SOURCE: Bottom thread will not catch

Unplug the machine and remove the needle plate so that the bobbin case if fully exposed. Lift out the bobbin case and the cup that it sets in will be visible. Locate the "hook" on this cup. It is a finger with a sharp point at the upper edge of the cup. The hook is what grabs the thread from the needle while sewing.

  • Thread the needle.
  • Turn the handwheel by hand.
  • Watch the hook as it approaches the needle from right to left.
If the hook passes by the needle AFTER the eye of the needle is above it, you timing has slipped and the machine must be taken in for repair.
If the hook catches the thread from the needle, put everything back together and try threading again.

SOURCE: bobbin thread won't catch

I've just had this exact problem with my model 2037. The problem, according to 3 shops I've taken mine to, is that the shuttle hook (the metal piece that the bobbin sits in) is broken and needs replaced. Problem is, the piece is next to impossible to find.

Purchased a HomeStyle sewing machine Model F08702-H-01, the bobbin thread will not catch the upper thread


Check the needle to see if the flat side is facing to the back of the machine. This is usually how the needle should be inserted.

Thread the machine with the presser foot up.

Hold onto the thread tail at the needle and hand walk the needle down and then back up to pull the bobbin thread up.

Take both threads under the presser foot and to the back of the machine before you begin to sew.
