Be sure to try a brand new needle. If it still fails, the machine is probably out of time. Take it for service.

SOURCE: Bobbin thread breaks

Make sure your bobbin thread is turning clockwise as it sits in the bobbin case. There is a screw on the outside of the bobbin case you can turn with your thumb slightly to adjust tension. If you dangle the case from the thread and give it a light ****, it should move down slightly when doing so-an indicator of good bobbin tension.

SOURCE: Not picking up the Bobbin thread

Sounds like you have to take off the throat plate and clean out threads under it.  Sometime they ball up and prevent the needle from going down and catching the bobbin thread. You can't see themuntil you take off the plate.  Follow the directions.  It is easy.

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

SOURCE: will not pick up bobbin thread

Unusual for this machine. Check to be sure the needle is inserted with the flat side to the back of the machine. If it is, remove the needle plate, bobbin and bobbin case. Turn the hand wheel slowly toward you and see if the point of the hook is above or below the eye of the needle when the hook point is aligned behind the needle. If the eye is above the point of the hook the machine is out of time and best taken to qualified technician.

Bobbin trouble


Never use bobbins that are not made for your machine.
Possibility of further damage is high using parts meant for a different machine. Get the correct bobbins, clean the hook area where the bobbin thread is picked up. Use a tooth brush in and around the area where the bobbin fits.

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

Model PE-180 not picking up bobbin thread


Possible that the shuttle settings are not correct. remove the bobbin and thread it once again. reset it back on the catch and see if the thread is caught up. follow the directions once again and make sure the thread is freely moving within the bobbin.

Make sure that your needle is put in the correct way, there is a groove in the front of the needle, check with your finger nail, this is usually to be facing you, and make sure the thread is going through the tension holder correctly do not have the foot down when you are threading the machine,as this stops the thread from going through the needle tension holder.
