Determine the model of your sewing machine. Look on and under the machine for this information. Visit Singerco.com to purchase a manual if you do not have one. The manual will include schematics, threading diagrams and information on how to use your Singer sewing machine. This information can make it much easier to diagnose and repair your sewing machine.
Use the handwheel to make the needle rise and fall. Repeat this process with the foot pedal, treadle or knee press. Wind a bobbin and thread your sewing machine. Sew several test seams to assess the problems with your machine. The most common problem is a tight or sticking handwheel and machine movement.

Very likely the thread is kind of bound up in the bobbin area. Just turn the hand wheel a bit forward and backward several times -after you lift the foot. Apply a gentle pull on the fabric and it should "break" loose. Often teh thread is still stretched around teh bobbin and this releases it.
Feel free to reply to this post if this does not do it.

Testimonial: "Moe, what you have suggested is not the problem. The bobbin does not get bound up. The binding/total stopping is in the hand wheel. Could not figure out how to open the cover to get inside to look at that area."
