Question and Answers

Q:

Vertical sewing machine?

A:

Sewing does create good friendships. I attached two links below that should help. The second link is to the owner's manual for information about this machine. The second link is to the model and parts list at Sears Parts Direct. Hope this helps you help your friend.

This machine has a horizontal bobbin holder (not a vertical one). I don't believe that a quilting foot that is designed for a vertical sewing machine will work on your model. I did not see a quilting foot listed for model 385.17826690. I will check further and update this thread if I find a quilting foot that will work on your sewing machine.

The quilting foot for that model of sewing machine is part number 214872011. You can order that foot from the Sears PartsDirect.com website. I provided a direct link for that part below this response. Let me know if you need more help.

Q:

I need to get a manual for my sewing machine model #385-17826690,In english only.I notice that the manual for this machine has other foreign languages with it.

A:

Understanding error codes is very confusing and need to be checked as soon as possible because we don't know what exactly it means but can be something very serious. While furthering your search here on Manage My Life i noticed that someone else had asked a similar question with a response from an expert. I have attached the link below if you are interested in viewing the website while waiting on your response from an expert. Good luck!

Q:

What will release the bobbin winder that is stuck to the right on my Kenmore sewing machine model 385.17826690?

A:

The instructions from your owner's manual for winding the bobbin are shown in the image below. Follow these instructions for winding your bobbin. If the bobbin winder is stuck and will not move, you can use the access information in the bottom of the image to access this area to see if you can determine why the bobbin winder is stuck. If you are not able to determine the cause of this problem, then the sewing machine will likely need to be serviced by a technician.
