White 2037 twin needle keeps breaking thread

Thread breakage occurs commonly with mis-threading. Be sure to ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading the top thread. Also, since you are using 2 threads, thread one completely and then thread the other so the threads do not get twisted in the thread path. If your machine has duel tension disks, thread each tension disk separately with a single thread. Setting the thread spools to turn opposite directions may help.

Also, make sure the needle eye is the right size for the thread. Thick or thin thread could break easily in the wrong needle.

Also, use only good quality thread--no bargain bin or old threads!

White 2037 Bobbin thread not spinning and noticed the needle hitting bottom of bobbin casing

it's sounds like the machine could be out of time & the machine needs to be checked at a sewing machine shop, to find out for sure.

Top thread is fine bottom thread all jumbled

I've had the same problem - jumbled threads on the underneath side of fabric. My solution was this: I had recently purchased new bobbins and they turned out to be the wrong size. I went back to the ones that came with the machine and the problem disappeared. So, have you recently purchased new bobbins? They might not be the correct ones. Funny, in all of the posted possible solutions below, not one mentioned this possibility. turns out my new ones were not as tall and were slightly concave instead of taller and flat. Check your machine manual for the correct bobbin part number.

The bobbin thread will not pick up. The machine had jammed and I forced the wheel and can't get bobbin thread to pick up. When I thread manually, I only get holes, no stitches. Is it a timing belt?

check your needle to see if it's bent---roll on flat surface to see if it roll correctly
on some sewing machines when the thread comes off the thread take up lever it can cause the machine to jam
also if the bobbin thread becomes tangled it can jam
check the bobbin area for lint or loose threads
try having a top thread tail & bobbin thread tail of 3-4 inches
try holding the top thread tail & turn the handwheel on the right side on the machine manually & put the needle down into the bobbin area & see if the bobbin thread will pick up that way

The bottom stitching is loose it is just like the bobbin tension was lost in the middle of sewing

If the thread is lopy on the undrsde:
tighten the needle tension
check the needle for bent or burrs, put thread through the needle and pull back and forth by hand if the thread shreds, burr in needle, change needle
make sure thread is the same on top and in the bobbin are the same weight

Bobbin jumps out of place while I'm sewing and jumbles the thread. I took it to a repairman, it worked for about 3 weeks. Now, same old problem.

I had a similar problem but found it only happened when I used plastic bobbins. I've been using metal bobbins and haven't had the problem again. Hope this helps.

Rebecca, I don't know if you ever received a solution, but after my experience with my White 2038, I would advise you to do exactly what you said. "Throw it out". I've struggled for a week with a new machine, found parts missing after opening the box and generally feel ripped off. I am throwing mine out! I purchased a Singer yesterday and it is sewing beautifully with no problems.

Good luck.

Bobbin thread won't catch

I've just had this exact problem with my model 2037. The problem, according to 3 shops I've taken mine to, is that the shuttle hook (the metal piece that the bobbin sits in) is broken and needs replaced. Problem is, the piece is next to impossible to find.
