SOURCE: needle will not pick up bobbin threat

I had the exact same problem. The timing is off. You can actually fix this yourself all you need is an allen wrench. If you look at the rod the needle is inserted into and follow it up to about 2 inches below the top of the machine there should be a clamp. use the allan wrench to loosen the clamp and adjust the needle height. I used this website as a guide to getting the timing correct. http://www.sewusa.com/Sewing_Machine_Repair/Repair_Pictures/timing1.gif

now if only I could figure out why my thread keeps getting jammed under the bobbin!

SOURCE: Bobbin won't thread

Sounds like the bottom tension is to slack.
Look at the side of your bobbin case, when you thread the bobbin thread part of the route it runs is under a flat leaf spring. There is usually 2 very small scews on this leaf spring one screw holds the spring onto the casing and will be tight. The other is the tension adjuster screw, turn this screw clockwise half a turn at a time. After each half turn pull the bobbin thread until slight resistance is felt. Then try sewing if bunching/tangles still occur more tension is required, this is trial and error until the tension is corrert.
If you want a new manual try this website if your machine is not listed email them and they will try to help.

SOURCE: I purchased a Euro-Pro Shark 998A but the B looks the same

Go to this address

http://www.euro-pro.com/europro/faqdetail.aspx?modelno=998B

It does not list a 9988A, but I would imagine there is not much difference in how the threading and bobbin is done. This is a page of instructions as well as a manual to download. The manual is in Pdf format, so if you don;t hae acrobat reader, you'll need to go to www.adobe.com/acrobat and download it for free so that you can read the pdf file.



Good luck to you and Thank you for using Fix Ya!

SOURCE: Euro-Pro Shark Intelli-Sew 9110

you need a new bobbin case, only problem is finding the right one. I am currently wasting hours trying to find one for our 9110 intelli sew which has needle holes punched through it from where it jumps right out. I think lots of manufacturers know fine which parts fit the Euro-Pro but would like all of us to scrap them and go out and buy theirs!

I changed my bobbin thread and now my machine won't pickup the bobbin thread. I've changed spool of thread, bobbin and cleaned but still won't pick up the tread.Brothers model LS-2125


HI Elizabeth.
Found this on the internet.
There could be several things that could cause the machine not to pick up the bobbin thread.

  • The upper thread could be tangled.
    Remove the thread completely from the machine.
    The correct size spool cap should be used for the size of the thread spool.
    Re-thread the machine according to the directions in the manual.
One Point Advice Place a spool of thread on a spool pin.
One Point Advice Upper threading
  • Remove the bobbin and make sure the bobbin is threaded properly in the shuttle race.
    Remove any loose threads or lint in the shuttle race.
One Point Advice Installing a bobbin into a bobbin case
  • You could be holding the needle thread too tight.
    Hold the thread lightly to keep the end from going down into the shuttle.
  • The needle could be thread incorrectly.
    Thread the needle eye from the front to the back.
  • The needle could be bent or improperly inserted.
    Install a new needle with the flat side of the needle facing the back.

Thread caught in bobbin feader -Juki


Try a different thread. Did it act ok on that thread? Usually it is because the shuttle is only catching part of your thread because it is set for a different diameter of thread.. The other possibility is that you changed the size of your needle. Were you using a 16 X 231 in a size 18? The 16 X 231 is the needle length and the 18 is how big the needle is and the proper size for the thread and material you are using. E mail me through fix it and I can give you a couple more things to try.

My needle broke. I replaced it. Now when I lower the needle to grab the bobbin thread it is hitting something. I have taken the bobbin case out and put it back in but it still wont work. Any suggestions? ...


It sounds to me like you have replaced the broken needle with one that is too long (wrong size).Check your manual for the proper needle size and look through your collection, or head down to the local sewing shop and pick up a new pack of proper sized needles. Now if the needle you replaced the broken one with is the same size, you most likely didn't loosen the set screw up enough and therefore didn't slide the needle up far enough before locking it in. Double check this.

Good Luck!

I keep breaking the needle because when the presser foot is down it hits the plate on the bottom of the machine


Refer to your manual, it gives all sorts of reasons for the needle to break, wrong bobbin size, scratched plate, needle being inserted wrong. If, you do not have your manual go online to
brother-usa.com and download one for free.

Thread is balling up and not allowing the fabric to move it isn't stitching right


This can be caused by several different things. Check the threading. Un-thread the machine and follow the guidance on the manual and re-thread the machine. The bobbin, if the bobbin thread that coming out of the bobbin case in a wrong direction, could cause this. Re-set the direction. When you pull thread from the bobbin case, bobbin should roll counter clockwise. The needle, if it is not the right size needle for the fabric or the needle is slightly bent, maybe replace the needle and try with different size of needle. Once its balling up, sometimes it's left some thread in the machine under the needle plate around the feed dog, clean them up. Thread tension, different fabric may need to be adjust the thread tension, try to check this one under the manuals/instruction. When ready, check and use a scrap of fabric/remnants!

I need new needles and bobbins how do I find right ones


You can use Schmetz needles and the bobbins are Class A or Class 15. Both can be found where sewing notions are sold.

You choose the needle size according to the type of fabric you are sewing. This should be in the manual.

If you need a manual, you can download from the Brother website.

I have the singer pixie the bobbin wheel does not seem to sit properly and the needle thread is not able to pick up the bobbin thread. The bobbin wheel does not rotate when it is supposed to... how does...


you may have the wrong size bobbins. Most likely you have the wrong needles they are not long enough. Check your manual for the correct size.

No stitch happening


May sure you are using the correct size of needle and thread suitable for the fabric. make sure the thread in the bobbin and the needle is of the same weight or size. Make sure the needle is changed often - after the completion of an garment. After much use the needles become blunt and cause problems with your stitches.

Also, if the bobbin is jamming that is normally because the machine is threaded incorrectly, or the bobbin case thread is wound unevenly, or the bobbin case is not put in properly.

Try this! Just stop for a while, give yourself a few minutes to relax. When you return pull the User's Manual and slowly go over the instructions, especially the "troubleshooting" section. Also, rethread the machine and the bobbin case by carefully following the steps in your User Manual. I have found that it helps me tremendously when I have problems. Hope it help. Happy Sewing

I have similar problems
