Try raising the needle so the threader does not have to go so low. The owner's manual should have instructions on what height the needle should be set for using the threader.

Here is the information from the owner's manual (Page 20):

Auto needle threading device
Net
If using special threads which wind quickly off the
thread spool, attach a net to the spool before using.
*
Cut the net to match the size of the spool.
1 Net
2 Thread spool
4
3 Spool pin
4 Spool cap
1. Guide the thread through the wire loop thread
6
guide (number "6") and gently pull the thread
towards you.
2. Lower the presser foot.
3. Lower the needle threader lever until it stops.
Hook the thread into the guide and pull it
across to the right.
1 Wire loop thread guide
2 Needle threader lever
3 Guide
*
The needle threading device CANNOT be used
while the needle is LOWERED.

4. Push the needle threader lever toward the back.
Check to be sure that the hook has passed
through the eye of the needle and route the
thread under the metal guides and the hook.
*
Pull the thread toward you and check that it is
being held by the thread hook.

Is card damaged or dirty. You may need to replace it. It like any other cd or computer accessory. If you soil it forget it.

It sounds like the lower shuttle is out of place. You should be able to take out the bobbin case and unlatch the shuttle. It will probably be in 2 pieces. Clean out the dust behind it and replace the shuttle pieces. You may have to fiddle with it a little to get them back in place. Then you can test it by manually turning the wheel. Make sure the bobbin is placed into the bobbin case and that the bobbin turns in the direction that you pull the thread.

Good luck.

THE BOBBIN HAS ONE METAL PART ON TOP AND ANOTHER PART THAT KEEPS THE BOBBIN FROM MOVING FORWARD. TURN YOUR HAND WHEEL AND WATCH WHICH PLACE DOES THE THREAD GET STUCK. IF IT IS THE ONE ON TOP THEN IT WILL NEED TO BE RAISED SLIGHTLY BY MAKING A PULL WITH NEEDLE NOSE PLIERS. (VERY SLIGHT) IF IT GOES UNDER IT BUT STOPS AT THE AREA WHERE THE LITTLE INDENTATION IS THEN YOU WILL NEED TO LOOSEN ONE OF THE SCREWS AND SLIGHTLY TO ALLOW THE THREAD TO PASS BY. THE THREAD HAS GOT TO PASS THESE AREAS OR YOU WILL NOT SEW.

it would be a good idea to have the machine checked.

the computer motherboard could be having a problem.

try a new needle
make sure the bobbin is not warped
make sure the bobbin case area is free of lint or loose thread
make sure you hold the upper thread tail while it's going down to pick up the bobbin thread
make sure there is a 2 to 4 in tail for the upper thread to grab

try changing the needle
rethread the machine top and bobbin
make sure the bobbin is inserted correctly into the bobbin case
and that the bobbin is turned the right way
make sure the thread has not come off the thread take up lever
if the machine continues to see bunch thread underneath then the
machine may need to be checked to see if some part has become
damaged or out of alignment
