdriver and take off the throat plate, usually you find something that looks like felt and thread. There is not felt, so clean that little bugger out. Sometimes you can find tips on the internet for lubricating and cleaning. I think the repair person was not very knowledgeable to say that, the older machines made better than anything today. Take care of it, I still have my first sewing machine, an Old Kenmore and it is my work horse, It will sew anything that my new expensive machines cannot handle.

Kenmore model 158 15510 will not catch the material to advance it while sewing. The catch plate does not go up high enough.

Can these needles be used with my sewing machine?


Don't know if this is helpful...but I have a very old Kenmore and 2 Brothers. I used the same needles with all 3 machines. No problems.
