SOURCE: kenmore sewing machine mod 1703 motor runs but

By 'The wheel the belt is on' you mean the motor pully? If that is so obviously some oil has some how made way on the pully and the belt. Try to remove the belt and clean both wheels and the belt free of oil. This shd slove the problem.

If it doest then please send a photo of the arrangement showing pully and belt. U didnt mention if the machine is old or new. Did u oil it recently before trouble developed?

SOURCE: kenmore sewing machine won't sew vinyl

There is several things you should use when stitching vinyl, treat it the same as leather. The main issue usually is getting the feed dogs to grip and move it through; this is why there are commercial grade machines specifically for leather hides and fur etc, it is tricky to stitch.

To stitch on a domestic machine, you need a leather needle with a spear tip to cut the leather so it doesn't split. Also, if you can get one, use a roller foot to roll over the fabric, or a teflon foot if you can't find a roller one. Also, use paper clips rather than pins to hold raw edges together (remove as they approach the foot and needle). You may also need to bash seams open after stitching (rubber mallet) and glue down the raw edges, this is how leather hides are stitched professionally. If you have to join more than 2 layers ie crossing seams, you'll probably need a Jeans-a-ma-jig device to help with feeding through the thickness and still getting feed. Like this http://www.punchwithjudy.com.au/shop/jean-a-ma-jig.html

You don't say what it is actually doing, ie stitches not catching, or the feed dogs not moving it through?

But if it is an entry level machine, it may not have sufficient engine power to pierce the vinyl, especially if the textile is thick. Also, don't try to use a heavier thread than normal weight, if you want the stitching to look heavier, then just run two reels of thread through all the thread guides, tension and the needle eye together. Something like buttonhole twist will be too heavy for the bobbin tension and top tension to handle.

Hope that this helps you with your project.

Kenmore sewing machine keeps squeaking how to stop it?


Hello Shirlene, If your Kenmore machine has two drive belts, a belt from the motor to an idler pulley and a belt from the idler pulley to the main shaft. I have found that the idler pulley needs some Teflon grease on the idler pulley shaft. On my machine, the squeak would go away for a while if I oiled this idler pulley shaft. But it was short lived. Only grease on the idler pulley shaft would silence the squeak.

Kenmore 385 model Automatic Button Hole Apparatus Jams Thread?


Practice and practice some more! Use the same fabric and interfacing as your project and a NEW needle (the correct needle) This is for the Sears Kenmore 385 automatic button hole maker. Make sure you pull the bobbin thread through the Guide Block - it is that simple. Make sure you pull your thread to the back of the machine though the presser foot slot - the correct presser foot. Account for both thread tails before starting to sew. Keep thread tails to the back of the machine 4-5", insert fabric under presser foot keeping thread tails clear. Mark button hole and sew.

Broken belt


If you are having problems finding the correct belt, sometimes the stretch belts work great for these situations. You can find many of them on ebay.
