How do you thread a bobbin on a Kenmore 14?

Why won’t my Kenmore sewing machine pick up the bobbin thread?

First, make sure the bobbin-winding spindle (located on top of your machine) has been pushed back to the left for sewing. If it is not in the correct position, the needle will not go down and pick-up your bobbin thread. … Make sure the presser foot is up when seating the thread through the upper tension.

Why is my bobbin not spinning?

If your bobbin does not wind quickly and smoothly when you press on your foot pedal, your bobbin winder might not be fully engaged. This can cause uneven winding. Make sure you push your bobbin pin all the way over or loosen your bobbin wheel completely to engage your bobbin winding mechanism.

How does the needle catch the bobbin thread?

Raise the presser foot and the needle to their highest positions. With your left hand, hold the end of the upper thread. With your right hand, turn the balance wheel toward you (counterclockwise) until the needle moves down and back up again to its highest position.
