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.

Won't catch bobbin thread


hi Shauna.
this is all i could find out from the internet.
Make sure the presser foot is up when seating the thread through the upper tension. Now, it's time to draw up your bobbin thread. Turn the hand wheel (TOWARDS YOU ONLY, never turn the hand wheel away from you) and hold the needle thread lightly. Tug on it as the needle goes down and then comes up again.
if this is off no help to you go to this link and see if its any good to you.

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.

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.
