Singer Curvy 8770 - Won't pick up bobbin thread

onedog3catsNovember 19, 2008

Hi..I am new here. I just bought a Singer Curvy 8770...haven't sewn a stitch since high school (20 years ago). All was going well with the machine, then my bobbin ran out of thread. I refilled the bobbin and now the needle won't pick up the thread!! I did notice right before that the thread bunched up quite a bit underneath the fabric. I've removed/replaced the needle. I took the plate off and removed the part that the bobbin sits in. I noticed that when I manually move the needle, it just barely hits the bottom of the area where the bobbin sits (sorry...don't know what to call it). It kind of gets hung up for a split second. So I tried adjusting the needle, but nothing. It doesn't even look like the bobbin thread is near where the needle would pick it up anyway though. I have no idea what to try next other than take it somewhere. Any ideas?? Thanks in advance!!

Make sure you have put your bobbin back in correctly.Then get out your manual and follow it step by step.
