Question about Brother XL-5340 Mechanical Sewing Machine
I know the solution has something to do with adjusting the bobbin hook, but I'm not qualified to try and make the adjustment without detailed instructiions. My VX808 top thread isn't being caught by the bobbin hook; the timing is off. Does anyone know how to correct the timing? I do have instructions for my Kenmore 15804 which is similar but not quite the same.

Check the top and bottom tensions make sure they are compatible to the needle size and type of thread being used

SOURCE: Bottom thread will not catch
Unplug the machine and remove the needle plate so that the bobbin case if fully exposed. Lift out the bobbin case and the cup that it sets in will be visible. Locate the "hook" on this cup. It is a finger with a sharp point at the upper edge of the cup. The hook is what grabs the thread from the needle while sewing.
If the hook catches the thread from the needle, put everything back together and try threading again.

Check the needle to see if the flat side is facing to the back of the machine. This is usually how the needle should be inserted.
Thread the machine with the presser foot up.
Hold onto the thread tail at the needle and hand walk the needle down and then back up to pull the bobbin thread up.
Take both threads under the presser foot and to the back of the machine before you begin to sew.
