Question about Kenmore Sewing Machines

1 Answer

Why won't my Kenmore Ultra 6 stitch sewing machine #13401 wind the bobbins when trying to refill them. What can I do, I really need my machine to work right now.

I have done everything I can think of, loosened the screw on the guard, use WD-40 trying to loosen the peg and make it turn but nothing works. Yes I did loosen the knob to release the stitch wheel.

If it turns easily, then I would replace the bobbin tire.

Digital display shows bobbin wind. Bobbin wind spindle moves slightly. When depress foot pedal, stitches for only a minute- stops. Cannot select any stitches as menu display remains on bobbin wind.


try putting a bobbin on to wind and then take off again, make sure when you do that the bobbin holder clicks back into the sewing position not the winding, you might need to give it a little push in the right direction then see if it sews ok for you. if not may need a service call.

Haven't used my Kenmore sewing machine #385.19153 for a long time. The display shows "bobbin winding" I don't remember how to change for simple straight line stich


Try pushing the bobbin winder spindle to the left. It's on the top of the machine to the right of the spool. When this spindle is pushed to the right, the sewing machine is ready to wind a bobbin. Once the spindle is to the left, you should be able to select a straight stitch (stitches 10-12), set the stitch length and check the thread tension.

See https://www.manualslib.com/manual/505279/Kenmore-385-19153.html?page=44#manual for a picture.

I hope this helps.

How do I refill the thread bobbin on a Kenmore sewing maching,,model 148-19371


You can try a couple of YouTube videos:

Loading thread on the bobbin old Kenmore sewing machine
(do not wind the bobbin as fast as he does as it tends to stretch the thread and also could cause the spool to fly off the machine!)

My Kenmore Mini Ultra sewing machine won't sew the button stitch. I have followed the instructions on the manual but still the thread does not get sewn onto the fabric. Simple straight stitches are ok


it's possible that there could be a problem with the gear or cam that does the button hole stitch

try a different needle--one for the fabric being sewed
try a different bobbin --make sure the bobbin is not warped or damaged
try different thread-- use EVERY thread guide

make sure the bobbin is wound correctly--inserted correctly in to the bobbin case--and turned the right way.

Why is my machine skipping stitches


this is caused by uneven winding of the bobbin, sometimes the spool of thread winds unevenly when it travels up and down the spool. the best solution i have found is to use small spools of thread when winding the bobbins

Bobbin Winding message appears when machine is turned on


Is the bobbin winder holder clicked over to the right like you are trying to wind a bobbin? If so, and you are not trying to wind a new bobbin, click it over to the left.
