On my machines the bobbin only moves due to the timing of the needle, so I wonder if you need to check the needle, make sure its in the correct position etc

My upper thread wont pick up the bobbin thread suddenly. How do I fix that problem?


Install a brand new needle. A bent/dull/damaged needle sometimes will not pick up bobbin thread.

Check that the needle is installed facing the correct direction.

Also check that the bobbin is wound smoothly, the bobbin is turning the correct direction in the bobbin case, and the bobbin tension is threaded correctly.

If it still will not pick up the bobbin thread, there is most likely a timing issue, ie the needle is arriving at the wrong time to intercept the bobbin thread. Search the internet for sewing machine timing discussions or take it for service.

CHECK THESE FIRST::
NEW NEEDLE.
MAKE SURE NEEDLE IS INSERTED THE RIGHT DIRECTION. LOOK AT YOUR INSTRUCTION BOOK.
MAKE SURE INSERTED IS TOTALLY INSERTED.

I have a brother ls-2150 I can't pick cotton up from the bobbin


Try installing a brand new needle (verify it is installed correctly). If it still does not pick up the bobbin thread, the needle/hook may be out of time, requiring service.

Needle not picking up bobbin thread how can I fix this ?


Try installing a brand new needle. Sometimes a bent/damaged needle will not pick up the bobbin thread.

Check that the bobbin thread is loaded properly.

If the problem continues, take it for service as the needle/hook timing can be off.

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

Bobbin house is not lined up with the needle for a full turn. How can I fix this?


Your machine is out of time. This means that your bobbin casing is not rotating at the right time to be able to grab the thread from your needle. You should take it to the mechanic to have it fixed.

Needle wont catch bobbin thread. Think timing is out.


First change your needle... it's probably bent and make sure you are using a needle FOR Denim in a size 18. Hand run the machine... if you still feel it hitting something... it is out of time. Take it in for repair.
