Question about Sewing Machines
I need help with my bobbin, it does not move when I sew, the black c- part inside does not turn the bobbin,the teeth move up and down and seem to work well, its just the bobbin part.
Im not sure if this will help but thought I would pass it along. My Pfaff 6122 tells me to check bobbin for thread unrolling clockwise before you place it back in the machine. I had mine turned to un roll counter clockwise, this is wrong, the bobbin will fall out when you pull on the thread while you are holding it in your hand. You may just keep putting it in backwards. Hope this works for you. J.R.

The clutch has fallen off the shaft. Remove the very small screw in the clutch release screw to remove the clutch release. Place the clutch(round thing with ears on it) back on the shaft with the center ears pointing towards the outside. Put the clutch release screw back on. Tighten it to make sure it works
properly. Put the small screw back in the clutch release screw and test it again. If it will not tighten or release properly, remove the clutch ,rotate it180 degrees and try it again.This should solve your problem.

Ensure that you are threaded correctly, set your tension for roughly 4.5 and "floss" your machine when threading by grabbing the thread by the needle immediately prior to threading the needle with your left hand, and the thread on the top by the spool with your right hand; then pull the thread back and forth briefly.
Ensure that your bobbin is in the bobbin case in the correct orientation.
Ensure that your feed dogs are in the "up" position. Many inexpensive machines do not have the option to drop the feed dogs, and I believe your kenmore to be one that lacks the option, but consult your manual just to be sure.
Also make sure you're using a good quality thread. Use a European thread, and definitely avoid anything from the dollar bin or any kind of "dual duty" type thread. Cheap thread causes nasty nasty things to happen to sewing machines.
If none of these fixes solves your problem, let me know; but going through the above will solve 99% of problems like you're describing.
