Question about Singer 7466 Mechanical Sewing Machine

I can't get the bobbin thread to pick up. I just changed to a heavier needle and thread above. Would not pick up with light thread in bobbin, so loaded a bobbin with heavier thread, also. Took apart and cleaned, still no luck.

I don't think that you can mix threads and have it work smoothly. They always said to have about the same weight and type in both.

Why doesn't needle thread pick up bobbin thread?


1. Make sure the bobbin has about two inches of thread away from the bobbin. Also, make sure the bobbin has been adjusted properly for tension.
2. While turning the hand wheel keep the needle thread pulled towards the back. The bobbin thread should come up above the throat plate.
NOW, IF THIS DIDN'T WORK: Take the machine to a repairman to be timed. This is when the bobbin hook (sharp thing around bobbin) picks up the needle thread. It has got to be at exactly the right time when the needle is going back upward.

I have a Juki HZL-K85. I changed to a heavier thread for outdoor material, the thread bunched up and the machine made a crunch noise. I got the fabric free, but now the bobbin thread is not being picked...


Check the needle to see if it is bent. If not then check the needle to hook timing. Turn the hand wheel until the needle is at it's lowest position. Start to bring the needle upward. As the needle gets to the edge of the hook/bobbin race the point of the hook should pass slightly above and behind the needle. If it isn't the timing is out. I would suggest bringing it to a trusted sewing machine repair person to reset the hook timing and check for any other damage.

Needle will not pick up bobbin thread (Bernina 830) despite tightening handwheel therefore no stitching. Have cleaned bobbin mechanism and have checked and rechecked bobbin threading. Have tightened


Make sure needle is inserted with the scarf(small indentation above needle eye) to the back and fully inserted. Otherwise it could be out of time which would require a technician.

Will not pick up bobbin thread


Unusual for this machine. Check to be sure the needle is inserted with the flat side to the back of the machine. If it is, remove the needle plate, bobbin and bobbin case. Turn the hand wheel slowly toward you and see if the point of the hook is above or below the eye of the needle when the hook point is aligned behind the needle. If the eye is above the point of the hook the machine is out of time and best taken to qualified technician.
