Impossible to explain how to time a sewing machine you need to be shown. Basically it entails setting the needle depth then making sure the hook passes just above the eye of the needle at a set height as the needle is rising, this ensures the hook catches the upper thread. Also the hook needs to be set a specific distance from the needle. Sounds easy but sometimes it can be very difficult and fiddly job.

Model 4075 white sewing machine problem with thread from bobbin


1. Replace thread with good thread. (Check by holding to light to see if there is fuzz).
2. Adjust the bobbin tension. The tension on top is set to three and the bobbin tension should be equal to this amount.
3. Replace needle.
4. Check the top tension with tension foot down to see if the thread can move or does it get stuck? If it gets stuck the tension control may need adjusted or cleaned.
5. Pull the bobbin thread above the throat plate and pull on the thread. It must have some tension but not get stuck.
TENSION TENSION TENSION IS THE PROBLEM!

Top thread not picking up bobbin thread


try changing your needle and make sure the flat side is toward the back of the machine. If that does not work then it will have to be retimed

Elna 9000 bobbin problem


try changing the needle,,make sure the needle & thread & fabric are correct for each other
make sure the bobbin is turned the right way
it's also possible that when the needle gets jammed or broken that the machine can become out of time
and would have to be retimed at a sewing machine shop

My needle on my brother CS-100 sewing machine keeps getting stuck on the bobbin case. I think it may need to be retimed but do not know how to do this.


before you do that, make sure that the machine is threaded correctly. often when the needle is threaded from the wrong side, the thread is wrapped around the top wheels incorrectly, or the bobbin is not threaded right, it will cause the needle to get jammed in the bobbin. however, if this does not work, check their hotline and ask the maker what you should do. you can also go to a local sewing machine store and have them take a look at it.
