Question about Kenmore 19233 Computerized Sewing Machine
I thread the machine start sewing the thread breaks after 2 inches. I have changed tension and thread width but nothing seems to help. I don't use the machine much because of this problem. I'm about ready to take it in to a repair shop but hope it is only a small problem. Help!
I have this same machine, it belonged to my husbands grandmother and was given to me after she passed. I let it sit for a few years before I got it out to use it, it was just too emotional. I had this same problem, and after cleaning, it worked fine. I followed the instructions in the manual for taking out the bobbin, bobbin case and metal parts that hold it in the machine. (there are pictures in the manual to help you take it out, take it apart, and put it back in... sounds hard but it's really not). I used a tooth brush to get all of the dust bunnies out (you could go over with a vacuum hose too, after the toothbrush cleaning). After I did this it worked fine. You may want to look in the manual about oiling the machine, if it's been years since it's been done, that might help to. Hope you get it working! I love this machine, it works well and is good quality. (they don't make sewing machines like they used to, the only one I'll buy is a Kenmore!)
