HI Elizabeth.
Found this on the internet.
There could be several things that could cause the machine not to pick up the bobbin thread.

  • The upper thread could be tangled.
    Remove the thread completely from the machine.
    The correct size spool cap should be used for the size of the thread spool.
    Re-thread the machine according to the directions in the manual.

  • Remove the bobbin and make sure the bobbin is threaded properly in the shuttle race.
    Remove any loose threads or lint in the shuttle race.
One Point Advice Installing a bobbin into a bobbin case
  • You could be holding the needle thread too tight.
    Hold the thread lightly to keep the end from going down into the shuttle.
  • The needle could be thread incorrectly.
    Thread the needle eye from the front to the back.
  • The needle could be bent or improperly inserted.
    Install a new needle with the flat side of the needle facing the back.

The bobbin thread isn't being taken


You state that the bobbin thread is not being picked up by the needle, have you had one or two jams whilst sewing if so then I'm 99% sure you have knocked the cotton pick up hook out of timing potion, the shuttle bobbin sits in the hook case and as the hook rotates in the correct rotation the needle is at it's lowest point and at the same time the pick up hook should just about to go behind the needle as it starts to rise and it's at this point on the way up that the bobbin thread is being picked up, so if the timing as been knocked out of potion it as to be rotate with a little force whilst holding the and wheel and the needle in it's lowest position so that the hook is just and only just going behind the needle and that's it give it a run, normally I would say slacken the clamp screws that secure the hook assembly onto it's shaft, but you can usually get away without doing this it saves time and hassle. Hope you can understand what I have put down as instructions for resetting the hook if it's the case of being out of position.
Happy Sewing

The needle won't pick up the bobbin thread? Seems


I think you mean the shuttle is not picking up the top thread. There are many reasons why this can happen. The best way to find out which is to leave the cover off the bobbin compartment and turn the machine slowly by hand while watching things happen for a few cycles - best to have a piece of material in place as well (but not in your line of sight).
As the needle begins to rise, the top thread should form a loop for the shuttle to pick up. If no loop forms, the needle could be too fat for the thread, the thread could be sticking to the needle, the pick-up arm could be out of time (unlikely), or the thread tension could be wrong (or the machine not threaded correctly).
If a loop forms, but the shuttle does not pick up up, the needle could be bent (take it off and roll it on a flat surface),or in backwards (loop forming opposite to shuttle), or the material (or your manner of feeding it) causing the needle to be deflected away from the shuttle. On some machines, it is also possible to loosen a clamp and move the shuttle closer to the needle, but obviously that is a last resort (unless it has come loose or been forced away).
There are other possibilities, but usually it's the simplest thing. Try changing the needle?

The thread is bunching under the fabric even though the stitch looks perfectly find from the top


Change needle-flat side to the back of the machine
Clean under needle plate where feed dogs are for lint
Clean bobbin area for lint or loose threads
Rethread machine top thread make sure to get every thread guide
& make sure bobbin is wound correctly & that it is inserted correctly in the bobbin case or shuttle
Check tension 3 or 4 is usually good

with some machines the thread comes off the thread take up lever

If you broke a needle and cannot get it to pick up the thread from the bobbin you need to check your timing. Remove the needle plate and turn the machine over watching the needle, when it is at the bottom of its travel the hook on the shuttle should be right next to or a fraction from the needle. So that as the needle begins to move upward the hook should pass it if it passes to soon it will miss the loop of thread. Check to make sure your needle is installed all the way up in the bar. If your machine is out of time and you are fairly handy, you can retime it. There should be 2 set screws some where behind the shuttle. Loosen them, one loose and one only as loose as need be to turn the shuttle. The needle must have moved upward about 1/16 before the hook is in place to catch the loop. This can be time comsuming, and you will have trial and error. Good luck. P.S. always check for simple stuff before you go for the hard stuff.

Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. The upper thread could be tangled. Remove the thread completely from the machine. The correct size spool cap should be used for the size of the thread spool. Re-thread the machine according to the directions in the manual.

Place a spool of thread on a spool pin and check the upper threading.
Remove the bobbin and make sure the bobbin is threaded properly in the shuttle race. Remove any loose threads or lint in the shuttle race.

Also please check that the bobbin is installed in its case rightly. Needle thread is too tight. Hold the thread lightly to keep the end from going down into the shuttle.

The needle could be thread incorrectly. Thread the needle eye from the front to the back.
The needle could be bent or improperly inserted and install a new needle with the flat side of the needle facing the back.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Brother CS6000i - Needle breaking, bobbin thread not picking up


There are a few possible causes, firstly make sure you have the correct needle and it is in the correct way and make sure when you fit the needle it is pusshed all the way up into the needle holder. If the shuttle or hook is moving around the bobbin case then the timing may have been knocked out. If the it is not moving it means either the gear or belt that drives the hoo / shuttle has been damaged or broken.
