Question about Kenmore 15208 Mechanical Sewing Machine
When I first start sewing, the needle will drop and pull up the bobbin thread, but on its second plunge, it starts to get tangled up not around the bobbin case, but around the half-crescent piece piece that holds the bobbin case in place (newb at sewing, sorry). After one or two plunges, it gets caught up too tight and my thread snaps. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
If you have the manual take a better look at how to put the bobbin in the case,
sounds like you are putting it in wrong,
make sure you put the bobbin in with the thread com-ming off the bobbin in the right direction (left or right) if not put in the right way you will get what you are saying
ALSO: bring up the bobbin thread your self by turning the hand wheal and bring the thread a few inches to the back of the needle and hold when starting to sew the first 2-5 stitches.
when you do not hold the thread the machine will pull the thread in the bobbin area and cause problems.
you will get use to holding and it will get easier.
hope this helps
