Question about Singer Sewing Machines
Machine runs, it's threaded and the bobbin is in correctly but thread doesn't seem to lock to form the stitch. Sometimes it forms the first stitch then no other. Feed dogs work so fabric moves smoothly over them.
Try changing the needle--make sure the needle is the correct one
for the fabric being sewed.
also make sure the needle is turned the correct way in the needle
holder and pushed all the way up into the needle holder.

What you have going on is a bobbin problem. The knots are referred to as birds' nests and happen when your bobbin thread gets caught on a piece of the bobbin casing. The large, loose stitches are normally caused by a problem with the bobbin case, a bobbin that is would properly, or when you're getting to the end of the bobbin's thread and the thread is loosely would on the bobbin at that point.
You're best bet is probably to buy a new bobbin casing. They're usually about $25 or so and you should be able to find one on eBay by searching for Singer (your machine name and model) under the Crafts category. The silver plate on top of the area covering where you place your bobbin into has screws you need to carefully remove (careful not to loose them!). If you need to, take pictures with your cellphone or digital camera as you remove the old bobbin casing so you can see how to put the new one in.
This should take care of the problem. If, for some reason it doesn't, you may well have a problem ALSO with your bobbin tension, and that should be looked at by a Singer Technician. You can find one in the yellow pages near you or probably by searching Yahoo Local. Happy Sewing.
