The clutch will not release in order to fill a bobbin. Past owners have been directed to remove the clutch knob. How do you remove the clutch knob?


Hi Victor, In general all sewing machines have the same basic design. So, if you take hold of the big 'wheel' on the right of the machine with your left hand and take hold of the knob in the centre of the wheel with your right hand you should be able to turn the knob anticlockwise. That's the cluch disengaged. You should now be able to fill a bobbin. Don't forget to engage the clutch before sewing (just reverse the process).

The clutch on my Kenmore model 1249 wont tighten. Is there any way I can fix it myself?


Oh,Oh, time for a professional overhaul. Sounds like a tooth may be broken or worn. (Plastic probably) not like the old machines with metal teeth.

Clutch knob on kenmore 15814001 sewing machine will not tighten


Have you removed the inner wheel? If so you probably have put clutch spring in backwards. The washer like piece has to bent fingers that appear to fit in the center of the shaft. These should be facing out toward the tightening nut. Turn washer around and voila good to go.

Model 1400 manual


there should be a small stop screw to prevent the release knob undoing completely. Did you remove the knob and hand wheel?
If so remove it again and ensure the drive belt is fitted on the hand wheel, there is a friction washer that needs to be located in the slots on the shaft before the knob is refitted.

Kenmore sewing machine Model 1602: I was filling a bobbin and when I went back to sewing - the needle won't go up and down. Motor runs when I press on the footpad. It is as if the clutch is stuck as well...


Sound like you need to take it out of bobbin winder mode. Suggest looking for a way to engage the clutch. Turn the center knob on hand wheel and or move the bobbin winding post back to postion.

The center hand wheel should move about 1/3 turn towards you to look it back into place.

The clutch is not engaging (it seems).. The wheel doesn't turn which in turn means it is not stitching. Haven''t used it in 6 months, but it was fine the last time I used it.


This may seem like a stupid answer but did you push in the knob. If you were winding bobbins last time you used it you may have forgotten to re-engage the clutch.

Usually when you pull the clutch knob out it disengages the sewing machine needle shaft. At least, that is how my 2 Kenmore's work.

On my Kenmore I had to pull the knob out to release the clutch, then push it bak in. I don't know if that is the same for you. You can try it, if it doesn;t move, it was worth a try. You could just take to Sears, sewing machine department and ask the salesperson what to do, they should help you for free, our Sears is pretty good about such matters.

Clutch Release Problem


You will need to remove the clutch release knob and the 3 eared positioner (the clutch) under that knob. Reposition the clutch on the shaft, put the knob back on and see if you can put the screw back in the hole. If it hits something, remove the knob, remove the clutch and turn it 180 degrees. This will reposition the ears. Put the clutch back on the shaft, put the knob back on the shaft and screw the screw into the hole. Test to be sure the knob releases the hand wheel to wind the bobbin.Be sure the thread is under the thread guide when you wind the bobbin and that there is a slight tension on it.

Kenmore sewing machine 15008100 not working


Was all well and working before you did work on the bobbin area ?

Ensure the machine is unplugged & bobbin winder is set OFF as there is a clutch preventing the needle arm to operate when bobbin winding......remove the needle.

If you take the bobbin and hook out, can you manually rotate the handwheel forwards ?

If yes, this suggests they are not inserted quite right, or the timing is out of adjustment.

Can you rotate the handwheel backwards ? On some machines the clutch allows for reverse travel freely, but only around the 15 degrees you mention forward when the top cover is off.....there may be a broken or dislodged spring unit/armature inside top near the handwheel and bobbin winder assembly that is acting as though the top cover is open (a safety feature)....generally towards the rear of machine and acting like a log thrown into a gear.

This may help straight away, or only just start to unravell the cause....

If you want any more help with this, just post back here, or, drop a line through the "Contact Us" page at www.bargainbox.com.au
