Hold bobbin in left hand with thread coming up and over the top of the bobbin, then drop bobbin into the holder and pull the thread through the slot and into the the 'spring' you should be able to catch the bobbin holder in your left hand just by holding the thread if done correctly. the little 'arm' on the bobbbin holder
should be pointing up - enter it to the machine with the left hand and slot the 'arm' into its position at the top- there is only place it, can go -I do hope you haven't had to wait this long to use your machine!

Re: kemore sewing machine
Practicly impossible to "describe" how to do it, you need to be shown, other added problem is there are numerous different types of bobbins etc. Unless you can get someone to show you the next best option is to get hold of a copy of a user manual for your machine. Best of luck
a 6ya Repairman can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Make sure that when the bobbin is in place that you can pull the bobbin thread with your hand easily. If not, the bobbin may be in backwards or the bobbin thread is not properly routed. Also, make sure that the foot is down when you try to catch the bobbin thread with the needle.
first of all make sure you have the needle in the correct way round,
flat side facing back, try a new needle, it only has to be slightly
bent or blunt and it will miss stitches, the tension unit is the small
piece near the takeup lever and it only has a small spring but that has
nothing to do with the threading picking up, if the machine misses
stitches after trying the above then you will need to retime the
machine either bu a shop or by yourself, if you are sewing on fabric
that collects static such as knitted fabric make sure you use an
anti-static needle otherwise it will miss stitches.
Make sure your bobbin is placed in correctly. Thread is counterclockwise as you place bobbin in the metal piece. Pull thread end through sliver in metal piece. Hold on to movable metal latch then lock the bobbin in place. Bobbin should not fall out but is able to rotate. Rotate the wheel on the furthest right of your Singer 1507 machine towards you to move the needle downward. The top thread should then be able to catch and pull up the bobbin thread.
Firstly, turn machine off then turn back on. Change needle. Re-thread the top and bobbin threads. Make sure you have not set the machine for a sideways stitch but you have been using a single stitch foot (recipe for Disaster!). BEFORE trying to sew, wind the machine by hand through a stitch or two (take the thread out of the needle's eye first) and look closely to see if the needle is in fact hitting something. If it is, then the needle needs re-centering and you will have to take the machine for repair to get this done. Make sure the top thread is going into the tension disks. The presser foot MUST be up while you are threading. Hold onto the thread just as it comes off the spool and when you get down to the needle give a tug to be sure the thread is seated in the tensions before threading the needle. When you insert the bobbin, be sure the thread "clicks" into the tension slot on the bobbin case. Check the Sewing Advisor to be sure you are set for the correct fabric and stitch for what you are sewing. Have you cleaned out the bobbin area? Remove the clear or smoke bobbin cover, either use the tool provided or just press down firmly and slide forwards the metal feed dog cover (feed dogs down first), lift out the light grey plastic bit that half covers the bobbin case, remove bobbin case. Use the brush and clean out all the fluff from the bobbin area. Then check the bobbin case and clean it too. You can use a piece of strong thread or UNWAXED dental floss to clean out between the tension springs (the bit where the bobbin thread 'clicks' into). Reassemble the bobbin pieces in reverse order, making sure that when you replace the metal feed dog cover you push it all the way to the back and it too will 'click' into place. Hope something in the above works for you.
Check the easy stuff first: Make sure the needle is inserted in the
machine properly- a good rule of thumb is the flat side of the needle
should go to the opposite side of the last thread guide. Also make sure
the machine is threaded correctly.
the needle is in correctly with the flat side to the rear of the
machine, make sure to thread the upper and lower portions of the
the needle is in the machine correctly- all the way up into the needle
bar, make sure that it is threaded correctly, etc. If this all checks
out ok, take the bobbin case out of the machine. There are two ears on
either side of the bobbin case- turn the left one to the left and the
right one to the right. Remove the silver ring, and inspect the piece
of metal that the ring came off of (looks like a circle with the top
cut off). You have to locate the hook which is the piece that looks
like a half moon inside the big round metal piece. Locate the tip of
it, turn the handwheel toward you until the needle is in the lowest
position, at this point the tip of the hook should be flush with top of
the left side of the cut off circle. If this is not so, your machine
needs to be re-timed. If that is the case.
Have you lowered the presser foot lever? It is the lever behind the needle that makes the foot go down. Do you put the bobbin in the machine from the top of the machine or from the front? In either case, you need to make sure the bobbin thread has clicked into the tension slot in the bobbin case. The bobbin case is the part of the machine that the bobbin sits in. It will have some kind of narrow cut out with a thin metal shaped piece half covering the opening. The thread has to go down into the cut out piece and click down beside the metal piece. You will hear a faint "click" when it is in place. Very hard to describe, but easy to show someone! Write back if this is not helpful to you. Also tell us your machine model.
youch! how frustrating. It sounds like there is a piece of thread caught in or around the bobbin casing. take the whole casing out and clean with your brush.
I feel your pain, hope this helps. If not, please come back and we'll try some other things.
Can you remove the bobbin? Sometimes when thread gets bunched up under the lower plate it will force the bobbin out of position. Try taking it out and cleaning any loose thread and lint from the area. Put a couple of drops of oil on the outside of the bobbin case and re-insert it. Make sure you lower the needle and pull the bobbin thread through to the top and back behind the needle before beginning to sew again.
Hope this works!
