Question about Kenmore 15516 Mechanical Sewing Machine
Oiled machine, filled bobbins on my Kenmore zig zag sewing machine. Can't tighten clutch. When moved forward, needle moves up and down instead of moving with the hand wheel, causing the machine not to sew.
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.
