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.
