Question about Kenmore 15516 Mechanical Sewing Machine
I am trying to sew a piece of a t-shirt onto cotton fabric using a zig zag stitch. The bottom thread is a mess. The straight stitch on my machine works fine but when I try to do zig zag the thread is just a jumbled mess.
When ever a machine is jamming up the bobbin thread, it is a result of your top tension. It is either set to low (under 4), or the thread has come out of the take-up lever. Check your threading, fromt he spool pin, down to 2 and up to 3. Three is the take up lever. From the take-up lever down to 4. Set the thread behind the thread guide and thread the needle form front to back. Low quailtu thread 9dual duty or all purpose) can also create this problem.
