First try changing the needle then rethread the top and see if it picks up if it still doesn't I would then take out the bobbin and put it back in the bobbin case make sure that the bobbin is in the right way, when you pull the thread it should turn clockwise . Then replace bobbin case till it clicks. Try it and see if it picks up. You may have to do this more than once.

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.

My brother pe150 embroidery machine does not pick up bottom thread and wont sew


try changing the needle
rethread the machine--use every thread guide
make sure the bobbin is not warped
make sure the bobbin is inserted correctly in the case
it's very possible that the timing of the machine is off & the machine would need to be checked at a sewing machine shop

I cannotl get my 270 D to even sew, it will not pick up the bobbin thread and do a thing. I have yet to sew the machine. donna


Picking up the bobbin thread has to be done by manually. Turn off the machine, open the bobbin door, lift the presser foot, hold the end of the upper thread and slowly turn the side wheel till the needle enters the bobbin race and on the way up it will catch the bobbin thread. Pull the upper thread till you lift the bobbin thread too. Put both threads to the back of the machine, close the bobbin door and you should be able to sew.

Brother XL3030 SEWING MACHINE ..STRAIGHT STITCH LOOKS GOOD ON TOP OF FABRIC, BUT BOTTOM STITCHES ARE SKIPPING AND LOOPS FORM IN PLACES..YOU CAN PULL THE THREAD RIGHT THROUGH AND UNRAVEL ALL STITCHING! I...


Check the bobbin tension and that the thread is tight around the bobbin. Make sure that the bobbin is in the right way around - the bobbin thread should double back on itself coming out of the bobbin holder.

I don't know how to install bobbin and casing into Brother XV 1250


I do not see your model number listed on www.brother-usa.com to even look up your manual. I would call Brother at 1-877-276-8437 and ask for assistance.

Brother sewing machine vx1120 Ithink won't pick up bobbin thread


have you tried other thread and a different bobbin?  The tension screw on the bobin case could be too tight.

Have you got the bobbin in the correct way around, also have you put the needle in correct with the groove in the front of you.Are you using the correct bobbins,if yes to all these your machine has thrown it timing out in the bobbin.and needs to be looked at.
