It can be very frustrating if your machine is not sewing properly. This guide is about sewing machine needle not catching thread. And check the needle correct position or bobbin winding correctly . Also try using the same thread in top & bottom.

SOURCE: Thread catching and bunching up in bobbin latch while sewing

I had the same problem where the thread was getting all bunched up on the underside. I took everything out and followed the manual concerning threading, then manually moved my right wheel to see if it would get bunched up. It took awhile, but I finally got it sew correctly again. I;m still not sure what was wrong with it. I have a singer 7470.

SOURCE: Singer Sewing Machine model 9224. Bobbin thread

If you turn the handwheel, can you see a metal ring rotating around the outer edge of the bobbin case? If not rotating, broken gear or timing belt off.
If that ring is turning, remove the needle plate and bobbin case. As this ring now rotates, you will a finger on the ring that will pass behind the needle from right to left and it should catch the thread from the eye of the needle. If this finger, the "hook" passes above the eye, you have a timing problem.

Let me know.

Thread is gathering under cloth


Check that the thread is tight around the bobbin. Make sure that the bobbin is in the right way around - the bobbin thread should double back on itself coming out of the bobbin holder. The bobbin tension adjustment is the small screw in the plate on the bobbin case that the thread passes under as it comes off the bobbin and goes out.

Dont know if that its a q or not and cant figure out how to thread the bobbin


Make sure the thread is coming off the bobbin counter-clockwise, hold the end of the thread in your left hand, drop the bobbin into the case, and pull the thread into the slot at the front of the bobbin case by pulling it up and around the bobbin case to the left until you hear a click. That means the thread is in the bobbin tension. Then hold the needle thread in your left hand but don't pull on it; drop the needle into the machine and bring it back up by hand with the balance wheel, and as it comes back up, gently pull on the needle thread. That brings the bobbin thread up through the throat plate in a loop so you can pull it on out, and you're ready to go.

Multiple threads are coming out of the bottom from the bobbin and stopping the needle.
