Question and Answers

Q:

The stitches are not locking on the fabric. Kenmore 38519112 Kenmore 38519112

A:

Clean the hook race and check your threading first (if you haven't already done that). Here's a link for your owner's manual that provides information on those tasks in case you need it: Kenmore Sewing Machine 385.19112 Owner's Manual. I recommend that you oil the machine also.

Perform the basic troubleshooting described in the owner's manual. If that doesn't help, then you likely have a timing issue. I recommend that you have a service technician adjust the timing. You can carry the sewing machine into your nearest Sears store or Sears Repair Center and they'll send it off for service for a reasonable diagnostic fee. If you want to attempt to fix the timing yourself, let us know and we'll provide some tips.

Thanks for choosing Sears PartsDirect.

Q:

Loose threads whenn sewing with Kenmore 38519112

A:

If you are not using a new, sharp needle, I recommend that you change that needle to a new one. I also recommend that you clean the hook race and feed dogs. A dull/bent needle or lint build-up in the hook race can cause this problem.

I also recommend that you try adjusting the thread tension as shown on page 26 of your manual. Adjusting that thread tension may help you fix this problem.

Here is a link for the owner's manual in case you need it: Owner's Manual .

I hope that these tips help. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.

If you are not able to resolve this problem, the sewing machine may need service. Here is a link for the Sears Service website that shows drop-off locations for repair: Sears Home Services .
