SOURCE: Bottom thread will not catch

Unplug the machine and remove the needle plate so that the bobbin case if fully exposed. Lift out the bobbin case and the cup that it sets in will be visible. Locate the "hook" on this cup. It is a finger with a sharp point at the upper edge of the cup. The hook is what grabs the thread from the needle while sewing.

  • Thread the needle.
  • Turn the handwheel by hand.
  • Watch the hook as it approaches the needle from right to left.
If the hook passes by the needle AFTER the eye of the needle is above it, you timing has slipped and the machine must be taken in for repair.
If the hook catches the thread from the needle, put everything back together and try threading again.

SOURCE: Not catching stitches / bobbin correctly

Your timing has been messed up by breaking the needle.  When the needle hit the bobbin race, it shoved the needle bar up and now the needle is not in the correct position to catch the bobbin thread when the race rotates.  The needle has a little dip in the back, called the scarf.  When you take the neddle plate off and watch it move, you should see the little hook pass through the scarf.  That's how it makes the locking stitch and picks up the bobbin thread.  Unfortunately, you will need to take this in to a dealer or service place to have them adjust the needle bar height.  It's not a complicated task so see if they can check it while you wait.  It may be more difficult to fix, like retiming the machine.  But it doesn't sound like you've done any major damage to the mechanism.

SOURCE: needle not picking up bottom thread

Remove the needle plate and the bobbin case.

Ensure that the needle is inserted all the way up into the needle clamp.

Set the machine for straight stitch, center needle position.

Slowly turn the handwheel in the normal sewing direction and observe the following hook timing setting:

When the needle reaches it's lowest point and travels up 3.5mm, the point of the hook should be directly behind the needle, or at least within 1 or 2mm.

Another view is as the hook passes the needle, it should pass the needle slightly above the eye of the needle.

If the timing looks good, use some alcohol on a bit of cloth to clean the hook, careful around the tip of the hook as it is very sharp.

If the hook timing is off, you will need to take it to a knowledgeable service person as there are several possible solutions and several other related adjustments which will need to be made.

I was attempting to pick up the bobbing thread, before sewing. The needle is now stuck in the down position and the handwheel is unresponsive but the motor is whirring when foot pedal is depressed.


Do not press the foot pedal. Continuing to run the motor when the machine cannot work properly could irreparably damage the motor. Unplug your machine. Cut the top thread at the needle, open the bobbin area and try to remove the bobbin case. You may have to patiently snip tangled threads, but eventually you should be able to get the bobbin case out. Once that happens, the needle will most likely be free.

Lervia KH4000 sewing machine.When a spool is inserted the needle seems to hit it and won't move. The machine has been sewing perfectly till now


The needle is hitting the bobbin case? Try a brand new needle and if that doesn't fix it, the machine's timing is probably off. Search for sewing machine timing or take it for service.

Lervia sewng machine. material wont feed through. Dogs are up but material just wont move through. needle moving freely.


Hm, could be several things. If stitches are not being formed, it could be a timing issue (the needle does not arrive at the bobbin at the correct time). Did the machine recently hit a pin or something hard? That will knock a machine out of time. There could also be a broken piece stuck that is preventing the feed dogs from operating. Thoroughly clean the machine around the bobbin area and feed dogs.

Top thread will not work ive tryed changing needles is there a special needle to use


the needle used depends on the fabric being sewed. the needle must move thru the needles eye smoothly.
make sure the machine is threaded correctly, using every thread guide
make sure also the bobbin is wound correctly and that the bobbin is inserted into the bobbin case correctly, if the bobbin is turned the wrong way the machine wil not sew
here is a link for a free manual, if you don't have one

I need help with using my Lervia Sewing Machine


Needle breakage can mean that you don't have the needle inserted correctly, you have the wrong size needle for the machine, you are pulling the fabric instead of letting the machine take it on it's own. Thread coming off the needle is usually operator error... make sure you grasp both threads as you start your seam.

Also if you are certain your needle is correct for this machine... take it in for servicing by a pro... it is likely that the needle is striking something and breaking... that means it's out of time... or perhaps a bent part.

My machine is not stiching


try changing the needle--make sure it's the right needle for the fabricdo you have a manual for the machine?
try rethreading the machine top and bobbin
if the bobbin is top loading make sure it's turned correctly
if it's front or side loading bobbin makes sure the bobbin is inserted
correctly in the bobbin case and then make sure the bobbin case is
inserted correctly into the sewing machine.
clean under the needle plate and in the bobbin area for lint
let me know if these suggestion help or not

Hi I have a Lervia KH4000 sewing machine that i have been given with no instruction manual, I have used electric sewing machines before but on this one there is no obvious place to load the bobbin, do you...


I can't get a manual to download but it looks like a front loading bobbin machine, just remove the accessory case at the front to gain access to it.

Cannot get the bobbin thread to come up with the top thread


1. Make sure the needle is up in the machine all the way.
2. Make sure the flat side of the needle is facing the rear of the machine
3. Only turn the handwheel on the side of the machine towards you, never away from you.
4.Double check your threading of the top of the machine.
5. Also make sure your using the proper needle, your machine takes the most common needle on the market but some look like it and are shorter or longer and wont work properly. Also make sure your not buying needles for a singer serger.
