Question about Kenmore 15202 Mechanical Sewing Machine
The bobbin thread keeps getting tangled/knotted after stitching for about 5 inches. It seems that the thread gets cut in two or three places (on the bobbin) and then the stitch that is formed has multiple, knotted loops on the lower side of the fabric. I cut the knot, redirect the bobbin thread through the pressure plate and begin stitching again. It works for about three or four inches and then it happens again. What can I do?
Get out the manual and refer to the maintenance section for cleaning the machine.
Especially the bobbin area. You want to make sure the area around the bobbin case is free of lint and thread.
Use a new bobbin and re-thread the machine, with the presser foot UP.
Install a new needle, again according to the directions in the manual. Installed incorrectly can lead to mis-stitching.
If the problem persits, the timing may need adjusting.
This should be done by the sewing machine tech for Kenmore.
Sewusa.com has a guide for this in the repair section, but you could end up with more problems.
