Check to make sure you have the right needle (different brands sometimes require different kinds) and make sure it is put in right, ie not turned around backwards

Top thread not picking up bottom thread


Try installing a brand new needle. Bent or damaged needles sometimes do not contact the bobbin thread to pick it up.

Usually threading is not an issue, but you may want to rethread the machine (be sure to always RAISE the presser foot during threading).

If it still doesn't pick up the bobbin thread, most likely the needle/hook is out of time. Take it for service.

Singer model 629 wont pick up bottom thread


If your needle isn't picking up the bottom thread, lower your needle just a bit. Only the top of the needle head should be up inside the shank.

Top thread is picked up by hook, but never picks up bottom thread. I know how to adjust needle height. How do I adjust hook timing?


try turning the bottom spool upside down. looking at the shuttle in your palm the thread needs to be on the left hand side winding / facing anti clockwise to catch in the hook see link below for

Bottom thread not picking up for 4500 series,,,tried new needle.new bobin,new thread,,pliz help


The most common reason the bottom thread won't pick up is because the needle is inserted wrong. Check that the needle is inserted with the flat side of the needle shank is facing away from you.

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!

Not picking up the bobbin thread


Make sure the needle is facing the right way. If it's in backwards it won't pick up the bobbin thread.
