Embroidery Machine Will Not Pick Up Bottom Thread?

I changed the needle, rethreaded top and bottom, and used the proper thread. For some reason the bobbin case does not move enough for the needle to catch the thread. It stopped picking up the thread in the middle of an embroidery job and has not worked since. Any ideas? It is a White 3300 embroidery machine.

Sounds like you broke a thread and a piece is stuck somewhere (or did it break a needle). Also it will do that if when you rethreaded it you missed or put one in the wrong hole. I have had mine l6 years and still get the threading program wrong at times. And I have had to do others who have done the same thing. If you thread it wrong around a looper it won't pick up. Take your book out and make sure all is threaded going in the right places at right time. They do seem to have a mind of their own don't they?
