Needle not picking up bobbin thread on Prolectrix 8 stitch

Although I followed the instructions on how to thread the needle etc. when the needle goes down into the bobbin compartment, the bobbin remains still and in the clear window. Therefore, the needle cannot pick up the bobbin thread. The instruction manual doesn't have a problem solving page, and I don't know what I can try to solve this problem.

On my Singer 6235 sewing machine, needle will not pick up bobbin thread. Any suggestions to fix the problem?


Doesn't pick up bobbin thread
1. The bobbin may be in backwards.
2. The bobbin thread & top thread need to be pulled to the back before starting the stitching
3. You need a ballpoint rather than universal needle to sew on t-shirt knits.
4. the needle is in the machine backwards
5. Make sure the needle is the correct one for the fabric being sewed
6. Needle inserted wrong in the needle holder
7. Warped needle
8. Warped bobbin
9. Also could be a timing problem

Does any one know anything about a sewing machine model 217-APP no 457. Think it may be a singer, have just found it in late mother-in-laws shed. It won't pick up the bobbin thread but runs ok


not picking up the bobbin thread is an indication of needle / hook timing
thread tension problems appear as a mess of stitches under the cloth
the timing can be checked by having the needle full down and the hook of the bobbin case should be at the needle just above the eye of the needle
if it is too early or late then it is not in position to get the thread

Machine won't stitch


If by "won't stitch" you mean that the top thread will not pick up the bottom thread, make sure you have the needle threaded properly. If the machine is a top loading bobbin, the thread goes in the needle from front to back. Same if it's a side loading bobbin (bobbin faces you as you sew). If it's a front loading bobbin (bobbin faces left of machine), the thread goes in the needle from left to right.

Needle goes through fabric but is not picking up bobbin thread to complete stitch


Check to make sure the needle is oriented properly. The flat side of the needle should face away from the bobbin. The thread should pass through the needle from the bobbin side.

Kenmore 100 stitch 385 Bobbin thread does not engage into stitch, Needle goes down but thread does not pull up into stitch. Threading bobbin according to diagram on foldout section. replaced the bobbin...


make sure that you have enough of a tail on your thread, at least 3-4 inches and hold it with your left hand until the needle picks up the thread. I am assuming that you have your bobbin threaded correctly and your needle is inserted with the flat side facing the rear of the machine.

Won't pick up bobbin thread


Does she have the right needle in? If the needle is to short it won't pick up the thread. If that is not the issue than it could be timing

Machine will not pick up the bobbin thread.


if your machine's needle threads from front to back, make sure that the flat part of the needle shank points to the rear of the machine. If it threads from left to right, the flat side should face right, etc.

Problems with prolectrix sewin machine


you have to make sure the bobbin thread is positioned right in the middle. When the needle comes down (into the bobbin compartment), you can peer into the bobbin compartment and see a loop of thread (coming out of the needle). You want to catch that bobbin (thread) in the loop of thread (that runs from the needle).
