Remove the bobbin. Thread your top thread just as normal. Now turn the wheel toward you and watch the area where the bobbin normally be. You should notice a sharp object (hook) pick up that thread just as you continue to turn the wheel. If it doesn't pick it up then the needle and hook aren't meeting at just the right time. This will mean that your machine needs to be timed.

Make sure the needle is threaded properly. If the thread is going through the needle in the wrong direction, the thread won't be picked up.

Open up the bobbin case and remove the bobbin and case. There may be something catching on the hook (random thread) that is preventing the motion. The bobbin case could be off-kilter as well. If that is not it, take the cover off the sewing head and see what is blocking the mechanical parts of the levers.

Bottom thread not catching with top thread


The first thing you need to do is change needles, then check to make sure that the end of the needle is all the way up in the needle clamp, with the flat part against the BACK of the machine. The needle you're using may be bent or inserted too low, and that will cause the upper thread from not being able to catch the bottom thread.

If you do that and it still doesn't catch, your timing is off and will need to be corrected by a technician; however, it does not have to be an authorized Singer technician; it's a very common adjustment that any technician can do. I believe Sears services all machines. The most common reason for the timing to go off is by turning the hand wheel repeatedly away from you. ALWAYS turn it towards you, and ALWAYS thread your machine with the presser foot UP.

On a Singer Quantum 9940, the upper thread will not 'catch' the bobbin thread. What should I try to do?


Make sure that your needle is all the way up. With many needle clamps, loosening it enough to remove a needle is not enough to insert one -- you have to loosen it a little bit more. You can determine that by looking right above the clamp on the shaft -- there is what looks like a grey bar and the end of the needle should be right under it. If your needle is too low, it will not catch the thread.
