SOURCE: Needle won't pick up bobbin thread - HELP!!!

I recently fixed my wife maching with the same problem. I found that the screw had come loose that holds the linkage together that rotates the bobbin holder. I was fortunate enough to notice the screw while looking at the machine. To replace it requires taking both the front and back covers off of the frame since the bobbin holder linkage is in the rear behind the needle area. Be careful to insure that the plastic toothed "rail" that runs the bobbin holder is positioned properly or it may break off a tooth. Once I replaced the screw and put the machine back together, it picked up the thread with no problem. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Thread not catching

Got 14 of those machines used industrially, never seen one of those with timing problems from straps or loose straps. Most often it comes from ruined needle bar assembly.
Check if the needle bar is perfectly tight. If not, bring the machine to a technician. The assembly cost about $25 and service should be around $70.

The machine was working fine until I changed the thread and bobbin. When I start to stitch, the bobbin thread and needle thread aren't looping together.


Install a brand new needle. Make sure it is installed facing the correct direction.

Remove all the thread from the machine. RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning confirming that no thread guides were missed in the process. Check to make sure the bobbin is loaded and threaded properly in the bobbin case.

Have a Good Housekeeper AZZ sewing machine. Re-threaded the bobbin now the stitching is all messed up. First time sewing don't have a manual. Is this tension problem? How do I fix it.


Sounds like you have threaded the bobbin incorrectly or placed in it the spool holder wrongly, if it was all working fine before re-threading the bobbin. Has it been re-threaded too loosely? Fill another bobbin and try again. You may find instruction on the web site.

White sewing machine 2037 I have been having trouble for some time with the bobbin thread becoming snarled. Finally took it apart and cleaned it, which helped. When I sat down to sew a blanket tonight,...


Hello. What you have described presents a large number of possibilities. What I can tell you is this; A sewing machine that uses a bobbin is known as a lock stitch sewing machine. On a basic lock stitch machine, two threads are used to make the stitch - the needle thread and the bobbin thread. In order for the stitch to be made, the bobbin and it's thread are passed through a loop in the needle thread, or more accurately, the needle thread must pass a loop around the bobbin and it's thread, after which the loop is pulled back in and up, taking the bobbin thread with it right up to the underside of the fabric and securely holding it there and the process is repeated, many times over in the blink of an eye. The bobbin, weather placed in a case first or or set directly into, has a place in the center of a rotating hook, which can be oriented in either a vertical or horizontal position. It is the sharp, pointy hook that grabs the needle thread above the eye of the needle and loops the needle thread around the bobbin and it's thread. In less than one full rotation of the hook the needle thread is picked up, looped around the bobbin, and pulled back off of the hook, taking with it the bobbin thread and pulling it up tight to the bottom of the fabric. The process is then repeated, many times over in the blink of an eye. For a sewing machine to function correctly, every aspect of the process must be right, and if any part of the process is not spot-on, failure occurs. Process failure ranges in severity from one stitch out of a thousand skipped to catastrophic breakage of the machine and it's parts. I'm sorry I don't know of a White repair shop in your area. I am new to FixYa, so I'm not sure if it is appropriate to offer my services, but I think it is okay to give you my number if you want to call me. It is 574-808-9613.

Bobbin thread


Not completely sure on your model but you have to adjust (loosen) the tension on the top thread to match the tension on the bottom thread. Usually there is a wheel on the upper right of the machine. the tension adjust is the knob inside that wheel. Turn counter clockwise about 1/8 turn. Then try and repeat until it works. Check owners manual for top thread tension adjustment if needed.

Good luck.

Please rate me.

My stupid singer will not tighten the bobbin thread. i have tried everything ever, and NOTHING is working. tension does nothing. the top thread pulls right out, the bobbin thread isn't pulling down. PLEASE...


Deep breath and start at the beginning, make sure the presser foot is up before you thread the machine, top tension should be about 4 or 5, make sure the thread has gone between the discs, make sure the bobbin is turning anti clockwise in the bobbin case, you should only just be able to pull the thread through with slight resistence, if it is too tight loosen the scew on the bobbin case about a quarter of a turn and test, repeat if you have to, remember that Singer machines do not work well with thread that is not mercerised, if the thread is not being pulled through at all then the chances are the machine will need retiming.

Husqvarna Sapphire - thread cutter not working


Does the metal arm come out to grab the threads to cut it? Is there a blade in the metal arm that cuts the tread? I think a standard utility knife cutter blade is the same size (just like the one that cuts the bobbin thread when you put in a new bobbin). What happens when you activate the cutter is the arm comes out, grabs the threads, brings them to the blade which cuts the threads, the velcro by the cutter holds the bobbin thread in place for the next stitch. Otherwise the thread may end up on top and the top thread would not be able to pick it up for the next stitch.

Good luck.

Thread gets caught on bobbin and jams


You may need a new bobbin case if your machine is an older model.. Over time the cases get nicks in them causing thread to catch on it. Have you lubricated the bobbin area? Needs one drop of oil for every ,I believe it is 25 hours of usage. That may take care of it. The oil goes under the bobbin right in the center of bobbin case. Remove your bobbin before applying the oil. i hope this helps you. Good Luck

Won't catch bobbin thread


In order to see whether or not my euro-pro 9110 had a timing issue, the service rep had me change out the needle (making sure I was using anything but a Singer brand needle--they do not work in these machines). I re-threaded the needle, took out the bobbin casing and the plastic ring encasing the bobbin, then lowered the needle to see if the hook on the metal ring holding the bobbin actually catches the thread on its own. If it doesn't catch, it's a timing issue and needs repair. They can walk you through this process of troubleshooting and set up repair if need. Call Eruo-Pro's customer service center for sewing machine service and repair at 800-798-7395

Bobbin help please!


Take out the raceway and check for broken threads/lint. Unthread the machine and put in a new needle taking care to insert it correctly. It may be that the needle is slightly bent. Put everything back carefully and check it is running smoothly with NO THREAD first(no bobbin thread either-use an empty bobbin). This will prove there is nothing catching. If it catches when you thread it then you are having a problem with incorrect threading.
