Question about Brother Sewing Machines

Clutch stuck Clutch is stuck and I can't turn towards me to use the "wind-bobbin" feature. There is a hole where it looks like a screw should be on the clutch, but no screw, so I don't know how to take it off. Any ideas?

Could be the release knob has simply been wound on too tightly. Normally the missing screw is there to prevent the knob being wound out too far and nothing to do with free motion of the balance wheel

SOURCE: Clutch Release Problem

You will need to remove the clutch release knob and the 3 eared positioner (the clutch) under that knob. Reposition the clutch on the shaft, put the knob back on and see if you can put the screw back in the hole. If it hits something, remove the knob, remove the clutch and turn it 180 degrees. This will reposition the ears. Put the clutch back on the shaft, put the knob back on the shaft and screw the screw into the hole. Test to be sure the knob releases the hand wheel to wind the bobbin.Be sure the thread is under the thread guide when you wind the bobbin and that there is a slight tension on it.

SOURCE: On my Kenmore 15250 sewing

On my Kenmore I had to pull the knob out to release the clutch, then push it bak in. I don't know if that is the same for you. You can try it, if it doesn;t move, it was worth a try. You could just take to Sears, sewing machine department and ask the salesperson what to do, they should help you for free, our Sears is pretty good about such matters.

SOURCE: the clutch on my kenmore 1310 won't disengage when

May be one of two problems.
1st you should be able to turn the nob about 90-120 degrees. Not a full turn.
If this is not the case follow these steps.

Turn the small screw on the nob about 2 full turns
Carefully turn the nob all the way off.
Inside there is a round part with 3 small prongs on it.
spin that 180 degree and put everything back together.

2nd your clutch is gummed up
You will need to remove the handwheel and motor belt for this.
Remove the nob, small 3 prong part, and motor belt.
Pull the handwheel off (it may be stuck on and hard to get off).
Clean inside the handwheel and the machine main shaft.
Lubricate the Main shaft and put handwheel back on.
When you put the small 3 prong part back on it needs to have the prongs sticking away from the machine.

Hope this fixes your machine

The flywheel will not turn on my elna su air electric machine


do you mean that you can't unlock the inner wheel on the flywheel to disengage the clutch? Grasp the outer flywheel and using a plastic mat for removing jar lids, get a good grip on the inner clutch wheel, then turn it towards you.

Both dials on the right spin when I try to sew. I try to tighten them, but they won't stay tight and the needle won't move (kind of stuck in bobbin winding mode)


First make sure that the bobbin winder clutch (handwheel) is tight. DO this buy spining the small ring all the way clockwise. Then make sure that the butonhole dial is set to top dead center. then Also check to make sure that the the top stitch slector is set to straight stitch.

If any of this was not the problem then look at the botom of the nobs there should be a small hole. in that hole there is a set screw that may have come loose. you will need ether a small flat head screwdriver, or a alen rench 1.5 or 2.0 mm. let me know if this did not fix it.

Kenmore sewing machine Model 1602: I was filling a bobbin and when I went back to sewing - the needle won't go up and down. Motor runs when I press on the footpad. It is as if the clutch is stuck as well...


Sound like you need to take it out of bobbin winder mode. Suggest looking for a way to engage the clutch. Turn the center knob on hand wheel and or move the bobbin winding post back to postion.

The center hand wheel should move about 1/3 turn towards you to look it back into place.

I was given an Elna Supermatic 722010 and am not sure how to wind the bobbin.


A link to a supermatic manual is here
http://www.arizonaexpressionz.com/elna_instruction_manuals/Supermatic.pdf - I suggest you download this and print it out as this machine is over 50 years old now and manuals are scarce.

Disengage the clutch by holding the outside of the fly wheel and turning the inner knob of the wheel towards you.
You need to take the thread from the spool across to an eyelet on top left, then back to the bobbin winder, up through a hole in the top of the bobbin and hold the thread tail. Flick the bobbin across against the stopper. Now press the presser foot or knee control to start the motor. Hold the thread tail until youve got coverage across the bobbin enough to hold the start, then stop winding and cut the thread tail with scissors. Now continue winding but put the handle of your scissors on top of the thread spool to stop it bouncing and ensure your thread winds smoothly and under tension.

Watch the bobbin fill and give the thread a nudge to fill top and bottom as well as the middle evenly, you want a nice even wind. Fill to 3/4 and stop, flick bobbin back off the stopper, then cut the thread. Remember to re-engage the clutch by reversing the first step.

This is a lovely heirloom Elna machine - you need to thread the bobbin as the manual describes and get the thread into the tension spring. Please read the manual information on oiling too, this machine needs to be oiled on the red spot locations every time you use it according to the manual, use good quality clear sewing machine oil for this purpose.

Kenmore sewing machine 15008100 not working


Was all well and working before you did work on the bobbin area ?

Ensure the machine is unplugged & bobbin winder is set OFF as there is a clutch preventing the needle arm to operate when bobbin winding......remove the needle.

If you take the bobbin and hook out, can you manually rotate the handwheel forwards ?

If yes, this suggests they are not inserted quite right, or the timing is out of adjustment.

Can you rotate the handwheel backwards ? On some machines the clutch allows for reverse travel freely, but only around the 15 degrees you mention forward when the top cover is off.....there may be a broken or dislodged spring unit/armature inside top near the handwheel and bobbin winder assembly that is acting as though the top cover is open (a safety feature)....generally towards the rear of machine and acting like a log thrown into a gear.

This may help straight away, or only just start to unravell the cause....

If you want any more help with this, just post back here, or, drop a line through the "Contact Us" page at www.bargainbox.com.au

Kenmore Sewing Machine model # c877.15


I have a Kenmore as well ,I hope that this will work for you ,too bad that I don't live close to you otherwise I would give a hand. This is the way I fill the bobbin on mine. Mine is located on the top right ,I put the thread into the bobbin hole leaving a small piece of thread hanging for me to hold when I begin the winding, I pull the wheele out to stop the needle from moving while winding, when I am done just push it back in .I run the thread from the spool into the top left it looks like a U turn with a screw go around that without winding just pull it into the bobbin hole. press the foot control and it will begin winding .
