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.

Threading mom old kenmore sewing machine

Kenmore 158 17550 Sewing Machine Tutorial

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.

What size needle is used on janome model 672


Janome makes sewing machine needles. However, many machine brands recommend using their own brand needles (ie Singer recommends only their needles and I have encountered issues using Singer needles with non-Singer machines). Sometimes, machine-brand needles are higher priced. More expensive does not guarantee better quality. However, unbelievably inexpensive off-brand needles may not be a good thing.

PRODUCT REVIEW JANOME SEWING MACHINE NEEDLES

Janome needles will most likely work fine on your machine, however, most modern sewing machines accept the standard 705/130 needle. Beware, though, that some brands of 705/130 needles have slight variations that may cause problems. If in doubt, consult your Janome dealer or an experienced Janome user. It may come down to experimentation on your own. Don't be surprised that a brand recommended may work better than others. Because a sewist is a staunch advocate of a particular brand, does not mean it will work best for your machine. It's just the nature of the beast because every machine and every needle has slight variations. Purchasing a single package of brand needles and trying them first would be a good idea. If the needle doesn't seem to work, you can try another brand until you find one you like. When experimenting with a different needle, start out sewing slowly (or hand rotating the wheel) in case there is a problem with the needle, you may avoid broken needles.

I've found several brands that work fine on my machines (not Janome machines) and seem to work for most sewists, ie Schmetz, Organ, Klasse, even Kenmore. It's probably best to avoid lesser known brands or bargain bin needles. Fabric stores, like JoAnn's carry Schmetz and if you use coupons, you can frequently buy them at a great price, sometimes 50%.

How to Choose Sewing Needles Looking at Types Sizes Lifespan

Along with choosing the needle for your machine, you need to consider the thread and fabric you will be using. Choosing the correct needle is very important for your sewing success, ie use a ball point needle for knits, a leather needle for heavy fabrics/thread, a sharp/microtex for fine wovens, embroidery for applique & embroidery, top stitch for larger threads & heavier fabric, etc.

All About Needles

And, above all, install a brand new needle frequently, ie whenever beginning a new project. A bent/dull/damaged needle will cause all kinds of frustration, including failing to pick up the bobbin thread, skipped stitches, or even hitting/damaging the presser foot, needle plate, or hook. A flying piece of needle is not a pleasant experience--and dangerous (wear eye protection)!

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.

My mom had an XR-40 , when she died I took it because she rarely used it and it looks brand new but I cannot find the manual for it and I cannot figure out how to thread a bobbin. is there a place I can...


hi.

this link should take you direct to the pdf owners manual for the brother xr40.
it is within the brother-usa.com website under product manuals.
it is not the best quality pdf i have seen, the manual has been scanned in by the looks of it, but it is quite readable.
if it is not the right manual (it does say xr40) then go to brother-usa.com and find the correct link.

The machine needle broke and I'm not sure what needle I need for my Brother LS-2220 sewing machine


Wow, talk about rambling solutions to a simple question ...
Brooklyn35, go to a place that sells sewing machine needles and buy some, period, end of story. All home sewing machines for the last 50 years (not sergers) take the same needles, the best quality needles are Schmetz brand, they are stronger, sew better, and last longer than cheap ones.

Hi i want to buy a sewing machine wich one is best. kenmore or brothers sewing machine


Hi,

I would prefer Kenmore, enmore makes perhaps the largest selection of mechanical machines. The very cheapest Kenmore sewing machines, like the Kenmore Mini (*est. $100) and Kenmore 15208 (*est. $120), stick with a four-step buttonhole, and have just six and eight stitches, respectively. The Kenmore 15212 (*est. $150) and Kenmore 15218 (*est. $170) both have a one-step buttonhole. The cheaper Kenmore 15212 has 12 stitches. The slightly more expensive model has 18 stitches, including a smocking stitch, overcast and elastic stretch stitch in addition to the basics. Both Kenmore sewing machines are good, basic models, say reviews. Both have just a 90-day warranty, however. Bear in mind that Kenmore sewing machines are made by different Asian companies each year, resulting in varying degrees of quality; this also explains the low prices. Some users report difficulty with tension and light fabrics.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
