Question about Janome Sewist 500 Sewing Machine
When I try and sew the thread of my bobbin becomes tangled and the needle stops. I end up with a large tangle of thread
Make sure you are putting the bobbin in right side up. Some times it will do this if your needle size is incorrect to the fabric weight.

Are you using heavy thread for the top stitching? If so you will need to tighten the top tension. You would think if it is thicker thread that you would need to loosen the top tension but you have to tighten it to help pull it up through the fabric. If you use heavy thread in the bobbin you would have to loosen the bobbin tension. Check and make sure the thread is seated in the top tension and make sure there is no lint in the tension disc. It is definitely a tension issue. Hope this helps.

Possibly your bobbin is in the machine backwards or upside down. The thread needs to come off the bobbin in a certain way (or direction) specific to each machine. If it will fit, try flipping the bobbin over or around.
Another thing might be the thread tension, make sure you have threaded the feed from the spool of thread properly. Often it will do this on its own.
If the bobbin is in correctly and through the **** in the side of the bobbin casing, make sure the top is threaded correctly. The part the goes up and down, I don't know the name, but it is right above the needle and if the thread is not through this part you will get a mess on the underside.
