Go to searspartsdirect.com for Sears and put your model #in and they usually have a blow up diagram of the sewing machines. Try that, it should help you. If, you like my suggest, please rate me.

I have a Kenmore sewing machine, model 158.16800 and I need to disassemble it. I've removed the screws on the bottom and it still won't come apart. The case is metal.


A parts diagram may be helpful:

I suspect there may be some other bolts from the top that fasten to the base.

However, given that your machine may have seized (is there brown gunk inside the machine?), you may be able to address the issue without taking the entire machine apart.

Wheel on right side that controls the needle up and down is very tight...

Kenmore 385.1500 sews only in reverse. it is stuck in reverse sewing.


The reverse mechanism lube us going bad. It is accessed from under the machine under the free arm. Usually indicates that the machine is due for a service and oiling. It shouldn't be a problem to get it done at a good sewing machine dealer/store.

I just got an old Sears Kenmore Sewing machine model 385.17781. Everything is working fine except the reverse stitch. When the reverse button is pressed, the fabric doesn't move or sometimes movin


it sounds like the feed dogs & the reverse button need to be
checked at a repair shop,
to see why they are not responding to each other.

FOOT PEDAL REGULATOR STUCK "ON"


I dont know about the Singer, but I frequently get this on older Bernina models. The foot controller has a suppressor capacitor across the regulator and, on the Berninas, these capacitors fail with age, mainly because they were not specified with a high enough operating voltage for UK markets. Depending upon model, this component might be separately wired directly across the switch contacts or might be on a small circuit board. It is usually rated at 250V - I now routinely replace these with modern parts rated at 1000V and never have returns.

Putting back the pieces of bobbin case on Kenmore Mini Handi


This is for front loading bobbin..........

The Shuttle hook will look very much like this, and marries this to the "half moon" of the fixed shuttle.

3ff0a50.gif
The retaining collar ring that holds it all together has a plate like protrusion (like bull horns), this faces to the top and to the back.......there should be a small lug (or two) with corresponding small hole or slot on the fixed housing (hook race) that locates the ring tightly in the correct position.

There should be 2 swivel arms (black plastic at 4 o'clock & 8 o'clock)) that move to hold the whole thing together by clipping onto a small lug on each side of the ring.

If you tip the machine 30 degrees on its back while you do all this, it makes the process easier, as things are less likely to fall out.........support the back with a soft object for convenience (tissue box, pillow etc)

The bobbin case goes in after the housing is assembled, if you try to do it first, it will prove more difficult.

If this is not quite accurate for your model a photo of the bits would be helpful

Handwheel is stuck


NEVER force a newer model machine. Everything inside is plastic and WILL break. Remove the needle, bobbin, bobbin case, and unthread the machine. See if the handwheel turns. If it doesn't, several things could be wrong. The lower end machines won't have belts to come off, they will be fully gear driven. If it is a better machine, it might be a belt problem. Small pieces of thread could be stuck in a gear mesh somewhere. A gear could be broken. It is possible for a gear to break on the first use.
