SOURCE: howto thread a twin needle on Janome 6019

Hi there. If you have an acessory kit with your machine, there should be a plain spindle with a smaller bottom on it. There should also be a small hole on the top or back of your machine where your thread goes.. And yes you can thread both strands of thread thru the same areas till the needle.

SOURCE: bobbin thread won't catch with needle thread

check that the needle is in the right way round i.e. with cut out on the needle facing into the machine. if this is fine then check that as the needle comes back up from the lowest point that it goes to, that the point on the bobbin case passes just above the hole in the needle, i.e. in the middle of the cut out.(if not it needs re timing) if threaded a small loop should appear at this point for the bottom bobbin to catch if not slacken the top thread and try again.

I have a singer futura XL580 and the thread guide either flew off or broke off. I thought I bought the right replacement part no. 086046 but can not seem to figure it out


That is because the thread guide is underneath the needle clamp, and BOTH must be removed and replaced together as a unit. In addition, the wire is held by a tiny screw in the back of the shaft. That screw also serves as the stop for the end of the needle. Take a look at the shaft right above the needle, and you'll see what looks like a grey bar--that is the screw. It's difficult to access on the back, but must be loosened first -- JUST ONE OR TWO TURNS -- to remove the wire. Then, take off the needle clamp and wire as one unit.

Insert the replacement guide inside and at the back of the needle clamp, with the hook part sticking out of the clamp. You'll see that there's an indentation in the clamp to hold it. Insert the guide and clamp as one unit, then hook the wire around the screw and tighten.

FYI - If you accidentally remove the screw (which only turns about three or four times) and drop it as I did, you don't really need it to hold the wire guide, BUT you still need a needle stop. I just inserted a toothpick when I changed needles until I could get a replacement.

The above sounds relatively easy, but you'll probably have to do some manipulating, especially the first time, and if you're like me, possibly some cussing -- but it WILL fit.

How do I thread a kenmore sewing machine model #117812


For the top thread, make sure that the needle is fully up. With the spool on the spool pin. Bring the thread in front and under the first hook and then under and behind hook two. Bring the thread down and under the third point below the spring eyelet. Bring the thread up until hooks into that spring eyelet. Continue up and get the thread into the hole in the take-lever from back to front. Bring the thread down to the needle clamp thread guide and hook it into the guide. Finally pass the thread through the needle from left to right.

The manual for the 117.812 is the same as that for the 117.552. Manuals Lib has this manual here: https://www.manualslib.com/manual/1050640/Kenmore-117-552.html . The threading diagram and instructions are on page 4, https://www.manualslib.com/manual/1050640/Kenmore-117-552.html?page=4#manual . See the later pages for winding and setting up the bobbin. The pictures may help more than the verbal description.

I hope this helps.

How do I thread the bobbin in a Kenmore 14 stitch machine


Does the top of the machine lift up ? if so, there may be a diagram under there. And you can get a manual from Sears too, which will have the directions in it. But it's not hard to thread, has a very basic threading system. Put thread on spool holder, with thread coming out from the front of the spool. Pull out a foot or so of thread, slip it into the guide at rear of machine, where the two main sections appear to join together, right at the top of the machine. Then pull thread forward from the guide, across the top of the machine. There may be a guide at the front edge of the machine top, if so, slip thread into that guide. It's been awhile so I can't recall if there is or isn't a front guide at the top. But then you go down the front of the machine, where you slip thread underneath the bottom of the section with the two vertical slots. Lift thread upward and gently over to the left 'til it catches in the hook. You can move the handwheel to move the hook if need be, it can be hard to catch if it's right at the top of it's travel. Once thread is in the hook, take the thread down to toward the needle. There's a little guide slot above the needle that you slip the thread into, just a simple wire hook mounted sideways. Slip thread into it from the open, left side, toward the right 'til it's caught, then pull down to thread needle, from the front to the back.

How to guide thread on kenmore 158.13201


Most machines are very, very similar, therefore, no matter what brand you own, there's basically the same steps to follow: 1. Place good quality thread on spool pin, back right-hand side of machine and raise presser foot UP. 2.Pull thread taut from spool.Make sure silver take-up lever raised to highest position. 3. Guide thread under first tension disc. 4. Hold thread taut, guiding thread into next tension disc. When you get to the take-up leaver (silver lever on right side of machine that has a hole at the top--hold thread taut guiding it from right to left through hole, bring thread down left side of it, and put thread into tension bracket, hold thread taut! Put thread in back of needle into another small bracket and pull thread towards you. Time to thread needle: put thread front to back into eye of needle. Put thread under presser foot and pull under the center of it a good 6".Lower presser foot on scrap of fabric to test. Turn hand wheel toward you to lower needle into fabric scrap. Use foot (or knee depending on machine) to start machine. Do not pull or push fabric but gently guide it. Jimmy Place fabric scrap under needle. Low

Top thread goes for awhile and then breaks. Alsoo


Try a fresh needle and be sure the flat side of the needle shaft is facing the back of the machine.

Thread the machine with the presser foot in the up position.

Make sure the bobbin is inserted into the case so the thread is feeding from the bobbin spool in the correct direction and through the proper guides.

Hold onto the thread end at the needle and hand-walk the needle down into the needle plate and back up, bringing the bobbin thread with it.

Take both thread ends under the presser foot and to the back of the machine.

I have a Bernette 50 sewing machine....i was sewing velcro....the screw assembly on the post where the needle goes into fell off and the thread guide fell off it....i can't tell if it is broken or just...


That can be tricky. Some thread guides and needle clamps have to be assembled and then slid up into place with the needle screw holding it together. Some have a set screw to hold it.

Sears Kenmore 1168280 (Old machine not used much)


Untangle any mess under and around the needleplate very gingerly trimming threads as you go if necessary....remove and clear.

Undo the needle clamp and remove the remains of the needle.

Open the door for the bobbin and bobbin case and undo the clips holding the hook in place......don't force anything, just ease any tangle loose slowly.

You may want to take a photo of how it goes back together if unfamiliar, or lay the bits out sensibly, so you can replace easily later.

Inside the bobbin/hook area is the most likely region for thread jamming the motion of everything, so make sure all is clear and clean, then.......

Without replacing the bobbin or hook, test the handwheel after cleaning before re-assembly.

You may also want to check the take-up crank for thread jams........the small arm in the top cover that moves up/down to "take-up" the top thread has a cam attached to the top shaft and often tangles thread around the shaft, open the L side cover to access.......remove thread by unwinding handwheel manually ....again be patient and careful not to break threads.

Best Wishes

Instructions for theading a Sears Kenmore Sewing machine model 158.14000


all machines thread the same. TTN tension,take up, needle.
Beginning with the spool, guide the thread through the thread guides to the tension assembly. Pull the thread through the tension assembly and test it to make sure the tension is working correctly.
(To do this test,adjust your tension setting to normal or medium or 5 or something in the middle. Raise the presser foot and pull the thread through the tension. It should pull easily!! Lower the presser foot and pull the thread. It should pull noticeably harder.) If it passes this test, continue up through the take up lever,then down through the thread guides to the needle. Make sure your needle is fully inserted and turned the correct way.( If you load your bobbin case from the left side,the needle rule is normally FLAT to the RIGHT is RIGHT. There are some exceptions. If you have a newer style drop in bobbin or your bobbin case loads in the front then the rule is FLAT to the BACK.

To wind the bobbin, guide the thread around the thread guide on
the left top of your machine, then to the bobbin winder. Wind the thread around the bobbin several times, place the bobbin on top of the bobbin winder, push it against the wheel and press the foot pedal. It should stop winding when the bobbin is full or you take your foot off the control
