SOURCE: I can't raise the bobbin thread. The needle raises before the bobbin thread can 'catch'

readjust the hook to just grab the thread loop as the needle raises it will take a few tries to get the exact setting for the hook (maybe you will see a mark on the hook shaft to show you where the hook's set screw was located before it slipped)

SOURCE: bobbin thread won't catch with needle thread

check that the needle is in the right way round i.e. with cut out on the needle facing into the machine. if this is fine then check that as the needle comes back up from the lowest point that it goes to, that the point on the bobbin case passes just above the hole in the needle, i.e. in the middle of the cut out.(if not it needs re timing) if threaded a small loop should appear at this point for the bottom bobbin to catch if not slacken the top thread and try again.

BOTTOM THREAD WONT CATCH


are you sure you have the bobbin in correctly? I mean most machines require that the bobbin un-spool in a specific direction to work properly. Also make sure your needle isn't damaged or bent and is inserted fully into the needle bar.

Good luck

How do I thread my white 765 top and bottom


The bobbin is held in a removable bobbin case. If the bobbin case is already out of the machine, place the bobbin in the bobbin case such that the thread will come off clockwise. Leave a couple of inches of thread loose. Then pull the end of the thread down into the cross slot and thread it through the tension spring and into the delivery eye.

Next make sure the presser foot is up and the needle is in the highest position. Push the slide plate up. Hold the latch in the center of the bobbin case and place it over the center stud with the finger opposite the notch in the shuttle race. Release the latch in the center and press down on the bobbin case until you hear a click when the latch catches the groove. Leave a 2-3" length of thread extending out of the bobbin case and push the slide plate down. (Reverse the steps to remove the bobbin case.)

To thread the needle, place a spool on the spool pin with the needle bar fully up. I try to place the spool on the pin so that the little catch is out of the way. (The catch holds the end of the thread when the spool isn't in use.) Bring the thread through the guide loop on the top of the machine and then down through the thread guide on the right side of the tension discs. Bring the thread back up on the left side of the tension discs through the check spring and through the thread guide. Bring the thread through the hole (eye) in the take up lever (from right to left). Then bring the thread down through all of the guides down the face of the machine to the needle. Finally thread the needle from left to right. Pull a few inches of thread through the needle. (I find the threading of the needle to be easiest if the thread has been cut at an angle after threading the machine.)

The manual for the White 765 is available from Singer's support site. The direct link to the manual is http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/827_white-765-x.pdf . See page 6 of the manual and the subsequent pages for pictures.

I hope this helps.

I have threaded up my machine and have started to sew. The thread on the back of the fabric keeps catching and bunches up. What's going wrong?


try a new needle

keep a check on the thread take up lever that the thread doesn't come off of it

rethread the machine to make sure that the thread isn't catching on anything

clean under the needle plate for loose thread or lint & in the bobbin area also

make sure the bobbin is inserted correctly

My machine is new and worked briefly but now . . . . the machine is threaded correctly and the bobbin is placed correctly. When turning the knob for the initial pick up of the bobbin thread, it does not...


You have described your problem just fine. Have you just changed the needle in your machine? If so, check it is in the right way, you want the flat shank to the back.

The needle has a scarf (scoop out) at the back - if it is facing to the front then the rotary hook (bit that goes around the bobbin and catches the top thread) can't catch the needle thread behind the needle.

Also check needle is fully up into the housing, this could also cause problem.

I'd suggest that you visit www.sewingabout.com and check out the pages on general sewing machine use, care and threading up, lots of helpful pictures and information which may be of assistance to you.

If it isn't your needle backwards (very easy to get wrong, happens all the time), then the timing could be out, which isn't so easy, but as its new I'd be very suprised if this was the fault. Just check needle, make sure top and bottom threads are threaded correctly and have another go. Also, remember to turn flywheel towards you.

My bobbin thread won't pull up. I tried what was listed to do, but it didn't work. Please help me~!!


Here are some things to check:

1. check the threading and tension of the top thread. It may look like it's threaded correctly but not be. When you pull on the thread is there some tension but still pulls out? Make sure it isn't catching somewhere on the path. Also make sure it's not too loose. If it's too loose it won't be able to pull the bobbin thread up enough.

2. check the bobbin threading and tension. Does it have some give but not reel out a ton? Is it catching? Is the bobbin in all the way - hear a click when inserting it?

3. Do you have the right needle for the machine? Is it inserted correctly? Try sewing through ordinary cotton first. Is it stitching? If so then you may not have the correct needle size for what you are trying to sew through.
