How to thread a bobbin,sears Kenmore model 158.17031


Place both the bobbin case and the bobbin on the table in front of you. Have the open side of the bobbin case facing up and the bobbin with the thread of the bobbin unwinding clockwise. Drop the bobbin in the bobbin case. Pull the thread tail up through the notch in the bobbin case and then to the left under the thin metal plate until the thread appears to be coming out through the hole in the side of the bobbin case. (When you pull the bobbin thread, the bobbin should turn clockwise in the bobbin case.)

Do you mean the lower bobbin spool? It should not matter too much so long as it fits. Try it on a scrap of material and see how it goes.

How to adjust tha tension on the bobbin on kenmore model 158.13180


Hello Sharon, Remove the bobbin case from your machine. On the side of the bobbin case you will find a single slotted screw. If you want more bobbin tension, turn that screw to the right. ( clockwise ) If you want less bobbin tension, turn that screw to the left. ( counter clockwise ) When you change the bobbin tension, you may also need to adjust your needle tension to match.

I need instructions threading the bobbin on Kenmore sewing machi


I believe it is a seperate bobbin case, hold the open part of the bobbin case towards you with the finger at the top, hold the bobbin case by the latch, drop the bobbin in so it turns anti clockwise and pull the thread through the slot about 6 inches, keep hold of the latch, and pop the bobbin case in

Thread is not coming up from the bobbin assembly on sewing machine. Stitches don't show any thread coming from the bottom.


YOUR PROBLEM IS THE TIMMING IN YOUR MACHINE. THIS HAPPENDS WHEN YOU FORCE YOUR MACHINE TO SEW SOMETHING OR WHEN YOUR NEEDLE BRAKES. nOT SURE HOW TO FIX IT. I HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM. USUALLY A TUNE-UP WOULD DO IT. IT'S ABOUT $99 TO $130.00 TO DO A TUNE UP. i WISH I KNEW HOW TO FIX IT MYSELF.
