My singer model 1007 isn't threading.


Here is a manual for your machine (if you need one):

https://www.sewshop.com/1007_Singer_Instruction_Manual___pdf_format_-8-4055-5653.html


If by "threading," you mean the needle is not picking up the bobbin thread, the first thing to do is install a brand new needle. If the needle is damaged/bent, sometimes it will not connect properly with the bobbin thread.

If it is still not picking up the thread, then most likely there is a needle/hook timing issue when the needle arrives at the bobbin thread at the wrong time in order to make the connection. There are many web sites and videos on the internet that provide instructions on how to correct the timing. Otherwise, you could take it for service.

Needle will not pick up bobbin thread


could be the bobbin thread tension is too tight or not out long enough to move around the case
could ne needle and hook timing where the needle and the hook are not in the correct place for the hook to pick up the needle thread
could be the needle in installed incorrectly so the cut away section is not in place to enable the hook to pick up the thread
If you have broken a needle just before the problem it could be the timing has moved and needs resetting
If none of these work for you, take it in to any service shop and have it properly diagnosed

I need a repair manual or need to know why when i try to sew it wont pick up the bobbin thread


The easiest thing to try is replace the needle with a brand-new needle. If the needle is bent or damaged, it may not be engaging with the bobbin thread correctly. Also make sure it is installed with the flat side facing the correct direction. Be sure to Raise the presser foot before threading the upper thread so it will seat properly in the tension disks.

Perhaps the following will offer some help:

Top thread will not pick up the bobbin thread. Machine is threaded correctly and am using a new needle. Bobbin case is clean and oiled.


(1) Check the needle or replace with a new one. A needle has a groove in one side of it and that is the side that the thread enters the needle. Some thread from the side and some from the front.
(2) Before sewing, manually turn the wheel to make the needle go down while holding the needle thread with your left hand. When the bottom thread pulls up, pull both threads toward the back of the machine before sewing.
(3) Make sure your pressure foot has been lowered. Sounds silly, but if you lift is high it might just look like it is engaged.
(4) Try it on two ply fabric first and try both a straight stitch and a zig zag and see if you have problems with both.
(5) Make sure your thread is really machine thread and not hand sewing thread.
(6) Make sure the bobbin thread is feeding off the bobbin spool in the right direction.
(7) Anything other than these is probably a tension problem or a timing problem.

My machine is not picking up the stitches. I have rethreaded, checked needle and tension.


try these suggestions
Not picking up thread can be several issues
1.bobbin is miss wound
2. bobbin case isn't snapped in properly
3. you're using the wrong type bobbin
4. needle is bent or burred
5. check bobbin area for lint & loose threads
6. little oil--check operation manual for this
7.machine is out of time --done by service tech
8.check automatic thread cutter to see if it’s bent
but most of the time the issue is once again mis-threading or the thread coming off take up lever
sewing machine needles put in incorrectly
Check & make sure needle is in the needle holder correctly.
Check your manual for threading diagram
check bobbin area including case for lint & loose threads
Take the needle plate off & clean under neath it ( if your machine has screws that hold the needle plate on be careful NOT TO DAMAGE THE SCREWS) because a damaged screw that has a burr on it can pull fabric
Each time you start to sew
1.make sure there’s 2 to 3 inches of top thread when you put the needle down for the bobbin thread
2.make sure there is a 2 to 3 inch of bobbin thread so the top thread can pick it up
3.Pull the tail of the top and bobbin thread behind the presser foot
hope these help--please rate this with the thumbs in the upper right hand corner-thank you

Howdy and help !! my 1974 singer genie sewing machine was workin just fine... i broke a needle replaced it with the correct needle inserted properly nothin bent etc and yes - its all threaded properly too....


This can happen to ANY sewer, of any skill level, so don't feel bad.
First, remove the bobbin and bobbin case. Thoroughly clean the area where the bobbin case sits in the machine. Lint builds up here and causes a host of irritating problems. It should be cleaned out often, every few hours of sew time if you're using fuzzy or soft fabrics.

Then, try a newly wound bobbin. Even if it's not the one you wish to use, the one you've got now may have something wrong, be poorly wound perhaps. You can rewind it if need be, or wind another one. Then, rethread the upper machine too. Sometimes you can miss the simplest thing especially if you're not very familiar with the machine. Check every thread guide to be sure no thread has been caught. My old machine has a nick in one guide that catches thread now and then, just have to watch out for it.

Once it's all clean and rethreaded, insert another new needle, and then try to pick up the bobbin thread again and hopefully, all will be well.

I know that needles can be a bit costly, but the least defect in any needle can cause issues, and it's not worth driving yourself nuts over them. Dull needles may not work properly, and many modern fabrics are really, really ******* needles. Best to replace them more often and be sure they're in top notch shape. I don't keep old needles around at all, I put them into the metal recycling so I don't mix them up with new needles. Good luck

Getting the LS to pick up the bobbin thread


Possibly the needle is inserted incorrectly. This machine thread front to back so the flat side of the needle needs to be on the back of the machine.
