Open the bottom of the machine and see if there are a couple of stripped gears. Just found them in my machine, little black teeth, plastic. Now need to order new ones and figure out how to replace them!

Singer 99 not feeding heavy thread.


Unfortunately, your domestic machine was not made to sew leather. It can probably sew lighter weight leather with a lighter weight thread. Your thread is most likely too heavy for the machine you are using so it is not able to pick it up properly.

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

Can't pick up bobbin thread when I do manage to get the bobbin thread through . the machine works away making the holes but not sewing Singer 7462


Unfortunatlly if it will not pick up thread, it is possibly out of time. But before you go changing the timing, make certain it is threaded correctly, the bobbin is threaded correctly. If they are all good see my tip on time a sewing machine.
