|Kenmore 158.1931 (left) and 158.1760 (right)|
Today I was working on the Kenmore 158.1931 trying to sort out what was wrong with the cam function. I retrieved my 158.1760 from the sewing loft so that I could compare their innards. I thought that the cams worked on the 1760. Turns out, they don't. HAH. Guess I will have to service my "go to" machine soon !
The machines look identical to me. OK the end panel on the 1931 is a different color. The tension assembly is also a different color. But barely different. Who knows why Sears labeled them with such disparate numbers? Their innards are a bit different, too. (In this photo the standard cam is installed in the 1760 and the decorative cam is installed in the 1931)
