Question about Sewing Machines
I cannot get the needle thread to pick up bobbin thread no matter what I do. I have cleaned the machine, changed thread, rethreaded machine, changed bobbins and put in a brand new never before used needle. Help! lost 46 I have a Singer Millennium Series Model #6423 and it started making a different noise in the bobbin area. Now it will not pick up the bobbin thread at all.

SOURCE: raising bobbin thread
These machines are timed by belt and go out of time a lot. Check and see that when the needle passes through the plate and travels upward 1/8" at this point the rotating hook should be right behind and above the eye in the needle,my guess is that it is out probably 1 tooth on the timing belt and can usually be corrected by removing the bobbin case and holding the rotating hookk with on ehand and forcing the handwheel with the other hand which will cause the belt to jump a cog and should put your machine back in time I hope this helps

Have you reset the tensions for this machine, look in your manual and follow directions. If this is an Elegante there is also a set of instructions on the machine. On the LCD screen there is a picture of a sewing machine with a question mark, touch it, find Troubleshooting and touch that then find the problem you are having and read. If this does not help take it to a Brother dealer and have it reset so as to keep you machine in good running order.
