How long of a thread tail do you have coming out of your bobbin area, should be at least 6 inches after you put through your tension disc. Read your manual, if you do not have one go online to singerco.com and download one for free

Thread caught in pfaff 1475 shuttle


Spray a little WD40 on the broken thread, it makes it easier to pull out, also use dental picks to get in there.

Why won't my Bernina Activa 140 sew the blind hem stitch?


Are you absolutley sure you're not getting a problem with stitch formation on, for example, wide zig-zag. Check again, using a different colour top and bottom and make sure that the stitch is being formed properly with only the top colour on top and bottom colour on the bottom. It sounds as though the bottom loop is not being picked-up by the hook properly. Make sure you've thoroughly cleaned-out any fluff under the stitch-plate and remove the hook/shuttle and give the hook race a good clean and give it a single drop of oil, even if you've got the lightweight part-plastic hook/shuttle fitted.

The needle won't pick up the bobbin thread? Seems


I think you mean the shuttle is not picking up the top thread. There are many reasons why this can happen. The best way to find out which is to leave the cover off the bobbin compartment and turn the machine slowly by hand while watching things happen for a few cycles - best to have a piece of material in place as well (but not in your line of sight).
As the needle begins to rise, the top thread should form a loop for the shuttle to pick up. If no loop forms, the needle could be too fat for the thread, the thread could be sticking to the needle, the pick-up arm could be out of time (unlikely), or the thread tension could be wrong (or the machine not threaded correctly).
If a loop forms, but the shuttle does not pick up up, the needle could be bent (take it off and roll it on a flat surface),or in backwards (loop forming opposite to shuttle), or the material (or your manner of feeding it) causing the needle to be deflected away from the shuttle. On some machines, it is also possible to loosen a clamp and move the shuttle closer to the needle, but obviously that is a last resort (unless it has come loose or been forced away).
There are other possibilities, but usually it's the simplest thing. Try changing the needle?

Brother pe 150 needle wont pick up thread from bobbin changed needle


Check that the needle is in the right way, flat shank to the back. If it is around backwards, the shuttle hook won't be catching the thread at the back of the needle to form the stitch.

My brunswick vibrating shuttle will work but it wont pick up the thread from the shuttle. I have thread the shuttle several time just like the owners manual says but it still wont pick up the thread. ...


Check to make sure the flat side of the needle is in the proper orientation. If it's turned the wrong way, you will experience this problem. Also make sure the needle is threaded from the proper direction.
Hopefully this will solve your problem. <Ray>

The needle does not pick up the bobbin thread


Hi!

There may be so many reasons due to which the needle does not pick up the bobbing thread like---

The upper thread could be tangled. Remove the thread commpletely from the machine. The correct size spool cap should be used for the size of the thread spool. Re-thread the machine. Remove the bobbin and make sure the bobbin is threaded properly in the shuttle race. Remove any loose threads or lint in the shuttle race. You could be holding the needle thread too tight. Hold the thread lightly to keep the end from going down into the shuttle. The needle could be thread incorrectly. Thread the needle eye from the front to the back. The needle could be bent or improperly inserted. Install a new needle with the flat side of the needle facing the back.

Please do rate this solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.

Machine problem


Hi!

There are so many reasons due to which the thread is not picking up from the bobbin like:

The upper thread could be tangled. Remove the thread completely from the machine. The correct size spool cap should be used for the size of the thread spool. Re-thread the machine. Remove the bobbin and make sure the bobbin is threaded properly in the shuttle race. Remove any loose threads or lint in the shuttle race.

You could be holding the needle thread too tight. Hold the thread lightly to keep the end from going down into the shuttle.

Shuttle


The bobbin should be placed in the shuttle, with the needle at the top end travel. You can watch the shuttle move as the hand wheel is turned.
