How the bobbin loads and works with the top thread.


Turn the machine wheel slowly to watch the depth that the threaded needle travels so that it meets the approaching hook-point of the bobbin holder. Point should almost touch the needle side and grab the thread just above the eye and wrap it all the way around the bobbin and holder. If the needle extends too far, it will jam. Not far enough and it doesn't reach the turning hook.

I have the Kenmore sewing machine #16231. When I was sewing the bobbin holder popped out and a bunch of thread bunched together and wrapped around the bobbin and caused bunching of thread on my fabric...


Bunching of thread is 99% a top tension problem. Make sure you thread the top thread correctly. Thread the machine with the presser lever up. Test the tension by lowering the presser lever before threading the eye of the needle, by pulling the thread with your left hand and adjusting the tension with your right hand while slowly pulling downwards. There should be no resistance when the tension dial is on zero, and you should be able to feel more resistance when you increase the tension. Ideal tension is between 3 and 5. When your top tension is correct, your machine should operate correctly. If you feel no resistance with the presser foot down and the tension dial on 5, check the tension disks for fluff or broken thread. When you lift the presser foot, the tension disks should open and you would be able to remove any cotton or fluff. Good Luck

My bottom thread keeps getting jammed when I start sewing. What's goin on?


It sounds like the bobbin may be positioned wrong (it should turn counterclockwise when you place it in the holder) or the bobbin is not pulled completely through the notch in the holder.

Also, make sure your top thread is threaded properly too. Sometimes I've had problems when I thought it was the bobbin but it turned out to be my main thread.

Hope that helps.

How do you load the bobbin properly?


Hi there,

Well you may please follow the steps below -
1. Remove the bobbin from the sewing machine. Note: whether you have a drop-in, front or side-loading bobbin on your sewing machine. A drop in bobbin will load from the top, may be via a removable bobbin case cover near the machine-fed dogs. A side or front loading bobbin needs to be loaded into a removable bobbin case under the machine.
2. Choose the right size bobbin for the sewing machine.
3. Wind thread onto your bobbin. Your sewing machine should have a standard thread spool to hold the thread and a short, squat post wide enough for a bobbin.
4. Put the thread and empty bobbin into position on your sewing machine. Wrap the thread around the bobbin to start it. On most machines, disengage the needle by turning the smaller hand-wheel on the machine toward you. Push the bobbin post into position, securing the bobbin into place. Press gently down. Thread should begin to wind neatly onto your bobbin.
5. Break the thread, push the bobbin post back into an inactive position and remove the bobbin. Tighten the hand-wheel. Thread your sewing machine again if necessary before loading the bobbin.
6. Remove the bobbin case cover and put the bobbin into position. The thread should slide through a catch on the bobbin case and up through the cover.
7. Access the bobbin case for a front or side mount bobbin. Lift the catch and remove the removable bobbin holder. Put the bobbin into the holder and run the thread through the holder, bringing it to the front. Lift the catch and slide the bobbin holder back into the case. Hold your needle thread gently forward with your left hand and turn the hand-wheel. The needle thread will pass down into the machine and catch a loop of the bobbin thread. Pull this loop up and slide both threads to the back before beginning to sew.
Good Luck!!

Thanks for using FixYa!!

How do I thread the bobbin in a kenmore 17628


you shoul check your manual.

If you don't have one,
I'am not sure what this machine looks like,

On the top part of the machine, put your thread on the thread spool,(on the right) the thread should be brought over to the left side and wraped around a small button looking piece. then brought back towards the spool of thread, bring the thread through a small hole in the bobbin, pul 2-3inch out, place the bobbin on the small metal bobbin holder and push to the right,

make sure pressure foot is up. you will need to loosen the hand wheel, hold the hand wheel with the left and and with the right hand turn the center circle back to it loosend (counter clockwise)

make sure the bobbin wind evenly

Bobbin threading


Unthread the machine
Open the top of the machine and take the thread and place it through one of the whole in the bobbin (from inside to outside) and pre-wind to secure the thread around the bobbin
Wrap the thread around the far left feeder knob on the top and put the bobbin on the bobbin holder in the top right-hand side
Push the bobbin to the right until it snaps in place (it will click)
On the outside of the machine, un-secure the hand sewing wheel so that it is loose
Power the pedal and watch the bobbin load
When finished, push the bobbin holder back to the left to release it and you're done

Beeps several times and stops sewing.


I had the same problem. Through trial and error, I found the problem was with the thread tension. Usually the thread became wrapped around the spool holder as it was coming off the spool. As you continue to press the pedal, tension is created. When you release the pedal, some slack develops in the threading process and you are able to sew a few more stitches before the beeping starts again. If the thread is caught on the spool holder, simple re-thread the machine.That generally works for me. Also you can try to push to spool holder in as close as possible to the spool pin to alleviate any gaps. If the beeping continues to happen, place you thread in a cup behind the machine and thread as usual. You can also purchase an inexpensive thread holder. I made one out of a wood block and other odds and ends found around the house. Good Luck!
