Question about Singer 2732 Mechanical Sewing Machine
I was hemming pants and the bobin got snagged, cleaned it up and now the thread from needle will not catch on bobbin.
My needle broke when hitting a straight pin. I changed the needle and the top thread will not catch the bobbin thread. It's not being caught by the wheel. I tried another needle with the same problem. I just boght this new sewing machine yesterday!
Most likely the machine has been knocked out of time when the needle struck. Take it for service.

SOURCE: a horrible tangle
This is a bit late, could the bobbin case not be seated properly? You need to put it into place and then turn it clockwise until it seats soundly in the opening. Also, check for burrs...the needle may have left a rough mark on the plastic or metal in the bobbin area. A piece of batting, or even an old knee hi should snag on any rough areas.

check that the needle is in the right way round i.e. with cut out on the needle facing into the machine. if this is fine then check that as the needle comes back up from the lowest point that it goes to, that the point on the bobbin case passes just above the hole in the needle, i.e. in the middle of the cut out.(if not it needs re timing) if threaded a small loop should appear at this point for the bottom bobbin to catch if not slacken the top thread and try again.

Hi! Did you by chance, change your needle? If so, make sure you have the flat side of the needle shaft facing the correct direction. If the needle isn't in all the way or the flat side of the shaft facing the right way, the bobbin thread won't pick up.
Let me know if this helps, ok?
