Double check the upper and lower tensions they often need to be changed to suit types of fabric and threads

I have a singer sewing machine 5932. it will not pick up its thread from bobbin. it will not sew. i have checked everything i know . i know a little about sewing machines.


Try installing a brand new needle. Confirm it is installed facing the correct direction in the machine. A bent/.damaged needle or one that is installed incorrectly frequently will not pick up the bobbin thread.

If you've confirmed it's correct and still doesn't pick up the bobbin thread, then it's likely the machine has been knocked out of time, ie the needle and hook are out of sync. Search for sewing machine timing or take it for service.

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

How to thread the bobbin


Are you trying to thread the bobbin for winding or for sewing?

For sewing, make sure the needle is fully up and then release the bobbin cover plate. Insert the bobbin so that the bobbin rotates counter-clockwise. Pull the thread through the slot at the center-front of the bobbin case. Hold down the bobbin with a finger then bring the thread to the left and through the slot on that side. You should here a clicking sound when you pull on the thread. Leave 6" of thread free and replace the cover plate. Refer to the manual (page 12) for pictures.

Many Singer sewing machine manuals are available for sale or download here: http://www.singerco.com/accessories/instruction-manuals . The direct link to the manual for the 2662 is here: http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/429_2662_efs.pdf . See page 11 and 12.

If the bobbin thread isn't feeding, clean the hook and surrounding area. Then with the presser foot down, retry. If you aren't hearing the clicking sound when the thread is pulled, you may need the bobbin tension adjusted. There is a small set screw for the adjustment but it's really easy to damage the threads. If you still have a problem, the bobbin case or shuttle race may need to be replaced (See http://parts.singerco.com/CPpartCharts/2_2999/2662.pdf for the parts breakdown).

I hope this helps.

The needle thread will not pick up the bobbin thread. the bobbin mechanism turns but it doesnt catch the thread.


Most of the time, it is because of the needle. Try a new needle and make sure that the flat side is facing the rear. Hope this helps you,

More than likely you have a broken vertical shaft gear.

When you turn the handwheel you should see the sewing hook moving under the bobbin case.

If not, take it to a sewing repair person and it should cost somewhere around $100 to repair.
