Hi,
did you clean the bottom bobbin area thoroughly? Remove the cover plate and bobbin reel, look for debris. Any left over cotton will cause problems, after you clean it spray some wd-40 on all moving parts.
Thanks
Adam
please leave me some feedback

    Hmmm, so I presume you are trying the takeup by slowly hand turning the rotor (does this model have such)?
    Are you trying it with the foot cover plate removed so you can see what is happening?
    Is the needle in the right way, they can actually go in backwards.

  • FastSignsAUS Feb 18, 2011

    Can you please explain when this problem occurred, ie have you used the machine recently (successfully)? Did you buy this new etc etc.

  • FastSignsAUS Feb 18, 2011

    First check your "fill bobbin" lever on top: make sure it's open all the way. (Try opening and closing it several times.) If this is even slightly in the closed position, the feed nor the needle assy will not move.

    Next, make sure your foot pedal is not depressed...tap it several times up-down. If the pedal is even slightly depressed, the feed nor the needle assy will not move.

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 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.

I use a BLR3.The upper thread wound around the bobbin,bunched up and jammed.I cleaned the bobbin case,put in new bobbin,now the upper thread is not picking up the bobbin thread.tension at 2.5.


Try a brand new needle in case the needle is bent. Might rethread everything from the beginning. If you've verified it is all threaded correctly and it's still not working, then it could mean the machine has been knocked out of time (needle & hook are out of sync). You can search for sewing machine timing or take it for service.

My Ruby Viking will not pick up bobbin thread


Install a brand new needle. A bent/damaged needle sometimes will not pick up the bobbin thread.

Verify the machine is threaded correctly.

If it still will not pick up the bobbin thread, most likely it is a needle/hook timing issues. There are many web sites and videos online explaining sewing machine timing. Or take it for service.

I have a brother ls-2150 I can't pick cotton up from the bobbin


Try installing a brand new needle (verify it is installed correctly). If it still does not pick up the bobbin thread, the needle/hook may be out of time, requiring service.

Needle will not pick up bobbin thread (Bernina 830) despite tightening handwheel therefore no stitching. Have cleaned bobbin mechanism and have checked and rechecked bobbin threading. Have tightened


Make sure needle is inserted with the scarf(small indentation above needle eye) to the back and fully inserted. Otherwise it could be out of time which would require a technician.

try cleaning under the needle plate & in bobbin area for loose threads or lint
try using a new needle--make sure the needle is inserted correctly in the needle holder
try rethreading the machine top & bobbin
if you try all these suggestions & the machine still won't pick up the bobbin thread then it's possible that the machine is out of time & would have to be retimed at a sewing machine shop

Not picking up the Bobbin thread


I cleaned the machine good with canned air, oiled it. I took out the bobbin case and cleaned it good also. I then noticed the tension screw on the bobbin case was loose, tightened it and the problem was fixed.
