Question about Kenmore 15358
I've made three pairs of pants for my daughters dance team and while I was sewing the machine jammed. All of the upper thread was stuck in where the bobbin thread comes out of and then the needle broke off. I replaced the needle and rethreaded and checked the bobbin and tension and even tried another fabric but it keeps jamming! The machine is only one week old and I still have 20 more pairs of pants with matching tops to finish this week! HELP!!!!
Could it be that the feed dogs are down? I also have the 15358 and when I opened the bobbin area to clean it, I had this problem. Apparently, when you open the clips around the outside of the casing, it pushes the lever that adjusts the feed dogs to the right (lowering them). I didn't even realize it at first. Check your manual for adjusting this lever to raise the feed dogs. That might solve your problem.

Thank you! I actually fixed the problem by changing my needle and the bobbin. I think when I changed the needle initially I put it in wrong and it was dull. I had also changed bobbins and I think I had the wrong size. So I bought the correct bobbins and new needles. This seemed to correct the problem.
