Question about Kenmore Sewing Machines
Check that the needle is in correctly, flat shank to the back. This is first thing to check as the hook rotates around and catches the thread from the back of the needle as the two come together to form the stitch. So if the needle is in wrong, the scarf at the back (scooped out area) won't be there and no stitch. Make sure needle is inserted fully up into the housing and that it is the correct system needle (most machines use the 130/705H system). Put in a new needle from the pack to make sure.
Is the bobbin in properly, rotating the right direction and under tension. So check needle, check bobbin, rethread everything and try again.
There is good general machine info on www.sewing.about.com which might help you too.
Less likely but it does happen, is the timing could be out, so the needle at the bottom of its movement and the hook swinging around it are out of sync. Timing can be knocked out if there has been a jam up, needle striking the sewing foot or something similar. If you suspect that this is what is going on, then probably time to take machine to a technician who can repair this.
