If you have put a new needle in the correct way round and it does not pick up the thread you may need to retime the machine, if you email me I can attach full instructions.

The needle is not picking up the lower thread, I have cleaned the machine but the bobbin is not being picked up


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

Needle goes down but don't pick up the bobbin thread. It come up and tell me that my upper or lower thread is cut.


try changing the needle
try rethreading the machine top and bobbin
make sure to use every thread guide-this is improtant for the
thread tension
make sure the bobbin is turned correctly in the bobbin case
also could be a problem with the computer motherboard
or there could be a problem with the timing

When i turn the handwheel towards me to lower the needle to pick up the bobbin thread, it lowers but doesn't pick up the bobbin thread...


I had this same problem and I was told to make sure the bobbin is in with the thread coming out counter-clockwise and it solved the problem for me on all three of my machines. A lot of times the needle will pick it up but you have to do a full rotation on the handwheel. I hope that helps

Check the needle to see if it's damaged
check the needle to see if it's in backwards
Make sure the bobbin has a 3-5 inch thread tail
Then make sure the top thread has a 3-5 inch tail
Then hold the top thread tail with your fingers (away from the needle)
& use the hand wheel on the right hand side of the machine to slowly
Lower the needle in the bobbin area & see if the bobbin thread will pick
Up that way

The top thread won't catch the bobbin thread to pull it through. It almost seems like it doesn't go around to pick it up. Or is the bobbin thread supposed to pop up more for pick up? This is my Mom's...


check the needle to see if it's damaged
have a thread tail for the top thread & bobbin thread of 3-4 inches
try this & see if it helps you
make sure there's a 3-4 inch bobbin thread then, hold the top thread tail (3-4 inches) with your fingers away from the needle & then use the handwheel on the right side of the machine & lower the needle down into the bobbin area & see if it pick up the bobbin thread that way
make sure there's no lint or loose threads in bobbin area

My bobbin thread will not thread. When I bring the needle down, it comes up without the bobbin thread. The mechanism moves, but no thread. How do I fix this problem?


check the bobbin to make sure it's not warped
check the needle to make sure it's not bent-roll on flat surface to see if it roll correctly
make sure the bobbin is in the bobbin case correctly
make sure you have a 3 to 4 inch tail on the bobbin-so the upper thread can pick it up easily
make sure you have a 3 to 4 inch tail on upper thread also as it picks up the lower thread
or you can hold the upper thread with your hand to the side of the machine & use the handwheel to lower the needle as it picks up the lower thread
pull both threads to the back behind the needle
make sure there is no lint or loose threads in the bobbin area

Needle will not pick up bobbin thread when sewing


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

Picking up bobbin thread


First easy thing to check, are you using the correct length needle.
If this is not the problem then somehow the needle bar has moved and the the needle depth is to high or the timing is wrong..
Unless you really know what you are doing then I am afraid a sewing machine tech needs to reset the needle depth and subsequently the timing.
