Are you holding the end of the top thread whilst trying to pickup the bobbin thread? Put a BRAND NEW needle in - it may look OK, buy the slightest bend will be an issue. Is it the CORRECT needle for you machine? - check your manual. Is the bobbin in the case correctly and feeding out the correct direction? ...... timing may be out. Good luck

SOURCE: Not picking up the Bobbin thread

I cleaned the machine good with canned air, oiled it. I took out the bobbin case and cleaned it good also. I then noticed the tension screw on the bobbin case was loose, tightened it and the problem was fixed.

SOURCE: Not picking up the Bobbin thread

Sounds like you have to take off the throat plate and clean out threads under it.  Sometime they ball up and prevent the needle from going down and catching the bobbin thread. You can't see themuntil you take off the plate.  Follow the directions.  It is easy.

Model 4075 white sewing machine thread from bobbin builds up and stops sewing.


Check the stitching and confirm that it is in fact bobbin thread and not the top thread that is creating knots & loops under the fabric. This is usually the case and is called thread nests or bird nests. (You can search the internet for more information about this symptom.)

Install a brand new needle.
Remove the thread from the machine.
ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot while rethreading the upper thread.
Confirm the thread path is correct.
Verify the bobbin is installed facing the correct direction in the bobbin case and the bobbin case is threaded properly.

Set the upper tension to the midway point (factory standard) although it may need to be tweaked as machines change with use and time.

Pull up the bobbin thread. This method works with general sewing projects, not just quilting.
How and Why to Bring up the Bobbin Thread

Begin to test sew slowly.

If the thread is still making a mess, then the machine most likely has a timing issue. There are multiple web sites and videos that discuss sewing machine timing. Or take it for service.

Model 4075 white sewing machine problem with thread from bobbin


1. Replace thread with good thread. (Check by holding to light to see if there is fuzz).
2. Adjust the bobbin tension. The tension on top is set to three and the bobbin tension should be equal to this amount.
3. Replace needle.
4. Check the top tension with tension foot down to see if the thread can move or does it get stuck? If it gets stuck the tension control may need adjusted or cleaned.
5. Pull the bobbin thread above the throat plate and pull on the thread. It must have some tension but not get stuck.
TENSION TENSION TENSION IS THE PROBLEM!

I need help with a white sewing machine model 765 I can't get it to sew it doesn't pick up the bobbin thread


First thing to try is a brand new needle. A bent/damaged needle may not be able to pick up the bobbin thread.

Otherwise, it is possible it has a timing issue, ie the needle is arriving at the bobbin at the wrong time in order to connect with the bobbin thread. Search the internet web sites and videos. There is a lot of information on how to fix sewing machine timing. Or take it for service.

Why won't my new home super stretch stitch model-844 pick up bobbin thread to sew manual book


If you need a manual, search the internet for:

Make + Model + the word "Manual"

or contact the manufacturer.

Try installing a brand new needle. A bent needle sometimes will not connect properly. Be sure that both upper and bobbin threads are threaded correctly.

On the other hand, the needle/hook could be out of time. You can check that by hand turning the handwheel and watching the needle/hook movement. There are a multitude of web sites and videos that discuss timing. Or--check with a sewing machine technician.

Then hold the top thread tail with your fingers (away from the needle)

Lower the needle in the bobbin area & see if the bobbin thread will pick
Up that way

The bobbin thread will not pick up. The machine had jammed and I forced the wheel and can't get bobbin thread to pick up. When I thread manually, I only get holes, no stitches. Is it a timing belt?


check your needle to see if it's bent---roll on flat surface to see if it roll correctly
on some sewing machines when the thread comes off the thread take up lever it can cause the machine to jam
also if the bobbin thread becomes tangled it can jam
check the bobbin area for lint or loose threads
try having a top thread tail & bobbin thread tail of 3-4 inches
try holding the top thread tail & turn the handwheel on the right side on the machine manually & put the needle down into the bobbin area & see if the bobbin thread will pick up that way
