Is it possible this machine has not been oil in quite a while and therefore, the old oil is turning into a varnish and seizing up the reverse slide mechanism? If this is the case, the machine will need to be serviced to clean the solidifying oil from the points of lubrication and re-oiled to make it work like new again.

Minnnesota model E : threading the machine?


Try Sears. A lot of brands were similar back in those days (because they copied or re-badged other brands), so finding a threading diagram for an old Singer would probably be helpful.

How to thread kenmore sear roebuck sewing machine model 158. 1789181 got at auction no books


Sears carries a lot of manuals for their machines, although usually not free. In the meantime, there are many threading videos that demonstrate machine threading. Machines of similar models will thread similarly.

Probably best to raise the presser foot when threading so the thread will seat in the tension disk.

Before trying to sew, be sure to oil your machine with fresh, good quality sewing machine oil. Open the top, the side near the needle bar, and turn it on its back to get the underside. Place a couple drops of oil every place that metal rubs on metal. Adding hot air from a handheld hairdryer will make the oil effective quicker.

Be sure to install a brand new needle and use good quality thread--not old or bargain bin variety!

On the top left, there is probably a push button. This is the presser foot pressure adjustment. When the machine is stored, this pop-up button should be released (press down on the outer ring). Being stored with the pressure full on will eventually compress the spring that provides the pressure. Also, be sure to store the machine with the presser foot in the down position (preferably on a piece of scrap fabric). Avoid running the machine with the presser foot in direct contact with the feed dogs as this will wear the feed dogs and also create grooves in the presser foot.

I have been looking for 3 days! Still can&#39;t find the manual for the Kenmore Sewing machine model #148.13110! Please can someone HELP terryrp@icloud.com


Unfortunately, the manual is not available for free. Sew USA, http://www.sewusa.com , has various Kenmore sewing machine manuals available. I believe the manual you need will cost $10: http://www.sewusa.com/Sewing_Machine_Manuals/Kenmore_Manuals/Kenmore_1311_Instruction_Manual.htm .

I hope this helps.

Sewing Machine sews in reverse


Frequently this is a lubrication issue. The lubricant may have evaporated and allows it to stick. Or it could be the linkage is broken.

I am looking for a Sewing Machine Manuel for a Sears Roebuck


Do you have a model number? That looks like a serial number.

Pre 1955 machines were made by companies like National Sewing Machine company. After that they were made in Japan. So maybe to help us out... you can post a picture of your machine?
