Question about Sewing Machines
I have looked everywhere and cleaned all the lint out I feel that the bobbin tension is off because it is "nesting" underneath as well
It sounds to me like your bobbin tension is off. Take the embroidery unit off and set the upper tension to "S". Run a line of straight stitches, then a line of zigzag stitches. It is helpful if the bobbin thread and the top thread are different colors for this. If the top thread is almost a straight line, your bobbin tension is too loose. If your bobbin tension is almost a straight line, your bobbin tension is too tight.
To adjust the bobbin tension, take the bobbin case out and locate two screws on the side. The one you want is the straight-slot screw on the left; leave the Phillips on the right alone. The rule is "lefty-loosy", "righty-tighty" turn in the correct direction only 1/4 turn and sew another line; you should see SOME improvement, but it may take repeated attempts to get it in balance. When it is, put the unit back on, and don't forget to change the upper tension to "E".

I was having the same problem. When I took out the bobbin case, I saw the culprit - the tiniest piece of a broken needle. Removed that, problem solved. So random!

The opening fits on the right side, toward back. There is the silver ring with the slot in it for the bobbin. That slot is facing the sewer.

Recently had same problem. Underneath the bobbin area on the bottom of the machine is a small white plastic piece that resembles a fan. Singer calls this the bobbin cam actuator. It is usually cracked along the sleeve that fits over the metal pin, bar? This is the mechanism that lifts the bobbin when it is wound. When its broken it can't lift the bobbin to be wound properly.

Are you using bobbin thread? Is your thead new? Is themachine threaded correctly?
Make sure that when you thread the upper part the thread go under the circle that pull it.
Another thing is that when you hit the start button, pull the upper thread until the machine goes two or three times. It helps the bobbin thread to come up and the machine start sewing.I you leave it along the thread sometimes doesnot comes up and that is why the machine beeps.
I use this technique to make sure it doesnt beep and to cut the thread (the one at the beginning so it doesn't mess my design)
