Question about Kenmore Drop-In Bobbin 505S-21BH Mechanical Sewing Machine
I can't seem to fix the bobbin jam
SOURCE: bobbin thread jam
You can remove the thread jam by moving the hand wheel back and forth. Remove the bobbin case and bobbin.Unthread and remove the needle.Rock the handwheel back and forth. Don't be rough but you will need to exert a little pressure to get this thread to come out. What you are doing is cutting the thread which is locked inside the hook race.

It sounds like it is not threaded properly through the tension disc. Try rethreading and make sure the presser foot lever is in the up position. If it continues, once threaded and with the presser foot down, pull on the thread through the needle. If it has resistance, it is threaded properly. If it pulls easily then there is a problem in the tension area. Check to see if there are peices of thread broke off in between the tension disc.

1. Put in a new needle
2. Take the thread off the top of your machine and rethread the top. Make sure the presser foot is in the up positon when you thread your machine because that is when the tensions discs separate so your thread gets deep into the unit where it belongs. The tension dial (the small dial) should be on 4 or 5.
3. Inspect the bobbin area. Do you see the thread laying across the bobbin itself? You should alway see the thread laying across the bobbin in that model. That tells you that you've threaded the bobbin case correctly. The thread must be pulled into the metal guide of the bobbin case, from approximately the 6 O'clock postion to the 7 O'clock position.
4Never turn the handwheel away from you with the 415. You'll notice that the take up lever is of a more open design. If you turn the handwheel backwards (away from you) the thread will jump out of the lever and jamming will result.
