Here are my suggestions, if none of them help then the machine
needs to be checked for a timing problem

try changing the needle ---make sure it's the right needle for the fabric
being sewed.--make sure the needle is inserted all the way into the
needle holder--and also make sure the needle is turned the right
way.

rethread the machine --top and bobbin

make sure to use every thread guide

make sure the bobbin is turned the right way in the bobbin case

if the machine is a front or side loading bobbin make sure the bobbin
case is inserted correctly

My bottom thread wont pull out once the cover is closed and the thread is pulled through and ready to sew.


If the top thread is not pulling up the bobbin thread, is it actually catching the bobbin thread? If not, then the machine may be out of time. Search for sewing machine timing or take it for service.

If it catches the bobbin thread but then the bobbin thread is difficult to pull, then possibly there is a snag somewhere that is catching the bobbin thread, the bobbin tension needs adjustment, or the bobbin case is incorrectly threaded.

Why does my thread keep bunching up?


That is called "thread nesting," and several things can cause it. The upper thread enters the bobbin area during sewing, catches the bobbin thread, and as the needle goes up, pulls the stitch tight. Something is catching the upper thread as it goes around. The most common reasons are the bobbin or bobbin case (or both) is improperly inserted; the bobbin is warped (roll it down a flat surface--if it wobbles, it's warped), either the case or the bobbin is not seated evenly, there is a rough spot on the bobbin case that is catching the thread, or your bobbin is loosely/badly wound. You need to rule out the possibilities step by step until you find the cause. First, review your threading procedures from start to finish, using your user's manual. Then, without fabric, turn the hand wheel by hand (ALWAYS towards you) to see if you can see it start to catch. The top thread should rotate smoothly in the bobbin area. You should be able to pin-point the cause that way.

Bobbin is not catching thread


NOTE TO THE QUESTION. Bobbins do not catch thread. A hook underneath when you use the wheel to advance the machine will come and catch the under thread OR BOBBIN THREAD and pull it up.
Something common and I do it, wrong bobbin in the bottom thread. I have 2 sewing machines so put thread on both plastic and metal bobbins and then just grab the wrong machine bobbin.
If this is not the issue, take the machine apart and clean it well. Note the spots that you are to oil SPARINGLY.

Why won't my needle catch the bobbin thread


this happens to me when i have put my bobbin in upside down (i know sounds nuts) but yes it is possible for it to be in wrong, take it out and turn it over make sure you feed the thread as shown on your machine ...pull the needle thread tight and turn it will catch if its the right way up and threaded right...good luck

Upper thread is not catching bobbin thread


Carmen, seem that you have carried out the necessary rectification, but could it be your rotary hook tip blunt/broken, if not most probably it needs needle/hook timing adjustment. And this will require your sewing machine technician to do it.

Janome 3000 bobbin thread will not catch. It just quit while I was sewing. I've cleaned the bobbin case and anything else I could but when I put the needle down the thread does not circle the b


try changing the needle
rethread the machine top & bobbin
make sure to use every thread guide
make sure the bobbin is not over wound
make sure the bobbin is turned the right way in the bobbin case
make sure the bobbin is not warped or damaged
if you've done all these things then it's also possible that the machine
is out of time & needs to be checked at a repair shop

I cant get my bobbin to thread i have followed all the instructions it seems that the needle just isnt picking it up


Try to adjust the needle , enough to catch the bobbins thread and not too close to avoid breakage. The needle might be in a higher setting.

I cannot get the needle to catch the bobbin thread


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
