My Kenmore machine is about 12 years old. I haven't used it very much over the
past few years. I cleaned and oiled it and everything seemed fine. ( I also
changed the needle.)
Now when I start sewing - straight stitch -- after a few inches the needle
pushes the fabric into the bobbin opening. I cannot get the fabric to release
without pulling and pushing it out from under the plate. I put a hole in a new
pair of slacks I was hemming.
What's causing this and can I make necessary repairs or should I take it to
Sears repair station.
Thank you for any help you can give me.
