Be sure to ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading the top thread. This allows the thread to seat firmly in the tension disk.

My old Singer sewing machine won't pick up the bobbin thread. It is threaded properly and goes down to pick up the bobbin thread, but comes up with no bobbin thread. What to do please?


Hi, try re-timing the machine. Select "straight stitch," then take the bottom off the machine to see underneath the bobbin case area. Open the faceplate and look for two marks on the needle bar around where it enters the machine. Take out the bobbin case to see the hook. Turn the balance wheel toward you so the needle is going down. Stop turning when the needle is just about to start on its way up. The bottom mark on the needle bar should be just about to enter the machine, and the point of the hook should be just above the eye of the needle. If it isn't, tilt the machine backward and loosen the two screws on the vertical gear so you can move the hook to where it should be. Tighten the screws and put everything back so you can test your setup. If it sews a straight stitch correctly, try it on zigzag wide stitch. If it misses one side, repeat the timing process.

Top thread won't pull up the bottom thread


make sure needle is in with flat facing back and pushed all the way up in needle holder. thread needle from front to back, and ensure a bobbin with thread is correctly inserted in machine with approx 2-3 inches of thread hanging off it.

wind machine over (top of handwheel toward you) gently holding the needle thread (do not hold taught or hook may not catch loop underneath needle plate) and the bottom thread should come wrapped around the needle thread after you have turned 1 revolution and stopped with takeup lever at top.

if you have done all of this and the bobbin thread will not come up, try sewing on scrap fabric and see if the stitches are correctly formed. if so all is good, if not, it sounds like your hook timing is out and will require a tech to repar.

goodluck,

scott.

Place thread spool on the spool pin at back right top of machine. From there, thread through 1) rear thread guide (little hook), 2) front thread guide (front hook), 3) down and up through the thread tension dial from right to left so that thread picks up the thread spring check (the little spring on the left of the tension dial). 4) Through the thread take-up-lever, from right to left (the little lever that goes up and down). 5) Through the thread guard and guides (one on the front, one on the needle arm). 6) Through the needle, front to back. Good luck johntrev800 (at) yahoo.com

Timing my pfaff 332 sewing machine


There are two parts to the sew hook on that machine. The outer part has the hook point that grabs the thread off the needle. Then there is an inner part which has a post in the center of it that the bobbin case fits on to. The inner part should be held in place with an arm that has a bump on it. It keeps the inner part from spinning around. Sometimes this arm slips loose and a notch in the inner part of the hook assembly slips out from under the knob on the arm. If this is what is happening, you need to loosen the screw holding the arm in place and reposition the notch of the inner part of the hook back under the bump on the arm. There needs to be clearance between the notch and the bump for the thread to pass between the two. And the bump should be in line with the needle when it is in its lowest position.
If this doesn't solve the problem you need to take the machine in for repair.

Brother Sewing Machine model:CS8150 bobbin thread problems


The top of the machine is not threaded correctly. First raise the presserfot then rethread the machine. Bottom looping is usually caused by a lack of top tension. There could allso be a bur on the hook.

Threading & Use of Needle Threder


Threading as per image....make sure presser foot is up so top thread will properly engage in tension unit, make sure your thread is inserted in small guide on needle arm too. Your user guide should have a clear graphic of this process which is essentially the same for all machines.
2bc0705.jpg
As for the needle threader, once thru the last guide on the needle arm, raise needle to highest position, lower the needle threader so that the tiny hook engages the eye of the needle and place thread horizontally from L to R along the plastic arm so the tiny hook can grab thread, release threader and a small loop will form in needle, pull it clear and you are away !

If the tiny hook has been bent, a little judicious and gentle bending to re-align may be necessary, use a jewellers screwdriver or similar and please be very gentle
