Question about Brother XL-5500 Mechanical Sewing Machine
The needle isn't catching the bobbin thread at all, does anyone have any solutions? I have rethreaded from restart, tried new thread and bobbin and checked direction of bobbin.
Did you change the needle? If that doesn't solve the problem then it's probably out of time. Take it in for repair.

sounds like your keeping the upper thread too tight when you drop your needle down to catch the bobbin or the bobbin thread that you left hang out is too short, let me know if it works amy

The tread only breaks in the needle. what can i do . i don't get to sew anything . I tread the needle and get everything ready and start the machine and as quickly as that the tread is broken and the machine has not sewn at all.

SOURCE: The bobbin thread is not
try a new needle
make sure the bobbin is not warped
make sure the bobbin case area is free of lint or loose thread
make sure you hold the upper thread tail while it's going down to pick up the bobbin thread
make sure there is a 2 to 4 in tail for the upper thread to grab

You need to sew the first stitch slowly. Lower the needle by hand and take up carefully. Pull the needle thread up and the bobbin thread should be caught in the formed loop and come with it. Pull them both to the back of the machine and sew.
