Brother Industrial Sewing Machine not picking up bobbin thread
I was in the middle of sewing through some webbing to repair a strap on a bag when we had a power cut. When the power came back on and I went back to my sewing, suddenly the bottom thread is not being caught by the needle. It will bring the thread up through the plate when I have re-inserted the bobbin but will not catch it for sewing.
I have done all the usual things – rethreaded the machine, changed the threads, replaced the needle (several times) and I still have this problem. Money is a bit tight at the moment and I don’t want to have to call out an expert but wondered if there was anything else I could try before throwing money at it?
