Bobbin drum not turning

The top thread is not catching the bobbin thread. Turning the hand wheel with the bobbin cover off, I noticed that the bobbin drum does not turn, sometimes. I can hold slight pressure on the bobbin drum and still turn the
hand wheel. I've been told it was a set screw loose but I don't know where to look for the set screw. Also, before tightening the set screw will I have to set the timing?
Can you tell me the reason the bobbin drum does not turn and how to set the timing if needed?

here is the manual for your unit. You may want to check the bobbin settings. Go through the troubleshooting. Then you may want to have it serviced after you have exhausted all those attemepts.
Thanks,

SOURCE: bobbin thread is too loose, I 've tried tightening

If you have a separate bobbin case there might be a tiny piece of lint under the bobbin tension spring.

How do i fix the top thread just tangling, looping on the shutter race?


1. Make sure that you are using the right bobbin case. (LX3125) 2. Adjust the tension of the bobbin case. (I've sent a guide for this) Your's is considered the older style.
3. Make sure the bobbin that is used is the right one. If it is too long or too wide it will cause problems.
4. When you insert the bobbin case make sure the lock handle goes down flat with the bobbin case. Also, feel the bobbin case for rough snags.
5. Replace the needle. Insert it the new one in the right direction.
6. Thread the machine (while pressure foot up) according to the directions. While threading give small tugs to check for snags.
7. Place the tension on four. It is ok to feel by hand if this is excess tension.
8. While turning the hand wheel towards you the bobbin thread should rise above the throat plate.
9. This should be ok now. Try it on some old rags. Don't forget to set that bobbin case.

Needle wont pick up bobbin thread


START WITH: SHARP NEEDLE (NEW), GOOD THREAD (NOT FUZZY-LONG STRANDS), ADJUST TENSION OF BOBBIN AND TOP.
1. Check the bobbin area and make sure the hook(pointed thing) and bobbin are all secure.
2. After you have adjusted the tension and reinstalled the bobbin: Extend three inches of thread from the bobbin.
3. After threading the top place the thread under the pressure foot and hold on to the thread. Turn the hand wheel towards you.
4. The needle has went under the throat plate (feed dogs plate) and begins to rise. You should feel the thread get caught and give a little resistance while you continue to turn the hand wheel.
5. The bobbin thread should come up with the needle thread.
6. If this hasn't taken place check to make sure the needle is inserted the right direction and totally pushed in. Retry again.
7. Look at your bobbin while turning the hand wheel. The needle thread should ride across the bobbin case and exit to the top of the machine again.
8. If these have not worked you will need to have your machine timed or the hook replaced.
ATTACHED IS A GUIDE FOR SETTING THE TENSION.

Why does my thread keep bunching up?


That is called "thread nesting," and several things can cause it. The upper thread enters the bobbin area during sewing, catches the bobbin thread, and as the needle goes up, pulls the stitch tight. Something is catching the upper thread as it goes around. The most common reasons are the bobbin or bobbin case (or both) is improperly inserted; the bobbin is warped (roll it down a flat surface--if it wobbles, it's warped), either the case or the bobbin is not seated evenly, there is a rough spot on the bobbin case that is catching the thread, or your bobbin is loosely/badly wound. You need to rule out the possibilities step by step until you find the cause. First, review your threading procedures from start to finish, using your user's manual. Then, without fabric, turn the hand wheel by hand (ALWAYS towards you) to see if you can see it start to catch. The top thread should rotate smoothly in the bobbin area. You should be able to pin-point the cause that way.

The upper thread will not pick up the bobbin thread


You should do this by putting very slight pressure on the foot control (or turning the wheel by hand) with the machine's pressure foot up. Then pull the threads by hand to the back of the machine. If the upper thread does not catch the lower thread then the bobbin is not correctly threaded in the bobbin case.

Wont pick up


Do this by turning the wheel by hand. The bobbin thread will make a small loop on the way up. Move something thin from front to back, catching the top thread under the needle and the bobbin loop thread will come out. Move both threads towards the back and go!

How do you load the bobbin properly?


Hi there,

Well you may please follow the steps below -
1. Remove the bobbin from the sewing machine. Note: whether you have a drop-in, front or side-loading bobbin on your sewing machine. A drop in bobbin will load from the top, may be via a removable bobbin case cover near the machine-fed dogs. A side or front loading bobbin needs to be loaded into a removable bobbin case under the machine.
2. Choose the right size bobbin for the sewing machine.
3. Wind thread onto your bobbin. Your sewing machine should have a standard thread spool to hold the thread and a short, squat post wide enough for a bobbin.
4. Put the thread and empty bobbin into position on your sewing machine. Wrap the thread around the bobbin to start it. On most machines, disengage the needle by turning the smaller hand-wheel on the machine toward you. Push the bobbin post into position, securing the bobbin into place. Press gently down. Thread should begin to wind neatly onto your bobbin.
5. Break the thread, push the bobbin post back into an inactive position and remove the bobbin. Tighten the hand-wheel. Thread your sewing machine again if necessary before loading the bobbin.
6. Remove the bobbin case cover and put the bobbin into position. The thread should slide through a catch on the bobbin case and up through the cover.
7. Access the bobbin case for a front or side mount bobbin. Lift the catch and remove the removable bobbin holder. Put the bobbin into the holder and run the thread through the holder, bringing it to the front. Lift the catch and slide the bobbin holder back into the case. Hold your needle thread gently forward with your left hand and turn the hand-wheel. The needle thread will pass down into the machine and catch a loop of the bobbin thread. Pull this loop up and slide both threads to the back before beginning to sew.
Good Luck!!

Thanks for using FixYa!!

Is there thread caught in the bobbin case? How far are you turning the wheel and are you holding the end of your bobbin thread out so that the top thread can hook it?

Brother ls2125 bobbin not picking up thread


OK...I have an old singer (from 1964) so I am not sure whether you can do this...

I thread the upper thread as directed.

I stick the bobbin in the bobbin assembly as directed.

LEAVING THE SLIDE DOOR OPEN...I, by hand turn the wheel on the right hand of the machine counter clockwise (towards me). I want the needle go down. The thread from the upper part will enter the bobbin area and will form a loop that goes OVER the top of your bobbin to catch the thread from the bottom.

I keep turning until the machine has complete a cycle where the needle has started from the highest point, dropped to the lowest point (thus forming the loop that passes over the bobbin) and returns back to the highest point).

At this point you will notice that the thread is coming for from the bottom of the machine..I use a scissor to pull the the ends of the thread through. To the top. There should be two ends, one from the top thread, one from the bottom. If you dont believe me..jsut use a bobbin with a different color of thread...you will see what I mean..there will be two threads...one the first color and one the second color.

Good luck!!

Threading the bobbin


Threading the bobbin - winding thread onto the bobbin.

Position the new empty bobbin onto the vertical bobbin rod next to the end wheel. Click the rod to the right to engage drive. Hold the outer end wheel with left hand, and rotate the inner wheel anticlockwise by about a 1/2 turn (it stops) this removes drive from the foot and needle mechanism.

From a spool of thread on the top, thread to a loop/post on the left on the top. Then back to the bobbin you want to wind. Thread through a hole from the inside-out. Hold the thread vertically above the bobbin while you depress the footswitch to start winding. Let go when it's turned a few times.

Move bobbin shaft left, and tighten end wheel after winding enough.

Fitting bobbin-

Move footplate towards you, insert bobbin in hole so that bobbin rotates anticlockwise when thread is pulled, then pull thread into the fine notch towards you. After this position thread away from you, and slide the footplate closed.

To start / load thread. Hold the end 3" of the thread through the needle behind the sewing foot. hand crank towards you to sew first stitch in air. This should retrieve the lower thread - which you can catch with a handy pair of scissors. Then pull both threads rearwards - ready to sew.
