Question about Brother ULT2001
I have a 10 year old Kenmore sewing machine. I was sewing the other day and the needle hit the presser foor and bent. Now the needle will not hit the opening in the presser foot at all. It hits about 1/32 inch to the right of the hole. I dont' have the money to get it professionally repaired right now. Is this something I can fix myself?
SOURCE: bobbin thread wont pick up
Be sure needle is inserted correctly with the flat side in the proper position. Rethread the machine and try again. If it still won't work you have a timing problem which requires a technician or a good mechanic.

If you're having the same problem we did, the attachment is installed too high on the bar. Move it down as far as possible and see if that solves the problem. If it doesn't, check to see whether the machine is belt-driven; did the belt break or slip off?

This also happens when the bobbin winder is too close to the right-like when you wind a bobbin and don't put it back or not back all the way to the left.

make sure your needle is facing the right way, some needles if you look at the front and back you will see a groove side and a flat side sometimes it is hard to tell the difference depending on needle style.. hold it up to light and look at it from the side the difference will be slight but you will see a difference groove should face the back or if your presser foot is out of wack (lol so technical terminology) it could cause needle breaks and noise you can detect damage to the presser foot if this is happening.... only other thing i can suggest is to make sure bobbin is securely snapped into the housing if not it can cause problems with the needle picking up the bobbin
