It would appear to be threaded wrongly. Pull all the threads out, check the visible upper tension discs for broken threads then re-thread top and bobbin, making sure the pressure foot is up when you re-thread. Bobbins should normally turn clockwise when the tail of the thread is pulled. Make sure thread has gone under the tension spring.
Oddly enough, a blunt needle can occasionally cause this problem so if all else fails try changing the needle. Good luck

Can not catching the bobbin tread at the bottom


The bobbin may be in backwards
the needle is not the correct one for the machine
the needle isn't correctly seated in the needle clamp
the machine is a little bit out of time.
Remember to hang on to the needle thread when you're trying to pick up the bobbin thread
Turn the handwheel in the direction that would advance the fabric from the front to the back of the machine
make sure the bobbin-winding spindle has been pushed back to the left for sewing
make sure your needle is inserted correctly as far as it will go with the flat side facing back
and that the upper tension disks of your machine are threaded correctly.
Make sure the presser foot is up when seating the thread through the upper tension.
Turn the hand wheel (TOWARDS YOU ONLY) never turn the hand wheel away from you and hold the needle thread lightly. .
pull the loop up and then pull both threads (top and bobbin) under the foot and toward the back of the machine.
Also could be a timing problem

Royal Series, Necchi, Model # 80331763 bobbin does not take up thread properly. No manual unsure if i am threading it correctly.


You can get Necchi instruction manual from Necchi website: http://www.sewusa.com/Sewing_Machine_Manuals/Necchi_Sewing_Machines.htm". Makesure the needle is in the machine correctly- all the way up into the needlebar, make sure that it is threaded correctly, etc. If this all checks out ok,take the bobbin case out of the machine. There are two ears on either side ofthe bobbin case- turn the left one to the left and the right one to the right.Remove the silver ring, and inspect the piece of metal that the ring came off of(looks like a circle with the top cut off). You have to locate the hook whichis the piece that looks like a half moon inside the big round metal piece.Locate the tip of it, turn the hand wheel toward you until the needle is in thelowest position, at this point the tip of the hook should be flush with top ofthe left side of the cut off circle. Checkwhether underneath thread is looping on the fabric. If so then you've mis-threadedthe top, probably haven't raised the presser foot when threading so you can getthe upper thread into the tension. You need to thread the upper part with thepresser foot up. (You can put it down to thread the needle.)

Not picking up thread can be several issues, like bobbin is miswound, bobbincase isn't snapped in properly, you're using the wrong type bobbin, machine isout of time, needle is bent or burred, machine is dirty and in need of dustbunny eviction and a little oil but most of the time the issue is once againmisthreading: sewing machine needles have a front and a back and they have tobe placed in the needle holder correctly. In that case your manual is needed, take all the thread offthe machine (yes, spool off the spool pin, bobbin out of the bobbin case), pullthe needle plate and clean your machine thoroughly, using brush and vacuum (notcompressed air) and oiling per the instruction manual. Put it all backtogether, putting in a 80/12 needle, correctly oriented. Hang on to theneedle thread when you fetch up the bobbin thread.

Each and every seam you start is going to be done this way:
1) Pull the tail of the top and bobbin thread behind the presser foot
2) Put the work under the needle and use the hand wheel to lower the needleinto the work
3) Drop the presser foot
4) Holding the thread tails behind the foot, take a couple of stitches.
5) Drop the thread tails and sew normally. Hope this will help you. Good Luck.

I have an expression 2038 and the stitching has suddenly changed so that the top stitching is quite good but the underneath is loose. I have the tension on 4 and have a new straight needle and good quality...


If the bobbin thread is too loose, remove the bobbin spool AND carrier.Thread the thread through the tension clip on the holder in the normal way. Hold the thread and lift it. If the bobbin slides down, tighten the small screw 1/8 turn clockwise, until you can lift it with little or no sliding.

It's been years since I sewed anything and now I can't seem to get the bobbin to thread properly, I've tried several ways and none work. Help please

This is a picture of typical bobbin threading. The thread should go around the bobbin and come out through the slot in the same direction...see B1. The thread goes from inside the bobbin through the slot to the outside of the bobbin case. The screw adjusts the tension on the thread as it comes out.

If you mean how to thread it to wind the bobbin we'd need to know what model and brand of machine you have as they're a bit different in how that's done. In older machines it was often on top, sometimes towards the back of the machine towards the wheel. The thread went through several guides and it wound the bobbin only when you pushed the spool post that held the bobbin up against the wheel that caused it to turn, after releasing the hand wheel on the back so the needle wouldn't go up and down as it wound the bobbin.

I just got a new machine (new to me anyway) new home hf106 model. i need to thread the bobbin on the new thead i am using and am not sure where to put the empty bobbin and how to thread it. help!


Janome New Home?

Unfortunately, Janome doesn't put the manuals for older machines on their website. Your best bet is to contact your local Janome sewing machine dealer and ask for a "copy" of the manual from them. A photo copy should be sufficient for your purposes. Otherwise I understand you'll have to buy a manual and wait to have it shipped.

But carefully look at your New Home. On the top toward the right there should be a fitting that looks like the bottom half of a spool. and next to it is a thing that almost looks like a mushroom.

Put the spool of thread on the spool holder, run the tread to and around the tension discs on top then thread the end through the hole in your empty bobbin. Place the bobbin on the thing that looks like a half a spool and push the whole thing to the right toward the "mushroom."

Press start, or hit the foot feed. Wind slowly for best results.

When full, stop and move the bobbin winder back to the Left (sewing mode)

Now... hold your bobbin between your right thumb and fore finger... pull the thread a few inches... your thread should be coming off the LEFT side of the spool, if not flip it over and try again. Open the bobbin area, drop it in with the thread coming off the left to the bobbin.

hold bobbin still with right index finger and with left hand slip the tread between the bobbin race's tension spring then if your model has a channel for the tread... follow it... otherwise pull straight back, replace the bobbin cover on the machine.....

Thread top thread then use the hand wheel to take up the bobbin thread.

(Of course this all assumes your New Home is similar to my janome or brother.) Have fun!

Be sure to get some good needles.... ;)

I have a model 605d ,the machine work fine except it will not sew! i look over the machine it look ok ! i am found out that top spool thread and the bottom bobbin thread are not coming together to sew!


You have to do the first stitch using the handwheel so that the top thread catches under the bobbin thread and then you can pull the top thread which will bring up the bobbin thread. put both threads to back of machine. Now you can sew.

Every time you re-thread you need to do this.

My Kenmore sewing machine timing has gotten off. I am sewing a big upholstery project and it starting bunching thread from the bobbin. The thread is so heavy that I had to put some pressure just to get...


Hello

Disassemble your bobbin case which is realy quite easy, clean thoroughly with a brush and air, paying particular attention to any rust that may have formed, and any thread that may have weazeled it's way into small but very incremental areas of your case.

Make sure your needle is not in backwards.The rounded side should be on the outside

. If threading is correct and your tension is properly adjusted , then check the hook for scratches. If you have ever hit the hook with a needle, it will be scarred and will catch the thread every time the upper thread passes around the bobbin case. the hook is the sharp point on the shuttle that holds the bobbin case. If it is scratched, polish it smooth with VERY fine sand paper

Make sure that your thread arm that rises and falls, constantly having tension running through it and that it is in fact staying in place.

Alternate between the metal and plastic bobbins - sometimes the plastic bobbins tend to chip

Sewing machine won't pick up bobbin thread


open the bobbin case and see if the hook is turning, if it is it is just a timing problem with the hook and needle, if it isn't tuning you may have a broken gear or timing belt.....It eill need to be looked at or adj by someone who repairs them....Daniel
