Question about Kenmore Sewing Machines

I have a kenmore 385.19106 sewing machine. I am

I have a kenmore 385.19106 sewing machine. I am new to sewing with a machine. I began sewing yesterday and all seemed fine. Today, the threat from the bobbin continuously doubles and triples as I am sewing. What is the problem, what am I doing wrong? When threading the bobbin instructions say after guiding thread into notch 2 through tension spring to pull thread until it slips into notch 3. One problem is that it is not slipping into notch three. Help!!!

Go to Sears and talk to their sewing machine dept, I am sure that the salesperson will explain it to you for free. You need to have instruction beyond a book. If, you cannot go to Sears, check with your neighbors, there has to be one that sews or your local high school, Home ec teacher. Good luck

Have a Kenmore 1357. Was working perfectly until I began sewing satin ruffle onto fleece. Seems to siege. Needle won't even try to go into material. Just goes to top of presser foot and stops.


Is it a mechanical machine (not computerized)? Did you oil the internal metal parts that rub against other metal parts? With an older mechanical machine, frequently the old oil turns to goo and sticks things rather than lubricates. Use only fresh good quality sewing machine oil. Hand rotate the wheel and place 2 drops of oil every place metal rubs metal (including the bobbin area). To help loosen things, direct hot air from a handheld hairdryer into the interior of the machine.

This process was used on an older Kenmore that had totally frozen, but it was working again within 15 minutes.

Yes, your Kenmore should sew fleece. However, if the fleece is very thick, it may be more difficult. Be sure to use a new needle and a needle recommended for fleece.

Kenmore sewing machine


Have you changed the needle? If you have sewn for many hours it may just be a matter of a new needle. Be sure to use flat back kenmore or kenmore compatiable needles...no Singer (too long).
