Here's how I do it. I hold the thread with my left hand, just like the thread wikk be pulled up. With the right hand pull the metal tab toward me, hold it open while pushing bobbin in and twisting. When bobbin stops turning and feels seated, then release the metal tab to lock. good luck!

SOURCE: replacing the bobbin case
1) Use a strong polyester type thread, NOT FINE COTTON
2) Use a low tension,nuber 2 for exanple
3) Always check the threading, if in doubt rethread all the way
from the top bottom making sure you pass roun and not
through thr fixed holder spring.
4) Make sure the thread moves freely with the tension disc held
to the right while pulling the thread through the needle
5) Be very careful that the thread is pulled up from the lower
bobbin correctly and check there is no muddle or stray
thread under the cover
6 Dont pull on the fabric (not thick for beginning) - just guide it

Try inserting the bobbin in the reverse direction. Most machines take a bobbin clockwise or counterclockwise and it can make a difference. Also try a new needle, a bad needle is often the problem believe it or not.

Thread the machine as if you were going to sew. When you thread the needle, pull the thread off to the left and wrap it around the thumb screw on the left and just above the needle. Wrap it only 2 or 3 times and hold the end of the thread. With bobbin in place and the face plate slid open, push the thumb lever on the left under the face plate to the left. Begin to 'sew'. As you do, the bobbin will wind and the thread you are holding will detach. Once the bobbin is full to the outside line, slide the face plate the closed position. As it closes, it will release the thumb lever. Put the needle in the slightly lowered position and slide something blunt under the pressure foot pulling thread from both the bobbin and the needle; cut the thread when you've pulled it out sufficiently.

Bent? Replace it!
Always thread needle with presser foot in up position. If presser foot sitting flat against feed dogs when you thread the needle eye, the tension disks will not allow thread to locate itself into tension disks at all, in which case, no matter how much you adjust settings - nothing will do any good UNTIL you thread needle eye with presser foot in up position so tension disks can work.
If you don't think that is problem, then set machine on a straight stitch with straight stitch foot, set tension on 4, stitch with on 4-5, test light to medium woven fabric with size #11 needle to test.
Always clean shuttle and feed dogs for broken thread or lint, and put in new needle before getting panicky.
