    I have the same problem. When threading the maching the top thread does not catch the bottom thread and bring it up. What's the problem?

Your problem must be fixed by now but here is timing. If you are mechanical enough to pull covers off and find why the timing is wrong, A stripped gear or belt or a loose lock screw. Retiming: A new needle must go to the bottom and begin to rise. At this point the rotary or oscillating hook tip must pass through the escarpment on the back of the needle just above the eye.. Repeat for left and right hand needle swing on zigzag machines. There should be no space between the needle and the tip of the hook at this point. There may be needleguards to correct or limit this. Be aware the timing slip could just be the needle bar. Usually thst this be rotating the needlebar. If it mooves it will have slipped upward. Lower it according to the above. A n eedle always threads towards the flat on the top. nev777auau@yahoo.com.au

Hi teranm...If it is indeed a timing issue, you should use a technician to correct it. If your "someone" continues to "look at it", and begins to understand the timing process, and discovers how readily accessible the Set Screws are, they may want to chance it. But what they will not perceive until it's too late, is that on Oscillating Hooks, such as what you have, once you loosen the set screws on the Hook, you now have a Distance Issue to keep your Timing Issue company. The tolerance of distance is much more minute than timing tolerance....good luck my friend.

How do I stop my tread from popping on my Brother (17 stich) sewing machine?


Breaking thread? Presumably the top thread? AVOID old or bargain bin threads. The upper tension is too tight or the thread is not properly seated in the tension disk, the needle is defective or the needle, needle eye/scarf is not the best choice for the fabric/thread being used, there may be a snag in the bobbin area that is catching the thread. Make sure the thread is not catching on the spool's thread notch.

What does it mean when the motor jams and the needle is hitting the bobbin case?


Make sure the needle is put in the right direction and a new one. Also, check the bobbin to make sure it is one that fits properly.

Your sewing machine is likely to be out of timing. This means the needle goes under the throat plate to pick up the bottom thread but it is going at the wrong time. The bottom and top have to be synchronized. This is a problem that usually requires the replacement of gears. Anyway, it isn't a home fix problem.

My Brother LS 2160 is threaded but not stitching


Hi there Kathryn... when you load/thread the top cotton through the machine.... and then through the eye of the needle.... do you also load the bobbin case... or is it already in there and loaded as per instructions... ? What I normally do... is load up the bottom and top threads first.. making sure to put the top thread through the needle and make the thread end go through and behind the 'foot'... when placing on fabric to try... I make sure to load the fabric... with the top thread's tail going out through the presser foot and behind your foot.. sometimes.. if its the thread (some machines don't like certain threads)... I will manually (wind the right hand wheel) so that the machine does a few stitches.. before I use my foot pedal!.. I have both a serger/overlocker... and a Brother 8500 (sewing/embroidery machine).. I have been sewing for over years now...
You will need to change your needle... when you've used it for more than 6-7 hours continuously.. OR you notice that the stitches are not as they should be... in your fabric...

When the needle goes down it doesn't catch the bobbin thread till it is half way back up which pulls the thread and fabric down and jams everything up.


This happens sometimes when you have put thread on the bobbin and it wasn't tight enough. Be consistent when put thread on the bobbin. At least this has been my experience.

Thread cuts at needle immediately when starting to sew.


check the needle plate for any small burrs
also on the bobbin & bobbin case
is the needle the correct one for the fabric being sewed?

Why does the thread not catch when sewing? Someone told me it could be that the bobbin wasn't done right and suggest me doing it on a separate machine.


have you tried changing the
1.thread or rethreading the machine
2.needle--is it the correct needle for the fabric & thread

it's also possible the machine could be out of time, & would have to be serviced by a sewing tech with the tool to retime

I am sewing through 4 layers of fabric and the needle isn't going through and catching the bobbin thread. What should I adjust? It was working fine through 2 layers of fabric.


The reason it is not sewing is because when the needle goes through the 4 layers of fabric the thread from the needle is not abloe to form a loop for the hook to catch, try turn the tension down a bit.

NEEDLE KEEPS COMING UNTHREADED WILL NOT CATCH IN FABRIC


Make sure you are threading the machine correctly and it has the proper tension. Also check the bobbin the thread has to go thru the little lash
