Kenmore bobbin issues


try these suggestions
Bobbin thread breaks
1. There is a right way & wrong way to insert the bobbin in the case --when you insert the bobbin in if it doesn't stitch correctly turn the bobbin over see if that helps or bobbin case is not inserted correctly
2. Lint has collected in the bobbin holder
3. The bobbin is damaged & doesn't turn smoothly
4. Lower thread tension is two tight

try changing the needle
rethread the machine top & bobbin
make sure to use every thread guide
make sure the bobbin is not damaged or warped
make sure the bobbin is not over full & that it is inserted
correctly into the bobbin case
make sure the bobbin is turned the right way in the bobbin case
if none of these suggestions help,, it's also possible that the
machine could be out of time & would have to be checked at a
repair shop

The bobbin thread will not pick up. The machine had jammed and I forced the wheel and can't get bobbin thread to pick up. When I thread manually, I only get holes, no stitches. Is it a timing belt?


check your needle to see if it's bent---roll on flat surface to see if it roll correctly
on some sewing machines when the thread comes off the thread take up lever it can cause the machine to jam
also if the bobbin thread becomes tangled it can jam
check the bobbin area for lint or loose threads
try having a top thread tail & bobbin thread tail of 3-4 inches
try holding the top thread tail & turn the handwheel on the right side on the machine manually & put the needle down into the bobbin area & see if the bobbin thread will pick up that way

Needle won't grab bobbin thread


Check the position of the needle. Some machines have to have the needle in a certain way or they won't pick up the thread from the bobbin. Make sure the screw on the bobbin is tight but not to tight you may have to adjust it a few times to get it where it needs to be. Also make sure the bobbin is wound tight

Getting the Bobbin threaded in the Machine


when this has happened to me, the upper thread has somehow run amuck. check to make sure the top thread is STILL routed properly. It might have nothing to do with the bobbin.
