I did not find anything. I am a sewing machine professional and it look to be one of the models I suggested. If you look on the machine somewhere there will be a model number and it will likely be one of the 2 I mentioned.

I can tell about this one is that it was made in Taiwan. Obviously the Viscount 2000 and Dressmaker labels are just badges added on to a generic product.

It does look very similar, doesn't it? My Viscount is a Silver brand: Silver are known more for their industrial knitting machines. It was made in Taiwan, and is very sturdy. I bought mine pre-loved, and have had it for several years. It has never put a stitch wrong except where I bogged up!
I generally use it for teaching these days. Simple to operate, some nice household stitches, and the kids find it very hard to make it go wrong!
Sheeshe, it's a very basic mechanical machine. Clear ALL the tangled threads from it, take the bobbin case ans shuttle out and clean thoroughly, oil, and replace. Make sure the tension disks are cleared of all threads and cleaned: I usually use a microfibre spectacle cleaning cloth. Give it a new needle and thread up, carefully following the upper thread path and making sure that the bobbin thread is in the case properly, in the right way round with the thread under the leaf spring. Test GENTLY! If you still have problems, it's well worth getting it serviced.

Yes Badged Generic is correct, Even Sears had some models like that. I do believe they were manufactured by JIC

I'm not sure if they have your exact model, but they may have something close.

I am know this is an old thread but I am at a loss as to what else to do, I have the same JCPenney model 6912 as you have, I have looked on every single website on the internet and contacted JCPenney trying to come up with an owners manual and have had no luck.... please if you were able to obtain a copy let me know where so I can get one as well, or I will pay you if you would be willing to photocopy yours and mail it to me or scan it and email it to me.... I've been trying for months to get my hands on this manual and Im ready to give up and throw this never used machine in the garbage, lol.... You can find me on Facebook as Kristen Temple or here is my email snipped-for-privacy@gmail.com If anybody else has this manual please feel free to contact me and help me out and thank you all in advance....
