SOURCE: threading a sewing machine
What do you mean you are unable to pull the bobbin thread through, elaboration would help solve the problem...
I suspect I'm having the same problem with you if it's anything to do with the top thread looping around in the bobbin holder.

The grease has hardened and that is what makes it not work. You need to remove the spring and clean all the old grease off it. You can put new grease on if you want but it isn't necessary. The machine should be lubricated with a good quality sewing machine oil(not 3 in 1). You need to oil any place that moves and rubs, This includes the ends of each shaft, the needle bar and the cinnecting links that drive the needle bar. Nothing is permanently lubricated.. you'll find this machine will run much smoother and quieter with fresh lubrication.As a matter of fact, if you use the machine a lot, it should be lubricated once a year and never less thanonce every 5 years.
One more thing. If it is on the main shaft that it has hardened you can spray it with a mixture of fantastic, water and some ammonia. Free it up and give it a light shot of oil.

Hi there.. Looking at your machine from the top, there should be an opening near the bobbin winder, then there should be others located near the top left of the machine, and on the base to the right of the feed dog. you can also put a couple of drops on the feed dog, take out the bobbin and put a couple of drops on the moving parts and run it with out a needle or thread to get the oil in to where it needs to go.

I solved this problem by going to a post on FixYa dated 6/4/08 oor 09 by Timetoknit.
The post mentioned a free download of "White's" Manual that is out of print, at White's sister company "the Singer Sewing Company's" website: www.singerco.com It also gave the download steps. The download steps are on my Solution post.
I downloaded the manual and printed it on 7/30/09.
Thanks for being here.

Is it a three or four thread machine?
A three thread has little strength used as a seam.
On a four thread,basically, it is a tension problem. You need to ensure that the presser foot is in the up position before threading. The correct path is followed for all threads. You are using good quality thread. Reset the dials to 'normal tension' #3 or 4 .... then slowly work your way from there. The manual should offer advice on which tension to adjust to correct a particular problem.
