Toyota RS2000, problems with shuttle hook

I have a Toyota RS2000, I've been using it for basic sewing but tried to make curtains recently. (Quite thick fabric and I'm not sure if this is what started the problem)
The machine was working fine until I had to change the bobbin thread, on starting to sew again, I found it would not work.
The shuttle hook and the bobbin appear to be the problem. The needle does not pull the bottom thread up and keeps getting caught on its way round - is this a problem with the timing?
I've done all the usual things, changed the needle, re-threaded, oiled, had a good clean, checked the bobbin winder is off.
I can rotate the handwheel both forwards and backwards ok, and have watched the thread repeatedly getting caught.
Can any body help?

My suggestion is to have it checked, sometimes sewing thick fabric on some machines can cause a problem.

How to use a twin needle on my SR2000 toyota sewing machine

First, verify that your machine can use a twin needle. Most machines take will use a twin needle will have separate thread guides and duel thread spool pins.

To thread it, thread one thread all the way through one of the needles and then thread the second thread through to the second needle. This will help keep the threads from twisting.

Sounds like you are describing the hook. Perhaps the owner's manual would be assistance. We don't know the make/model of your machine so are really unable to help. There are some videos on YouTube that show how to install a shuttle and bobbin case, but machines differ.

How do i install a bobbin in a toyota rs2000 please

Your machine has a removable bobbin case and vertical rotary hook (front loading) so it is very alike to many other machines in that you insert the bobbin into the bobbin case in a clockwise direction, pull the thread into the tension spring on the case, then place the case into the front of the rotary hook while pulling out the little latch on the case, then release it to secure into the rotary hook. The latch usually goes into the "12" position on the rotary hook, there should be a little indentation for it.

If you go to this page you can download Toyota RS2000 manual and full instructions and drawings are there about page 8.

If you go to, there is lots of helpful sewing machine pages too, general threading up, trouble shooting and getting the right needle for the job. How you wind the bobbin is important and you need to put it into the bobbin case the right direction so the thread comes off the bobbin then reverses direction through the tension spring.

Great video on You tube too which should help you

visually its so much easier than trying to describe the steps. But once you've mastered a bobbin case and bobbin system, they are all very similar between makes and models.
