SOURCE: I am having trouble getting my singer 6199 sewing machine to sew. The top thread will not pick up bot thread. I tried changing needle, changing bobbin, rewinding bobbin, rethreading machine & bobb

did you get the needle in correctly--all the way up into the needle holder
& the flat side of the needle goes to the back of the machine

also after you check the needle & it's in correctly it's very possible that the machine is out of time & a sewing machine repair technican would have to retime the machine

Alot of thread on the backside, it worked fine for 2 seams then on the 3rd yuk!!


this sounds like a cotton tension problem, on the shuttle case their is two small screws which adjust the thread tension leaving the shuttle adjust the centre screw only by a very small amount clock wise and retry that's if it's a fixed shuttle case if it is of the type that can be removed then insert the bobbin into the shuttle case and thread it into the spring tensioner now hold the tail of the cotton and the shuttle case should hang down, now give them thread a sharp pull up a couple of times and the cotton should just slip and get longer if it does this then the tension is correct if it doesn't move then slacken the centre anti clockwise until it does slip as stated above, if none of the above do not cure the problem then it's possibly due to the pick hook not being in the correct position behind the needle and as to be adjusted, but hopefully it is just a thread tension problem either with the top tension which is more likely , but please make sure you have threaded the sewing machine correctly before doing any of the above.

Happy sewing

In regular sewing my stitches are fine but when I switch to embroidery the top thread is loose and sometimes doesn't pick up the bottom thread. What can I do to fix this?


You may need to have it checked and tuned up. It doesn't cost much. I just had mine done for the first time because when I tried to wind a bobbin the needle stayed in sewing status. I bought this machine years ago and it only cost.80.00 for a tune up also.

Looking at the manual it says to go to auto and you can see the screen where the cloth guide position can be adjusted. Right under that is the auto tension with a + and -. You would need to increase the tension level. It says that this is also used for professional style embroidery in the same way.

I hope both of these suggestions will help.

Model PE-180 not picking up bobbin thread


Possible that the shuttle settings are not correct. remove the bobbin and thread it once again. reset it back on the catch and see if the thread is caught up. follow the directions once again and make sure the thread is freely moving within the bobbin.

My brunswick vibrating shuttle will work but it wont pick up the thread from the shuttle. I have thread the shuttle several time just like the owners manual says but it still wont pick up the thread. ...


Check to make sure the flat side of the needle is in the proper orientation. If it's turned the wrong way, you will experience this problem. Also make sure the needle is threaded from the proper direction.
Hopefully this will solve your problem. <Ray>

Machine problem


Hi!

There are so many reasons due to which the thread is not picking up from the bobbin like:

The upper thread could be tangled. Remove the thread completely from the machine. The correct size spool cap should be used for the size of the thread spool. Re-thread the machine. Remove the bobbin and make sure the bobbin is threaded properly in the shuttle race. Remove any loose threads or lint in the shuttle race.

You could be holding the needle thread too tight. Hold the thread lightly to keep the end from going down into the shuttle.
The needle could be threaded incorrectly. Thread the needle eye from the front to the back.
The needle could be bent or improperly inserted. Install a new needle with the flat side of the needle facing the back.

Do rate the solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.

Thanks
