Try a new needle and make sure that you have a long enough tail to hold when you lower your needle to pick up the thread

On some of these machines when the bobbin winder is on it stops the rest of the machine from working. Push the bobbin winder mechanism to the left and see if your machine will work.

Christytn,

I am going to guess that you have the bobbin thread facing the wrong way. When you
put it in the case, open part facing you, make sure the thread is going clockwise.
That should fix the problem.

Needle may need to be changed. Be sure it is the correct needle for the machine.

How does bobbin work


don't forget to load the spool under the foot plate with cotton as well and make sure its loose thred it up and try to watch if it picks it up from under the foot and pull it out so you have one cotton from the bobbin and one coming out from under the foot through a small hole and try again
let me know if you still have problems with it the timeing might be out a bit as well

Bobbin


it would be a good idea to have the machine checked to make sure
the hook and the hook race are working the way the should.
but first try a new needle
rethread the machine using every thread guide
make sure the bobbin is in the bobbin case correctly and turned the
correct direction in the bobbin case

Sewing Machine


try changing the needle
rethread the machine top & bobbin
make sure to use every thread guide
make sure the bobbin is not damaged or warped
make sure the bobbin is not over full & that it is inserted
correctly into the bobbin case
make sure the bobbin is turned the right way in the bobbin case
if none of these suggestions help,, it's also possible that the
machine could be out of time & would have to be checked at a
repair shop

I volunteer at a women's prison in their sewing class and we have model 385-16231301. The bobbin thread does not pick up. The bobin case seems to sit in their properly, but when I turn it manually...


check the needle to make sure that it's inserted correctly, the flat side of the needle goes to the back of the machine,, and make sure the needle goes all the way up into the needle cavity .

make sure the bobbin is correctly inserted

clean under the needle plate area & in bobbin area for loose threads or lint

if none of the above work & the needle is still hitting something then it 's a great possibility it's out of time & needs to be serviced, cause the needle should not be hitting anything when it goes down.

I do not know how to thread my kenmore 385 sewing machine. I also need to know how to thread the bobbin.


They have threading diagrams for Kenmore 385 models here.
http://www.sewusa.com/Sewing_Machine_Threading_Diagrams.htm
Scroll down until you get to the Kenmore section.
I think they include bobbin winding etc.
Hope this helps!

Kenmore 100 stitch 385 Bobbin thread does not engage into stitch, Needle goes down but thread does not pull up into stitch. Threading bobbin according to diagram on foldout section. replaced the bobbin...


make sure that you have enough of a tail on your thread, at least 3-4 inches and hold it with your left hand until the needle picks up the thread. I am assuming that you have your bobbin threaded correctly and your needle is inserted with the flat side facing the rear of the machine.

Kenmore 385 model Automatic Button Hole Apparatus Jams Thread?


Practice and practice some more! Use the same fabric and interfacing as your project and a NEW needle (the correct needle) This is for the Sears Kenmore 385 automatic button hole maker. Make sure you pull the bobbin thread through the Guide Block - it is that simple. Make sure you pull your thread to the back of the machine though the presser foot slot - the correct presser foot. Account for both thread tails before starting to sew. Keep thread tails to the back of the machine 4-5", insert fabric under presser foot keeping thread tails clear. Mark button hole and sew.

Problem with my machine


If you're not picking up a bobbin thread, it's either a timing issue, or the hook/needle clearance. Usually, with the hook/needle clearance the skipping stitch problem will be intermittent. If it's a timing issue, it may not pick up the bobbin at all.
