Top thread will not pick up bobbin thread on my model 7422


try a new needle--make sure it's the right needle for the fabric
being sewed.
try rethreading the machine top and bobbin --make sure to use
every thread guide
try a different bobbin
it's also possible that the machine could have a timing problem
and needs to be checked

here's a free manual if you need one just click on the link

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

The bobbin thread will not pick up. The machine had jammed and I forced the wheel and can't get bobbin thread to pick up. When I thread manually, I only get holes, no stitches. Is it a timing belt?


check your needle to see if it's bent---roll on flat surface to see if it roll correctly
on some sewing machines when the thread comes off the thread take up lever it can cause the machine to jam
also if the bobbin thread becomes tangled it can jam
check the bobbin area for lint or loose threads
try having a top thread tail & bobbin thread tail of 3-4 inches
try holding the top thread tail & turn the handwheel on the right side on the machine manually & put the needle down into the bobbin area & see if the bobbin thread will pick up that way

Top thread doesn't pick up the bobbin thread (Toyota sewing m.)


Hi! This may sound silly, but if you changed your needle and put it in backwards (which is easy to do), the top thread won't pick up the bottom thread. Take your needle out and check the flat side of the needle shank--which way is it facing? With a lot of the newer machines, the flat side goes to the back, but check your manual to make sure.

Let me know if this helps, ok?

Happy Sewing!

How do you get the needle to go down to pick up the bobbin?


Thread top needle, pull and hold thread in back, make sure your bobbin is threaded and in correctly, turn the wheel toward you it will pick up the bobbin thread and bring it up top. Then seperate your threads up on top. Is that what you were asking?

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.

Top thread will not pick up bobbin thread makes a big loopy mess


This is sometimes caused by the upper thread not threaded correctly. You need to thread it first with the pressure foot in the up position. You need to "floss" the thread into the clear plastic guide as this is where the tension is. The tension should be set to E for embroidering. Also make sure you get the bobbin thread in the slot on the bobbin case. Also, lower your pressure foot before you begin embroidering. Hope this helps!

Timing is off, is is possible that you broke a needle or sewed over a pin. timing needs to be re set by a professional.
