How To Check How Old Is My Sewing Machine?


To check the age of your sewing machine you’ll need to look for the manufacturer’s serial number.

This can usually be found on a plate somewhere on the machine.

Once you have the serial number you can contact the company or do a bit of research online to find out when the machine was made. 

If you’re not sure where to look for the serial number try checking these common places: 

  • On the side or back of the main body casting 
  • Underneath the free arm 
  • On a small metal plate near where the power cord enters the sewing machine 
  • In front near where the needle goes into the housing 
  • On a flat surface on the back of the arm extension

Finally once you have the serial number and know the manufacturer you can try contacting them directly to ask about the age of your machine.

They may have records that can help you determine the exact date it was made.
