Question about Kenmore 15516 Mechanical Sewing Machine
You have to wiggle the handwheel back a forth to free the fabric. See if you cannot remove your needle completely, even if you have to cut it, then pull all of the pieces out. Now, clean and lubricate the machine, another little thing, unscrew the throat plate with a short stubby screwdriver, there is usually a nest of felt like lint collected there. Remove it. totally rethread. Do not turn your handwheel away from you because you will mess up your timing and have to take it for service, it is not a do it yourself job. The next time you sew, make sure you hold your uppper and lower threads for a few stitches. Use a stabilizer of some sort, you can usually use gift tissue paper or printer paper until you get going. Be patient and you will get it. Good luck Happy New Year
