Hi! The first thing I'd do is look for thread caught on the bobbin winding spindle, but below the little platform where the bobbin sits. It's really hard to get at, but if you shine a light from the side, you should be able to bend your head (or tilt the machine back) so that you can see the underside of that platform. When I've gotten thread caught on that spindle, I take my scaple or a craft knife and carefully cut the thread free, then use a set of tweezers to pull it out. You're working in a very cramped area, so be patient and go slowly.
Make sure the lid that uncovers the bobbin winding mechanism is as far back as it will go; the same goes for the spool that holds the thread.
Sometimes I get a a high-pitched squeaking noise (but it's not loud) just sewing. It comes from the handwheel and I don't know why my machine does it. It stops if I push the handwheel in (although the handwheel doesn't seem to be out.)
See if these suggestions help--if not, let me know, and we can try something else.

Testimonial: "Thank You. I will try your suggestions!"
This happened to me and I eventually realized that there is a small door flap at the top near the "4" in the threading series that can get stuck open. Normally this flap goes up and down with the presser foot, but if it gets stuck open even when the presser foot is down, tapping it or closing it manually will make the error go away.
