I have a necci 539 sewing machine. I am brand new to this whole sewing business. My bobbin was loaded for me and I was sewing until I figured out that my bobbin was out of thread. I put another bobbin in that was already threaded but I cannot get my bobbin thread to catch with the top needle. I am so frustrated right now...any help out there?

Actually, $10 for a manual is probably a valuable investment. It will not only help you with threading & winding the bobbin but also with maintenance and care of your machine and as well as how to use your machine. Similar brand machines thread and wind the bobbin in the same manner. So, even finding a similar Necchi and the bobbin winding method should be helpful.
Be sure the machine is threaded properly. Also, the presser foot MUST be raised before threading so the thread will seat properly in the tension disk.
The standard setting for the upper tension is the midway point between the high and low number.
If the bobbin thread is still way too loose, you can try adjusting (tightening) the bobbin case tension. If that does not fix the problem, you can probably try purchasing a new bobbin case for your machine as the old one may be broken or worn.
try cleaning under the needle plate where the feed dogs are to get out any lint or loose threads
then clean the bobbin area for lint or loose threads
rethread the machine- top thread & bobbin--make sure to thread every thread guide
make sure the thread moves smoothly around the tension dial
also check the top tension setting -usually 3 or 4 is good
make sure the power cord is inserted correctly into the machine
it could also be the foot pedal itself may be going bad--it would have to be checked by a repair shop
always use the same thread on top & in bobbin area
put new needle in also
also some thread & needles are not compatable--try this
Cut 6-8 inch piece of thread of the spool you are going to use for your project
Take the needle you are going to use for the project
& insert the thread thru the eye of the needle
& lift one end of the thread to a 45 degree angle
& if the needle is the right size for the thread it will slide down the thread
But if the needle hangs on the thread you need one size larger needle for the thread
Make sure the bobbin has a 3-5 inch thread tail
Then make sure the top thread has a 3-5 inch tail
Then hold the top thread tail with your fingers (away from the needle)
& use the hand wheel on the right hand side of the machine to slowly
Lower the needle in the bobbin area & see if the bobbin thread will pick
Up that way
