Same thing just happened to mine. After pretty much taking the whole thing apart, it ended up being that the teeth busted off one of the plastic gears.

Threading the bobbin thread


try rethreading the machine top and bobbin--make sure to use every
thread guide
try changing the needle--make sure the needle is turned the right way
and inserted correctly into the needle holder
make sure the bobbin is turned the right way in the bobbin case
and if the machine still will not pick up the bobbin thread it would be a
good idea to have the machine checked to see if the timing is ok.

here is a link for a free manual just incase you don't have one

I am having trouble getting my singer 6199 sewing machine to sew. The top thread will not pick up bot thread. I tried changing needle, changing bobbin, rewinding bobbin, rethreading machine & bobbin,...


did you get the needle in correctly--all the way up into the needle holder
& the flat side of the needle goes to the back of the machine

also after you check the needle & it's in correctly it's very possible that the machine is out of time & a sewing machine repair technican would have to retime the machine

Singer sewing machine won't pick up bobbin thread


Make sure that the area is clean and free of lint. Change the needle and rethread the machine.

I hit a pin with my Singer Stylist 7258. It jammed. I changed the needle, rethreaded it, and turned it off and on, but it snarls up thread under the fabric, and seems that the thread does not always loop...


Good that you changed the needle. Did you rethread just the needle or did you rethread the machine? You may have already taken these steps, but if not, here is what I would suggest:

1. Replace the old needle (which you did), even if it looks ok, as it may be bent or have a tiny burr or other damage that isn't easily visible. Make sure the needle is seated properly - facing forward and fully inserted.
2. **Completely rethread the machine, making sure the thread is going through the take-up lever. It can easily pop out when the machine jams, and you can't always see that the thread is out of place. That could explain why the thread doesn't loop properly around the bobbin.
3. Remove the bobbin and clean any knotted thread or lint from around the bobbin carrier. Canned air is great for cleaning the lint.
4. Replace the bobbin, making sure the thread-end is clipped neat, not frayed or knotted.
5. Try sewing on some practice fabric to make sure the stitches are going to form properly before returning to your sewing project.
Good luck!

Bottom thread too loose; tried rethreading top thread, cleaning bobbin case, refilling bobbin, changing needle, adjusting top tension


Check for correct bottom thread tension.
It's provided by a flat spring on the bobbin holder.
When the bobbin is correctly installed, pulling on the thread
should meet with slight resistance, and the bobbin should spin without
trying to jump out of the bobbin holder.

The bobbin is not preforming properly. It jumps around when I sew and then on the back of the fabric there is a ton of excess thread.


Change needle
Clean under needle plate where feed dogs are for lint
Clean bobbin area for lint or loose threads
Rethread machine top thread make sure to get every thread guide
& bobbin
Check tension 3 or 4 is usually good

if the bobbin is top loading they will flop around some when the start getting close to empty
if it's a bottom loading bobbin & case then it's not inserted correctly
