    Where do I find the Model Number for my machine? There is a metal plate mounted in the wood cabinet with a model number, but I can't seem to match that number to any manual I found. The model number on the plate is 566 93610 if that helps.

I have a model 148-19371. I can't find my manual. I need to lower the dog feet so I can do free stitching.
Does anyone know if the switch at the front that says UP has something to do with this?
If so, how do I get that switch to move, it seems to be locked or just stuck in this position for the past 30 years.

    I just found the same model 19371 and cannot find the manual. I took off the bottom to figure out what that up on switch is about but it does not seem to connect to the feet dogs.

Hi Freysauto,

You can obtain the Owners Manual here: Instruction Manual Kenmore 385 18221 Models

'Manage My Life' reports "There is no service manual offered for your model sewing machine. Some of the older sewing machines didn't have an owner's manual and service manuals were offered for them. There is an owners manual for your sewing machine, but no service manual." Can download service manual for Kenmore sewing machine 385 18221...

Good luck.

I have a Kenmore Sewing Machine (old) Model E-6354 that was given to me but it doesn't have a manual so I don't know how to thread it or operate it.

Hi. I tried looking for your manual but am having a problem with that model number. Kenmore model numbers begin with three numbers (like 117 or 385), then a dot, then four (or more) numbers, like 117.1234. But here's a link to a group that specializes in older Kenmores like yours and they should be able to help.

I really love old sewing machines and am really glad to see them used and loved.

Happy Sewing!
