By any chance did you check the throttle??? A lot of even the newer models get jammed. This is caused by no lubrication. Try to lubricate the machine and give it a whirl, bet it works!!! Please do not forget to vote for the help you got today.... Guy :)

Kenmore sewing machine my sewing machine won't sew, it just makes a noise


If it's an older mechanical machine, it most likely has seized due to lack of recent, thorough oiling. Refrain from forcing the machine to run as it could damage the motor.

Wheel on right side that controls the needle up and down is very tight...

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.

I have kanmore sewing machine its not stiches at all one time noise & stop stiches thered not pick up for bobin its not come out.


Wow. If I understand your attempt at English. Your machine made a noise and now won't sew or pick up the bobbin thread.

First change your needle and make sure it's full inserted and correctly oriented in the needle bar. Do a test stitch on scrap fabric.

If you still have problems.. check the timing. The shuttle hook should just be starting to pass the needle scarf when the needle is at the lowest point of travel.

I hope that helps you. Good luck.

I have a Mini Ultra machine. Sometimes when I am sewing a heavy weight fabric the needle jams -- that is, it hits the plate instead of going through the opening. What is wrong and what can I do?


Most likely reason is the needle is bending. Try using a thicker needle. Heavyweight fabrics such as denim, duck and canvas. Use a 90/14 or a 100/16 needle if sewing on these fabrics; a lighter 70/10 or 80/12 if sewing on cotton. Singer codes this with a blue top.
