Throughly review Owner's manual, they are usually quite clear and have excellent troubleshooting. No manual, try MFG website, or email their customer service. Or try manualslib.com.
You will want the manual next time anyway.

I have a brother ls-2150 I can't pick cotton up from the bobbin


Try installing a brand new needle (verify it is installed correctly). If it still does not pick up the bobbin thread, the needle/hook may be out of time, requiring service.

LS-1520 Brother sewing machine hook pick thread up takes it around half way and gets stuck...any ideas. the timing seems to be right??!!


try changing needles
clean under the needle plate & in the bobbin area for loose thread or lint
make sure the bobbin is inserted into the bobbin case correctly--if the
machine won't pick the thread up from the bobbin correctly take the bobbin
out of the case & turn it around & try it that way.

try cleaning under the needle plate & in bobbin area for loose threads or lint
try using a new needle--make sure the needle is inserted correctly in the needle holder
try rethreading the machine top & bobbin
if you try all these suggestions & the machine still won't pick up the bobbin thread then it's possible that the machine is out of time & would have to be retimed at a sewing machine shop

I have a Janome 6000 from eons ago. The top thread isn't picking up the bobbin thread. What should I do?


Go to http://www.sewconsult.com/sewing_machine_troubleshooting/sewing_machine_troubleshooting.htm#my_bobbin_thread_won_t_get_picked_up_by_1 and click on "My bobbin thread won't get picked up by the top thread" if you're brought to the top of the page.

This is a pretty good page for some basic troubleshooting of machine problems.

Hope it helps-especially since the pictures are pretty clear. It does a much better job than I could on my own!

My bobbin thread won't pick up. Its a new machine and everything came attached. followed the instructions and no go.


Generally, this is because the needle is inserted wrong or because it's bent. In the first case, the top of the needle (called the shank) has a flat side-this has to be inserted so it faces the back or away from you.
In the second case, when a bent needle stops the top thread from picking up the bobbin thread. Even if you think your needle is fine, change it to see if this solves the problem.

The top thread won't catch the bobbin thread to pull it through. It almost seems like it doesn't go around to pick it up. Or is the bobbin thread supposed to pop up more for pick up? This is my Mom's...


check the needle to see if it's damaged
have a thread tail for the top thread & bobbin thread of 3-4 inches
try this & see if it helps you
make sure there's a 3-4 inch bobbin thread then, hold the top thread tail (3-4 inches) with your fingers away from the needle & then use the handwheel on the right side of the machine & lower the needle down into the bobbin area & see if it pick up the bobbin thread that way
make sure there's no lint or loose threads in bobbin area

Needle will not pick up thread from bobbin


If you have correctly inserted the bobbin, try mmoving the top thread by hand gently up and down into the bobbin area. I let my top needle pick up the bobbin thread this way before using the pedal. I pull a long strand of bobbin thread out before pushing the pedal too.
