Put the thread through one of the holes. Then put the bobbin on the spindle. Pull about 3 or 4 inches out of the hole and hold on to it. Start winding the bobbin. After about ten turns, or when the winding thread is secure, you can stop the machine and cut off this 3 or 4 inch tail. To insure that the thread winds up and down the bobbin and not off the top or bottom, there is probably a metal bobbin tension disk that the thread must pass around before it goes to the bobbin. It is probably on the left of the machine and may or may not be part of a thread guide. The thread must pass around this disk on its way to the bobbin in order to put tension on the thread so it will wind properly. If you can't find the disk, which is a small metal button or screw with some type of somewhat moveable spring cap, you can just get the thread to pass through your thumb and forefinger. Hold your hand 6 or 8 inches to the left of the bobbin and pass the thread between your thumb and forefinger so that it makes the thread go in a direct straight line to the bobbin. Pinch the thread only enough to keep it taught but not tight and let it flow through your finger to the bobbin. The thread should go up and down evenly on the bobbin. If not, move your hand up or down to position it so the thread will wind up and down smoothly. It will not be necessary to move your hand once you find the correct position needed for winding.

The top of the machine is not threaded correctly. First raise the presserfot then rethread the machine. Bottom looping is usually caused by a lack of top tension. There could allso be a bur on the hook.

SOURCE: brother xr-65 bobbin problem

I had the same problem and I found out that it was because I was not using Brother bobbins...I was buying the replacements that looked the same from Joanns and I guess the ones they require are a little bit taller...once I bought the right replacements...everything has been fine. Hope that helps. The model number for the correct bobbins is SA156...get froma local dealer or online retailer.

SOURCE: can't draw up the bobbin thread

Make sure you have enough of a "tail" from teh bobbin... Probably 4 inches or so before starting. If that doesn't work, check upper tension and needle is properly seated.

The needle drags the thread down and then starts back up causing a loop at the eye which a shuttle goes through and acrries the upper thread over the bobbin. The upper thread then drags the bobbing thread up.

SOURCE: Brother VX-1120- The needle is not picking up bobbin thread.

I had the same problem with my brother vx-1120 sewing machine. I set the needle to lowest position by using the hand crank. Then I loosened the knerled set screw that holds needle in place. Then I moved needle shaft till the eye of needle is just lower than the hook on the shuttle loop maker. It made my mechine work. There are instuctions for ajusting timing on machine but I think these mechines are built to not fix and throw out. Just because there where no ajustment marks at all on machine, any machanical machine will needed to be ajusted sometime.

I have a Brother JX2517. I went to mend something...and at first the knob was turning the parts inside correctly. However, after refilling a bobbin, the knob didn't connect, the hook wouldn't move.


Make sure the bobbin thread is comming off the bobbin in the correct direction. Usually clock wise. If it is not, the machine will not stitch, or will tangle the thread.

I have a brother vx1100 sewing machine and I forgot how to combine the bobin thread with the upper thread to start sewing please help


ono secret
just pull the bobbin thread down the slot in the bobbin holder and under the spring plate
leave about 6 " thread loose and put the bobbin and holder back in the machine
use you hand and turn the machine over a few times and the needle thread will pull the bobbin thread up
or use a bit of scrap material and start a short sew

Is the thread caught in gear in top of machine causing it to bind. If you refilled bobbin did the gear switch back completely or you have lost an o ring in bobbin rewind.

Thread bunching and bobbin winder quit


This sounds a lot like you've forgotten to lower the presser foot. (this leaves the tension discs open and causes serious issues below the material.) Double check that and if still having issues post again.

Bobbin thread won't engage.


The bobbin case is not in the shuttle.

Raise the needle to it's highest position.

Lift the lever on the back of the bobbin case and hold it open as you insert the case into the shuttle; arm on the case pointing up. You may have to turn a bit to the left or right - it will click when in place.

Brother CS-8150 Problems with bobbin thread


Double check to see if the bobbin is in upside down and the thread is feeding from the bobbin spool in the wrong direction.

I did this once after several years using the same machine, some days are just not as easy as they should be!

have you tried other thread and a different bobbin?  The tension screw on the bobin case could be too tight.

take out the bobbin (thread holder) beneath the sewing area. Clean that cavity with a brush or cotton/soft cloth. Refill the bobbin with new thread and put it back in the cavity. I hope it will solve your problem.
