Question about Kenmore 11206 / 11306 / 11506 / 11606
I got a Kenmore Mini Ultra for Christmas last year, this is the first time I'm using it. It started sewing fine then it froze, the handwheel won't turn, I took out the bobber and looked inside, I don't see any tread caught. I used it for 20 seconds.
NEVER force a newer model machine. Everything inside is plastic and WILL break. Remove the needle, bobbin, bobbin case, and unthread the machine. See if the handwheel turns. If it doesn't, several things could be wrong. The lower end machines won't have belts to come off, they will be fully gear driven. If it is a better machine, it might be a belt problem. Small pieces of thread could be stuck in a gear mesh somewhere. A gear could be broken. It is possible for a gear to break on the first use.
