Question about Sewing Machines
My top thread keeps getting caught down where the bobbin is. It used to be apparent only after I prepared to snip the threads --now I can't sew at all before it jams. I have rewound bobbin, replaced thread and needle, checked tension on bobbin. Stumped.
Check to make sure the top thread isn't coming off the thread take up lever
also make sure the bobbin is turned the right way in the bobbin case
make sure the needle is turned the correct way in the needle holder
also try a different bobbin
if none of these suggestions help, then it would be a good idea to have the machine checked for a timing problem

SOURCE: a horrible tangle
This is a bit late, could the bobbin case not be seated properly? You need to put it into place and then turn it clockwise until it seats soundly in the opening. Also, check for burrs...the needle may have left a rough mark on the plastic or metal in the bobbin area. A piece of batting, or even an old knee hi should snag on any rough areas.

SOURCE: will not pick up bobbin thread
Unusual for this machine. Check to be sure the needle is inserted with the flat side to the back of the machine. If it is, remove the needle plate, bobbin and bobbin case. Turn the hand wheel slowly toward you and see if the point of the hook is above or below the eye of the needle when the hook point is aligned behind the needle. If the eye is above the point of the hook the machine is out of time and best taken to qualified technician.
