Make sure your bobbin case is in correctly. If not, the thread won't loop around for the top thread to pick it up.

First thing to do is fit a BRAND NEW needle - ensure it is the correct type AND that it has been fitted facing the correct direction. Next recheck thread path - use a QUALITY thread (not a cheapie). Esure that the bobbin has been wound on tightly (should not feel spongy when pressed with your nail) and that the bobbin has been inserted correctly into the bobbin case (can go two ways, but the thread will not be feeding correctly unless the bobbin is in the correct way. Still not picking up? .... remove the shuttle hook from the machine and check VERY carefully for ANY slight burring on the hook point, or anywhere along the edges of the hook behind the point. If there are any, they will need to be carefully removed using 400 or finer wet and dry abrasive. None of these solve the issue, then it most likely is timing or the clearance between the needle scarf and the hook - both best done by a technician as part of a routine service :)

SOURCE: The needle thread will not pick up the bobbin thread

It looks right but its not. Try looking on the internet for threading instructions. The bobbin winds in two directions, I have never saw a Bernina but I have 2 new machines and the thread goes in and then threads back to the left. Its hard to describe. But if the bobbin isn't right it will not pick up the thread. Write to Bernina for instructions. There are websites that have the directions for free.

SOURCE: Top thread won't pick up the bobbin thread

re insert the needle, maybe you did not put the needle up as far as it is to go. Make sure the flat side of the needle is to the back of the machine. Without any thread in the machine hand turn the wheel and look to see if the hook of your bobbin would/could catch the thread (to see if timing is right)
then thread the machine and hand turn the wheel and see what it is doing.
Your timing might be off, but I do not think that is likely. Though it is possible that when the needle fell out, it hit something hard, broke, and pushed the machine out of timing. then you need to bring it in.

SOURCE: will not pick up bobbin thread

Unusual for this machine. Check to be sure the needle is inserted with the flat side to the back of the machine. If it is, remove the needle plate, bobbin and bobbin case. Turn the hand wheel slowly toward you and see if the point of the hook is above or below the eye of the needle when the hook point is aligned behind the needle. If the eye is above the point of the hook the machine is out of time and best taken to qualified technician.

Thread not picking up the bottom thread


Remove the top thread from the machine.
Install a brand new needle.
ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread the top thread!

If it is still not picking up the bobbin thread, then the machine may be out of time. Search for sewing machine timing or take it for service.
Make sure the top tension is set appropriately--the default is the midway point and then tweak it for your particular machine.

Top thread not picking up bottom thread


Try installing a brand new needle. Bent or damaged needles sometimes do not contact the bobbin thread to pick it up.

Usually threading is not an issue, but you may want to rethread the machine (be sure to always RAISE the presser foot during threading).

If it still doesn't pick up the bobbin thread, most likely the needle/hook is out of time. Take it for service.

Machine saying to rethread the upper thread but not picking up bottom thread from bobbin. Constantly rethreaded upper thread still won't sew.


Consult the owner's manual to make sure it is threaded correctly. Install a brand new needle making sure it is installed properly. Also, be sure to RAISE the presser foot BEFORE threading the upper thread.

If it is still not picking up the bobbin thread, the machine may be out of time.

Beldray sewing machine won't make a stitch


try changing the needle--make sure the needle is the right one for
the fabric being sewed, and also inserted the right way in the needle
holder and all the way up into the needle holder
try rethreading the machine top and bobbin--make sure every
thread guide is used
make sure the bobbin is turned the right way in the bobbin case
if none of these suggestion help then the machine needs to be
checked to see if there is a problem with the timing.

The bottom thread is all tangled. I have


Hi! This is the machine I use (mostly) and I've found it really doesn't like lint. I brush out lint every few hours and it has made a huge difference in how my machine sews. I suspect your machine may be as sensitive to lint as my is, so give her a really good cleaning. Then, rethread (yes, I know you've done that already, but do it again, for grins.) everything. Pay careful attention to the way the bobbin thread comes off the bobbin (from left to right) when you rethread. If you usually use the automatic bobbin pickup, don't. Pick up the bobbin thread the regular way, and, holding the top thread and bobbin thread securely in your left hand, start to sew.
I sure hope this helps!
Please let me know if this works, ok?

I have been using the zig zag stitch for appliques and all of a sudden the bottom thread which is a different color is showing on the top. I have rethreaded top and bottom threads, changed needles, cleaned...


it sounds like no bobbin thread tension. there should be some resistance when you pull on the bobbin thread. if there is none or too little you may have some lint or thread caught behind the bobbin case tension spring.

very carefully try and push the tip of a thin pin into the bobbin case tension spring and pick any accumulated thread or lint out.

if the bobbin case spring is clean, try tightening the bobbin tension a little at a time until your zig zag looks ok.

of-course all this is done after checking needle threading and needle for damage.

Have you tried a new needle?

If re-threading, changing the brand of thread, etc. does not work, then it's likely your machine is out of time. Search for sewing machine timing or take it for service.

Machine won't sew


Change the needle and be sure the flat side is to the back. Rethread the machine. Remove and reinsert the bobbin. Hold the top thread and turn the handwheel to see it the top thread will pick up the bobbin. If yes, it should sew ; if not, it is probably out of time and needs to be seen by a technician.
