all machines thread the same. TTN tension,take up, needle.
Beginning with the spool, guide the thread through the thread guides to the tension assembly. Pull the thread through the tension assembly and test it to make sure the tension is working correctly.
(To do this test,adjust your tension setting to normal or medium or 5 or something in the middle. Raise the presser foot and pull the thread through the tension. It should pull easily!! Lower the presser foot and pull the thread. It should pull noticeably harder.) If it passes this test, continue up through the take up lever,then down through the thread guides to the needle. Make sure your needle is fully inserted and turned the correct way.( If you load your bobbin case from the left side,the needle rule is normally FLAT to the RIGHT is RIGHT. There are some exceptions. If you have a newer style drop in bobbin or your bobbin case loads in the front then the rule is FLAT to the BACK.

To wind the bobbin, guide the thread around the thread guide on
the left top of your machine, then to the bobbin winder. Wind the thread around the bobbin several times, place the bobbin on top of the bobbin winder, push it against the wheel and press the foot pedal. It should stop winding when the bobbin is full or you take your foot off the control

SOURCE: 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

How do I thread a kenmore sewing machine model #117812


For the top thread, make sure that the needle is fully up. With the spool on the spool pin. Bring the thread in front and under the first hook and then under and behind hook two. Bring the thread down and under the third point below the spring eyelet. Bring the thread up until hooks into that spring eyelet. Continue up and get the thread into the hole in the take-lever from back to front. Bring the thread down to the needle clamp thread guide and hook it into the guide. Finally pass the thread through the needle from left to right.

The manual for the 117.812 is the same as that for the 117.552. Manuals Lib has this manual here: https://www.manualslib.com/manual/1050640/Kenmore-117-552.html . The threading diagram and instructions are on page 4, https://www.manualslib.com/manual/1050640/Kenmore-117-552.html?page=4#manual . See the later pages for winding and setting up the bobbin. The pictures may help more than the verbal description.

I hope this helps.

How to thread


Can't help you without a brand and model of machine. If you have a manual, consult the threading instructions. In addition, it helps to raise the presser foot before threading the upper thread as this action releases the tension guides in order for the thread to seat properly. Otherwise, search the internet to see if there is a manual to download.

Threading the Bobbin


Place the bobbin in the bobbin case making sure the thread feeds clockwise. Draw the thread through the slot on the case. Continue to draw under the tension spring and through the opening pulling out about 6" of thread. Hold the latch open, position the bobbin case into the suttle and release the latch. THe case should lock into place when the latch is relaeased.

With the top thread, hold out about 5" to the left. While holding on tot he top thread, turn the hand wheel toward you and you should see a loop at the feed dogs. grab the two thread and bring them behind the presser foot.
