Reattaching Thread Tension Knob on a Kenmore Machine?

Reattaching Thread Tension Knob on a Kenmore Machine - knob attachment spotI'm trying to learn how to sew with my mom's Kenmore Ultra-Stitch 8 sewing machine. The first step was to set it up. However, the upper tension thread control knob/device is not attached to the machine and I cannot figure out how to reattach it. I have the manual, but it doesn't provide any info on this. Can anyone walk me through how to fix this?

So when was the last time your mom used it? Did it really come unattached? I am really suspicious of this as I have never seen a sewing machine that needed pre-assembly, or that the knobs were just taken off, unless it was easy/obvious how to put it back on. Especially if the manual does not provide the info

it is possible that this machine needs servicing because the knob broke off. If I were you I'd save myself some time and frustration and go to a machine repairman.

From what I am seeing there was a problem with the tension control on the machine and someone took it apart to buy a new one. I believe all the parts are not there and this is why you can't put it back together.

You will need to order the new parts and it will be a lot easier to assemble this one you have them.
