This is really one for an engineer. It involves loosening the bobbin race and moving it slightly till the hook catches the thread,and then retightening. Can be an awkward job requiring 3 hands,even for an expert!

My thread is not catching with bobbin thread


Be sure to use a brand new needle. A bent/damaged needle may not connect with the bobbin thread.

If it still does not pick up the bobbin thread, your machine most likely has a timing issue (the needle arrives at the wrong time to intercept the bobbin thread). There are multiple web sites and videos that discuss sewing machine timing. Or take it for service.

If you are sure that you are using the correct needles and they are
correctly inserted, have the timing of the bobbin case checked on your
machine.

The main thread is not catching the bobbin thread


It looks like your timing of your bobbin hook is out you will need to have a service man adjust it for you.

Bobbin case catching-tangling thread


It sounds to me that you might have the wrong type of bobbin in the case. The top of the bobbin should not be higher than the case. Thread will slip through the space and cause problems. Also unevenly wound bobbins will also cause this symptom.
Or your losing tension which you will have to adjust tighter.

Won't catch bobbin thread


In order to see whether or not my euro-pro 9110 had a timing issue, the service rep had me change out the needle (making sure I was using anything but a Singer brand needle--they do not work in these machines). I re-threaded the needle, took out the bobbin casing and the plastic ring encasing the bobbin, then lowered the needle to see if the hook on the metal ring holding the bobbin actually catches the thread on its own. If it doesn't catch, it's a timing issue and needs repair. They can walk you through this process of troubleshooting and set up repair if need. Call Eruo-Pro's customer service center for sewing machine service and repair at 800-798-7395
