I have an old Kenmore and here are the directions from my manual: 1. Draw thread from spool through bobbin winder tension discs. 2. Wind thread around an empty bobbin several times. 3. Place bobbin onto bobbin winder shaft with thread coming from rear of bobbin. Push bobbin winder latch against bobbin until it clicks. 4. Release clutch by turning clutch knob toward you. Start machine.

SOURCE: instructions for theading a Sears Kenmore Sewing machine model 158.14000

all machines thread the same. TTN tension,take up, needle.
Beginning with the spool, guide the thread through the thread guides to the tension assembly. Pull the thread through the tension assembly and test it to make sure the tension is working correctly.
(To do this test,adjust your tension setting to normal or medium or 5 or something in the middle. Raise the presser foot and pull the thread through the tension. It should pull easily!! Lower the presser foot and pull the thread. It should pull noticeably harder.) If it passes this test, continue up through the take up lever,then down through the thread guides to the needle. Make sure your needle is fully inserted and turned the correct way.( If you load your bobbin case from the left side,the needle rule is normally FLAT to the RIGHT is RIGHT. There are some exceptions. If you have a newer style drop in bobbin or your bobbin case loads in the front then the rule is FLAT to the BACK.

To wind the bobbin, guide the thread around the thread guide on
the left top of your machine, then to the bobbin winder. Wind the thread around the bobbin several times, place the bobbin on top of the bobbin winder, push it against the wheel and press the foot pedal. It should stop winding when the bobbin is full or you take your foot off the control

SOURCE: can't tighten clutch on Kenmore zig zag sewing machine.

The clutch has fallen off the shaft. Remove the very small screw in the clutch release screw to remove the clutch release. Place the clutch(round thing with ears on it) back on the shaft with the center ears pointing towards the outside. Put the clutch release screw back on. Tighten it to make sure it works
properly. Put the small screw back in the clutch release screw and test it again. If it will not tighten or release properly, remove the clutch ,rotate it180 degrees and try it again.This should solve your problem.

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.

My feed dogs all of a sudden will not feed the material through. How can I fix it?


Please provide specific information regarding your Bernina model. The older "mechanicals" do require frequent oiling--not just at the hook, but throughout the machine. (When they made these old machines, they didn't really consider that the machines would still be going strong 20, 30, or even 50 years later.) Could be the oil surrounding the feed dogs has dried and is preventing the parts from moving.

If your Bernina is a newer computerized model, you should probably take it for service.

NOTE: The mechanical machines use a different oil than the computerized models. Be sure to get the correct oil for your machine.

Where are the oil ports on an old Kenmore 10 sewing machine #12511..thanks


If your older Kenmore is mechanical (not computerized), it probably can use a bit of oiling beyond what the manual recommends. Older machines frequently were pre-oiled at the factory, however, after many years, the oil tends to dry out and cause the mechanical parts to stick (the reason most older machines are frozen). Perhaps this link will be of help:

Have a Kenmore 1357. Was working perfectly until I began sewing satin ruffle onto fleece. Seems to siege. Needle won't even try to go into material. Just goes to top of presser foot and stops.


Is it a mechanical machine (not computerized)? Did you oil the internal metal parts that rub against other metal parts? With an older mechanical machine, frequently the old oil turns to goo and sticks things rather than lubricates. Use only fresh good quality sewing machine oil. Hand rotate the wheel and place 2 drops of oil every place metal rubs metal (including the bobbin area). To help loosen things, direct hot air from a handheld hairdryer into the interior of the machine.

This process was used on an older Kenmore that had totally frozen, but it was working again within 15 minutes.

Kenmore sewing machine keeps squeaking how to stop it?


Hello Shirlene, If your Kenmore machine has two drive belts, a belt from the motor to an idler pulley and a belt from the idler pulley to the main shaft. I have found that the idler pulley needs some Teflon grease on the idler pulley shaft. On my machine, the squeak would go away for a while if I oiled this idler pulley shaft. But it was short lived. Only grease on the idler pulley shaft would silence the squeak.

If your machine is an older model, open the motor cover and lightly oil the moving parts (there should be a small hole indicating where the oil is needed.) Newer models may not need oiling.

Kenmore model # 11607090 older model, been setting up for several years, but has never been used-cannot unlock the hand wheel. we were able to wind bobbin, but wheel will not turn.


as for the hand wheel not not being able to turn, it's possible that something could be loose or broken

you said it's been sitting for several years,, I would suggest that the machine needs to be serviced
by a sewing machine repair shop, where they can check the handwheel & find out why it won't unlock, & that the gears & inside the machine can be checked & grease & oiled & the timing check also

Do you have your owners manual? If not, go to Sears parts direct and buy one. This will tell you where to put the oil. Now you probably will want to get under the throat plate, just use a small stubby screwdriver and take off the throat plate, usually you find something that looks like felt and thread. There is not felt, so clean that little bugger out. Sometimes you can find tips on the internet for lubricating and cleaning. I think the repair person was not very knowledgeable to say that, the older machines made better than anything today. Take care of it, I still have my first sewing machine, an Old Kenmore and it is my work horse, It will sew anything that my new expensive machines cannot handle.
