If the bobbin is in the casing correctly then follow these steps...spin your wheel toward you until the threaded needle drops a thread around the bobbin casing it will slide down around the casing from center to the right and down. one the thread is just over half way around gentle pull the tail of your thread from the needle. It should move up and to the left collecting the thread from the bobbin casing. and a loop will arise below your presser foot (which should be up).pull that loop up until the tail of the bobbin is visable. Now you are ready to sew.

If you turn the handwheel, can you see a metal ring rotating around the outer edge of the bobbin case? If not rotating, broken gear or timing belt off.
If that ring is turning, remove the needle plate and bobbin case. As this ring now rotates, you will a finger on the ring that will pass behind the needle from right to left and it should catch the thread from the eye of the needle. If this finger, the "hook" passes above the eye, you have a timing problem.
Let me know.
