SOURCE: The knob on wheel stuck.

Remove the needle, and place a screwdriver or something like it under the needle bar to keep the wheel from turning.
Wrap the knob in some type of fabric to keep it from being marred.
Using channel locks or water pump pliers, grasp the knob and turn it to the left. It should come loose. Once it is loosened, try it 2 or 3 times to make sure it works as it should.
Wind the bobbin, insert a new needle and have fun again.

Check the needle to be sure it is installed with the flat side facing the back of the machine.

Check the needle to be sure it is not bent.

SOURCE: Brother VX 1100 will not pick up bobbin

Replace the new needle, making sure the flat side is to the back of the machine.

Hold on to the top thread as the needle lowers and raises.

If it does not catch the bobbin thread, the timing may need adjusted.

You can find a graphic for adjusting the timing at sewusa.com, or take the machine in for service.

SOURCE: Brother VX-1120- The needle is not picking up bobbin thread.

I had the same problem with my brother vx-1120 sewing machine. I set the needle to lowest position by using the hand crank. Then I loosened the knerled set screw that holds needle in place. Then I moved needle shaft till the eye of needle is just lower than the hook on the shuttle loop maker. It made my mechine work. There are instuctions for ajusting timing on machine but I think these mechines are built to not fix and throw out. Just because there where no ajustment marks at all on machine, any machanical machine will needed to be ajusted sometime.

Brother 1100, was sewing , now it is froze, cant turn the wheel far either way, cleaned, wants to go but is stuck, I cant see any thread in bobbin plate but I think that is where issue is advise


You could check the bobbin winder shaft. If this is engaged the machine appears to have frozen while turned on. Move the bobbin winder shaft left, then right while checking the foot controller and you will soon know if this is the problem.

The Balance Wheel and the Clutch Release knob will not tighten together again after filling a bobbin. How do I fix this?


THERE IS A SMALL SCREW AT THE MIDDLE KNOB ON THE HAND WHEEL THAT YOU NEED TO LOOSEN. AFTER THAT TIGHTEN THE HAND WHEEL KNOB JUST AS YOU WOULD WHEN YOU ARE GOING TO SEW. NOW, TIGHTEN THE SMALL SCREW. YOUR MACHINE SHOULD BE OK FOR SEWING AND YOUR BOBBIN WINDING.

I cannot loosen stop motion knob so that I can wind a bobbin.


Sometimes the knob locks so tight it requires a good strong beefy man to loosen it. Turn it counter clockwise!! You can also wind without loosening the knob, just MAKE SURE to unthread the machine and to sew for winding only. It works for all industrial machines, without loosening the knob.

Just bought my used Bernina 1010;it was sold to me


Heat the wheel with a hair dryer to loosen. If this does not help, you will need to visit an authorized Bernina dealer.

Clutch Release Problem


You will need to remove the clutch release knob and the 3 eared positioner (the clutch) under that knob. Reposition the clutch on the shaft, put the knob back on and see if you can put the screw back in the hole. If it hits something, remove the knob, remove the clutch and turn it 180 degrees. This will reposition the ears. Put the clutch back on the shaft, put the knob back on the shaft and screw the screw into the hole. Test to be sure the knob releases the hand wheel to wind the bobbin.Be sure the thread is under the thread guide when you wind the bobbin and that there is a slight tension on it.

I have only a cheap one (VX-1100), but when this is happening on mine, the stop-motion knob isn't fully engaged with the balance wheel. They are held together by one being tightened to the other for sewing, loosened for bobbin winding. Michael
