Needle picks up bobbin thread but then thread gets stuck

The model number I have is 3205FA. I am new to the use of sewing machines but I have installed the bobbin exactly as described in the manual. I can get the needle to pick up the bobbin thread, but then the thread won't come out any further and seems to get stuck. When I look underneath, the thread seems to be underneath the bobbin case and wrapped around the underside of the case...is that normal? And what could I be doing wrong?

Make sure you have the bobbin case clicked in properly, thgis will cause the thread to tangle round the bobbin case, take the bobbin case out and with a bobbin in the machine pull the thread through nice and even, it should pull through with some slight tension, as you are pulling the thread through look at the actual bobbin to make sure it is not buckled.

I've had similar problems (as well as other problem with the thread breaking all the time and the "shuttle race" thing that holds the bobbin falling out. One very important thing that isn't mentioned in the manual but that the salesman stressed is that you have to use only "Schmetz" brand needles. They are a tiny bit longer, but that makes all the difference in the world if your stitches are skipping. I forgot and used Singer needles and had horrible results.

I had exactly the same problem on the exact same model 3205FA. I'm not an expert, but have a little experience on solving my wife and daughter's sewing machine mechanical problems. I would suggest the following: A. Page 6 of the owners manual see item # 1...to be precise it is 1 1/2 times around. B. Page 7 at the bottom, Make sure the bobbin tension spring is set so that there is tension. When holding the tread the bobbin shouldn't unroll. If jiggled about 2-3 inches the bobbin should release about 1/3 of that distance. C. Page 8 at the bottom, ill. # 2. There are two flange holders and screws that hold the bobbin case in position located at about 5 and 7 o'clock. Make sure both screws are tight. This is important. D. Make sure the thread is treaded through the upper tension adjustment properly. See page 9 # Illustration C. Terrible illustration. Keep the dial generally in the green range. E. Put in a new needle, the needles that come with the machine are just short of terrible. Wouldn't hurt to buy good top quality needles for the machine.

I need help with a white sewing machine model 765 I can't get it to sew it doesn't pick up the bobbin thread


First thing to try is a brand new needle. A bent/damaged needle may not be able to pick up the bobbin thread.

Otherwise, it is possible it has a timing issue, ie the needle is arriving at the bobbin at the wrong time in order to connect with the bobbin thread. Search the internet web sites and videos. There is a lot of information on how to fix sewing machine timing. Or take it for service.

Why won't my new home super stretch stitch model-844 pick up bobbin thread to sew manual book


If you need a manual, search the internet for:

Make + Model + the word "Manual"

or contact the manufacturer.

Try installing a brand new needle. A bent needle sometimes will not connect properly. Be sure that both upper and bobbin threads are threaded correctly.

On the other hand, the needle/hook could be out of time. You can check that by hand turning the handwheel and watching the needle/hook movement. There are a multitude of web sites and videos that discuss timing. Or--check with a sewing machine technician.

Could be threaded wrong - check manual for proper threading
Needle could be bent - check and replace if needed
Needle plate could be damaged - see if any burrs are on it if so take to service dealer and have removed
Bobbin could be wound wrong - check manual
Bobbin could be bent - if so replace.

Necchi Heavy Duty Sewing machine model 3205FA, bend needle while hemming denim skirt, replaced the needle, but now the needle is not picking up the bobbin thread, any suggestions for me to try???


Generally when the needle does not pick up the bobbin thread, it means the needle is either too far in or just plain the wrong length. YOu might want to try lowering the needle just a hair and see if that helps.
