Oh boy! I've worked on industrial sewing machines for over 30 years, but the home sewing machines are like comparing cadillacs to mopeds. No offense, but if you want performance out of a machine try an industrial. It will shock you with the difference. Be glad to help you find the right one.
Anyway, the problem you are having is quite common. First, make sure it is threaded right especially the moving spring on the needle thread tension) and the needle is new. This generally covers 75% of the problem. Make sure the bobbin thread is threaded correctly.
If you are still having the problem remove the bobbin/bobbin case and observe the needle/hook point relationship as you turn the handwheel. The hook point should pass behind the needle at the scarf of the needle (indention just above eye of needle) If it is not so the needle bar may have moved up on you. Did the machine get jammed?
I'm not sure about the rod you're talking about but lets try this first.

SOURCE: bobbin thread and top thread
The bobbin may not be installed exactly in the right way (a little askew).
The Tension needs to be adjusted
Your needle is bent or dull
One thread does not work well with the other. The threads must be able to slide and tighten, too much friction for one thread can cause tangles.
Let me know if any of those are pointing us in the right direction. i can give more advise as needed. Also, check youtube.com to learn how to set the tension on your machine (most are similar, the knob is just in a different place on each machine).
The tension contolls the feed rate for the bottom (bobbin thread). The top thread is mostly controlled by the stitch length knob. Play with both a bit. Bottom should come out when pulled gently but give some resistance. Good luck.

This is Really not that big a problem. Simply pull out the bobbin thread with a long lead, put the assembled bobbin into the sewingmachine and take that long thread and close it between the sliding door and the machine itself to hold it temporarly.
Most sewing machine problems are caused by the usasge of wrong thread type. Make sure you have a thread that is for a sewing machine use, that is, good strong stuff, not hand needle basting thread as that will cause much problems.
Often the bobbin is thought to be the problem, those things are almost never the problem. A source of problems also is the usage of wrong or improperly machined flat on the needle itself. Be sure to buy a quality needle as that flat on there, if machined not deep enough will not allow the bobbin to pick up the thread, wind it around and form the stitch.

In my Brother CE-4000, it appears as though the feed dogs (which you can change to a higher position or a lower position) are allowing the bobbin case to spin all the way around and then the needle hits the bobbin case. When the feed dogs are in the lowest position, the bobbin case does not spin all the way around when the needle moves up and down (and therefore the needle does not get stuck in the bobbin case. I am wondering if this is a problem with the feed dogs/case?

Hi. You "feel" that the machine is threaded correctly? You should probably completely pull the thread out and start over, making certain that it is threaded correctly. Once that is done, double check to make sure the thread is pulled all the way into the tension discs. Make sure also that you have lowered the presser foot. Is the bobbin inserted in it's case correctly? Every aspect is critical to proper function. You may also want to revue your manual.
