Question about Kenmore Sewing Machines
I have it all set-up and nothing happens, just the winding sound but the bobbin and thread do not move.
The winding sound is the rubber O-ring against the spinning pulley (back
of hand wheel) - do not let this continue, it will wear out the O-ring.
I had the same problem and I found the shaft bushing of the winder dry and needed lubed. Use oil or spray lithium grease and it should work fine. Spin the bobbin shaft by hand (not the hand wheel) to get it freed up after oiling.
You can oil from the top and should take off the side case to clean the excess oil from the O-ring. The shaft bushing is a tight fit and any dry oil will get sticky and prevent winding.
