SOURCE: Consew 206RB, threading problem?

This machine has a safety clutch which is designed to protect the hook mechanism.To access it, place the machine on it's back. About 8-10 inches from the right side you will see an assembly on the main shaft. You need to hold this assembly with a push button located on the bed of the machine while you turn the handwheel. It will click in place when it is in the correct position. Once you've done this the machine should be back in time so it will sew.Hold the top thread ,turn the handwheel and draw the bottom thread up before you begin sewing. Place a piece of fabric under the foot , turn the wheel by hand to make sure there is no binding and that the thread is being picked up.

SOURCE: needle thread will not pick up bobbin thread

Needle may need to be changed. Be sure it is the correct needle for the machine.

SOURCE: my Juki DL 5555 won't pick up bobbin thread

It is possible that you have the bobbin in backwards. Try inserting the bobbin so that the thread pulls in the opposite direction than it currently does. Also, sometimes you have to really push the bobbin case in to make sure it snaps into place. Other than that, you may have a dull needle...try replacing it, or it just may need an overhaul.

SOURCE: Not picking up the Bobbin thread

Sounds like you have to take off the throat plate and clean out threads under it.  Sometime they ball up and prevent the needle from going down and catching the bobbin thread. You can't see themuntil you take off the plate.  Follow the directions.  It is easy.

Probably just the needle. Try turning it 180 degrees

My Juki LU-563 stopped picking up the bobbin thread, changed needle, took out bobbincase to look for thread, none, still won't sew because of bobbin thread not being picked up.


If you've properly installed a brand new needle that is correct for the machine, threaded it correctly, checked that the bobbin is installed correctly and the bobbin tension threaded properly, most likely the machine is out of time. In other words, the needle is arriving at the bobbin at the wrong time in order to intercept the bobbin. (You can open the bobbin area, hand rotate the handwheel and watch how and where the needle moves in relation to the bobbin to see where and why it is not connecting.) You can search the internet for web sites and videos that discuss machine timing or you can take it for service.

The Bobbin Assembly will turn in reverse but not forward Juki LU-563


Most likely the bobbin retainer has been bent. Turn it over by hand with the power off and look carefully, you will prolly see it.

Can't get Juki tension right


which tension is wrong
if thread is bunching up under material increase the tension of the needle thread if the bottom thread is loose then increase the bobbin thread tension
each thread result for above or below material will indicate which thread to alter the tension on

My juki hzl35z will not pick up the bobbin thread suddenly! Help!


Upper thread breaks
needle may be in backwards
Raise the needle bar to the highest point, then loosen the clamp screw to remove the old needle, place the new needle in the clamp with the flat side to the back of the machine
round needle--the groove in the needle should face away from the shaft.
Push the needle all the way up to the stop or as far as it will go, then tighten the needle clamp screw
upper tension may be to tight
the needle may be bent or damaged
thread may be hanging up in bobbin case--check area for loose threads or lint

I recently received a Juki TL-98Q and a long arm quilting machine. Everything is set up and I have put two sheets with cotton batting between them on the machine so that I can practice. I cannot get...


Hi Donna:
This has two parts; 1) pick up thread, and 2) needle hole direction.
1) To begin and pick up the bobbin thread, typically I start without any material under the arm. Begin with a tail of thread about 6" long pulled out from the bobbin, leave it loose. Then holding taunt, onto about 3" of the upper thread after it leaves the needle, I cycle the machine once. Then it should have captured the bobbin thread. Raise the pressure foot (with the needle 'UP') and slide something between that gap to pull out both threads (Upper and Lower), a ruler or your thread trimming scissors are handy for this. Pull the threads and you should see both upper and lower threads now, ready to sew. Apology for covering this basic item, but . . .
2) As you move into 'new' machines, sometimes the needle is no longer setup with the hole front to back. The gotcha is that on some (bigger) machine the hole goes side to side (yes the needle is rotated a 1/4 turn). As a rule of thumb, the thread goes through the needle and points right at the hook. Small machines may have the bobbin right 'behind' the needle. Larger machines often have the bobbin (and hook) beside (often to the right) of the needle. That means to install the needle with the hole going left and right, and the cutout groove pointed to the side with the hand-wheel.
End.
