Question about Vacuums

1 Answer

I am in need of a manual for a sears kenmore sewing machine model # 385.17124790. I purchased it from a friend and she did not have the manual that came with it. Also, I need a picture of the machine as it was missing the face plate that covers the bobbin. Is there anywhere that I could purchase this part for cheap? Thank you for your help in this matter.

Hi, pop the bobbin out of the chamber, wind it with the thread of your choice and replace it in the sewing machine. Threading it from this point is a straightforward process.

Hold the bobbin case in your left hand with the hinged latch facing to the left and the opening facing to the right. Grasp the filled bobbin in your right hand with about 3 inches of thread extending from the bobbin. The thread must go around the bobbin in a clockwise direction.
Insert the bobbin into the bobbin case and pull the thread into the slot on the side of the bobbin case.
Continue to pull the thread through the slot until it passes through a tension spring. Pull out several more inches of thread so the thread tail is approximately 5 inches long.
Make sure the sewing machine needle is all the way up.
Hold the bobbin case by the hinged latch and make sure the thread tail extends down the right edge of the bobbin case. Open the bobbin compartment.
Insert the bobbin case into the bobbin compartment by fitting it in. Find the small notch where the top of the bobbin case fits. Let go of the hinged latch and fold it back onto the bobbin case. Close the bobbin compartment.
Grasp the top thread and turn the hand wheel on the side of the sewing machine toward you. Turn until the needle goes up and down several times, and then pull carefully on the thread. This pulling should bring up the lower bobbin thread.
Pull the upper and lower threads together and extend them out toward the back of the sewing machine to begin sewing.

This might sound too basic for you but check that the thread is tight around the bobbin. Make sure that the bobbin is in the right way around - the bobbin thread should double back on itself coming out of the bobbin holder. The bobbin tension adjustment is the small screw in the plate on the bobbin case that the thread passes under as it comes off the bobbin and goes out. This might not be exactly the same as yours but should give you an idea of the position.

Owners manual for kenmore power-mate # 116


Greetings from GoVacuum,

I wasn't able to find the manual for the Kenmore model, however I did find the instruction manual for the corresponding Panasonic canister vacuum cleaner. Your particular Kenmore model is actually made by Panasonic for Sears, and then Sears puts the Kenmore name on the vacuum cleaner. They are identical internally, and have the same parts and components, besides the filter that is behind the bag. Sears makes Panasonic put a specially designed filter in the Kenmore's so that the customer has to go back and purchase that filter from Sears.

To download the instruction manual, please visit the link below;

You can also find a parts schematic of the power head below if you need to purchase parts;
