Try to adjust the needle , enough to catch the bobbins thread and not too close to avoid breakage. The needle might be in a higher setting.

Thread on bobbin does not attach to needle when needle is turned down.


Depends what was causing the noise. It could merely have been the build-up of lint and thread. However, something else could be the cause.

First: Install a brand new needle. A bent, damaged, old needle will frequently cause noise because it is striking something it should not. A dull needle will also make a thunking sound as it tries to penetrate the fabric. The needle should be changed about every 8 hours of sewing...a very inexpensive fix!

Also, be sure to following the oiling instructions (if any) in your manual. Use only fresh good quality sewing machine oil and apply only 1-2 drops in each spot as instructed.

If the top thread still fails to pick up the bobbin thread, it is likely the machine has been knocked out of time. Take it for service.

Have you pulled up on your top thread as it loops the bobbin thread? You are supposed to hold on to your top thread with your left hand and then lower your needle with the handwheel, you have to turn the wheel towards you not away from you or else you can mess up the timing. You will see it catch the thread and you will know to pull it up.

Needle will not pick up thread from bobbin on a Brother's machine


This is going to sound silly but its one of the first things I check for... make sure that the needle is in correctly make sure that the flat side is towards the back as you place it in the needle clamp. better yet take the needled out all together and put a new one in just to be sure that it isnt bend

Not picking up the Bobbin thread


Sounds like you have to take off the throat plate and clean out threads under it.  Sometime they ball up and prevent the needle from going down and catching the bobbin thread. You can't see themuntil you take off the plate.  Follow the directions.  It is easy.
