My Kenmore 158.523 use to run fine. Then I got busy and it has lain unused for about 15 years. Now it's oiled and running, but the material is NOT going through.
The feed dogs go up and down but not back and forth. Is this normal? Could this be the problem?
Any ideas? Thanks.

I know this is an old post from you...but you wouldn't happen to still have the Sears Kenmore sewing machine still, would you? My Mom gave me hers when she moved and she lost the foot pedal thinking it was no big deal until we tried to plug it in only to find that the power cord to the machine motor also connects to the foot pedal. So now I am on the search for the foot pedal/power cord. You could get back to me by emailing me... [email protected]
Thanks for your time,

Someone gave me a Kenmore sewing machine # 36 without a manual and I would really like to have a manual. I have looked on the Kenmore website, but nothing for a #36. Suggestions please.

Mine is in a cabinet and the page I found told me $10.00 that's mine in a cabinet. I will just keep it.
