I had the same problem with cleaning and jamming and this might sound silly, but when you're in the middle of trying to fix it remember to look up see that it is threaded up top. I did everything the pp's suggested and when they didn't work I realized the top thread wasn't still threaded around the tension thing anymore. After rethreading it, it worked fine. But I DID reduce the amount of thread on the bobbin at the same time as Drazil suggested.

the hook driver (still in machine) is 1/2 moon shape. The hook is also 1/2 moon shape. If you set the machine on its back, it's easier. Set the hook 1/2 into the other 1/2 of the hook driver to make a circle. Then put the hook cover on (machine still on its back) with the tabs for the twist locks pointed out. Needle gaurd to the top of the machine. Snap the twist locks in place and viola!

You might need to clean the shuttle assembly.
1. Raise the needle bar to its highest position and remove the bobbin case.
2. Push levers sideways of the shuttle assembly and liftshuttle and shuttle race cove out by the center pin.
3. Clean the shuttle race of any lint or small particles of thread with a small brush.
4. Put a drop of oil on the center pin of the shuttle and on the shuttle race.
to reassemble, hold sjuttle by center pin and it carefull into assembly opposit the shuttle driver. Slip shuttle race cover into place. Snap the levers into position.
Occasionally remove the needle plate and clean feed dog with soft brush.
I hope that helps!

Take it to your nearest Sears store and go right to the sewing machine department, they are usually very helpful and can tell you if it needs service or not. Take your manual with you.

The link shows a photo of the bobbin assembly. Its sounds like youve left the latches open that secures the assembly.
