SOURCE: bobbin filling on Singer 626
The Singer 626 has a self-winding bobbin. You place the empty bobbin in the bobbin thingie (sorry for being so untechnical). On the left of the bobbin you will see a "lever" with a circular top on it (I think it is red-ish) Again, sorry for being so untechnical. Press the "lever" down. Thread your machine, thread the needle, wrap the excess thread from the needle around the knob that tightens the needle and holds it in place and press your foot down on the foot pedal. The bobbin will automatically wind as you hold the foot pedal down. Do not wind the thread onto the bobbin past the outer white line.

you have to make sure the bobbin thread is positioned right in the middle. When the needle comes down (into the bobbin compartment), you can peer into the bobbin compartment and see a loop of thread (coming out of the needle). You want to catch that bobbin (thread) in the loop of thread (that runs from the needle).

Sounds like the take-up lever is not threaded.
Remove the thread from the machine, turn the handwheel until the take-up lever is at its highest position, raise the presser foot and rethread the machine. Set the upper tension dial to 5 and retry.

Testimonial: "cheers machine running fine now only occaisional jam , but mostly smooth "
did you put the bobbin thread in the tensioner? that would be the cut in the side of the bobbin case to pull the thread under the tensioner. if not it will cause problems. but if the top thread is looking good then the top thread is the problem, thread the machine with the presser foot up to let the thread into the tensioner, if it looks good on the top and not the bottom it is the upper thread if it looks good on the bottom and not the top it is the lower thread
