    I have an older machine, a TT600, but I'm sure it's basically like the TT700. I'm using it for the first time and CANNOT get the main thread to pull up the bobbin thread. I've gone by the enclosed instructions to the letter and even checked with instructions on an online site, but no luck. I'm hoping I'm just doing something wrong since the machine is way too old to return. I've even taken it apart...the main thread is caught by the hook, but that's as far as it loop is created from the bobbin to pull through. I have used regular sewing machines in the past and never encountered this problem. Thanks.

Hi I did get my machine fixed. I called the repairman that was a friend and he told me what to look for. I did. He said to remove the bobbin and the cariage. Take a light and look all in the inside around every moving part for any thread tangled. You will really have to look good becauce the thread changes colors with oils in the machine. It is difficult to get it out. I had to use a very long apolstry needle I had to reach the thread wrapped around the gears. THen use the tweezers and keep on until I got it all out. You have to be very careful as the gears are plastic. Mine is going now. THanks all.

I have multiple threads coming out the bobin space and making a mess of the back side.

called bird nesting and is a result of too loose a needle thread tension
if you use an automatic tensioner or using the numbers
and you still have a problem, the correct tension is a resistance to you pulling the thread prior to threading the needle

Jenomi 392 sweing machine bobin thread is not coming up

Be sure to install a brand new needle. Needles should be changed frequently as bent/damaged,worn needles will cause problems with the stitching quality.

Remove all the thread.

ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning. Verify the thread path is correct.

Set the upper tension to the midway point between high & low number.

Bring the bobbin thread up before beginning to stitch.

If it still will not bring up the thread, then it most likely has a timing issue. Take it for service.

My Bernette 715 isn't picking up the bobbin thread and is getting jammed. Any ideas what's wrong?

First thing to always try: Install a brand new needle. A dull, worn, or bent needle will cause great frustration. It is also the least expensive resolution to most problems.

Second: Remove all the threads. RAISE the presser foot. Rethread from the beginning making sure it is threaded correctly.
Pull up the bobbin thread before beginning to stitch and hold the thread tails in the left hand while slowly taking the first few stitches:

If still having issues with not pulling up the bobbin thread, the needle/hook may be out of time.

Model 7043 Imperial. how do I pick up bobbin tread?

Install a brand new needle--make sure the flat side is facing the correct direction. Remove all the thread. RAISE the presser foot and rethread everything from the beginning. Make sure the bobbin is threaded properly.

Hand rotate the handwheel one full turn and see if it picks up the bobbin thread. If not, make sure you are using the correct needles.

Open the bobbin door and while watching the needle action, watch when the needle comes down, is it looping to catch the bobbin thread? If it's not, then it could be a needle/hook timing problem.

My machine isnt threading the bobin underneath.

Do you have the right needle in your machine? There are some Sergers that take shorter needles and I have has some customers put those short needles on thier sewing machine. If the needle is too short it cannot pick up the bottom thread.

If that isn't the problem I would also try to rethread the machine and the bobbin. It sounds very simple, but sometimes you can miss a step

If none of the above don't work, you may have a timing issue. Have you run over a pin? or had the needle come down on a presser foot? Sometimes these sudden stops can knock the machine out of time.

It can't pick up the thread out to sew

Make sure that you have a tail on the bobin thread when in place and a tail on the needle thread, hold the needle thread and turn the wheel to bring up the bobin thread before trying to sew

How can you fix the under threading of a sewing

Check the ovious things first make sure you needle isnt broken... then make sure there isnt any thread twisted inside your bobin housing. make sure bobin is inserted correctly if those things dont help it could be an issue of timing in your machine... I work as an embroidery operator in a factory setting and those things usually help..

Needle not picking up bobbin thread. Seems threaded properly. lsd-1 (classic) Problem occurred after needle hit something perhaps the the cap spring which had some marks on it but no real damage. ...

change the needle, if bent it may skip, use top thread while holding to pull thru, turn bobin around to turn in oposite dirrection, bobins usually turn in 1 correct dirrection

I have model 8280 and the bobbin thread keeps bunching up on the bottom. I have tried to rethread it but it keeps happening.

i think your putting in your bobin backwards,
to check put your bobin in and hold bobin , and bobin case by thread if it unrolls its backwards,
hope this helps!!
