Question about Kenmore Sewing Machines
The bobbin may not be installed exactly in the right way (a little askew).
The Tension needs to be adjusted
Your needle is bent or dull
One thread does not work well with the other. The threads must be able to slide and tighten, too much friction for one thread can cause tangles.
Let me know if any of those are pointing us in the right direction. i can give more advise as needed. Also, check youtube.com to learn how to set the tension on your machine (most are similar, the knob is just in a different place on each machine).
The tension contolls the feed rate for the bottom (bobbin thread). The top thread is mostly controlled by the stitch length knob. Play with both a bit. Bottom should come out when pulled gently but give some resistance. Good luck.
