Install a brand new needle. If this doesn't help, it is out of time and needs to be serviced.

SOURCE: Top thread will not pick up bobbin thread. If it

Check the needle to be sure it is inserted with the flat side of the needle shank to the back of the machine.

If this is not the problem, the machine may need the timing adjusted. This is best done by a sewing machine tech.

SOURCE: Singer Confidence 7463 - needle

Have you changed the needle since you purchased it? A needle should be replaced every 4-6 hours of stitching so for each garment sewn as a rule of thumb. So try replacing the needle, cleaning and oiling the maachine as per the manual. Check needle is in the correct way, it is easy to put in backwards if you aren't familar with them, flat shank to the back and there is usually a scarf (cut away area) at the back of the needle which is where the rotary hook under the needle plate comes around to catch the upper thread during the stitch process. So if needle is in backwards this will cause stitching to fail.

So elimate the needle firstly.

If this fails and the knocking noise continues, then it could be that the timing has been knocked out. It can happen if you sew over a pin and hit it hard (or the needle strikes the foot if stitch setup is wrong for the foot being used). In this case, you'll need to take it back to the shop for the serviceman to fix.

SOURCE: Singer confidence 7467 bobbin thread issues

Have you checked that under the foot plate is clean sometimes a bit of fluff or thread collects there, and are you threading the needle the right way. check with the manual for the machine. Also check which way the manual recommends the bobbin thread is unwinding clockwise or anticlockwise. Hope this is helpful,

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

Why does the top thread sometimes picks up the hook and then picks up bobbin but bobbin then crosses over and makes a mess? Wont work


Basic Tips for All
  1. Always turn the handwheel TOWARDS you (counter clockwise) as turning it in the opposite direction (away from you, clockwise) may knock the timing out requiring repair from a service center.
  2. Always be sure your presser foot is in the DOWN position before sewing. Sewing with the presser foot in the up position will cause your thread to tangle and your bobbin to jam.
  3. Change needles regularly (after 16 hours of use) as dull/weak needles can cause damage to your machine and fabric. Only use SINGER needles on your SINGER sewing machine.
  4. Always be sure you are using the correct bobbin for your machine. Class 66, Class 15 and Class 15J bobbins look very similar. However, using the incorrect bobbin class in your machine can cause damage.

I cannot get the bottom thread to pick up. The top thread is fine and the bobbin is threaded and in place, but it will not stitch.


Generally, this is because your needle is bent. Even if it looks fine to the naked eye, it only has to be bent the slightest bit to cause a problem.

Try changing your needle. 9 times out of 10, this solves the problem.

Good luck!

Sewing machine will not stitch. The thread goes into the material but does not make a stitch. I've changed the needle, cleaned the bobbin, rethread the bobbin and the top thread.??????????????


Is this the first time you have used the machine? If so you need to bring up the bobbin thread by hand before stitching. Only when both bobbin and top threads are up through the needle plate nad pulled towards the back of machine, will the machine form a stitch.

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!
