Needle picks up bobbin thread but then thread gets stuck

The model number I have is 3205FA. I am new to the use of sewing machines but I have installed the bobbin exactly as described in the manual. I can get the needle to pick up the bobbin thread, but then the thread won't come out any further and seems to get stuck. When I look underneath, the thread seems to be underneath the bobbin case and wrapped around the underside of the case...is that normal? And what could I be doing wrong?

Make sure you have the bobbin case clicked in properly, thgis will cause the thread to tangle round the bobbin case, take the bobbin case out and with a bobbin in the machine pull the thread through nice and even, it should pull through with some slight tension, as you are pulling the thread through look at the actual bobbin to make sure it is not buckled.

I've had similar problems (as well as other problem with the thread breaking all the time and the "shuttle race" thing that holds the bobbin falling out. One very important thing that isn't mentioned in the manual but that the salesman stressed is that you have to use only "Schmetz" brand needles. They are a tiny bit longer, but that makes all the difference in the world if your stitches are skipping. I forgot and used Singer needles and had horrible results.

I had exactly the same problem on the exact same model 3205FA. I'm not an expert, but have a little experience on solving my wife and daughter's sewing machine mechanical problems. I would suggest the following: A. Page 6 of the owners manual see item # 1...to be precise it is 1 1/2 times around. B. Page 7 at the bottom, Make sure the bobbin tension spring is set so that there is tension. When holding the tread the bobbin shouldn't unroll. If jiggled about 2-3 inches the bobbin should release about 1/3 of that distance. C. Page 8 at the bottom, ill. # 2. There are two flange holders and screws that hold the bobbin case in position located at about 5 and 7 o'clock. Make sure both screws are tight. This is important. D. Make sure the thread is treaded through the upper tension adjustment properly. See page 9 # Illustration C. Terrible illustration. Keep the dial generally in the green range. E. Put in a new needle, the needles that come with the machine are just short of terrible. Wouldn't hurt to buy good top quality needles for the machine.

Top thread too tight?


make sure tat the thread is between the tension plates and not behind and jamming on the bolt
proper tension is a slight resistance when you pull the thread to thread the needle

I need help with a white sewing machine model 765 I can't get it to sew it doesn't pick up the bobbin thread


First thing to try is a brand new needle. A bent/damaged needle may not be able to pick up the bobbin thread.

Otherwise, it is possible it has a timing issue, ie the needle is arriving at the bobbin at the wrong time in order to connect with the bobbin thread. Search the internet web sites and videos. There is a lot of information on how to fix sewing machine timing. Or take it for service.

Riccar stretch 500fa Needle won't pick up thread from bobbin


Check to make sure you are using the correct needle for the machine, that it is a brand-new needle, and that is installed facing the correct direction. Other than that, it's quite possible the machine was knocked out of time and needs service.

HINT: install a brand new needle. Remove the top thread from the machine. ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and then rethread the top thread. The upper tension should start out set at the midway point. Use only fresh, good quality thread--AVOID old or bargain bin threads.

If the machine is threaded correctly top and bottom, but is still not catching the bobbin thread, then it's possible the machine is out of time. Search for sewing machine timing or take it for service.

Since it is an older mechanical machine, it is recommended to clean and oil the machine frequently. Oil Before using it if it has been in storage. If the machine is sticky, motor drags, etc., here's a good reference for getting it back in shape:

Needle thread wrapping around bobbin case.


Hello Crystal, I also have had problems in the past with drop-in bobbins . I had to experiment with different model bobbins . The cause I found was due to the bobbin was not tall enough in the drop-in bobbin case. When sewing , the bobbin would rock in the bobbin case and the top thread would get caught on the bobbin instead of going over the top of the bobbin, causing the rats nest that you described. I would recommend finding a taller bobbin to fit in the bobbin case. There are about five different bobbins that will fit in there, but only one that will work properly. Knowing the exact model number of your machine would be a great help to finding the correct bobbin.

Hi - I'm in the market for a sewing machine. I'm trying to decide between a Singer 4832C or a Necchi 3205FA. Which would u recommend? Thx.


I used to sell necchi's, I have used necchi's for over 30 years for sewing & quiting. I own a necchi model 4595 mechanical sewing machine, & a omega by necchi, model 6150, electronic, my husband does his quiting on it.I have made clothes & quits on both machines
I have never sold or tried a necchi 3205fa or a singer 4832c
all I ever had were old singers, which I have gotten rid of all them
make sure it has a operation manual with it.
make sure you can take it back if something is wrong with it.
happy sewing
