Make sure you are threaded correctly. Also be sure that your bobbin is sitting in the casing correctly. If the timing is right and the hook is catching, the thread may not be pulling through correctly. Clean your machine as well. Make sure your tension spring is clean and doesn't need to be tuned up.

I have a hyundai 8 stitch sewign machine been working brillant but last night it kept missing the tread and the thread breaking or jabbing . today looking at it i see when it jabs the Bobbin Case Inner...


The top thread breaks

1. the needle thread is not threaded properly

2. The needle thread tension is to tight

3. The needle is bent or blunt

4. The needle is incorrectly inserted

5. The needle thread & the bobbin thread are not set under the presser foot when starting to sew

6. the threads were not drawn to the rear after sewing

7. The thread is either to heavy or to fine for the needle

8. Try a different spool or cone of thread


Bobbin thread breaks


1. There is a right way & wrong way to insert the bobbin in the case --when you insert the bobbin in if it doesn't stitch correctly turn the bobbin over see if that helps or bobbin case is not inserted correctly


2. Lint has collected in the bobbin holder


3. The bobbin is damaged & doesn't turn smoothly


4. Lower thread tension is two tight

if the sewing machine has a top loading bobbin, you may have to have the sewing machine checked to see if there is something wrong with the bobbin case or the hook and hook race.
I suggest try a new needle--one for the fabric being sewed
also try another bobbin
rethread the sewing machine top and bobbin, using every thread guide.

My New Home skips stitches. I have cleaned it, changed needles, adjusted the tension and tried different bobbins .



Skipped stitches

1. The needle is not inserted correctly

Remove needle & reinsert needle( flat side towards the back of machine)

2. The needle is damaged

replace with new needle

3. The wrong size needle is being used

Choose a needle to suit the thread & fabric

4. The foot not attached correctly

Check & attach correctly

it's also possible that the machine could be slightly out of time

Bobbin shuttle


1. Clean shuttle with your sewing machine brush to remove old broken threads, lint, and sweep out the feed dogs carefully. 2. Rethread making sure you have the handwheel turned toward you, all the way up. 3. Lift presser foot up BEFORE you put thread front to back in eye needle. 4. Set machine on straight stitch sewing. Attach straight stitch foot if necessary. 5. Make sure 5-6 inches of thread are pulled toward you from threaded needle. 6. Pull up bobbin thread. 7. Pull 5-6 inches of bobbin thread and put it, along with needle thread under presser foot. 8. Put fabric scrap under presser presser foot and LOWER it now. Make sure, too, that the needle is correct size for fabric you're sewing. 9. Do a test. You may need to set tension at 4, stitch length at about 4 and width at 6. Just test it and adjust tension in very, very short turns. Another tip: Put one drop of good quality sewing machine oil on the hook, lower left-hand side. Make sure when you thread bobbin in the bobbin case to hold bobbin between thumb and forefinger and pull out about 4 inches of thread after you make sure thread unwinds top left (if you are right-handed!). Guide the thread into the slot in edge of bobbin case (screw sits on top of this "edge". Pull thread under tension spring and then into the delivery eye. Never panic, my friend! Try this and see if this helps. You should probably insert new needle too--just in case "old" one bent. Jimmy

I have a brother ls-2125 sewing machine. the upper thread is not catching the bobbin thread properly. help please


  1. Tension
    • Your sewing machine tension controls the rate at which the thread is fed through either the upper section of your machine or through the bobbin case. If your upper or bobbin threads aren't threading properly, sometimes adjusting the tension will correct this problem.
    Timing
    • Your sewing machine works by passing the upper thread through the needle of the sewing machine at precisely the same time the bobbin brings its thread to its uppermost position. If either the needle or the bobbin thread reach these positions too soon or too late, the threads won't interact and create the knots that make the seam. You can throw off your timing by sewing too many layers of fabric or hitting a pin with your needle. See you sewing machine repair facility to correct any timing issues.
    Thread
    • Thread can get snagged or caught in the upper section of your machine or on lint pieces in the lower bobbin section. If your threads aren't catching properly, you may be able to fix it by unthreading and rethreading both your upper thread and bobbin threads.

Brother pe 150 needle wont pick up thread from bobbin changed needle


Check that the needle is in the right way, flat shank to the back. If it is around backwards, the shuttle hook won't be catching the thread at the back of the needle to form the stitch.

My bobbin thread won't pull up. I tried what was listed to do, but it didn't work. Please help me~!!


Here are some things to check:

1. check the threading and tension of the top thread. It may look like it's threaded correctly but not be. When you pull on the thread is there some tension but still pulls out? Make sure it isn't catching somewhere on the path. Also make sure it's not too loose. If it's too loose it won't be able to pull the bobbin thread up enough.

2. check the bobbin threading and tension. Does it have some give but not reel out a ton? Is it catching? Is the bobbin in all the way - hear a click when inserting it?

3. Do you have the right needle for the machine? Is it inserted correctly? Try sewing through ordinary cotton first. Is it stitching? If so then you may not have the correct needle size for what you are trying to sew through.

Not catching stitches / bobbin correctly


When you broke the needle I think you have moved the shaft that brings the needle down ,you can adjust it !

If it was sewing correctly BEFORE the needle break...why did the needle break in the first place?...and what fixes did you make?
If it sewed properly...what changed?

Cut your upper thread close to the spool...make sure the presser foot is raised and pull the cut off thread section through/out of the machine from the needle area (sewing direction...do not pull the thread backwards!)

Clean out the bobbin area...remove any traces of lint or pieces of thread...look for any broken off needle pieces... brush the bobbin area out....then add a drop of sewing machine oil (but only if your manual says to oil that area).

Remove the needle plate to expose the feed dogs...brush/clean out that area too and add a drop of sewing machine oil...then secure the needle plate back on.
Replace the needle...do it again...yup...some needles arrive bad from the factory. Make sure the needle is inserted and positioned properly. Then thread the machine WITH the presser foot in raised position. (The thread needs to get seated into the upper tensions.)
..with the.presser foot down...thread the new needle.
Oh...and use the correct needle for the thread. (a universal 80/12 is standard).
Thread can cause issues too. Try a different bobbin, or maybe a different spool of thread to see if that makes a difference.
