can you help me navigate this site?  I want to ask how to thread my grandma's vintage Kenmore sewing machine, but can't seem to find the post thingy to click on.

jrsgirlnow, Did you find a foot control? I am in the same boat. I just picked up a 158.1792080 for $10 thinking I could easily find a foot control/power cord on Sewing Parts Online but I can't find one there or anywhere!

I did find the manual here - http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/user-manuals/1581792080-kenmore-parts-manual?manualIndex=0

If you need a foot controller, post a picture of the part that plugs in, or where it plugs in, and someone (like me, I have 2 foot controllers that don't fit any of my machines) might have a foot that works.  It's the plug that's the tricky part. 

If you have a plug, you can wire it to a different foot.  But you need the plug!
