Make sure you have a good needle in and that it is in the correct way round, if that does not work you may need to retime the machine but I need the model number

Having trouble picking up the thread from the bobbin


Try a brand new needle. Verify that the machine is threaded properly--both upper and bobbin threads.

If it is still not picking up the bobbin thread, it is likely there is a needle/hook timing issue requiring service.

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

Needle will not pick up bobbin thread


Try installing a brand new needle. Rethread the machine from the very beginning. The machine could be out of time, ie the needle and hook timing do not match.

Why is thread getting caught and unable to pick up the bobbin thread?


try tightening the needle thread tension as it appears to be too lose
try loosing of the bobbin thread tension a fraction as it may be to hard to pull out of the bobbin case under the spring
changing thread sizes and material thickness generally requires a tension adjustment of the threads

I am having trouble getting my singer 6199 sewing machine to sew. The top thread will not pick up bot thread. I tried changing needle, changing bobbin, rewinding bobbin, rethreading machine & bobbin,...


did you get the needle in correctly--all the way up into the needle holder
& the flat side of the needle goes to the back of the machine

also after you check the needle & it's in correctly it's very possible that the machine is out of time & a sewing machine repair technican would have to retime the machine
