Turn the bobbin around in the case so that the bobbin turns in the same direction as the thread is flowing. If you pull the thread in the case and the bobbin turns opposite the flow of the thread then you might have a problem.

Make sure the shuttle is in place, you will have to look at the manual for this. Replace the case and bobbin. Make sure you have a good needle in place.

Upper thread gets jammed in bobbin area


Try these suggestions
1. Change the needle--use a needle that's for the fabric being sewed
2. Rethread the machine--top --make sure to use every thread guide
3. try a different bobbin--make sure bobbin is inserted correctly into the bobbin case, & make sure the bobbin is turned the correct way in the bobbin case
4. make sure the thread has not come off the thread take up lever
5. Clean under the needle plate & in the bobbin area for lint or threads

I just got a new Singer Simple. I had a problem with the needle thread getting caught in the bobbin shuttle. I disassembled this area, found a random thread, and cleaned it out. I put it all back together...


Do you have the bobbin thread going the right way, according to owners manual some go clock wise some go counter clock wise when you pull the thread after bobbin inserted in bobbin case

The top thread keeps getting caught in the bobbin case on my machine.


Most likely causes:
  1. You haven't removed pieces of thread in the area around the bobbin case.
  2. The top thread is not properly installed. (Quick check - The thread is under tension when the needle is at the bottom of it's travel.)

Brand New 2263SImple. Thread keeps getting caught up in the hook in the bobbin area. Went by manual, still does it.


check your needle to see if it's damaged
some sewing machines do this when the upper thread comes off the thread take up lever
make sure thread is thread thru all the thread guides
check bobbin area for lint & loose threads

Why does my thread keep breaking and why wont the sewing machine stich?


sometimes the thread can get caught on the spool pin
or on the notch on the thread spool itself
on some machines the thread can come off the thread take up lever
it can also get caught in the top tension area
also check your needle to see if it's bent--roll on flat surface to see if it rolls correctly
there are 3 types of bad needles-bent
blunt--makes a popping sound when going thru fabric
damaged--broke tip
also check your bobbin area for lint or loose threads
check your bobbin to see if it's warped--I've come across some that were warped
check your top thread tension

I keep having the same problem. I have the 7133 sewing machine and the top thread keeps getting stuck on the bottom. It's not the bobbin thread that does it but the top thread which gets caught on the hook...


Sounds like insufficient tension on the top thread. THIS may be due to variation in the thread itself or incorrect adjustment.

ALSO I recently found out that some bobbins have a metal core that can catch the thread as it goes over. The person recommended using the plastic bobbins that have smooth angled sides.

Bobbin thread pulls and breaks


Has this problem only just started?

Sometime when this happens to me it is because the upper thread has somehow become threaded incorrectly. I take it all out and rethread - then all is ok.

Tension in the bobbin may also me an issue
