Having problems with your Vacuums ?

The presser foot is stuck in the down position on my sewing machine. The lever goes up and down but the foot will not move. Help! I have an old Kenmore 22 sewing machine. Probably got it around 1990. The model number is 385.17622.


Answers :

If you open the left end of the machine .. look inside above the needle and to the back .. you will see a pivot bolt that has either come loose, broken off or fallen out .. replacing that bolt should fix the problem ..

Kenmore YM-40-35 R Sewing Machine Manual (or copy) wanted. If a manual is not available, I'd be OK with instructions for threading the needle and bobbin and any additional details that an expert may have. I think the machine may be a Canadian model number, it looks old, made of metal with screwed in presser foot. Thanks v. much. Elizabeth, [email protected]

I have a model 1315 sears sewing machine and have a new walking foot that doesn't seem to fit or allow me to stitch.......is there a fix? The walking foot is a kenmore brand and we thought it would fit all kenmores?


I am sure that you realize that it has to be for a low shank machine and that you have to take off the presser foot and use the screw to clamp the walking foot on, and the fingers must be on the take up lever screw. Be sure to check the shank size. ... Vacuums

The foot pedal on my Kenmore upright vacuum cleaner has broken three times. The vacuum model number is 116.33923 and the Sear's part number is 8174906. Does Sears make this part in metal instead of plastic? It is becoming expensive to keep replacing this piece when it costs around $20 each time (including shipping) Thank you for your time.

Brand new Kenmore Sewing Machine model 385, 16782 It was sewing fine. But I changed to the zipper foot and now the bottom thread just makes a mess, even when I use the regular thread. Can't think what else has changed - I didnot rethread or touch the bobbin.

I have a Bissell Powersteamer Pro Deluxe, Model 8804 shampooer. I got this bright idea to take the brush off as it was full of hair and debree. Upon putting it back on it appears I'm not getting the brush on properly. Does the belt go around the end with the grooves? Also do the grooves go on the right or left side? From my view point I am looking at the machine with it lying on it's back and I am sitting on the floor looking at the bottom of machine. Sure hope I haven't confused you too m

I have a Kenmore 385.19110 model machine, and the straight and zig zag stitches work just fine, but when I follow the directions in the manual to do a satin stitch (which is use the lowest stitch length) it creates a line that isn't perfect, or uniform, and after an inch or two stops catching the bobbin underneath. Have already tried reinserting the bobbin, rethreading the machine, refilling the bobbin, changing the bobbin, cleaning the needle, changing the tension. Wondering if I just got a mac
