Kenmore mini ultra The top thread breaks off from needle after a few stitches. The bobbin seems to Be catching the top thread. Thank you. ??


If the top thread sews a few inches and then breaks, something is catching the top thread and holding it until it breaks. Usually, this will happen when using the old style thread cones with the slit in the edge to keep the thread from raveling off the spool. To prevent the thread from hanging up, turn the thread spool over so the slit is at the top instead of the bottom. Sometimes top thread breaks will happen if the thread becomes looped around the thread spool pin.

Remove the thread, ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and then rethread the upper thread. Verify that the thread path is correct and that the thread has not looped around a guide.

If the thread is fraying at the needle eye, the needle/thread are not compatible. Also, the tension may be too high.

Check that the upper tension disk is clean--no gunk buildup or thread pieces stuck.

If the thread is actually breaking when it penetrates the needle plate hole, there may be a burr or nick somewhere below that is catching the upper thread. You can wrap your finger with a piece of fine fabric, like an old pair of hosier, fine knit fabric, etc. and running your finger around in the bobbin area, under the needle plate. If you get snags, then you have a burr or nick. If it is small, you can sometimes smooth it with a fine emery board. If it is a large burr, you may need to purchase a replacement part.

My Kenmore Mini Ultra sewing machine won't sew the button stitch. I have followed the instructions on the manual but still the thread does not get sewn onto the fabric. Simple straight stitches are ok


it's possible that there could be a problem with the gear or cam that does the button hole stitch

try a different needle--one for the fabric being sewed
try a different bobbin --make sure the bobbin is not warped or damaged
try different thread-- use EVERY thread guide

make sure the bobbin is wound correctly--inserted correctly in to the bobbin case--and turned the right way.

REPLACE THE NEEDLE AND INSERT WITH THE FLAT SIDE TO THE BACK OR TO THE RIGHT DEPENDING ON THE TYPE. HOLD THE NEEDLE THREAD WHILE YOU TURN THE HAND WHEEL. THE BOBBIN THREAD SHOULD RISE. IF IT DOESN'T THEN IT IS LIKELY THE NEEDLE AND THE HOOK (UNDER THE BOBBIN CARRIER) ARE OUT OF TIME. YOU WILL NEED TO VISIT YOUR PRO FOR THIS.

Bobbin case catching thread


I believe that you are talking about the assembly that holds the bobbin case in. The bracket that holds the bobbin case in must be adjusted to allow the upper thread to slide by. Check if the thread will go by this area without "hanging up" while rotating the hand wheel. Also check your bobbin to make sure you have the right one. If it is too high or wide it will definitely be a problem.

How do i thread a kenmore ultra mini?


o to Sears.com. They have manuals to download for FREE. Your model is 385 11206 Ultra Mini Kenmore. I had the same problem, misplaced my manual and found it online yesterday 01-20-11. It's upsetting to me that so many people are on here trying to get everyone to pay $10 for something they are getting for FREE. I've tried several times to copy it to this posting without luck. Hopefully the money makers will not delete my posting and everyone can get the free manuals. I think they have manuals available for most things they sell available free like this.Good Luck!

The manual will tell you how to thread it. :)

Our kenmore model 385.18221 machine just sews for a couple of stitches and then just balls up the thread on the bottom of the material. If you run it through manually the thread appears to be hanging up on...


I've had similar problems with my Kenmore 385 and have found that a really, really good cleaning and oiling solves them. That's what I'd recommend you do first. If that doesn't solve the problem, take out the bobbin assembly and look for any nicks or scratches where the thread could be getting caught. (I'm not sure what you mean by 'stopper'--but check it for spurs, nicks, etc, that could be hanging the thread up.)

Nearly all sewing machine problems (including this one) can be solved by:
1. a really good cleaning
2. a new needle
3. rethreading


Hope this helps!

Top thread won't grab bobbin thred. It's a Kenmore Mini Ultra


Re-sync the bobbin to the hook:
the needle should "pick up" the bobbin thread when the needle is about 1/4 inch below the hook move the mechanism slowly and, observe the interaction and you will see the adjustment screws on the carrier shaft you will need to adjust
