Question about Brother Se400 Computerized Embroidery & Sewing Machine
My Brother SE400 stopped embroidering all of a sudden this afternoon in the middle of a project. The top thread is not catching with the bobbin now. It just quit all of a sudden. Changed needle, thread, bobbin etc. Still not working. This is a new machine not very old at all.
Hai, How many heads in your embroidery machine? As far as you should have brother embroidery machine's maintain and handling is smooth and carefully. Please check the timings. Otherwise ask your machine mechanic.

SOURCE: Thread won't catch bobbin
I hope to God nobody else pays more for a repair than the machine is worth.
It's ridiculous to spend $300 for that repair since the machine is available almost everywhere for way under $200. You could have thrown that one in the trash and bought a new one cheaper than the repair!!
I paid $129 for mine, had the same problem with two, yes, two of them, and sent them back and was sent another which so far is working fine. There seems to be a flaw in the engineering of that machine since so many people are experiencing the same problem. The machines DO have a warranty so please, please, be careful of unscrupulous repair people. Oh, I'm sorry but I need to mention that I bought my machine from eBay and it was a refurbished machine sold by Ken Sewing and Vacumm in Muscle Shoals, Al. They stand behind their products and were very nice to deal with, they even paid for the return shipping on the two that I returned. Hope this helps y'all.

You may have the bobbin case in wrong. I have this machine, and I know that it is really easy to put the bobbin case in wrong. Try taking it out and making sure that the little stop is in the front and it is seated down in there and able to wiggle back and forth. My experience with this machine, until the other day when my cat knocked mine off the table and knocked something out of alignment, is that it just works. Any time mine hasn't worked, it has either been dirty, needing oil, threaded wrong or the bobbin case wasn't seated right. In other words, it has always been my fault.

machine needs to be timed,,usually a 30-50 repair, could try dropping a needle just a tad bit to see if it catches

SOURCE: The bobbin thread is not
try a new needle
make sure the bobbin is not warped
make sure the bobbin case area is free of lint or loose thread
make sure you hold the upper thread tail while it's going down to pick up the bobbin thread
make sure there is a 2 to 4 in tail for the upper thread to grab
