Question about Kenmore 11101 Mechanical Sewing Machine

1 Answer

Manual I need a manual for Kenmore Sewing Machine Model Number 1249380. I misplaced the manual. I am having problems with the thread bunching up in the bobbin area. I think that if I had a manual I would probably be able to figure out what the user error is. This machine belonged to my parents and I hadn't used a machine like this in a long time. Marci

I need a manuel for 11206609 I am trouble with the bobbin catching and the thread is bunching. I also need to a manuel to see how to properly thread the machine.


I can't find a manual for that exact model, but I found a service manual and instruction manual for a 11206630. They will, hopefully, be close to your machine. Normanlly, when the model numbers are that close, the manuals are very close as well.

The links are http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/owner_manuals/133369/KENMORE-Mechanical-Sewing-1008846L?brand_name_search=Kenmore+11206+Sewing+Machine and

I hope these are helpful!

You can buy the paper manual here for $9.95 plus shipping: http://www.sewconsult.com/kenmore/385%20manuals/kenmore_385_source_manuals.htm
Or you can buy a printable PDF download here for $10: http://www.sewingmanuals.com/Sewing_Machine_Manuals/Kenmore_385.htm
Unfortunately, it doesn't look like the manual for your model can be found online for free.

Need online manual


If you are having problems with the thread on the underside of the fabric, that is usually the upper tension. Check to make sure that it is threaded correctly. If so, make sure that the thread is inside the tension disc and that there are no pieces of thread caught in the tension. If it is threaded and there are no thread caught up in the tension assembly, adjust your tension dial to a slightly higher number. Do this until you get a good stitch.

Thread is bunching up around the bobbin casing


On the bobbin case is a small screw if it is to loose the thread won't feed like it should make sure that screw is tight but not so tight you can't get the thread through it. Also check to make sure you have threaded the top right. hope that helps

Bobbin thread bunching


I had that problem, too, then realized my needle was in the wrong way. The flat side needs to be inserted AWAY from you.
I have a Kenmore 16528. It was such an easy solution! I was ready to take it in for repairs! Hope that helps!
