You could download an instruction manual from www.singerco.com website, link is http://www.singerco.com/accessories/manuals.html, type in your model number and press "search" to locate it.

The manual should assist you in troubleshooting the problem, it sounds like the bobbin case is either incorrectly inserted or faulty but go through the threading diagrams and see if this helps you to resolve it.

I am having a problem with the thread knotting up on the bottom of my material. The needle starts to lock up and when I start checking the thread is all knotted up. I then take the bobbin out and it...


What you have going on is probably a bobbin problem. The knots are referred to as birds' nests and happen usually happen when your bobbin thread gets caught on something in the bobbin area. To be certain it's a bobbin problem, change your needle. Even if the needle looks fine, it could be just slightly bent and still look fine to the naked eye. If that doesn't solve the problem, take the fabric out of the sewing machine and turn the machine wheel by hand. Watch what happens thru the plastic window in the bobbin area, or if you don't have a plastic window leave the bobbin covering off. Is the thread catching somewhere and causing a bunch of thread to gather in the bobbin area? Be very careful when investigating in the bobbin casing/area-it's easy to chip things in there! Often times, a piece of something falls in there and can be pulled out with tweezers. Just as often, the bobbin casing is slightly tilted and needs to be straightened or has a chip in it and needs to be replaced. You can normally get a replacement on eBay, searching with your machine model number. Also, check out SewVacUSA. If you need help replacing the bobbin casing (it's easy, you just need to be careful), or if these solutions don't work, leave me a comment. I check back daily, so I'll get back to you within 24 hours normally. Leave me as much detail as possible and I'll do everything I can to help you!

I am not sure about this particular machine but in most machines there will be a nob on the front loose low numbers like 0 1 -2 work well on number 3. If the nob is not on the front check and see if it is on the side.

Model # 9113 - The thread bunches under the fabric but the top seam is okay.

You may have the wrong size bobbin in there, if that is not it, it may be a scarred bobbin case. Tell me what machine make and model you have. If, you have plastic bobbin, it can cause horrible stitches, you can try a metal one, again, let me know what you have and maybe we can work it out.

The original bobbin provided with the machine is 11.5mm. But I could get only 11.4mm bobbin. Can I use that because in the manual it is said that we can't use other model bobbins.Please help.


Don't use it. The bobbin cases are designed to work with the specified bobbin size, see if you can track them down on Ebay or through a sewing machine dealer in your area.

KENMORE SEWING MACHINE MODEL 1792181


Call some local dealers and tell them what you are looking for. I,m sure one of them will have it,maybe even in stock. It's not always easy to know which bobbin case you need ( especially Kenmores) so be prepared to take in the old bobbin case or the bobbin or even the sewing machine for ready Identification.
Some helps; If your bobbin has holes all the way around then you probably have a standard case with a finger sticking up which you can get from any dealer. If you have a solid bobbin and a wrinkle finish paint on the machine you have an older machine and the dealer may have to order it for you. Be aware there are 2 different sizes of this bobbin case.You must get the right one for it to work.
