Needle won't pick up bobbin thread - HELP!!!

My LS2125 was working just fine, then, right in the middle of making Christmas blankets, it quit picking up the bobbin thread. #1 - I know virtually nothing about sewing, so forgive me if I don't know the proper terminology. Anyway, I cleaned out the bobbin holder & oiled everything. I replaced the needle also. All is does is make holes in the material & won't "hook-up" with the bobbin thread. What do I do??? thanks....

    Won't pull materials through, and won't pick up bobbin thread. Also clicks and won't cycle.

    Clicking, won't pick up bobbin thread, and does not pull material through.

    The Feed dogs won't pull material through, and the bobbin thread can't be picked up.

I recently fixed my wife maching with the same problem. I found that the screw had come loose that holds the linkage together that rotates the bobbin holder. I was fortunate enough to notice the screw while looking at the machine. To replace it requires taking both the front and back covers off of the frame since the bobbin holder linkage is in the rear behind the needle area. Be careful to insure that the plastic toothed "rail" that runs the bobbin holder is positioned properly or it may break off a tooth. Once I replaced the screw and put the machine back together, it picked up the thread with no problem. Hope this helps.

CHECK THESE FIRST::
NEW NEEDLE.
MAKE SURE NEEDLE IS INSERTED THE RIGHT DIRECTION. LOOK AT YOUR INSTRUCTION BOOK.
MAKE SURE INSERTED IS TOTALLY INSERTED.
CHECK TO SEE IF THE BOBBIN THREAD IS STUCK. ALSO, ENOUGH LENGTH OF BOBBIN LENGTH EXTENDED TO ALLOW THE NEEDLE TO PULL IT UPWARDS.
MAKE SURE THE BOBBIN THREAD IS INSERTED THE RIGHT DIRECTION AND SET WITH CORRECT TENSION.
CHECK TOP NEEDLE TENSION TO INSURE THERE IS TENSION ENOUGH TO PULL THE BOBBIN THREAD ABOVE THE THROAT.
IF THESE DON'T WORK YOU MAY NEED TO GO TO YOUR LOCAL REPLAIRMAN.

Bobbin not picking up thread


here are some suggestions
make sure the needle is the right one for the fabric being sewed
make sure the needle is all the way up into the needle holder
check to see if the top thread has come off the thread take up lever
try a different bobbin
if the machine is a front or side loading bobbin make sure the bobbin
is inserted correctly into the bobbin case and that the bobbin case
is inserted correctly into the machine
turn the bobbin the opposite way in the bobbin case
also clean under the needle plate and in the bobbin area for lint
it's a possibility that the machine could have a timing problem and
needs to be checked

Bobbin thread will not pick up


Ensure the bobbin thread is mounted on correctly and using your right hand turn the gear that makes the needle go up and down until it catches the thread.

Problems with prolectrix sewin machine


you have to make sure the bobbin thread is positioned right in the middle. When the needle comes down (into the bobbin compartment), you can peer into the bobbin compartment and see a loop of thread (coming out of the needle). You want to catch that bobbin (thread) in the loop of thread (that runs from the needle).

Don't go directly from the thread spool to the bobbin.
You have to go via the thread quide, (near the end of the head at left side) and under the small roller.

Pass your thread to the bobbin turn your thread 3 turns to the right, clockwise,
then pass the end of the thread, under the coming thread and give it another 3 turns to the right.
For better results, always remove old thread from bobbin before filling it up.
Push the thread winder lever to lock the bobbin.
Start winding slowly. If the thread is loading in the down position,
put your finger under the thread between the bobbin and the the thread quide, untill you see that the thread is feeding evenly.

Threading & bobbin won't pick up


Make sure the needle is inserted all the way in with the long groove to the left.
Threading is through 1)the thread guide 2)The tension 3)The take up lever 4) The needle eye (left to right).

Remove the needle plate, thread the machine. Turn the hand wheel and watch the thread in the needle to see if it is above the eye of the needle. If it is, the machine needs to be retimed.
