Question about Kenmore 15516 Mechanical Sewing Machine
Hi, I borrowed a bernina 1090 and was doing fine when my bobbin thread broke and I rethreaded it and when turning the wheel by hand to get the bobbin thread to come up suddenly the needle will not move up or down. I am now very nervous as this is my mother-in-laws machine. What can I do?
Make sure the bobbin winder is off.
Remove the thread and turn the handwheel to see if it is free. Check the bobbin and hook area to see that there is no thread locked around something. If there is , remove it and try it by hand again. If this doesn't solve your problem, talk to ***********-in-law and let her know about the problem. She may have had the same problem earlier and if not she can tell you where to take it for service. I don't think this is a serious problem that should entail a lot of expense.Don't try to hide the problem as this will upset her a lot more when it comes out as you know it will.
