Doesn't draw up the bobbin thread

I was sewing, fabric got stuck in the feeder dogs, I pulled it out...since then, the bobbin thread doesn't move at all. Imagine starting a new bobbin with the thread over the top, then trying to use the needle to pull the bobbin thread up (or hitting the needle up button twice, as the manual suggests), but the bobbin thread stays put. Is there something minor I'm missing, or do I need to take this in? We took the top off and all looks normal, but obviously we're missing something.

    This just started for me, can't seem to fix it. Machine worked like a dream before. Now the bottom thread gets all bunched up and never comes up.

    I have the same problem, the thread got all caught up and pulled my fabric into the feeder thing and I managed to pull it out and I've cleaned the dust out and can see that the bobbin thing isn't moving like it should.

    it worked previously but after I took it out to make more bobbin it wouldn't re thread. I have manually threaded it from the front to back and back to front but the thread comes out as soon as I begin sewing

Sounds like a timing problem. Can only be fixed by a technician

My Elna 6000: the needle does not want to move forward or backwards


The needle never moves forward/back on its own for most sewing machines. The needle bar goes up and down. The fabric moves due to the action of the feed dogs. First remove the fabric from under the presser foot. Check for tangled thread wrapped around the feed dogs or fabric/thread going down into the bobbin area in a tangle. Next check if the feed dogs are up. (When the feed dogs are down or covered (on some machines), the machine is in darning mode. The fabric will only move if you move it yourself.) With the fabric out of the way, rotate the hand wheel and check if the feed dogs are moving. Open up the bobbin compartment and clean out any lint, thread or other debris that may be tangling the mechanism. Take off the throat plate and check the feed dogs. A damaged throat plate can stop the feed dogs from moving properly. You may need to replace the throat plate.

For some machines, you may need to make sure that the unit is not in bobbin wind mode. This is usually obvious since the needle bar won't move either.

I hope this helps.

Have a Singer 11910000A and the bobber thread bunches up and makes a mess in the feet when sewing


Is it really the bobbin thread that is globbing? Check closely. Usually it is the upper thread accumulating under the fabric.

If it is in fact the bobbin thread, then the bobbin case is not threaded correctly, the bobbin case tension needs adjustment, or it is broken and needs replacement. There are web sites and YouTube videos that show how to adjust the bobbin case tension.

QUICK FIXES: Remove all the thread from the machine. Clean the area around the feed dogs and bobbin area. Oil as instructed in the owner's manual using ONLY fresh, good quality sewing machine oil (only 1-2 drops each spot). Install a brand new needle insuring it is installed correctly. Avoid using fuzzy, old, or bargain bin thread. Rethread: Be sure you raise the presser foot BEFORE threading the upper thread so it will seat properly in the tension disk--and check to make sure you are threading the machine correctly. Check that the upper tension is set properly (the factory standard is usually the halfway point between the high & low number on the selection). Test on a scrap of the fabric you wish to sew. Adjust the upper tension--either tighten to pull the upper thread toward the top of the fabric, or loosen to pull more upper thread down.

Here are some web sites that may help.

How to fix bobbin thread on computered memorycraft 9000 sewing machine ?


1)Check that your bobbin does not have a nick in it where the thread can catch and won't feed smoothly.2) make sure the upper and bobbin threads are the same.3) pull out the bobbin case and chect to see if there is a clump of lint.4) make sure the feed dogs are moving the fabric through smoothly,some fabrics can get caught on the dogs and make the bottom thread get loopy.5) check your needle,if it's bent or has a bad tip,it can mess up the stitch.

Fabric not moving


You probably lowered the feed dogs; the 'button' is oblong shaped, and to the right of the bobbin case. I have had several Pfaff machines, and still sew with one, so email me if you still have a question. Sheila [email protected]

Fabric not advancing


run you finger over the feed dogs under the foot - can us feel them above the surround? if not, you have placed your machine into free style sewing, and the feed dog does not advance the fabric in this mode. Look in your manual and see where the feed dog gets lowered/raised - raising it again should solve your problem.

I have a brother sewing machine. i threaded and have rethreaded and threaded the bobbin over and over. it will not move the fabric and botton thread will not catch onto top. what am i doing wrong?


Brother machines are usually a very good brand. Sounds like you are having a small problem with threading..........I know how frustrating that can be!
Start over....totally from the beginning. First, clean the machine of all dust, I use a small paint brush to remove lint from the bobbin case area. Oil the machine. Remove all the thread from the machine, use a different bobbin and rewind it with new thread. Make sure the bobbin thread is the same as the thread you use to thread the upper needle with. Use a new needle that is the appropriate size for your sewing project. Check to make sure the feed dog is moving when you turn the wheel that raises the needle up and down. New needle, new bobbin, new thread......before you place the fabric under the presser foot (and with the presser foot raised), turn the wheel one complete rotation to allow the upper needle thread to catch the bobbin thread. Gently pull both threads out towards the back of the machine, making sure the bobbin thread is now coming up through the little hole in the feed dog plate. Place fabric under the presser foot, lower presser foot and as you slowly start to sew, make sure you have the bobbin thread pulled with slight tension out from the back of the needle. This will take up any slack in the bobbin thread and keep it from making a knotted mess. Good luck, I hope this helps.
