Set the tension control at mid-range and raise the presser foot.
Make sure the thread is not caught on the spool cap or wrapped around the spool pin.
If the problem is not at the spool, and you still cannot get the thread though with the presser foot up - there may be an internal jam.
Open the tension (set at zero), and with the presser foot up, try to pull through a heavier thread - don't tug, you just want to "floss".
If you can't pull the thread though by hand, you will need to take the machine in for service.
If you try to open the enclosed threading area, you may not get everything back as it should be and it will still need to go into the shop.

If you are putting too much fabric for the machine to sew this will happen. Does it sew any other fabrics? Some machines....even many commercial machines.........will not sew real heavy fabrics. Any thing over 1/3 of an inch and thats probably the case.

If the thread breaks at the needle and is feeding smoothly from the spool, you may have the tension too high. It is impossible to say what the setting should be because the knob rotates all the way around several times. Loosen it off until you see needle thread pull to the back of the quilt, then tighten until it just balances the interlocking of the stitch in the fabric. Test with little swirls, that's most likely to pull needle thread to back.Also, check that the needle is properly installed and that the hook to needle timing and clearance are good.Nesting of thread underneath usually happens if the foot lifter is left up or the tread is not fully in the disks of the tension unit.
