Subject: Kenmore C877-60 (ZigZag Deluxe) Date: 5/8/12 2:25 AM

Good day.
After much searching, I FINALLY found the model number. (lol). This machine was gifted to me, as I desperately wanted a SM to make my little jewelry bags with. I've confirmed with an "expert" that the model is 877-60, and HE says there is no manual for it. :/

Can someone PLEASE prove him wrong? I've looked everywhere on the net, read hundreds of pages and sites, my eyes are going cross!

I have a question about adjusting the presser foot (if I can at all), and how to make the groove dog (??? name???) actually push and pull the fabric. as it is, I have to pull it, push it myself, and since I'm extra super green at sewing, I get mighty nervous when my fingers are near that needle.

(sorry, rambling here).

anyone? I would truly TRULY love an answer that YES! someone has the manual. ^_^ A friend has another machine (apparently), but well, I KNOW these older ones are top grade (not cheapo stuff ya know?) and I don't know when she can bring it. I'm itching to start (ok continue) this new addiction.I've made one little bag so far... and I NEED to make more. Guess its back to painting until I can figure this out.

Thanks for reading, and thanks for having me :)
God Bless, Cynthia

Check the site Relics they might have it. They do charge for the manuals.

I could not get the photo link to work for me.

As tgm notes, the photo link doesn't work. Perhaps try that again.

A lot of Kenmore machines have both a "name" (like Ultra 12, Model 52, or, apparently in your case, C877 something) and a model number. The model number is what identifies the machine with regard to getting the correct manual and parts. A Kenmore sewing machine model number looks like XXX.YYYYYY.

XXX is always three digits, typically 117, 148, 158, or 385, indicating the manufacturer. (117 is White, IIRC; 148 is Soryu, 158 is Maruzen/Jaguar, 385 is Janome.)

The YYYYY can be two to five digits in my experience, and often corresponds to the so-called model name of the unit. (e.g., .17800 might be referred to as a model 178). However, you do need all these numbers -- prefix and model -- to identify the machine.

The model number plate is sometimes on the back, near the bottom of the pillar, and sometimes on the underside (requiring you to place the machine, carefully, on its back or front, to find it).

If you can find that number, you'll increase your chances of getting the manual.

Hi. I just picked up a Kenmore 877-61. I do have a manual for it. If you want to message me privately, we could exchange emails and compare notes. I haven't been able to find much online for this model either.

Your post was quite a while ago so you may be quite familiar with the machine by now.

Hi,I have the original English and French manuals for my Kenmore 877.07.After looking at all the manual pictures in the link,I also found the identical sewing machine called a Deluxe Zig Zag,( #51 in the link).In case anyone else needs a manual for a Kenmore 877.,maybe you can find it here too.
