My upper thread wont pick up the bobbin thread suddenly. How do I fix that problem?


Install a brand new needle. A bent/dull/damaged needle sometimes will not pick up bobbin thread.

Check that the needle is installed facing the correct direction.

Also check that the bobbin is wound smoothly, the bobbin is turning the correct direction in the bobbin case, and the bobbin tension is threaded correctly.

If it still will not pick up the bobbin thread, there is most likely a timing issue, ie the needle is arriving at the wrong time to intercept the bobbin thread. Search the internet for sewing machine timing discussions or take it for service.

Bobbin house is not lined up with the needle for a full turn. How can I fix this?


Your machine is out of time. This means that your bobbin casing is not rotating at the right time to be able to grab the thread from your needle. You should take it to the mechanic to have it fixed.

Bobbin not functioning in my sewing machine.


Consult your owner's manual. It sounds like possibly you don't have the bobbin threaded in the bobbincase properly. The bobbin must spin (either clockwise or counterclockwise per the manual) a certain direction and the thread needs to be threaded in the bobbincase in order for the bobbin to turn.

Why won't my bobbin casing turn with the handle I oiled it. It turns easy with hands. I can't get the needle to pull up the bobbin thread. So frustrated.


The hook should turn when the needle is moving. The hook is made to turn by a belt, gears or both. The hook (sharp thing) is under the bobbin case. If it truly isn't turning as you say then the bobbin thread will not be pulled up. This can only be fixed by a repairman.

How do i fix my sewing machine underthread keeps breaking


Bobbin thread breaks
1. There is a right way & wrong way to insert the bobbin in the case --when you insert the bobbin in if it doesn't stitch correctly turn the bobbin over see if that helps or bobbin case is not inserted correctly
2. Lint has collected in the bobbin holder
3. The bobbin is damaged & doesn't turn smoothly
4. Lower thread tension is two tight

My machine will not thread any bobbins.


Your bobbin winder has seized. Remove the top cover and oil the area where the bobbin winder shaft goes through the bobbin winder assembly. You might need to force the winder to turn with your fingers for a while, but it will begin to turn smoothly once the oil gets in there.

If the black bobbin winder tire has a flat spot worn into it, you will need a new bobbin winder tire. Costs around a dollar.

Winding the Bobbin


I have the same problem and was skeptical of the drop of oil solution but it worked. I had taken my baby lock ellure apart while investigating previously and found nothing else wrong. Tried a few drops of oil and after a moment it started winding noisily and then settled right in!! Working perfectly now!
