Question about Kenmore Sewing Machines
If your machine has a front loading bobbin case, remove it and then remove the shuttle which the bobbin case fits into. most often there is thread or lint caught in the shuttle race preventing the shuttle from turning (it only needs a tiny piece of thread).
if you have done this check any gear meshing to ensure no lint or thread has been caught in the teeth of the gears.
if the machine sews ok and locks up after a few stitches then it sounds like needle threading or tension causing the problem. re-thread the machine and ensure there is sufficient needle thread tension to bend the needle a little when presser foot is down and thread is pulled through needle.
