Question about Kenmore Sewing Machines
Our sewing machine which has been used 'off and on' for a number of years has suddenly begin to give trouble. It began with several broken needles and then with the machine not sewing at all. I have tried many different types of needles -- doesn't make any difference. I thread the thing and it doesn't make one single stitch. After pushing itself through the fabric once or twice the needle comes up 'empty' (without having picked up the cotton from the bobbin). I've looked at things closely but I just can't figure out what/where the problem(s) might be. As I said, this sewing machine has served us well over the years 'without a hitch' -- now all has changed (with this sewing machine!) Do you know of anything I can try? Thank you!

SOURCE: Not picking up the Bobbin thread
I cleaned the machine good with canned air, oiled it. I took out the bobbin case and cleaned it good also. I then noticed the tension screw on the bobbin case was loose, tightened it and the problem was fixed.

The tread only breaks in the needle. what can i do . i don't get to sew anything . I tread the needle and get everything ready and start the machine and as quickly as that the tread is broken and the machine has not sewn at all.

if your machine's needle threads from front to back, make sure that the flat part of the needle shank points to the rear of the machine. If it threads from left to right, the flat side should face right, etc.
