There are 2 hex head bolts ( 7/16 ) in the back, under the motor. You just have to loosen the screws and lift up on the motor, this will loosen the belt.

My vintage kenmore hand wheel was frozen now it turns manually but not when I use the foot pedal, then it won't turn


Either you will replace the belt or have to adjust the motor/belt tension.
1. The motor can be loosened by a couple of bolts. This allows the motor to be moved to adjust the tension of the belt.
2. The tension can be adjusted properly by turning the motor on with the foot pedal; low speed.
3. While the motor is running move the motor in a fashion that will loosen or tighten the belt. The correct location will allow the motor to run at it's highest speed.
4. Re-tighten the bolts and retest the machine.

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.

How to replace kenmore model 158 13400 belt


Good morning
If you have got the belt, I would remove the old one and put the new one on as the old one disappears. I used to change belts that way when I had a machine.

I can't loosen the wheel to wind a new bobbin on model 158-1340280


it may be seized up, depending on how old your machine is. I had the same problem with mine & used a hair dryer to blow hot air on it until I was able to loosen the wheel.

easy fix... same thing happened to me. take the back part off by the on and off switch and you'll see the loose belt. loosen the single screw next to the smallest pully and adjust tension.

Broken belt


If you are having problems finding the correct belt, sometimes the stretch belts work great for these situations. You can find many of them on ebay.
