This problem occurs because the machine is not pulling the top thread upward out of the bobbin area and all the threads then jam under the fabric. The problem looks like it's in the bottom of the machine, (and there is a slight chance it is) but 99% of the time it's caused from the top of the machine.

1. Remove the thread completely from the top.
2. Lift the presser foot into the "up"position. (When the foot is up, the top tension discs loosen and your thread can get deep into the unit where it belongs.)
3. Great time for a new needle, flat side to the back and make sure it's up in all the way.
4.When threading the machine I always think of, "Down, Up and Down".
You come from the top, down to the covered spring (called a check spring), then back up to the take up lever (the lever that moves up and down rapidly as the machine sews), then back down to the needle.
5. After the needle is threaded, lower the lever in the back so the foot goes down but don't put it on the thread. Hold the thread in your left hand, directly from the needle eye at this point, pull the thread towards the rear of the machine. You should feel a tightness in the thread, almost fighting you. The needle will bow slightly before the thread comes through the machine. If you have no resistance you've found your problem. (Tension number 4 or 5 should work)
6. Remove the bobbin, check the edges, are they smooth? Does the thread wound on the bobbin look balanced? It has to be for proper delivery. Make sure you are using the proper bobbin. There is a singer bobbin that looks like the one your machine takes but it will not work correctly. If you have different clear plastic bobbins and they are different in height, you machine takes the taller one. Drop in a good bobbin and thread the bobbin tension, make sure to "click" the thread in there good. Pick up the bobbin thread, through the hole of the needle plate by taking a stitch by turning the handwheel and gently pull on the bobbin thread to feel it's tension. It should be a fraction of the top "feel" that the needle thread had, they are never even. You should feel slight resistance from the bobbin thread, not tight. Try a test stitch and see what happens, hopefully your sewing!

Take off the needle plate. There is a bracket near the front right area of the bobbin case. It is the position bracket that supports the case. First smooth the case of any rough edges, the put it in place and loosen the screw of the position bracket and align it in an area that will keep the case from spinning. There should be about 0.5mm of distance available when you use your finger and push the case from left to right, between the case and the bracket. Remember that the thread flows through this area, the case is held in place by the bracket but not tightly.

Kenmore 19233 sewing machine. Then handwheel is broken, spins freely. Machine works perfectly otherwise. How do I remove the handwheel and replace it.

If the drive belt is not off or broken, then check hand-wheel setting. On some models the hand wheel can be pushed in (to engage) and pulled out (to disengage) for using bobbin winder. If it is disengaged the hand-wheel will spin freely. On older models there is a smaller wheel that has to be hand tightened in order to engage rest of machine. Hope this helps.

How does the thread on top of machine stay put

The steel piece on top should extend upward. You probably have 2, one for sewing and one for bobbin winding. It may be that the steel piece is not fully extended upward or has broken.

Hope this helps.
