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

I have a Kenmore Sewing Machine 12912 and it is jammed as well. I cannot turn the knob at all and have taken the bobbin out, oiled the machine and nothing helps. Did you get your machine to finally work? I borrowed this one and need to return it.

MY THREAD GETTING WRAPPED AROUND THE BOBBING WHEN TRYING TO SEW THE TOP THREAD WRAPPING AROUND THE BOBBING CASE AND DRAGGING CAUSING THE TOP THREAD TO BREAK ?


It sounds like the lower shuttle is out of place. You should be able to take out the bobbin case and unlatch the shuttle. It will probably be in 2 pieces. Clean out the dust behind it and replace the shuttle pieces. You may have to fiddle with it a little to get them back in place. Then you can test it by manually turning the wheel. Make sure the bobbin is placed into the bobbin case and that the bobbin turns in the direction that you pull the thread.

Good luck.

How to put string into the shuttle


I take it you have a shuttle with a bobbin inside. Remove bobbin and attach it to the bobbin winder by the balance wheel, wind bobbin and while holding shuttle point downwards drop the into the shuttle, pull thread down to the bottom of side slot and then straight up under tension spring, load shuttle back into machine pointed towards you tension screw up

My Kenmore Sewing Machine's needle is locked down


best suggestion try inserting new needle. cotton up the top suggests needle problem or incorrect top thread tension, this would effect the feed dog. Because thread is black and most recent use was with pink, the problem thread was already there perhaps in cavity above bobbin but below throat plate. I have had this happen and nothing will move, untill needle released. The bobbin holder tension may also need adjusting after the knots of black cotton are removed.

My bobbin winding has suddenly stopped and I can not get it to wond a bobbin. I was in the middle or winding one when it stopped working.


Hello,

Open the bobbin cover and remove the bobbin from your machine. Examine the bobbin case and make sure there aren't stray threads jammed into any grooves. If you see clumps or strands of thread, remove them with your fingers or with tweezers.

Look over how the bobbin is positioned in the case and whether or not it is inserted correctly. Different machines hold the bobbin in different ways and some machines don't use a bobbin case. Consult your machine's manual for the proper way for its bobbin to be inserted.

Make sure the thread is wound evenly on the bobbin. If your thread has large sections of loose loops sticking out from the rest of the thread, they easily could be causing the problem. Rewind the bobbin, if needed.

Clean the shuttle mechanism and the bobbin case with a small soft brush, such as a make-up brush, and a dust cloth. Remove as much dust and tiny fiber pieces as possible. Resist the urge to blow into the machine to clear away dust, this can send debris farther back into the machine, causing more serious problems.

Oil the movable pieces of the shuttle by putting a few drops of sewing machine oil on a Q-tip and rubbing the Q-tip over the hinge-like turning areas. Do not add too much oil to the machine; one drop goes a long way.

Reload your bobbin into the machine and sew a line along a piece of scrap fabric. Check your thread tension and adjust it as needed following the manufacturer's instructions. The upper thread should never show through the bottom and the bobbin thread should never show through the top.

I hope this helps to solve the problem.

Good luck.

Bobbin won't wind


I also have the 15358. You probably forgot to "lock" the bobbin winder. After you put the bobbin case on it's peg, push the peg to the right until you hear a click. Then after you disengage the clutch, the bobbin will wind.

Shuttle hook


Hello ZAckofun
The shuttle hook will be covered by a plate called the RACE. Its a flat steel plate that sits over the hook and is snapped in place by 2 black coloured snaps.
Looks like you are trying to operate the machine without the race on. try that and it should work.
