Question about Sewing Machines
I'M NOT SURE ABOUT YOUR QUESTION BUT IF IT MEANS THE THREAD ISN'T COMING UP FROM THE BOBBIN THEN HERE'S THE POSSIBILITIES:
1. YOU NEED TO HANG ON TO THE TOP THREAD WHILE YOU TURN THE HAND WHEEL. IT WILL COME UP IF EVERYTHING IS FUNCTIONAL.
2. THE TIMING IS OFF SO THE ANSWER IS GET IT TIMED OR TIME IT YOURSELF.
3. IF YOUR THREAD IS GETTING STUCK WHILE IT TRIES TO COME UP THROUGH THE HOLE OF THE PLATE YOU MAY HAVE SOME ROUGH SPOTS IN THE HOLE. FIX IT WITH A FINGER NAIL FILE AND MAKE IT SMOOTH.

Remove the needle plate and the bobbin case.
Ensure that the needle is inserted all the way up into the needle clamp.
Set the machine for straight stitch, center needle position.
Slowly turn the handwheel in the normal sewing direction and observe the following hook timing setting:
When the needle reaches it's lowest point and travels up 3.5mm, the point of the hook should be directly behind the needle, or at least within 1 or 2mm.
Another view is as the hook passes the needle, it should pass the needle slightly above the eye of the needle.
If the timing looks good, use some alcohol on a bit of cloth to clean the hook, careful around the tip of the hook as it is very sharp.
If the hook timing is off, you will need to take it to a knowledgeable service person as there are several possible solutions and several other related adjustments which will need to be made.

The handwheel may have a pull out/push in action to disengage/engage the clutch, or it may automatically disengage when the bobbin winder is moved to the right for winding........hold a short tail of thread to get it started and you should be away.
Move the winder to the left for sewing, or push handwheel in, according to the mechanism.

Does the winder spin freely by hand? If so then it needs to be adjusted, maybe a new bobbin tire also. If not then try oiling it and freeing it up by hand.
Hope this helps.

It's actually designed that way on purpose so you can wind a bobbin while sewing. If you lift the presser foot, at least it'll make less noise in the process.
