I believe you have a broken gear. These are difficult to repair on your own.

Providing you have put a new needle in the correct way round if the machine is not picking up the thread it may need retiming, email me and I will attach full instructions if that is the problem.

SOURCE: bobbin thread won't catch with needle thread

check that the needle is in the right way round i.e. with cut out on the needle facing into the machine. if this is fine then check that as the needle comes back up from the lowest point that it goes to, that the point on the bobbin case passes just above the hole in the needle, i.e. in the middle of the cut out.(if not it needs re timing) if threaded a small loop should appear at this point for the bottom bobbin to catch if not slacken the top thread and try again.

Im supper confused i just got a singer sewing machine model 5830c and im trying to figure out what is wrong. the bobbin wont thread and nothing is trying to catch it what do i do?

If the bobbin on your Singer sewing machine is not threading correctly, there may be a problem with the bobbin case or the bobbin tension. Here are a few steps you can try to troubleshoot and fix the issue:

Check the bobbin case: Make sure the bobbin case is correctly installed in the machine and seated properly. If it is not, the bobbin may not be able to thread correctly. Refer to the manual or a diagram of your machine to determine the correct position for the bobbin case.

Check the bobbin tension: The bobbin tension should be just right - not too loose or too tight. If the tension is incorrect, the bobbin may not thread correctly. To check the tension, remove the bobbin case and hold it with the opening facing up. Then, gently pull on the thread. It should offer some resistance, but the thread should still smoothly glide through the tension spring. If the tension is not correct, you can adjust it by turning the tension dial on the bobbin case.

Check the machine settings: Make sure the machine is set to the correct stitch type and thread tension. Refer to the manual or a diagram of your machine to determine the correct settings.

Clean and oil the machine: If the machine has not been used in a while or has not been properly maintained, it may need to be cleaned and oiled. Dirt and debris can accumulate in the machine and affect its performance. Use a brush to clean out any visible debris, and oil any points where the manual recommends.

My bobbin thread breaks too much. How do I fix it.

Be sure you are using the correct bobbin for your machine. Even though it appears to fit the bobbin case, if it is the wrong bobbin, it could cause major headaches.

Try a different bobbin. Try different thread.

Also check that the bobbin thread is wound smoothly and turning the correct direction in the bobbin case. Make sure the thread is threaded through the bobbin tension properly.

AVOID old and inexpensive, bargain bin thread!

There could be a nick or burr somewhere that is catching the bobbin thread and breaking it.

Try loosening the bobbin tension a bit. It could be too tight, especially if the bobbin thread is pulling the upper thread down to the underside of the fabric.

There could also be something wrong with the bobbin case itself that may be resolved by trying a new bobbin case (or borrow one from a friend, etc.)

My thread is not catching with bobbin thread

Be sure to use a brand new needle. A bent/damaged needle may not connect with the bobbin thread.

If it still does not pick up the bobbin thread, your machine most likely has a timing issue (the needle arrives at the wrong time to intercept the bobbin thread). There are multiple web sites and videos that discuss sewing machine timing. Or take it for service.


Why needle is not catching the bobbin thread

Check to be sure the needle is installed correctly. If the flat side is facing the wrong way, your machine will not stitch.


Bobbin is not catching thread

NOTE TO THE QUESTION. Bobbins do not catch thread. A hook underneath when you use the wheel to advance the machine will come and catch the under thread OR BOBBIN THREAD and pull it up.
Something common and I do it, wrong bobbin in the bottom thread. I have 2 sewing machines so put thread on both plastic and metal bobbins and then just grab the wrong machine bobbin.
If this is not the issue, take the machine apart and clean it well. Note the spots that you are to oil SPARINGLY.

Why won't my needle catch the bobbin thread

this happens to me when i have put my bobbin in upside down (i know sounds nuts) but yes it is possible for it to be in wrong, take it out and turn it over make sure you feed the thread as shown on your machine ...pull the needle thread tight and turn it will catch if its the right way up and threaded right...good luck

The bobbin on my Brother Xr 34 sewing machine won't catch Please help

try changing the needle
try a different bobbin
try turning the bobbin the opposite direction
make sure the bobbin is inserted correctly into the bobbin case
there could be something wrong with the hook and hook race
and the machine may need some adjustment

My bobbin won't catch on the bobbin winder, the metal post spins but the plastic singer style bobbin won't spin with it. What's wrong?

The bobbin may be stripped, or the bobbin winder might be stripped; try it with a different bobbin, to rule out the bobbin being the issue; if that doesn't work, look closely at the bobbin winder to see if it has been damaged. You may be able to adjust it's shape with a pliers
