Providing you have checked to make sure the needle is in correctly, if the machine will not pick up the thread then the machine will need retiming.

Hi,

first of all make sure you have the needle in the correct way round, flat side facing back, try a new needle, it only has to be slightly bent or blunt and it will miss stitches, the tension unit is the small piece near the takeup lever and it only has a small spring but that has nothing to do with the threading picking up, if the machine misses stitches after trying the above then you will need to retime the machine either bu a shop or by yourself, if you are sewing on fabric that collects static such as knitted fabric make sure you use an anti-static needle otherwise it will miss stitches.

Goodluck..

Before all else. Turn off machine!
(1) break screws on the hook loose.
(2) tighten one back up very skightly, one you can reach when the needle bar is at its lowest position.
(3) lower needle bar to its lowest position.
(4) loosen the screw just tightened.
(5) position the tip of the hook behind the needle hole. the tip should be as close to the needle hole as possible without actually touching the needle
(6) tighten screws
(7) slowly hand turn the machine (depress the foot pedal to disengage clutch brake on motor) several revolutions to make sure the needle doesn't hit anything on the hook.
(8) if it passes this test, try on a scrap of fabric

SOURCE: Not catching stitches / bobbin correctly

Your timing has been messed up by breaking the needle.  When the needle hit the bobbin race, it shoved the needle bar up and now the needle is not in the correct position to catch the bobbin thread when the race rotates.  The needle has a little dip in the back, called the scarf.  When you take the neddle plate off and watch it move, you should see the little hook pass through the scarf.  That's how it makes the locking stitch and picks up the bobbin thread.  Unfortunately, you will need to take this in to a dealer or service place to have them adjust the needle bar height.  It's not a complicated task so see if they can check it while you wait.  It may be more difficult to fix, like retiming the machine.  But it doesn't sound like you've done any major damage to the mechanism.

I have a futura ce 150 and my bobbin thread won't catch


Are you able to bring the bobbin thread to the top of the needle plate, but it's skipping stitches, or you can't "catch" the bobbin thread to start sewing at all.

If you can't "catch" it at all, your machine's hook is no longer synchronizing, and you will need to have it retimed by a technician. The good news is, timing is not something that is unique per manufacturer, which means ANY sewing machine technician should be able to do it.

Bobbin thread


Impossible to explain how to time a sewing machine you need to be shown. Basically it entails setting the needle depth then making sure the hook passes just above the eye of the needle at a set height as the needle is rising, this ensures the hook catches the upper thread. Also the hook needs to be set a specific distance from the needle. Sounds easy but sometimes it can be very difficult and fiddly job.

Drawing up bobbin thread


If the thread is not clearing the hook te chances are the machine will need retiming, have you checked for any sharp edges or burrs ont the hook that might be holding it back, if the machine is sewing perfectly once you getit going and is not missing stitches the timing will be okay.
