Question about Kenmore 19233 Computerized Sewing Machine
It seams my bobbin threat is to tight. The bottom fabric layer is puckering not the top. I'm not sure how to adjust it. I have tried fiddeling around with the top tention nothing changes except the way the thread look from the top the bottom thread stays very tight. I took the casing off and cleaned all around and nothing,... I also tried turning the front screw on the bobbin casing 1/4 turn to the left...thinking lefty lossy haha. I hope you can help me Thanks! Could it be the feed dogs maybe? I miss my old machine! Cindy
When this happens it is because the thread tension was not right so it gets stuck under the bobbin case and the feed dogs. Use a bigger lint brush and take out the bobbin casing and clean out the shuttle. When you rethread pull slightly on the thread before you feed it through the needle. This will make sure the thread is properly in the tension discs.

SOURCE: Bottom thread will not catch
Unplug the machine and remove the needle plate so that the bobbin case if fully exposed. Lift out the bobbin case and the cup that it sets in will be visible. Locate the "hook" on this cup. It is a finger with a sharp point at the upper edge of the cup. The hook is what grabs the thread from the needle while sewing.
If the hook catches the thread from the needle, put everything back together and try threading again.

I am working on one right now I am a sewing machine mechanic with www.icanhelpsew.com and it looks like because it doubled as a blender in the 60's the timing gets thrown off quite often. So throw the 60's thread to the trash time it, oil it, THREAD it right, and it's purring for another round of daiquiris. Oh and along with the cheap thread it does not like cheap tequila. It has a good motor for thicker fabrics and also mudslides. Really do what I said and its off to happy hour you go. Happy Sewing and Happy Blending! Mine is running smooth waters now. Nice Machine ... kinda grows on you and makes you want to paint the world puke green. C.Slayton

If you getting loops on the bottom of your material, you need to
re-thread the top of your machine. I say this because it is very rare
when you will have to adjust the bobbin tension. But if you must,
looking straight down at the bobbin as a clock- at 6:00 is the bobbin
tension adjustment- lefty lucy, righty tighty. Hope this helps.
Make sure the needle is inserted in the machine properly- a good rule of thumb is the flat side of the needle should go to the opposite side of the last thread guide. Also make sure the machine is threaded correct
There is no standard tension for any machine to be set at. They start at four when they are brand new, however, after years and years the springs become compressed. You could start at four and then play around with it from there. If you are getting loops underneath the material, you are threading the machine incorrectly.
