SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: Thread and bobbin both threaded

Check that the thread is tight around the bobbin. Make sure that the bobbin is in the right way around - the bobbin thread should double back on itself coming out of the bobbin holder. The bobbin tension adjustment is the small screw in the plate on the bobbin case that the thread passes under as it comes off the bobbin and goes out.

SOURCE: Just got white E-Z sew

The thread should be going counter clockwise. You probably have to pullabout 3 inches of thread out of the bobbin to be safe, and pull that up overthe plate and drape to the left. Then pull about 5or 6 inches of thread outfrom the needle. Try holding that thread somewhat taught and lower your needleup and down with your side dial and see if it finally loops the bobbin thread. Hope this works.

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 inherited a White Sewing machine, model 4050. I have an older model White, so am familiar with the basics. Followed directions carefully regarding top threading and loading the bobbin - but I...


indicates that the needle /hook timing is off
check this by putting the needle in the fully down position and then as you start to get it back up the hook should be at or just near the eye of the needle

Mmy bobbin case fell out of the casing spot and then the bobbin fell out. I don\t have a manual, used to know how to fix the problem simply but have forgotten. thanks for your help.


Hi. Find the end of the thread and pull it out, off of the bobbin a couple of inches. Hold the bobbin with the thread coming off of the top so that if you rotated the bobbin counter clockwise it would wind the thread onto the bobbin. Now take the bobbin case in your left hand with the stem in the center of the case facing toward you. Stick the bobbin into the bobbin case and, taking the end of the thread, pull it to your left while pushing back on it somewhat until the thread enters the slot in the bobbin case. Pull the thread so that it slips under the thread tension spring, pull a little more out, then reinsert the bobbin case until it is seated all the way in the hook. It will probably have a catch that snaps in place.

Cant thread cotton correctly resulting in top cotton bunching around bobbin on my elna carina su sewing machine


Hi. Correct threading of your machine is absolutely essential for flawless function. I would suggest starting fresh, removing upper thread completely. For correct function, every threading point needs to be passed in the correct order. Every hole or thread guide should have thread going through it. Use a tweezer and pass the end of the cotton through each point, paying special attention to the tension discs and take-up lever. Double check to make sure you have light but firm tension on the thread (having lowered the presser foot, because tension is released when foot is up). Rotate the hand wheel slowly in it's normal direction to check function before attempting to sew.

My bobbin thread forms massive amounts of loops and a knoty mess. I have tried adjusting the tension and changing the needle. What can I do?elna 3005


Hi you just have to open up the bobbin part with a screw driver, take out the bobbin and bobbin case, use a small lint brush clean the whole area.insert the bobbin back once you have finish. There must be a lot of lint in the area it can cause the problem you have.
