My Prolectrix 8 stitch Sewing Machine bobbin won't spin. Please I need help to fix the problem.

The bobbin in my machine won't spin at all. I haven't tried to oil it because I do not know where r how to do that. Is there a way I could fix that myself?

SOURCE: problems with prolectrix sewin machine

you have to make sure the bobbin thread is positioned right in the middle. When the needle comes down (into the bobbin compartment), you can peer into the bobbin compartment and see a loop of thread (coming out of the needle). You want to catch that bobbin (thread) in the loop of thread (that runs from the needle).

SOURCE: Won't pick up bobbin thread

Does she have the right needle in? If the needle is to short it won't pick up the thread. If that is not the issue than it could be timing

Sounds like the take-up lever is not threaded.

Remove the thread from the machine, turn the handwheel until the take-up lever is at its highest position, raise the presser foot and rethread the machine. Set the upper tension dial to 5 and retry.

SOURCE: Bobbin unravelling on prolectrix 8 stitch sewing machine

did you put the bobbin thread in the tensioner? that would be the cut in the side of the bobbin case to pull the thread under the tensioner. if not it will cause problems. but if the top thread is looking good then the top thread is the problem, thread the machine with the presser foot up to let the thread into the tensioner, if it looks good on the top and not the bottom it is the upper thread if it looks good on the bottom and not the top it is the lower thread

This is a toy really, so if it did not come with a manual, suggest you ask where you bought it...but it may never have had one, there seems no reference to them anywhere I can see.

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.
