Singer 7436 not picking up bobbin thread

My sewing machine can no longer pick up the bobbin thread. Furthermore, the needle is scrapping against something below the bobbin thread holder. I have changed the needle in case of a bent one, and all attempts have yielded the same problem. 
I believe the problem may be resolved with retiming my Singer, but I have no idea how to under take this. If someone could provide from ideas and possibly help for retiming, it would be greatly appreciated.

    The bobbin case of my Singer 9020 sewing machine got jammed and now it can no longer pick up the bobbin thread. I've order a new bobbin case, but I think the timing might be off aswell.

Be sure needle is inserted correctly with the flat side in the proper position. Rethread the machine and try again. If it still won't work you have a timing problem which requires a technician or a good mechanic.

loosen the screw on the larger of the two feed gears (not bevel gears). Retigten so that the feed teeth start to rise right when the needle starts to rise and fall right when the needle starts to go into the fabric. Make the setting the same. i.e. when the feed teeth start to rise, how high is the needle (2mm, 3mm, etc.)? set the feed timing so the teeth rise and fall with the needle at the same height going in and coming out, this assures that the fabric only feeds when the needle is out of the fabric.

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
