The bobbin assembly came out and when we put it back the bobbin thread would not engage with the top


Verify the bobbin has been installed and threaded correctly through the bobbin case. Confirm the bobbin is installed turning the correct direction. Install a brand new needle.

My Juki LU-563 stopped picking up the bobbin thread, changed needle, took out bobbincase to look for thread, none, still won't sew because of bobbin thread not being picked up.


If you've properly installed a brand new needle that is correct for the machine, threaded it correctly, checked that the bobbin is installed correctly and the bobbin tension threaded properly, most likely the machine is out of time. In other words, the needle is arriving at the bobbin at the wrong time in order to intercept the bobbin. (You can open the bobbin area, hand rotate the handwheel and watch how and where the needle moves in relation to the bobbin to see where and why it is not connecting.) You can search the internet for web sites and videos that discuss machine timing or you can take it for service.

My upper thread wont pick up the bobbin thread suddenly. How do I fix that problem?


Install a brand new needle. A bent/dull/damaged needle sometimes will not pick up bobbin thread.

Check that the needle is installed facing the correct direction.

Also check that the bobbin is wound smoothly, the bobbin is turning the correct direction in the bobbin case, and the bobbin tension is threaded correctly.

If it still will not pick up the bobbin thread, there is most likely a timing issue, ie the needle is arriving at the wrong time to intercept the bobbin thread. Search the internet for sewing machine timing discussions or take it for service.

My brother vx-1120 needle wont pick up bobbin thread to make a continuous stitch


Install a brand new needle. Make sure it is installed correctly.

Remove the bobbin/bobbin case from the machine. Check that the bobbin is turning the correct direction and the bobbin tension is threaded correctly. Reinstall the bobbin case and confirm that it is latched into place.

Retest your machine. Slowly turn the handwheel and watch the needle descend and see if it picks up the bobbin thread. If not, then there is probably a sewing machine timing issue. Take it for service.

My 532 wont pick up cotton from bobbin


First, install a brand new needle. Used/worn/bent needles will sometimes fail to pick up the bobbin thread.

Make sure the bobbin is installed correctly in the bobbin case.

If it still will not pick up the bobbin thread, most likely the machine is out of time (the needle arrives at the incorrect time to intercept the bobbin thread). Take it for service or search the internet for web sites or videos dealing with sewing machine timing.

The bobbin thread will not pick up. How do I fix it?


First, install a brand new needle and verify that it is facing the correct way and it is the proper needle for your machine.

Confirm the bobbin has been installed in the bobbin case so it is unwinding the bobbin the proper direction as you pull the bobbin thread.

Six Common Sewing Machine Problems Solved

If it still will not pick up the bobbin thread, open the bobbin area of the machine and watch the needle action as you hand-turn the handwheel. You may see why it is not picking up the thread because the needle could be arriving too soon or too late to intercept the bobbin thread. If this is happening, the needle/hook is out of time. Take it for service.

What can i do when the top thread is caught on the bobbin race and loops there?


1. There are many bobbin cases. Make sure the right one is installed. Also, once you have it installed check the handle of the bobbin case to make sure it is going flat with the bobbin case.
2. Check the bobbin you are using. If it is too long it will protrude the length of the bobbin case. It must be able to spin freely.
3. Check the bobbin case on the outside for any rough edges that could hang up on thread.
4. The bobbin tension should be checked. I've attached a guide for this. Your's is the older style.
5. Make sure the top is threaded properly. Especially make sure the thread is going through the thread in the right direction.

My machine is sewing with the bobbin thread on the top, it seems to be reversed. How do I fix this?


Bobbin is installed backwards. Check the rotation of the thread when you install the bobbin. look at the picture on the machine. In most cases you can just flip the bobbin over. hope this was helpful

The machine stopped sewing, the top thread doesn't pick up the bobbin thread, even when I just installed a new bobbin and try to just run the machine by hand to pick up the bobbin thread.


Have installed your bobbin right? By this, I mean drop the bobbin in but make sure that you pull the thread through the tension spring by putting your finger to hold the bobbin in place, then pull on the thread to get the tension. Let me know if this works.
