I have a Kenmore 158-3500 sewing machine and cannot get the side plate off near the hand wheel I have removed the clutch wheel but the hand wheel and belt seem to keep the plate from coming off.


Hi,
The machine has two belts, one from the motor to a transfer pulley and the second from that pulley to the handwheel. You have to loosen the motor mount (one large screw/bolt) to release tension on the transfer pulley which in turn releases tension on the handweel belt. You will have to take the belts off the transfer pulley to slide the handwheel off (assuming you have already removed knob in the center of the handwheel)
Don't forget to lubricate the shaft of the transfer pulley while you have the end cover off. If this runs dry you will have a problem.
Good luck
Bob

Kenmore sewing machine model 158-17031- motor runs well but think the clutch or something is stuck


Has it been oiled lately? If not, it could be seized. Old oil turns to glue and then varnish unless it is regularly maintained. Make sure to use only fresh, good quality sewing machine oil or liquid Tri Flow Synthetic Lube. Slowly rock the hand wheel and apply a couple drops every place where metal rubs against metal--no oil on belts, rubber, synthetic parts! If it is still resistant, direct hot air from a handheld hairdryer into the internal mechanism and repeat the process until things are loosened and moving smoothly again.

A sewing machine should be cleaned and lubed every 40 hrs of working time or every 6 months if not in use.

Motor & belt turn, but the needle stops when it encounters normal cloth. Drive belt is NOT broken & the machine has hardly been used. Sews OK when turning the wheel by hand.


the drive belt is normally a cog type belt inside the head of the machine
I would be looking in that area and at the belt or at the tension of that belt
may be a service technician would be able to correctly adjust and fix the problem

Needle is not moving


Of course I have to guess here--not seeing the machine, but it appears that your motor is working fine. That would leave two possibilities, I think. The first is a defective foot pedal. The second is, when you push the bobbin winder, it engages a clutch that diverts power from the needle shaft to the winder. It is possible that the clutch is stuck. To find out, disengage the bobbin winder and press the foot pedal, and see if the bobbin winder spindle is still spinning.

The clutch on my kenmore 1310 won't disengage when i go to wind the bobbin. i turn the clutch knob toward me, and the clutch is still engaged.the machine needle continues to operate while i wind the bobbin


May be one of two problems.
1st you should be able to turn the nob about 90-120 degrees. Not a full turn.
If this is not the case follow these steps.

Turn the small screw on the nob about 2 full turns
Carefully turn the nob all the way off.
Inside there is a round part with 3 small prongs on it.
spin that 180 degree and put everything back together.

2nd your clutch is gummed up
You will need to remove the handwheel and motor belt for this.
Remove the nob, small 3 prong part, and motor belt.
Pull the handwheel off (it may be stuck on and hard to get off).
Clean inside the handwheel and the machine main shaft.
Lubricate the Main shaft and put handwheel back on.
When you put the small 3 prong part back on it needs to have the prongs sticking away from the machine.

Hope this fixes your machine

We have a Juki MO 804 Overstitch/serger machine, while it is turned on but not sewing the motor makes a squealing noise like a slipping belt. Is that what it is or should I worry about something else


if its on and not running then its most likely a motor bearing or an incorrectly adjusted clutch ( large bolt on the right side of the motor ,from front of machine) loosen lock nut ( 17, or 19 mm) and adjust bolt until the noise goes away.

I have everything in place to sew, the needle is in the fabric, I push the pedal, and it won't go and makes a horrible noise, the wheel turns about 1/2 a turn and then just stops.


see if it will work without the needle .. make sure the needle is not bent .. make sure you dont have a single (non zigzag) foot on the machine while its in zig zag mode .. the needle will hit the foot in this case .. if the machine will run without a needle and fails even with a straight needle then there could be a timing issue .. the top part of the sewing machine is syncronized with the bottom part via a shaft and some gears .. these are adjustable by a tech person .. everything has to happen at the right time if that relationship is changed thru slipage or wear then the machine may jam up .. also if some cloth, thread or lint is cought in the bottom unit it can cause the trouble .. will it turn by hand ?? if it turns by hand freely but wont turn with the motor ... and it makes a lot of noise .. you may have a loose belt from the motor .. if its a cog belt then it will make a shuddering noise as the drive gear slips over the cogs .. the belt tension is adjustable .. it just wants to be snug not tight, not loose ..

Manual wheel on side of machine won't move needle


hi there;
well try to rotate hand wheel center holder clockwise while hold grift the handwheel not to move to engage the clutch,because ther is clutch that holding the movement of the needle and the bobbins case.if still nothing change at all,open a cover motor assembly chech the belt tension if still engage on pulley,maybe slip pulley is occuring when motor run,if belt is slip to pulley replace belt,but if ok upon clutch adjustment ignore replacement.

Kenmore model 158-12392


It is a clutch issue.

If you can turn the handwheel manually and the motor belt is running OK but the needle will not move, you will need to check the clutch mechanism for the bobbin winder.


There are three ways for the clutch to engage, and as I do not know your machine, I offer all three for you to see which applies to yours.

Flick winder to the left to engage needle arm motion.......it may activate automatically when the winder is set to wind a new bobbin and de-activate the needle arm

or

there may be a small wheel inside the larger handwheel....tighten the inner wheel to engage needle arm...

or

the handwheel may have a push/pull action ....push in to activate the clutch, pull out for bobbin winding.

If there is any more you need to ask or update your info to refine the question, just post back here, or drop a line through the "Contact Us" page at www.bargainbox.com.au

Needle won't move


Make sure the clutch motor is powering up. make sure voltage toggle switch is on 110v and not 220v. Also rotation set correctly. Independently, make sure the motor runs. With your hands and motor belt disengaged, attempt to turn the handwheel toward you. If it is moving, then make sure motor is running. It handwheel does not turn it could be the machine. Make sure the stitch length dial is set at 2 or 3 and not 0 or 5. That could be that problem as well.
