Question about Sewing Machines
I just changed the belt on the lower shaft of the sewing machine but now the needle and bobbin are out of timing...Are there timing marks anywhere?
Hi. The issue is probably because 17922 is only part of the model number. Your missing the prefex 385 which makes this model number actually a 385.17922. All Kenmores have a prefex before the actual model number. Other prefixes were 117 , 158 .
Hope this helps .

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.

The top tension is dependent not just on the tension dial, but also on the little disks that you go through to thread the machine. If it is not threaded correctly, you will get bunching underneath. Sometimes I just have to rethread the machine-- when you get to the disks- hold the thread taut and push it through the disks before going up to the arm part. Here is a threading picture I found- but it doesn't point out the disks too much. Once the machine is stitching nicely, then the tension dial can be used to flatten out the stitches.
