SOURCE: a horrible tangle

This is a bit late, could the bobbin case not be seated properly? You need to put it into place and then turn it clockwise until it seats soundly in the opening. Also, check for burrs...the needle may have left a rough mark on the plastic or metal in the bobbin area. A piece of batting, or even an old knee hi should snag on any rough areas.

you may have the wrong size bobbins. Most likely you have the wrong needles they are not long enough. Check your manual for the correct size.

SOURCE: Bobbin Thread is "birdnesting"

Get out the manual and refer to the maintenance section for cleaning the machine.

Especially the bobbin area. You want to make sure the area around the bobbin case is free of lint and thread.

Use a new bobbin and re-thread the machine, with the presser foot UP.

Install a new needle, again according to the directions in the manual. Installed incorrectly can lead to mis-stitching.

If the problem persits, the timing may need adjusting.

This should be done by the sewing machine tech for Kenmore.

Sewusa.com has a guide for this in the repair section, but you could end up with more problems.

SOURCE: Have a brand new Singer

I would try adjusting the tension on the machine - this sometimes causes the bobbin thread to jam while sewing. Re thread the entire machine including the top thread. Also it is recommended to use new thread as old thread can ball up after time. If no luck I would call the store you purchased the machine from.

My singer pixie plus will not pick up the bobbin thread. how do i fix this.


Install a brand new needle and verify the machine is threaded correctly. Also, use the correct needle for the machine, thread and fabric. If that doesn't help, then the machine is probably out of time and needs service.

The bobbin could be wound loosely or backwards but the bobbin also must be able to go into place and not fall out so check those things first

The upper and lower thread are not locking together in the fabric


The easiest possible option is that the bobbin is not threaded correctly. This happens to my students and 99% of the time the bobbin thread is going the wrong direction, ex: it's flipped to go counter clockwise instead of clockwise.

SINGER MODEL 3130 WILL NOT STITCH CORRECTLY


Have you tried cleaning and oiling your sewing machine.Sometimes old thread gets caught up under the pressure foot near bobbin if not cleaned out the bottom teeth that pull material through will not move bobbin thread up to be caught by needle thread. P.S. Are you sure your using the right needle for the machine? To short of a needle will also cause this problem

Can't get the needle thread to loop over the bobbin thread. The bobbin thread is already thru the hole.


You only need the thread to loop over the bobbin thread to bring up the thread when you are threading the machine. If, you mean it is not sewing after threading then I need more information.
