SOURCE: The needle will not grab the bobbin thread

Double check the needle position when you put your new needle in. It is so easy to put them in backwards or sideways when learning a new machine. Also try checking the thread path of the thread, that it is not wrapped funny.

SOURCE: needle not grabbing the thread

Place a new needle in the machine with the flat side to the back.

Raise the presser foot.

Turn the handwheel until the take-up lever is at it's highest position.

Set the top tension to 5.

Re-thread the machine.

The bobbin thread wont come up when lowering the needle


The bottom thread won't come up?
Make sure you:
-Have the top threaded and through the eye of the needle (Basics are best to check, I've missed it once or twice! lol)
-Are holding the tail of the top thread when you lower your needle and pull it back up (Hold it too tight though, and it might not grab)
-Have an inch or two of "tail" or extra thread for the needle to grab on your bobbin thread (sometimes it won't grab if there's not much there)
-Have all your lower pieces in and secure. (Mine tend to jump around if I'm not putting 'em in right)
If it's still not grabbing, I'm not sure. Sorry, hope it helps.

My needle does not pick up the bobbin thread. I double checked that I threaded the needle correctly and the bobbin seems to be in the right position. The needle doesn't look like it's making contact with...


Make sure that you have the needle's flat side facing the rear of the machine, or else it will never grab the thread. Also, make sure you hold the top thread in your left hand until it grabs the thread and you pull the bobbin thread up

Needle won't grab thread from bobbin


Sometimes you have inserted the needle wrong, make sure that the needle faces the rear, if that is not it, try a new needle. Make sure that you have threaded the bobbin right, by your manual, and have at least a 6 inch tail, hold your top thread and move your handwheel towards you, not away from you and it will grab the thread.

Brother VX 1100 will not pick up bobbin thread...have cleaned and oiled machine and replaced bobbin case, could it be timing? It sure looks like it wants to work but just wont grab the bobbin thread.......


Replace the new needle, making sure the flat side is to the back of the machine.

Hold on to the top thread as the needle lowers and raises.

If it does not catch the bobbin thread, the timing may need adjusted.

You can find a graphic for adjusting the timing at sewusa.com, or take the machine in for service.

Top & bobbin thread will not sew


Most likely the needle is in backwards. Weird I know, I have no idea why but if the needle is in wrong, it either hits the bobbin and breaks or won't grab the thread at all. Good luck.

Needle won't grab bobbin thread


Check the position of the needle. Some machines have to have the needle in a certain way or they won't pick up the thread from the bobbin. Make sure the screw on the bobbin is tight but not to tight you may have to adjust it a few times to get it where it needs to be. Also make sure the bobbin is wound tight
