Question about Kenmore Sewing Machines
I have a Kenmore sewing machine model 12014. I took apart the shuttle driver to clean the bobbin area and then put it back together. Now it is loose and the pieces come out of their spots when I start to sew. This gets the needle stuck and obviously I can't sew.
I have taken the shuttle pieces out again and again and they are fine and stay in while I manually move the needle, but once I put the bobbin case into the shuttle driver the shuttle comes loose and the needle gets stuck between the shuttle and the shuttle race cover.
If your bobbin area is making a noise, then do NOT sew with the machine until a reputable technician looks at it. You may have thrown something just a little off line - not enough to affect sewing NOW, but it could easily cause troubles down the line.
I suggest you call ahead and talk directly to the repair person - not to the sales person. Ask if you can bring in the machine while he/she is in the shop so they can listen while you run it.
You aren't trying to cheat the store out of the repair charge, just ensuring that the problem is diagnosed correctly.
You paid lots of money for this machine - it deserves good care.

SOURCE: I have a Brother SE-270D
its the problem of the timing belt in your machine its extra loosen or extra tightned or is slightly came out of its position or finally broken.
as the machine is proper just missing the proper speed as it should be .
it is running continuosly as you stated.
check the timing belt and make it proper if its worn out and needs replacement this is how its done
There is an adjusting screw on the right side of the machine head. Follow the motor bracket to the machine head and loosen that big old screw or bolt which will raise or lower the motor giving you slack to remove or replace the belt.
feel free for further queries

I had the same problem with cleaning and jamming and this might sound silly, but when you're in the middle of trying to fix it remember to look up see that it is threaded up top. I did everything the pp's suggested and when they didn't work I realized the top thread wasn't still threaded around the tension thing anymore. After rethreading it, it worked fine. But I DID reduce the amount of thread on the bobbin at the same time as Drazil suggested.
