Check to see if the top and bottom are threaded right, if they are then I would say the timing is off

I have kanmore sewing machine its not stiches at all one time noise & stop stiches thered not pick up for bobin its not come out.


Wow. If I understand your attempt at English. Your machine made a noise and now won't sew or pick up the bobbin thread.

First change your needle and make sure it's full inserted and correctly oriented in the needle bar. Do a test stitch on scrap fabric.

If you still have problems.. check the timing. The shuttle hook should just be starting to pass the needle scarf when the needle is at the lowest point of travel.

I hope that helps you. Good luck.

I CANNOT PICK UP THREAD FROM BOBIN TO NEEDLE. I HAVE CORRECT THREAD ON MACHINE AND BOBBIN-BOBIN IS IN CORRECT NEEDLE IS CORRECT. THE MACHINE I HAVE IS THE 3230 ELNA AND it SEEM TO BE SOMETHING WRONG WITH...


* Try to hold the end of the top thread towards to the back of the machine while you turn the hand wheel towards you .* Have the tension on top set to four.
* Check the bobbin tension. It should be set to set to four. This is an equivalent pull with the above tension.
*If this doesn't work the machine will need to be "timed" properly. Your local repairman can help.

My wife has a model 9110 sewing machine. It has stop picking up the thread from the bobin. Can you help on this fix?


Put new needle in

Make sure you have a 3-5 inch thread tail on both top thread & bobbin
Then hold the top thread tail with your fingers (away from the needle)
& use the hand wheel on the right hand side of machine & slowly lower needle into bobbin area & see if it will pick up the bobbin thread that way

rethread the bobbin,,also check the bobbin area for lint or loose threads

if none of these suggestions work, then the machine could be out of time & would need to be repaired

It can't pick up the thread out to sew


Make sure that you have a tail on the bobin thread when in place and a tail on the needle thread, hold the needle thread and turn the wheel to bring up the bobin thread before trying to sew

Top thread keeps breaking during sewing. Tension adjustment does not solve the issue. Also, machine is skipping stiches and will not sew anything but a straight stitch: needle moves in the ziz=zag or...


This could be more than one issue, first I don't think you have the machine threaded correctly. Make sure when you thread that the thread is seated betweeen the tension disc on the top and also, make sure that you have properly but tin the bobin

How do I get the thread from the bottom up so it works


Make sure the machine is all threaded correctly. Then with no material in the machine rotate the hand wheel while holding the upper thread and as long as the machine is in working order and you left a 5-6 inch tail on the bobin thread it should pick it up and bring it to the top.

How do I tighten the tension on the bobin thread I am quitiing with invisible thread on the top and dark blue on the bottom, the bobin thread shows. I don't want that


you can either increase the bottom tension or reduce the top tension .. you will notice a little screw on the bobin case ... that screw adjusts the force on a small flat spring which provides the bottom tension (the thread goes under the spring when properly threaded) .. .. tighten that screw a little to increase bottom tension .. you can pull thread thru the bobin case to get a feel for how much tension you have ... you dont have to turn the screw very far to make a significant difference .. try just 1/4 of a turn at a time .. remember where it was originally set so you can put it back when you are finished with your present project .. the greater the bottom tension the less bobin thread will show at the top ... if you get the tension too high then you might see some puckering as you sew ..

have you tried other thread and a different bobbin?  The tension screw on the bobin case could be too tight.
