Open the needle plate and remove your bobbin casing. Then oil at the movement near the hook and again in the round spot underneath where the bobbin sits. Your owner's manual should have a diagram. If you don't have a manual, search for one online.

NEED DIAGRAM FOR THREADING A KENMORE 158.19802 SEWING MACHINE


The threading on these Kenmores is pretty consistent from model to model (good machine, by the way!). Be sure to ALWAYS raise the presser foot when threading the upper thread--insures the thread seats in the tension disk.

How to thread Sears Kenmore Sewing Machine 158 12270 158

By the way, the metal projection at the top left of the machine regulates the amount of pressure the presser foot applies to the fabric and feed dogs. Push it down to increase the pressure--important when changing types & weights of fabric. To release the pressure, push down on the ring that surrounds the center projection piece. AND, when finished sewing, it is a "great" idea to always release this pressure button before walking away from the machine. Leaving it pushed down over a long period of time will eventually compress the spring and the pressure will no longer work like it should. Also, be sure to clean and oil your older Kenmore regularly. Use only fresh, good quality sewing machine oil or liquid Tri-Flow Synthetic Lube. Open the top, side, and bobbin area. Gently rotate or rock the handwheel and apply only 1-2 drops of oil every place metal rubs against metal. You can also lube the specific lever and dial mechanisms to keep them operating freely. Do NOT oil belts or plastic gears/parts. Doing this regularly, ie every 40-60 hours of sewing time, will keep your machine running smoothly and quietly and preserve the motor from over stress and possible burn-out.

Machine binds up


Seems you need to clean and lube your machine. remove the top and bottom cover cover open the front cover brush out all lint check bobbin for thread lock and lint. lube all moving metal parts with "non petroleum " light oil. Do not lube plastic parts unless there is apparent fiction. " DO NOT USE PETROLEUM BASED LUBRICANT " as it will dissolve or soften plastic parts!

How do I thread a mylock 434d


Do you not have your instruction book? It will have the instructions in it. Often there is also a diagram on the front cover flap of the machine. How far away from any sewing machine dealer are you? They should be able to show you how to thread at no cost.Let me kNow how you go.

How to oil my shark sewing machine model 801B


Sorry but you'll not find that information. Home sewing machine manufacturers no longer allow the home users to do their own machine maintenance. And finding any info on Shark machines is next to impossible.

My advice is to take it into to a qualified sewing machine repair guy and ask him to show you how to lube your machine. (you might have to pay extra for this info)

Good luck.

The needle in my Viking 6440 is locked in on the left side and the machine will only sew in reverse. The reverse button cannot be moved in or out.


I'm trying to find a machine similar to yours and have done much research re: the older mech viking sewing machines 6000 series. They are GREAT machines, suffering only from problems such as yours caused by the old "lube/grease" they used when it was made @ factory. In their efforts of making a "never needs oil" mech sewing machine, the grease tends to harden & freeze up the gears & cams inside the machine. You need to have it serviced @ authorized Viking shop as you have to completely disassemble the machines & gears, clean, re-lube, & re calibrate the gears... I understand this s/b ~ $175. Money well spent considering if taken care of your beauty could be sewing for another 60 yrs!
Hope this helps!

How to oil my sewing machine


Kenmore machines may have parts and manuals available on searspartsdirect.com -- have the correct model number usually a 3 digit a dot and the rest of the numbers (i.e., 158.xxxx or 385.xxxx1). You will see a list, and if you click on parts or attachments list and scroll down into the parts list, there should be a manual listed as either available or not.

As to the new machines, Euro-Pro or any other, if really cheap, then my personal feeling is that they are planned to not last for a long time -- which may account for the lack of oiling instructions in their manuals. The other possible reason 'may' be that like some Viking Husqvarna machines, the metal parts could be infused with oil and the heat from running them produces the oil needed as it runs. Somehow I doubt that could be the answer in an inexpensive machine. If a lot of the parts inside are plastic, then no oil is needed, and they will run until the plastic breaks, necessitating a trip to the repair shop.

Only use sewing machine oil which can be bought at any JoAnn's, Walmart, sew and vac, or sewing machine dealer. Never use household oil or the yellow/blue can of spray that is a water displacement solution which ultimately will gum up the works. You could use Tri-Flow Superior Lubricant.

Basic oiling procedure is to oil wherever metal parts meet (possible friction points) or slide past each other -- a drop or two usually. No grease needed on plastic gears. If you have an old machine with metal gears, then use sewing machine lube (grease) or Tri-Flow lube (can get it at a bicycle shop if no where else).
