Sewing MAchine Problem

I own a Kenmore sewing machine. For a bout a year, it doesn't seems to be sewing right, My question is when I sew a seam together and I turn it over to if the machine is sewing right. The thread is all bunched up together. I've tried adjusting the numbers on how it is supposed to be stitched. Nothing seems to be working.
Thank You,

J.T.

The machine will run nicely for a very brief time, then the squealing begins. It does sew nice seams, but this noise is not right.


if you have a manual check and see if the machine can be oiled
if the manual doesn't say, contact brother customer service
and ask them.
or you can take the machine back and get another one and see
if getting another one is better

L have an Elna 1010 that has never been plugged in. Do I need to oil it before I use it? Is it ready to go after all these years?


check in the manual and see if it's self oiling or not,, some
machine parts are soaked in oil from the factory & don't need
to be oiled other machines have to be oiled,,if the manual doesn't
say then contact elna customer service and ask them.
I won't promise the machine will work or won't work if it's been
sitting for years ,sometimes the grease can become sticky and
hard.
you'll be able to tell as soon as you start sewing, make sure you
read the manual completely, that way you know what the machine
will do and what it won't do.
always use the proper needle for the fabric
and the proper foot
if you go over a seam and the machine seems to struggle, take your
foot off the foot pedal and use the handwheel to move the needle
manually over the seam, that way you don't bend a needle and cause
the machine to jump time.
also make sure to have a comfortable chair and good lighting and
a good seam ripper just in case of a mistake.
if you get frustrated while sewing, get up and walk around, that can
help clear your mind, I've had to do that plenty of times and I've
been sewing for 30 years.
if you don't have a manual send me a comment and I'll try to find you one.
there are several websites that have tutorials and other things for
a quilter,,
happy sewing

Trying to find out what kind of machine I have purchased at sale


Serging is sewing but it only sews seams by "overlocking" the edges. This machine will not make buttonholes, darn or other sewing. Serging is great for knits and finishing seams. You got a great deal! Sell it if you don't think this is what you want. Many sewers have a traditional sewing machine and a serger. I have two of each.. plus an embroidery machine.. but then I am an addict.

Thread tension for regular seam sewing


oil the shaft for the presser bar and keep moving it up and down(it may take a while) until it moves freely. Always use Sewing machine oil Not 3N1 oil.
Tension:
If the thread is loose on the bottom of the fabric, it's actually the top thread is too loose. Think of 2 little elves playing tug of war in your machine, one on top and one underneath. If you have loops on bottom, the top needs to pull harder (tighten top tension). If you have loose thread on top your top tension is probably too tight and your bobbin thread too loose

I can't find a 1/4 inch foot fo rmy sewing machine anywhere...


You can go to Clotilde.com and check out their sewing machine feet. They have them based on whatever shank your sewing machine has. They even have diagrams to let you determine what shank you actually have on your machine.

On the right side of the machine there is a large knob at the top. Pull that out and you can wind your bobbin. Don't forget to push it back in so you can sew :)
