Question about Sewing Machines
The bobbin thread jammed so I removed the bobbin case to detangle and now it won't cry to let me know I am running out of bobbin thread
The thread jam could have done something to a sensor or could
have caused a problem with the computer motherboard.

This is a common problem with all sewing machines. You must make sure that both needle and bobbin thread are behind the sewing foot and that there is at least 4inches of each thread before you begin stitching. Thread jams can also be caused by improper placement of bobbin in the casing. Place the bobbin in the case so the open side is facing you, the thread end should be on your right, then slide the thread into the opening leaving about 6 inches to pull through. It may look like it should be the other way, but there needs to be some tension. If these solutions do not help, you probably need to have your machine cleaned and adjusted.

Ok, hang on! This can get tricky! Remove the bobbin. Remove the presser foot and the needle. Remove the throat plate. This gives you plenty of room to monkey with your bobbin case. NOW, lay the bobbin case in its correct area and gently rotate it until it falls into place. It may take several tries. Once you're satisfied that it's secure, snap the holding clips into place and it should all fit nicely. THEN place your bobbin in the case correctly...check the diagram in the manual. Depending on the machine, some bobbins have the threads coming off counterclockwise and others have them coming off clockwise, but your manual should show. Sometimes, there's even a diagram on the throat plate or the bobbin case as well.
Good luck. Hope this works. If this solves your problem, please come back and rate my answer!
