If your having trouble finding your model number we recommend that you first look at the page on our site for your brand. This will help you to get familiar with the model numbers of that brand and make it easier to determine if it's the actual machine model number you've located or if its something else like a serial number, cabinet number, motor number, etc...

Tips!

 

 

Brother- A lot of Brother model numbers start with a VX  XL  or XR. This is important when ordering to make sure you receive the correct manual.  

 

 

 

.  

 

Kenmore- Most Kenmore models start with a 3 digit prefix like 117  148  158  385. Then there is usually at least 4 more numbers after that. But there can be up to 10 numbers!  As long as the first 4 numbers after the first 3 digit prefix match. Then its the correct manual for your machine. Example: Model# 158.17511081 would use the manual 158.1751 or the manual labeled just "1751". 

Kenmore-models with only 3 numbers after the 3 digit prefix will use the manual that matches the first 2 numbers. Example: Model# 158.950 will use the manual "95" , so would the model# 158.953 , 158.957 and so on...

One really important Kenmore tip! The Numbers 1120, 2156, 6186 are not machine model numbers!!! They are model numbers for something else. Most likely the motor.

. Deluxe Zig Zag- The deluxe zigzag models can cover a variety of machines. Including Dressmaker, Nelco, Morse and a lot more! When looking for the model number or manual for these brands we suggest that you look at the pictures on the Deluze zigzag page and see if there's a match to your machine.

  .  
. Wards- Many Wards/Signature models are very similar. In fact some manuals are so close to other models that only 1 or 2 pages are different. Which means there's another knob or function on one model but not the other, but everything else is exactly the same! We suggest when looking for these models to see the pictures on that page and look for a machine that's close to yours.
