Generally it is a rubber wheel......bobbin winder rubber........different models have different diameter, but Kenmore is a Janome or New Home brand, so see your local dealer..........if you can remove the top cover you will see the mechanism, but if it is a 2 part moulded body, take it in to the shop because you will break things without a service manual.
Janome Dealer Finder in USA........HERE
if elsewhere, google Janome for your own country.

I can't seem to wind a bobbin. I've done everything in the manual but it just seizes up- doesn't spin.

you placed the bobin upside down

one side is flat the other is keyed

so place the keyed side down
usual fault with winders

bobins are easy... read again the manual slowly

The plastic gear that rotate the bobin housing rotation was broken, how can I order it that part(hobby 541), I don,t know that part name.

I'd call it a bobbin drive gear, but your best bet is to look for a parts list for your machine. These usually have diagrams and tables that give the manufacturer's part numbers.

If I understand the problem, the bobin winder has probably lost a rubber 'o' ring.

Unscrew the two top screws and remove the top cover. At the base of the bobin spindle is a metal disk that should have a rubber 'o' ring on it. This will perish over time and break off.

When the bobin winder is pushed sideways into the active position, this should contact the main turning handle thingy (that's a technical term) and be spun around. Check if the bobin 'o' ring is making contact or if it is even there at all. Any sewing machine repair shop (or good automotive store if you're desperate) will have a replacement.

I think i havent put my bobin in correctly!!

Hi I did get my machine fixed. I called the repairman that was a friend and he told me what to look for. I did. He said to remove the bobbin and the cariage. Take a light and look all in the inside around every moving part for any thread tangled. You will really have to look good becauce the thread changes colors with oils in the machine. It is difficult to get it out. I had to use a very long apolstry needle I had to reach the thread wrapped around the gears. THen use the tweezers and keep on until I got it all out. You have to be very careful as the gears are plastic. Mine is going now. THanks all.
