Model 6125 wont pick up bobbin thread...wont sew a stich


Install a brand new needle. If it still won't pick up the bobbin thread, the machine may be out of time. Search for sewing machine timing or take it for service.

My upper thread wont pick up the bobbin thread suddenly. How do I fix that problem?


Install a brand new needle. A bent/dull/damaged needle sometimes will not pick up bobbin thread.

Check that the needle is installed facing the correct direction.

Also check that the bobbin is wound smoothly, the bobbin is turning the correct direction in the bobbin case, and the bobbin tension is threaded correctly.

If it still will not pick up the bobbin thread, there is most likely a timing issue, ie the needle is arriving at the wrong time to intercept the bobbin thread. Search the internet for sewing machine timing discussions or take it for service.

My 532 wont pick up cotton from bobbin


First, install a brand new needle. Used/worn/bent needles will sometimes fail to pick up the bobbin thread.

Make sure the bobbin is installed correctly in the bobbin case.

If it still will not pick up the bobbin thread, most likely the machine is out of time (the needle arrives at the incorrect time to intercept the bobbin thread). Take it for service or search the internet for web sites or videos dealing with sewing machine timing.

I volunteer at a women's prison in their sewing class and we have model 385-16231301. The bobbin thread does not pick up. The bobin case seems to sit in their properly, but when I turn it manually...


check the needle to make sure that it's inserted correctly, the flat side of the needle goes to the back of the machine,, and make sure the needle goes all the way up into the needle cavity .

make sure the bobbin is correctly inserted

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

if none of the above work & the needle is still hitting something then it 's a great possibility it's out of time & needs to be serviced, cause the needle should not be hitting anything when it goes down.

My Janome needle thread will not pick up the bobbin thread! I have checked threading and needle and bobbin case...nothing works!


Your Machine is out of time, you probably broke a needle or sewed over a pin. take the machine to your locsl deler to be re timed. about 90.00

Problem with my machine


If you're not picking up a bobbin thread, it's either a timing issue, or the hook/needle clearance. Usually, with the hook/needle clearance the skipping stitch problem will be intermittent. If it's a timing issue, it may not pick up the bobbin at all.
