If anyone owns the above sewing machine can you tell me if the handwheel on the right side of the machine is free wheeling. Mine is and I wonder if something is wrong with my machine. My book says nothing about the wheel, just that it is called the handwheel. I would sure appreciate anything you can tell me about this wheel. Thanks

it sounds like to me that the wheel has been loosened to do a bobbin...is there a circle in the center of the wheel? see if you can tightened it. You have to loosen it to wind a bobbin, maybe thats it???? check your book for winding a bobbin, to better understand what I'm talking about???

If this isn't it, does Kenmore have a site where you can ask questions. I know Brother does, and I jsut wondered...

Hi Linda & Sadiemae:

I sent you a personal email about this. I should have put it on the Board. I haven't been on line for quite some time due to family visits and sickness.

I thought it might be easier to ask here than to ask Sears about it. I just got it back from Sears and they said it was the needle that was bad. My complaint was that the wheel was free wheeling. You figure???

Thank you for your reply.

I'm thinking the clutch is disengaged ... did you reset everything fully after winding a bobbin?

Hi Moonpi
It doesn't require using the handwheel when you wind a bobbin. You just move the bobbin into the piece that measures how much thread to put on the bobbin. That's why it is such a mystery to me as to what the handwheel is supposed to do. Thanks for your reply. Where do you live in Central Fl.? I'm close to Leesburg.

I can't recall if you need to pull the hand wheel out to wind a bobbin or not. Try pushing it in and see if it helps. I used have the Kenmore Elite machine, it looked a lot like yours.
The motherboard went out on mine and only straight stitch and zig zag worked. I gave it to a new sewist who just wanted a those 2 stitches.

Thanks Linda I have already done that but didn't get an answer back. I'll have to try with them again in a couple of weeks. I've got a sick husband to care for now.

Thanks again.
