Question about Kenmore 19233 Computerized Sewing Machine

1 Answer

Bobbin The piece that holds the bobbin isn't turning. I'm not sure if it's supposed to, but my thread is not being picked up by the needle when i turn the hand knob on the side. The machine is almost completely new. Does anyone know if it's broken or am I just doing something wrong?

    My machine is having a similar problem. I can get it to pick up the string sometimes, but it will attempt 2-3 stiches and then catch and make a huge knot of thread under the plate. The machine is almost brand new. Very disappointing.

It doesn't turn. Make sure you threaded the bobbin correctly (see manual)and try using the needle up-down button

Needle will not pick up bottom thread


Try a brand new needle. Verify it is installed correctly.

Remove the bobbin. Check that the bobbin is turning the correct direction and the thread is threaded correctly in the bobbin case. Reinstall the bobbin case and make sure that it latches.

Retest your machine. Manually turn the handwheel and watch the needle descend and see if the thread picks up the bobbin thread. If not, then the machine may have a timing issue. Take it for service.

When I press on the pedal the machine just makes a 'vruuuuuu' sound, and when it sews it tangles around the bobbin! It also does not pick up the bobbin thread


1. The bobbin may be in backwards.
2. The bobbin thread & top thread need to be pulled to the back before starting the stitching
3. You need a ballpoint rather than universal needle to sew on t-shirt knits.
4. the needle is in the machine backwards
5. Make sure the needle is the correct one for the fabric being sewed
6. Needle inserted wrong in the needle holder
7. Damaged needle
8. Warped bobbin
9.First make sure the bobbin-winding spindle (located on top of your machine) has been pushed back to the left for sewing.
10.If it is not in the correct position, the needle will not go down and pick-up your bobbin thread.
11.Next make sure your needle is inserted correctly, with the flat side facing back.
12.Also, make sure your bobbin is in correctly
13.the upper tension disks of your machine are threaded correctly.
14.Make sure the presser foot is up when seating the thread through the upper tension.
15.Turn the handwheel towards you only and hold the needle thread lightly.
16.could be a timing problem

Singer 328 is not stiching


if upper thread correct, check bobbin is wound and inserted correctly. Pulling bobbin thread, the bobbin should turn counter clockwise. make sure thread is under bobbin case tension spring. With cover plate open hold needle thread and turn hand wheel towards you to see if hook picks up needle thread and passes it around bobbin case. if not check hook timing

I recently received a Juki TL-98Q and a long arm quilting machine. Everything is set up and I have put two sheets with cotton batting between them on the machine so that I can practice. I cannot get...


Hi Donna:
This has two parts; 1) pick up thread, and 2) needle hole direction.
1) To begin and pick up the bobbin thread, typically I start without any material under the arm. Begin with a tail of thread about 6" long pulled out from the bobbin, leave it loose. Then holding taunt, onto about 3" of the upper thread after it leaves the needle, I cycle the machine once. Then it should have captured the bobbin thread. Raise the pressure foot (with the needle 'UP') and slide something between that gap to pull out both threads (Upper and Lower), a ruler or your thread trimming scissors are handy for this. Pull the threads and you should see both upper and lower threads now, ready to sew. Apology for covering this basic item, but . . .
2) As you move into 'new' machines, sometimes the needle is no longer setup with the hole front to back. The gotcha is that on some (bigger) machine the hole goes side to side (yes the needle is rotated a 1/4 turn). As a rule of thumb, the thread goes through the needle and points right at the hook. Small machines may have the bobbin right 'behind' the needle. Larger machines often have the bobbin (and hook) beside (often to the right) of the needle. That means to install the needle with the hole going left and right, and the cutout groove pointed to the side with the hand-wheel.
End.

I broke a needle and now it wont pick up bobbin tread


Hello

Make sure the needle is facing in the correct direction,stitches don't form, or skip badly when the needle is turned around.

Put the bobbin in the bobbin case (right way around) leaving a 2-3" tail.

Thread the top of the machine correctly, leaving a 3-4" tail after threading the needle.

make certain your bobbin in locked into position in it's case and the thread is coming from the bobbin in the correct direction. When holding my metal bobbin in my hand, the thread pulls counter clockwise before placing it into my front loading bobbin case.

Also check if the needle is not properly installed in the needle bar,the machine is not threaded properly or the machine needs adjustment or repair..

The top thread won't catch the bobbin thread to pull it through. It almost seems like it doesn't go around to pick it up. Or is the bobbin thread supposed to pop up more for pick up? This is my Mom's...


check the needle to see if it's damaged
have a thread tail for the top thread & bobbin thread of 3-4 inches
try this & see if it helps you
make sure there's a 3-4 inch bobbin thread then, hold the top thread tail (3-4 inches) with your fingers away from the needle & then use the handwheel on the right side of the machine & lower the needle down into the bobbin area & see if it pick up the bobbin thread that way
make sure there's no lint or loose threads in bobbin area

How do you get the needle to go down to pick up the bobbin?


Thread top needle, pull and hold thread in back, make sure your bobbin is threaded and in correctly, turn the wheel toward you it will pick up the bobbin thread and bring it up top. Then seperate your threads up on top. Is that what you were asking?

Bobbin


IMPORTANT: Always use a metal bobbin, or the magnetized bobbin case will not be able to function properly, resulting in a lack of tension on the bobbin thread.
9a8cb19.jpg Step 1:
Turn the handwheel counter-clockwise until the needle is in its highest position. Raise the presser foot lifter. Pull the slide plate forward and remove the empty bobbin.
Step 2:
Place the filled bobbin into the bobbin case, and pull about 4" of thread from the new bobbin. Make sure that the bobbin turns clockwise when the thread is pulled, or you will not have correct tension when you begin to sew.
Step 3:
Hold the needle thread loosely with your left hand. Turn the handwheel toward you, first lowering the needle, and continuing to turn the handwheel until the needle comes to its highest position.
Step 4:
Lightly pull up the needle thread and pick up the bobbin thread which will appear through the needle plate slot. Then pull both threads to the back of the machine leaving a 4" thread tail. Push slide plate back in.

Hope this helps. -samson39
