Question about Kenmore 11206 / 11306 / 11506 / 11606
The bobbin thread is catching but the thread still seems to be bunching alot underneath.It is a mess under there. My sister has that problem only when she sews in reverse.
Hope someone has some good answers for this one.
Be sure that the thread is in the TAKE-UP lever. There are four thead guide the thread must pass through. From the spool through the first thread guide at #1 than straight down to #2 than up to #3 throught the take-up lever and straight down to the left of the needle and throught hte neele form fornt ot back.
If the thread is not in that take-up lever the machine will not have any top tension (or be regulated) it will flood the machine with thread and wrap around that bobbin.
Also, be sure have you presser foot int he up position while threading this way the thread will surely pass through the tension disks, Set your top tension at 4, use good quality thread (get rid of the dual duty or all purpose) All of these steps will ensure a perfect balanced stitch.
