The main thread is not catching the bobbin thread

The needle bent during sewing and since i put the new one in,the main thread is not catching the bobbin thread when the machine is sewing. think it might be something to do with the hook placement as it doesnt seem to go back far enough to catch the thread. its an E&R Classic sewing machine. (a Toyota brand) please help

It looks like your timing of your bobbin hook is out you will need to have a service man adjust it for you.

My thread is not catching with bobbin thread


Be sure to use a brand new needle. A bent/damaged needle may not connect with the bobbin thread.

If it still does not pick up the bobbin thread, your machine most likely has a timing issue (the needle arrives at the wrong time to intercept the bobbin thread). There are multiple web sites and videos that discuss sewing machine timing. Or take it for service.

Why is bobbin not catching thread?


It could be that the hook timing is adrift but quite likely that the machine is misthreaded or the needle bent. Get a NEW needle, check your handbook for how to insert it and re-read how to thread your machine. The upper thread could be misthreaded or the bobbin not threaded correctly. The bobbin may look like its threaded OK but if the thread is coming off the bobbin in the wrong direction the machine will never see. Hope this helps.

Why won't machine pick up bobbin thread


Check to see if the bobbin is in the bobbin case the correct way. If it is backwards, it will not catch on the hook. Also try putting in a new needle, sometimes, the needle is slightly bent, or not inserted correctly. Hope this helps!

Needle wont catch bobbin thread. Think timing is out.


First change your needle... it's probably bent and make sure you are using a needle FOR Denim in a size 18. Hand run the machine... if you still feel it hitting something... it is out of time. Take it in for repair.

I have a brother pe 770 and the bobbin will not catch the thread. The thread will wrapped and tangled up around the bobbin case and bobbin, but will not catch the bobbin at all. I chcked the needle, it is...


You need to sew the first stitch slowly. Lower the needle by hand and take up carefully. Pull the needle thread up and the bobbin thread should be caught in the formed loop and come with it. Pull them both to the back of the machine and sew.

My machine is a Brother XL5600; I think I am having a shuttle hook problem. When I lower the sewing needle to "catch" the bobbin thread and pull through- it won't catch and pull through. I have changed out...


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. The upper thread could be tangled. Remove the thread completely from the machine. The correct size spool cap should be used for the size of the thread spool. Re-thread the machine according to the directions in the manual.

Place a spool of thread on a spool pin and check the upper threading.
Remove the bobbin and make sure the bobbin is threaded properly in the shuttle race. Remove any loose threads or lint in the shuttle race.

Also please check that the bobbin is installed in its case rightly. Needle thread is too tight. Hold the thread lightly to keep the end from going down into the shuttle.

The needle could be thread incorrectly. Thread the needle eye from the front to the back.
The needle could be bent or improperly inserted and install a new needle with the flat side of the needle facing the back.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

The needle doesn't catch the thread in the bobbin


Are you certain the needle is not bent and that it is in the right way around? Which model is it?(I used to sell them)

Bobbin help please!


Take out the raceway and check for broken threads/lint. Unthread the machine and put in a new needle taking care to insert it correctly. It may be that the needle is slightly bent. Put everything back carefully and check it is running smoothly with NO THREAD first(no bobbin thread either-use an empty bobbin). This will prove there is nothing catching. If it catches when you thread it then you are having a problem with incorrect threading.
