If the machine is now threaded, lift the presser foot.
Now, pull about 10" of thread through the needle.
The next time you thread the machine, lift the presser foot first.
When the presser foot is up, the tension control opens and allows the thread to "seat" into the control, then when the foot is down the control closes to the indicated setting.
When threading the machine with the foot is down, thread does not enter the tension control and when you start to sew, there is no tension on the thread.
No tension = loosey, goosey, loopy stitches underneath.
Because the lack of tension on the top thread, the bobbin thread cannot lock a proper stitch.

If your screen stated"main motor blocked" then I suggest you remove the thread,both the top and the bottom.Please change the needle too.but If the problem is unsolved,kindly loosen or unscrew the casing which is in the front of the bobbin, then look/find anything that might be obstructing the bobbin. check again the thread, bobbin and needle.Also for the last thing put an oil to the parts which you think it needs it like the moving parts re-start or reboot it then leave for a whole night.
Thank you and good luck...

if there is a thread in the hook area try taking a pair of needle nose
pliers to try & get the thread out, if that doesn't work then you might
think about taking the machine to a sewing machine shop to have the
machine checked since the needle will not go up & down & handwheel

Clean out the bobbin area. Try to determine where you sensor is and used canned air to clean that. Hopefully it's just a dirty sensor and not a bad one.
