SOURCE: My sewing machine will sew
Turned out I am an idiot and had my needle in backwards, leading to the tangling. No idea why the needle plate would not unscrew, but my superhero husband got it off!

Have you reset the tensions for this machine, look in your manual and follow directions. If this is an Elegante there is also a set of instructions on the machine. On the LCD screen there is a picture of a sewing machine with a question mark, touch it, find Troubleshooting and touch that then find the problem you are having and read. If this does not help take it to a Brother dealer and have it reset so as to keep you machine in good running order.

SOURCE: jamming or timing at bobbin
The bobbin case should be loose enough to wiggle a little. Take it out and look for needle strikes or damage on the edges, if it is damaged you can try to smooth it up with fine file as a temporary fix but purchase a new one soon as possible. The other two factors to look at is the upper thread take up lever, make sure the thread is in it and then check the upper tension by pulling thread thru the needle. When the presser foot is in the raised position, the thread should pull thru the needle easily, when the foot is lowered onto the fabric, the thread should be hard to pull. If it is still easy with the foot down then the thread did not go into the tension discs properly or the upper thread tension dial is set at too low a number. It should be on a 3-4 or 5kif I remember correctly.
