SOURCE: kenmore sewing machine (new) - bobbin threading

If the bobbin winder is not turning after pushing it on it will either be that there is some oily rsidue on the winder rubber, the winder rubber is worn on one side although if the machine is new it is very unlikely, the winder rubber is not connecting with the balance wheel which means an adjustment and that will mean getting inside the machine which is not easy.

When I have run into similar problems with my older Singer, it's because there is a bit of thread caught somewhere in the bobbin mechanism that doesn't allow the shuttle to run freely. Take the bobbin assembly apart and use a bright light to see if you see any bits of thread in there.

Good luck and let me know if this works!

SOURCE: can't put thread on bobbin

I cannot tell what your problem is. The winder isn't working? The bobbin won't hold the thread so it will fill?

There are threading guides at the sewusa website that may be helpful as they include written instructions along with graphics.

SOURCE: How to put thread on a bobbin of a Kenmore Sewing

I could not find a guide for this model.

If there is a knob in the center of the handwheel, it needs to be loosened.

Take the thread from the spool around the first guide and then to toward the bobbin winder.

Run the end of the thread through an opening in the side of the bobbin spool.

Hold onto about 5" of the thread and place the bobbin spool onto the bobbin pin and move the pin to the right or the winding wheel to the left (depends on how your machine is designed).

Holding onto the thread end, press the power pedal.

When you cannot hold onto the thread any longer, stop the machine and cut off the thread end and then continue to wind the bobbin.

Disengage the bobbin winder (move the pin or the wheel back into place) and tighten the knob in the center of the handwheel before sewing.

SOURCE: unable to get the bobin thread to the top of

Hi. The most likely reason for this is that the needle is not inserted correctly. There is a flat side to the needle shank that has to be inserted facing a particular way--to the right as you're facing the machine, or to the left, or to the rear, facing away from you. Most modern machines need the flat side of the needle facing to the rear, so try that first. Also make sure the needle isn't bent or dull.
Hope this helps!

I just recieved an older kenmore 24 stitch sewing machine and it has no manual with it , my problem is why wont the machine pick up the bobbin thread ?


You can probably find a manual from Sears. They carry a ton of Kenmore user manuals.

First thing to always try--insert a brand new needle!

Bobbins do usually have a specific way of being loaded. Most machines require the bobbin to be inserted into the bobbin case so when you pull on the thread tail, the bobbin turns clockwise (this is when you are looking at the backside of the bobbin case - at the bobbin). Also, be sure to thread the bobbin thread through the bobbin tension mechanism.

Tip how to put bobbin into the bobbin driver on sewing machine

If the upper thread is not picking up the bobbin thread, it is usually because there is a timing issue (means the needle is arriving at the bobbin at the wrong time to connect with the bobbin thread).

Sewing machine won pick up bobbin thread hook timing fix

P.S.--if your Kenmore is non-computerized (ie, mechanical) be sure to oil using fresh, good quality sewing machine oil or Tri-Flow Synthetic Oil (NOT cooking oil, 3-in-1, WD-40, or old stinky brown stuff that may be in the accessory box). Apply a couple of drops every place metal rubs on metal (while hand-rotating the handwheel). Do NOT oil nylon, rubber, or belts!

I have a Kenmore 385.1764180 and cannot get the thread in the bobbin to catch onto the thread in the needle and pull through ready for sewing. Have tried everything but it still will not work.


Hi! When the top thread doesn't pick up the bobbin thread, it nearly always is because the needle isn't in correctly. Take your needle out, and put it back, making sure the flat side of the needle shank is facing away from you. A bent needle can also cause problems with picking up the bobbin thread. Hope this helps!
Happy Sewing!

Bobbin pole for putting more thread on wont spin fast tried to reload bobbin but machine wont spin bobbin fast enough to put thread on it


most likely you do not have the correct bobbin that fits on the bobbin pole.

on the bottom of the pole there may be a small knub in which the small hole on the bobbin should slip onto this holds the bobbin in palce, (if the wrong bobbin is used and if could be just a slight difference in the boobin ) the pole will not spin correctly and not fill the bobbins,

I have seen different bobbins with the same machine with such a slight difference that the owner did not realize it.

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 .

Bobbin won't turn


take the top of the machine cover off by removing screws on top plastic cover. Make sure that the rubber ring on the wheel that turns the bobbin threader is making contact with the belt from the flywheel in the back. You may need to see if it turns freely. If not take it off and lubricate it until it frees up and then replace it and the cover.
