How to lower the feed dogs for free motion sewing on model # 16782


There are most likely some numbers missing from the model number you provided. Usually, there is a 3-digit beginning number, ie 115, 385, 401...

I am unable to find model information based on your number, but you can most likely get a user's manual through Sears or try searching the internet (Make Model manual), ie:

Kenmore Sewing Machine Manuals Instruction and Repair Manuals

Sewing machines generally have two ways to disable feed dogs. One way is a lever or knob on the machine itself that physically "drops" the feed dogs so they are below the needleplate. The feed dogs will continue to operate but since they are below the sewing surface, they will not have an effect on the fabric movement. The other way is an accessory that attaches to the needleplate which covers the feed dogs and creates a flat sewing surface.

Another item that is important for free motion quilting is a darning foot or free motion foot. These presser feet are physically shorter in height than a standard presser foot. This means the darning foot, when lowered, does not apply "pressure" to the fabric when it is lowered. It, instead, provides leeway between the presser foot and the fabric so there is room to manually maneuver the fabric while stitching.

You'll just need to CONFIRM that the presser foot shank is correct for your machine (low shank, high shank, slant shank).

There are probably a multitude of designs available for your machine, either Kenmore or generic brands. Once you've determined your machine's shank, it would be a personal decision as to the design you'd prefer, which could be metal or plastic, closed, open, or clear see-thru as well as various shapes, round, oval, etc. There are also some feet that are spring-loaded so they "hop" while you stitch, or feet that are solid.

These are examples of different darning/free motion presser feet.

If you scroll down the page, you will find a manual at this web site:

Or, you might want to contact this company. They say that they have a lot of sewing machine manuals available:

Here is some information about your Kenmore sewing machine model. It's probably a very nice basic machine and if properly maintained will last many more years.

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!

Kenmore sewing ma. model #17922 has a differnet model # for parts


Hi. The issue is probably because 17922 is only part of the model number. Your missing the prefex 385 which makes this model number actually a 385.17922. All Kenmores have a prefex before the actual model number. Other prefixes were 117 , 158 .
Hope this helps .

Kenmore sewing machine model 385 16764


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.
