How to thread kenmore sear roebuck sewing machine model 158. 1789181 got at auction no books


Sears carries a lot of manuals for their machines, although usually not free. In the meantime, there are many threading videos that demonstrate machine threading. Machines of similar models will thread similarly.

Probably best to raise the presser foot when threading so the thread will seat in the tension disk.

Before trying to sew, be sure to oil your machine with fresh, good quality sewing machine oil. Open the top, the side near the needle bar, and turn it on its back to get the underside. Place a couple drops of oil every place that metal rubs on metal. Adding hot air from a handheld hairdryer will make the oil effective quicker.

Be sure to install a brand new needle and use good quality thread--not old or bargain bin variety!

On the top left, there is probably a push button. This is the presser foot pressure adjustment. When the machine is stored, this pop-up button should be released (press down on the outer ring). Being stored with the pressure full on will eventually compress the spring that provides the pressure. Also, be sure to store the machine with the presser foot in the down position (preferably on a piece of scrap fabric). Avoid running the machine with the presser foot in direct contact with the feed dogs as this will wear the feed dogs and also create grooves in the presser foot.

Kenmore sewing machine model 158.12260 Manuel


Sears carries many manuals for Kenmore. That's probably the best place to check--unfortunately, they generally are not free.

The sewing machine could probably use a good cleaning and oiling. These old (but great!) mechanicals need 1-2 drops of fresh, good quality sewing machine oil (Tri-Flow Synthetic Oil works great!) every place that metal rubs against metal. NO oil on plastic, nylon, rubber, or belts!!! Simply open the machine's top, left side, and free arm cover (if not a free arm, you'll need to access the underneath of the machine). Gently hand rotate the handwheel toward you and apply a couple drops every place metal rubs metal. Don't forget the lever & dial mechanisms too. Probably, in your case, the bobbin winder mechanism (do NOT oil the rubber tire!). Then you can apply hot air from a handheld hairdryer into the mechanism to help free it up.

You can try a couple of YouTube videos:

(do not wind the bobbin as fast as he does as it tends to stretch the thread and also could cause the spool to fly off the machine!)

What is the value of the Kenmore Sewing Machine Model 117.581?


Depending on the condition and the cabinet style, about 50 bucks. Sorry. Really the only value is the sewing capability. No real antique or collectable value. Very good machine tho. Durable and sews like the devil when in good repair.

How long is sewing thread good for


As long as sewing thread is kept in a dry place - often a biscuit tin or one that has held confectionary is used - then it should remain in good condition for a very long time. I have cotton which is probably 30 years old, and some inherited reels which could be up to 50 years old and which are still in perfect condition.
