I have an old Kenmore and here are the directions from my manual: 1. Draw thread from spool through bobbin winder tension discs. 2. Wind thread around an empty bobbin several times. 3. Place bobbin onto bobbin winder shaft with thread coming from rear of bobbin. Push bobbin winder latch against bobbin until it clicks. 4. Release clutch by turning clutch knob toward you. Start machine.

SOURCE: thread a kenmore 158 13410????

Not sure if I am too late, but it's pretty basic. I have the same machine...

You have the thread on the spool with the thread on the left side (unrolling off the spool counterclockwise) and put it around the round thing on the front middle (looks like a snap sort of) and through the eye almost right in front of it (the loop) and hold the thread lightly then wrap the thread around the tensioner (the thing with the dial) to the left (counterclockwise) until the springs "pops" it into place. Then run the thread through the little hook thing (by entering from the left) then up to the eye (hole) that is in the little arms that raises and lowers (you might need to spin the wheel to get the arm in the right position) then you run the thread back through the hook thing (entering from the left) around the little half circle thing (by entering from the left) and finally in the hole in the needle...

hope it made sense, I tried to use laymen terms...

good luck!

There's a website called managemyhome.com which is sponsored by Sears. It's free to join. Go to the Home Manager column and choose Owner's Manuals from the drop down menu.

You can type in the brand name (Kenmore) and model number of your machine. Not all of them are in there but, I did find the one for the 1950280 question. It's a pdf file.

For the 38516764 question, please double check your model number. I received either no response or a Kenmore Elite dishwasher manual in response to my query.

SOURCE: Where to oil a Kenmore 158-17600

Remove the top and bottom covers. Turn the wheel and put a drop of oil anyplace that moves and rubs.Also at the ends of each shaft. Open the side cover and oil the needle bar and all the parts inside that move and rub.Put a drop of oil on the hook.Do not put a good piece of fabric in the machine right after you've oiled it. Sew it off on some scraps that you can throw away.

I have a Kenmore Sewing Machine (old) Model E-6354 that was given to me but it doesn't have a manual so I don't know how to thread it or operate it.


Hi. I tried looking for your manual but am having a problem with that model number. Kenmore model numbers begin with three numbers (like 117 or 385), then a dot, then four (or more) numbers, like 117.1234. But here's a link to a group that specializes in older Kenmores like yours and they should be able to help. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/vintagekenmoressew/

I really love old sewing machines and am really glad to see them used and loved.

Happy Sewing!

I have a Kenmore sewing machine Model 158.17030. It's an older model and I don't have the user manual. I can't figure out how to set it on the hemming stitch. No matter what I do, it just sews a straight...


Hi. First, I'd recommend you get a replacement manual. They are really useful. Check out http://sewingpartsonline.com/sewing-machine-instruction-manuals.aspx.

I assume you have different stitches on the machine and a diagram of some sort showing what each stitch looks like. Find one that looks like:

---^---^---^--- (maybe on its side). That's the blindstitch. Some machines require you use a blindstitch foot with the stitch, but some don't. Without the user's manual, it's hard to say what your machine requires.

Good luck and let me know what happens.

Sewing machine foot


Hi Debbie,

Your Ergo was made by Janome - so you have lots of options for accessories.

The foot model you list is the foot control for the machine - is this what you are looking for?

Our first recommendation is to support your local stores whenever possible - and your local Janome dealer may have the foot control and lots of other accessories for your machine in stock.

If you can't find what you need locally, you can try Sewing Machines Plus in San Marcos, CA appears to. I did find another reference to it on yet another website, but it states they are out of stock and taking orders for future stock.

While we don't have the foot control for your machine, we do have a bunch of Janome presser feet & embroidery cards/design on our site that may work for you as well.

Best of luck in finding your foot control.
