Question about Kenmore Sewing Machines
Try to sew but thread bunches up the casing pops up
I think you are threading the top of the machine incorrectly. Make sure that what I'm saying is correct, use two color threads to sew with- and you will see that it is in fact the top thread that is bunching.
This might be a tension problem. Could be the bobbin is not threaded in the case right. First, check the threading of the bobbin and then check the stitch.
Next, adjust the tension on the bobbin case. There is usually a small screw on the case that can be tightened or loosened. I think you may need to adjust it a bit or adjust the top tension knob, just a small bit at a time. It the top does not change the stitch, then go to the bobbin case and adjust the screw to tighten the stitch a little bit more.
Please do rate this solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.
