I am not able thred the thred from the bobbin. The thred got jammed up when I was sewing, and I removed the bobbin and now I can't get the thred back in.


What is blocking the hook and shuttle? I am not too sure what you are asking, where are you trying to put the thread? Please, be more clear.

Why is my machine skipping stitches


this is caused by uneven winding of the bobbin, sometimes the spool of thread winds unevenly when it travels up and down the spool. the best solution i have found is to use small spools of thread when winding the bobbins

No bobbin tension


If the thread is loose on the bottom of the fabric, it's actually the top thread is too loose. Think of 2 little elves playing tug of war in your machine, one on toip and one underneath. If you have loops on bottom, the top needs to pull harder (tighten top tension)

Problem with my machine


If you're not picking up a bobbin thread, it's either a timing issue, or the hook/needle clearance. Usually, with the hook/needle clearance the skipping stitch problem will be intermittent. If it's a timing issue, it may not pick up the bobbin at all.

Problem of pulling the thread up from the bobbin place


I will be happy to resolve a tension issue with this machine but I need more information. I'm not sur ewhat you mean "hold the bobbin thread up well"

Manual can be ordered at www.sears.com or google kenmore owner's manuals and there are sites that you can download. I don't of any free ones though.

Threading the Bobbin


Place the bobbin in the bobbin case making sure the thread feeds clockwise. Draw the thread through the slot on the case. Continue to draw under the tension spring and through the opening pulling out about 6" of thread. Hold the latch open, position the bobbin case into the suttle and release the latch. THe case should lock into place when the latch is relaeased.

With the top thread, hold out about 5" to the left. While holding on tot he top thread, turn the hand wheel toward you and you should see a loop at the feed dogs. grab the two thread and bring them behind the presser foot.
