I realy dont think that you will find a new motor for a old kenmore, you may be able to find one on craigslist/ebay. How do you know it is the motor? Could just need new brushes or a new foot control. I have never had a bad motor on a old kenmore. replaced brushes and many foot cotrols.
Not that it could not happen but it would be rare.
hope this helps

    There are sparks and smoke and a burning smell coming out of the motor case. Is it possible those symptoms could mean something other than a failing motor? The unit sat unused for a long time and I inherited it for free. I was hoping to spend about $50 to fix it instead of investing in a new machine.

    Well i admit that smoke and sparkes sound bad.
    Motor brushes will put off a very small amount of sparks. The smoke could be from dust on the motor. I would take it outside and run it and full speed for a bit and see if the simptops clear up. The fact that it runs make me think that the motor is still salvageable for someone who has the imbishion to work on it. BE CARFULL keep it away from anything that could burn and be ready to unplug it. . Safty first.

Looking for a users manual for a Sears Kenmore sewing machine model 158.120, not a parts manual.


I would first try Google and ask for service manual for your model. A close model match may do the trick as usually very little variation in same model series. Also, if you locate a Sears service center nearby, they may be able to help you find or instruct you in what you need . Good hunting

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.
