Hi i want to buy

Hi,

I would prefer Kenmore, enmore makes perhaps the largest selection of mechanical machines. The very cheapest Kenmore sewing machines, like the Kenmore Mini (*est. $100) and Kenmore 15208 (*est. $120), stick with a four-step buttonhole, and have just six and eight stitches, respectively. The Kenmore 15212 (*est. $150) and Kenmore 15218 (*est. $170) both have a one-step buttonhole. The cheaper Kenmore 15212 has 12 stitches. The slightly more expensive model has 18 stitches, including a smocking stitch, overcast and elastic stretch stitch in addition to the basics. Both Kenmore sewing machines are good, basic models, say reviews. Both have just a 90-day warranty, however. Bear in mind that Kenmore sewing machines are made by different Asian companies each year, resulting in varying degrees of quality; this also explains the low prices. Some users report difficulty with tension and light fabrics.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

If, I were you I would take my machine to the Sears sewing machine department and ask the salesperson how to do these things. They are usually very helpful, and if you need a manual they can order it for you. Do not be afraid to ask for help because just remember the only dumb question is the one that isn't asked.

More than likely it is your top threading that is not right. Try seating the thread in the tension discs. To do this, rethread, now with the presser foot up, pull the thread, it should feed smoothly. 'After this, put the presser foot down, it should barely move. Hope this helps.

My Bernina 930's lower tension

Hi - you might have a dirty bobbin case, or need a new one. IAfter awhile, little teeny dust bunnies can collect in your bobbin case and cause your bobbin tension to go wonky, especially if you use cotton thread. If you happen to have an extra bobbin case, try using the new bobbin case to see if that solves the problem. Otherwise.....
  • Remove your bobbin case and take out the bobbin. Find a small, stiff brush like the one that came with your machine and stand in very good light. Brush out the inside of your bobbin case, and push one or two bristles of your brush into any opening you can see. If you see any trace of dust but you can't get it out, use tweezers to gently pull the dust out. Now look at the outside of your bobbin case. In the small opening where you insert your bobbin thread into the bobbin case, there is a small piece of metal with screws in it the lays over the bobbin case. Brush that area carefully, and again, insert one or two bristles under than piece of metal and into any other small opening where the bristles will fit. Try sewing again. If you are still getting loops, take out your bobbin case with the bobbin thread still inserted and grab the bobbin thread with two fingers. Let go of the bobbin case - sort of like you are holding a yo-yo. If the bobbin case starts to drop as soon as you let go, your bobbin tension is loose. If the the case doesn't move, gently snap the bobbin thread you are holding and see how far the bobbin case moves down toward the floor (you might need to try this a couple of times, the bobbin has a nasty habit of flying out). When you do the snap, the bobbin case should move down about two inches and stop. If do not know how to adjust the bobbin tension, either check your manual or take the machine in for service.
  • If you haven't already, it's a good idea to remove the thread plate that sits under the needle and clean that area out with your brush. Also, get a really good flashlight and check the area where you insert your bobbin case. Gently turn your fly wheel and look inside the hook area - remove any dust or bits of thread.
In general, you should oil your machine as indicated in your manual as often as directed. You should change your needle every 10 hours of sewing - or each time you start a new project, and you should take your machine in for service every one or two years - even if you only use it once and awhile.

Hope this helps, Ginny

Error 1 message will not leave

Hi - first, check your manual to see if the error is described somewhere. Follow the instructions. If the manual tells you to take the machine in for repair, try a couple things first.

Often when your needle starts to shudder, the thread is caught on something somewhere along the sewing path. Turn off your machine, change your needle, take all of the thread out of the machine and rethread it. Then remove your bobbin to make sure that there is nothing stuck in the bobbin case, or in the area where you insert your bobbin into the machine. Look around the sewing area to see if something looks out of place.

After you insert a new needle and rethreaded your machine, and before you turn the machine back one, try using the wheel to make a few stitches manually. Watch your sewing thread to make sure it is feeding evenly. If the needle does not move up and down correctly, or if you hear a grinding or bumping sound, you probably need to take the machine to be repaired. Otherwise, turn your machine back on. If the error message is gone, try sewing slowly for several inches - if all seems well, increase the speed a little at a time. If anything seems off to you while you sew - stop sewing immediately and look very carefully to see if you can find a problem.

Stitch is very loppy underneath fabric

Hi, you shouldn't need to change the tension on your machine. But it's always a good idea to make sure it is set correctly. Look in your manual for the recommended tension setting, and make sure that is where your tension is set. If you don't have a manual, the default tension setting for most machines is between 4 and 6.

If you are suddenly getting loops when you sew your seams, it is usually caused by one of three simple problems. The most common is that your machine is not threaded properly.

But, when your sewing machine suddenly goes "wonky" - try these step
  1. Raise your presser foot and rethread your machine. Always remember to raise the presser foot when you thread your machine! When you raise your presser foot, the tension dials are released; when you lower the presser foot, the tension dials close around your thread. If you happened to leave your presser foot up when you finished sewing yesterday, the thread could have slipped out of the tension dials, so when you started sewing today, you got loops. And, sometimes, your sewing thread can shift out of position along the thread path and you can't see it. Trust me on this - I often need to rethread while I'm sewing, and I have an expensive machine! If your machine is new to you, it is always a good idea to refer to your manual the first few times you thread up - it is really easy to miss little things, even for advanced sewers.
  2. If you are still getting loops after rethreading your machine, remove your bobbin and reinsert it. Make sure you know which way your bobbin need to be inserted. After you re-insert your bobbin, sew another sample seam. If you are still getting loops...rewind your bobbin (you can put your bobbin where you normally put your sewing thread and wind the bobbin thread onto a new bobbin). Never wind more than one color on a single bobbin. When you look at the thread in the bobbin, it should be straight a tight. Yesterday, I wound a bobbin, and the thread was kind of wavy and loose. Don't know why, but it happens.
  3. Change your needle.
  4. Check your manual - most manuals have troubleshooting tips in the last chapter. If you don't have a manual for your machine, search on google. You might be able to find one online.
  5. If your machine is new, try calling the manufacturer or check their web site. They might have troubleshooting techniques specific to your machine.
If this doesn't help, please write again and describe your problem in more detail. Did you buy a used machine? Do you have your manual? Did you start a new project or continue working on the project you started when the machine was working correctly? Hope this helps! Ginny

If you are asking how to drop the feed dogs, the lever is located underneath the free arm bed on the back side of the machine. So you must first remove the free arm bed. To drop the feed dogs, push the lever over to the side. To raise them back, push the lever the opposite direction, back where they were originally. You will not actually see the feed dogs move until you turn the handwheel toward you. I hope this helps. I do not know how old your machine is or anything. I believe mine is about 5 years old or so. Good luck
