It needed a new tension dial, and it was missing it’s foot control. I ordered a tension dial, and I installed it. Wow, was that slick! We came home with the intention of ordering a foot control for it, or at least a new lead cord, which we would add a foot control to from our ‘stash’, but it just so happened, we had a complete cord and foot control that would fit this machine. How neat was that?
This Kenmore is a straight and zigzag machine, but it sounds, and sews strong. All I did was clean and oil it. It had no ‘stuck’ parts or issues that needed solved. It was raring to go! This machine will make someone a wonderful machine.
All I had to do to install the new tension dial, was open the end door, loosen a tiny screw, pull out the old tension dial (which was bent and missing parts), and pop in the new one.
One more for ‘the project’. Thanks Patty! This machine will be donated in your name.
