Make sure the stitch is set to a sewing stitch, (not a buttonhole stitch).
Set the stitch length dial to a longer stitch.
Make sure you have you feed dogs set to the "up" position.

Motor runs but mechnism dont move

Broken or slipping Belt running off handwheel is most likely UNPLUG MACHINE FIRST !!
remove side cover, tighten motor adjustment to slightly slack like car fanbelt (not tight, some "give" is needed).
If you cannot easily open the case, take it to Service Centre or you WILL break casing clips.

Bobbin thread bunching

I had that problem, too, then realized my needle was in the wrong way. The flat side needs to be inserted AWAY from you.
I have a Kenmore 16528. It was such an easy solution! I was ready to take it in for repairs! Hope that helps!
