Question about Kenmore Drop-In Bobbin 16231 Mechanical Sewing Machine
It works if I don't push the needle all the way in. Tried different needles but same issue. If I push needle all the way in it worn pick up bobbin thread.
Needle won't pick up thread I think the timing is off, how do I retime it?

Inside where the bobbin is there's a double hook which rotates in sync with the needle. with the needle down all the way, this hook grabs the upper thread and creates the loop for the stitch. sounds like the needle is too long. check your operating manual for replacement.
