Question about Brother LS-2125 Mechanical Sewing Machine

1 Answer

No lower thread

When I sew, the machine is not picking up the thread in the bobbin. I think it is in there correctly, and I pulled the bobbin thread through the machine, under the foot.

Make sure your needle is in correctly...flat side to the back and that it is not bent or damaged. Make sure to double check the thread is going through the tension in the bobbin case before inserting the case into the machine.

I have a euro pro shark sewing machine. I just changed the thread for another project and cannot get the needle to pick up the bobbin thread. Any ideas?


Try installing a brand new needle. Bent/damaged needles will sometimes not pick up the bobbin thread.

Make sure the machine is threaded correctly. Check the bobbin--ie, it is turning the correct direction in the bobbin case and is threaded properly through the bobbin tension.

You might also try pulling the bobbin thread up to the top before beginning to stitch.

The needle with top thread couldn't draw the bottom thread from the bobbin to ready the machine for sewing


Are you saying that the upper thread is not pulling the bobbin thread up to the top?

Install a brand new needle.

Remove the thread. RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning--allows the thread to seat completely in the upper tension disk.

Check that the bobbin thread is inserted in the bobbin case facing the correct direction and that the bobbin case is threaded correctly through the bobbin case tension. Be sure to leave at least a 6" tail of thread on both the upper and lower threads.

Retest.

If it is still not picking up the bobbin thread, the bobbin case may be defective/malfunctioning or your machine probably needs professional service.

The needle is not picking up the lower thread, I have cleaned the machine but the bobbin is not being picked up


Doesn't pick up bobbin thread
1. The bobbin may be in backwards.
2. The bobbin thread & top thread need to be pulled to the back before starting the stitching
3. You need a ballpoint rather than universal needle to sew on t-shirt knits.
4. the needle is in the machine backwards
5. Make sure the needle is the correct one for the fabric being sewed
6. Needle inserted wrong in the needle holder
7. Warped needle
8. Warped bobbin
9. Also could be a timing problem

How would to insert the bobbin in the sewing machine brother VX 1400?


There is not much of a secret to inserting a bobbin in a sewing machine. A couple of things to check, the thread from the bobbin should be pulled through the slot of the carrier, and make sure the thread comes through the sewing hole by manually lowering the threaded needle and then lifting it out of the hole again after it has picked up the thread from the bobbin. The video link posted below is useful if you have a Brother sewing machine.
If the stitching is still not right then check that the needle is fully inserted in its housing. (Push the needle up as far as it will go then tighten the screw.)

The upper thread will not pick up the bobbin thread


You should do this by putting very slight pressure on the foot control (or turning the wheel by hand) with the machine's pressure foot up. Then pull the threads by hand to the back of the machine. If the upper thread does not catch the lower thread then the bobbin is not correctly threaded in the bobbin case.

Lil sew & sew lss202 bobbin threading?


Drop bobbin in carrier such that the thread and bobbin form "P". When you pull on thread the bobbin unwinds counter clockwise. Lay loose thread in groove on plate coming toward front of machine. Replace cover. Rotate hand wheel towards you to pick up thread. Pull upper and lower threads to rear of machine under presser foot.

I have a Brother sewing machine and whenever I try to pick up the bottom thread (or when I try to sew), the upper thread gets caught around the bobbin case causing a huge, knotted mess. It's just all...


Check your top tension dial setting is on 5, as this sounds like the thread is not in tension fully so is looping up around the rotary hook and not being held back by the tension device. Is the pressure foot lowered (this turns the tension on) fully and is the thread through the tension discs correctly. Lower the pressure foot and pull the top thread from below the tension dial, it should feel firm to pull, if it comes out easy, its not undertension, device could be faulty and machine will need to be serviced.

Also, check that the bobbin case is fully inserted into the rotary hook in the correct position, bobbin is in and rotating the right way and thread is into the tension spring fully.

If you have the manual pull it out, and carefully check the threading up instructions and follow on your machine - it is probably one of these things causing the jamming.

My bobbin thread will not thread. When I bring the needle down, it comes up without the bobbin thread. The mechanism moves, but no thread. How do I fix this problem?


check the bobbin to make sure it's not warped
check the needle to make sure it's not bent-roll on flat surface to see if it roll correctly
make sure the bobbin is in the bobbin case correctly
make sure you have a 3 to 4 inch tail on the bobbin-so the upper thread can pick it up easily
make sure you have a 3 to 4 inch tail on upper thread also as it picks up the lower thread
or you can hold the upper thread with your hand to the side of the machine & use the handwheel to lower the needle as it picks up the lower thread
pull both threads to the back behind the needle
make sure there is no lint or loose threads in the bobbin area
