Try a new needle, (insert with flat side facing away from you). Sometimes the needle is bent and will not pick up the thread.

My sewing machine will not pick up the bobbin thread


If a sewing machine fails to pick up the bobbin thread, it's usually because the needle isn't fully in the needle bar... OR its the wrong size needle for the machine.

Sewing Machine Needles


Did you know sewing machine needles can be machined wrong? If your machine isn't picking up the thread, try replacing the needle. If the scarf isn't in the correct place, the hook can't pick up the thread.

My brother pe150 embroidery machine does not pick up bottom thread and wont sew


try changing the needle
rethread the machine--use every thread guide
make sure the bobbin is not warped
make sure the bobbin is inserted correctly in the case
it's very possible that the timing of the machine is off & the machine would need to be checked at a sewing machine shop

My top thread isn't picking up the bottom thread, and my needle is inserted right and not bent, i dont know what else it could be?


if you are sure needle is right then the timing could be off, sequence between needle going down and hook rotating around tocatch the needle thread. usually a tech repair.

It stopped picking up the bobbin thread while sewing. In the middle of a zig zag sewing project, it stopped picking up the bobbin thread. I cleaned the bobbin area and needle area and tried again and it...


Hello,

You can take the slide plate off, that your needle goes through and watch to see if the arm grabs the bobbin thread, if you can get it to pick up, than slide scissors or something flat under your needle and manually pull both threads through, replace the plate.

Your bobbin thread could be wound to tight or spliced threads on it, and your tension needs to be adjusted. If your using a pedal, try setting to a slower speed.

I would try a different bobbin and thread it manually as in the step I mentioned, if you can't see the arm grabbing it, you will need to check to see if you have loose threading jammed in youir machine, if this isn't the case and adjusting the tension dosen't help...than you will need to replace the bobbin casing.

Kind regards!

My machine is new and worked briefly but now . . . . the machine is threaded correctly and the bobbin is placed correctly. When turning the knob for the initial pick up of the bobbin thread, it does not...


You have described your problem just fine. Have you just changed the needle in your machine? If so, check it is in the right way, you want the flat shank to the back.

The needle has a scarf (scoop out) at the back - if it is facing to the front then the rotary hook (bit that goes around the bobbin and catches the top thread) can't catch the needle thread behind the needle.

Also check needle is fully up into the housing, this could also cause problem.

I'd suggest that you visit www.sewingabout.com and check out the pages on general sewing machine use, care and threading up, lots of helpful pictures and information which may be of assistance to you.

If it isn't your needle backwards (very easy to get wrong, happens all the time), then the timing could be out, which isn't so easy, but as its new I'd be very suprised if this was the fault. Just check needle, make sure top and bottom threads are threaded correctly and have another go. Also, remember to turn flywheel towards you.

My machine isnt threading the bobin underneath.


Do you have the right needle in your machine? There are some Sergers that take shorter needles and I have has some customers put those short needles on thier sewing machine. If the needle is too short it cannot pick up the bottom thread.

If that isn't the problem I would also try to rethread the machine and the bobbin. It sounds very simple, but sometimes you can miss a step

If none of the above don't work, you may have a timing issue. Have you run over a pin? or had the needle come down on a presser foot? Sometimes these sudden stops can knock the machine out of time.

Top thread doesn't pick up the bobbin thread (Toyota sewing m.)


Hi! This may sound silly, but if you changed your needle and put it in backwards (which is easy to do), the top thread won't pick up the bottom thread. Take your needle out and check the flat side of the needle shank--which way is it facing? With a lot of the newer machines, the flat side goes to the back, but check your manual to make sure.

Let me know if this helps, ok?

Happy Sewing!
