I have just picked my power machine up from the repair shop, 90.00 later, it made a thump again and stopped picking up the thread. Something is really wrong that they didn't find....Any suggestions?

Re: Cosew(Cutline )226 not picking up thread

Could be the set screw holding the hook in position wasn't tightened fully and the hook shaft slipped into the proper position, but out of timing. Look to see if the hook is picking up the thread at the very bottom of the needle thrust. That is, just when the needle bar is about to rise, the hook point should snag the thread. If it doesn't then the timing is off - or the hook has to be turned to the proper place and the set screw tightened.

Bobbin thread not being picked up Necchi 7010

This is a tough fix. There is a metal ring with a hook on it that goes around the bobbin. Check that there are no threads jamming the bobbin parts. Short of that, sry its a trip to the repair shop.

Singer Futura II - Model 920 My bottom thread will not pick up and the top thread piles in a ball. I did thread the machine with the presser foot raised. Could there be a tension problem? Also where should...

you might try checking the needle, it could be damaged, bent, or blunt
then see if you can pick up the bobbin thread.
if you still can't pick up the bobbin thread it's possible that the machine could be out of time.. it would need to be serviced by a sewing machine repair shop & they can tell you if your sewing machine is one that has to be oiled or a self oiling machine.

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.

It stopped picking up the bobbin thread while sewing. In the middle of a zig zag sewing project, it stopped picking up the bobbin thread. I cleaned the bobbin area and needle area and tried again and it...


You can take the slide plate off, that your needle goes through and watch to see if the arm grabs the bobbin thread, if you can get it to pick up, than slide scissors or something flat under your needle and manually pull both threads through, replace the plate.

Your bobbin thread could be wound to tight or spliced threads on it, and your tension needs to be adjusted. If your using a pedal, try setting to a slower speed.

I would try a different bobbin and thread it manually as in the step I mentioned, if you can't see the arm grabbing it, you will need to check to see if you have loose threading jammed in youir machine, if this isn't the case and adjusting the tension dosen't help...than you will need to replace the bobbin casing.

Kind regards!
