It could just be that your needle is blunt and you need to put a new one in. It is amazing how many different problems a blunt needle can cause. Hope its sorted now.

Why does thread gather in bobbin area and jam machine

Completely unthread the top and bobbin threads. Clean any lint build up out of the bobbin race assembly using the little brush and some canned air. Check that the needle is inserted correctly...with the flat side towards the back. Then carefully rethread the top and the bobbin threads. Make sure the bobbin is inserted correctly...if it's backwards the machine won't sew properly.

Thread keeps winding around my bobbin holder. What could I be doing wrong?

Misthreading, most likely. Take all the thread off and out of the machine and clean the machine, especially around the feed dog and bobbin case areas. Rethread from scratch, remembering to thread the upper part of the machine with the presser foot up, and make sure the bobbin is sitting in the bobbin case right way around. Fetch up the bobbin thread and hold it and the top thread end together behind the presser foot while you take the first few stitches of the seam.

Bobbin Issues

On the bobbin holder, there is a tiny adjuster you should be able to undo or do up with fingernail or small screwdriver cotton should be firm when pulled by hand not to loose or not to tight.

Bottom thread too loose; tried rethreading top thread, cleaning bobbin case, refilling bobbin, changing needle, adjusting top tension

Check for correct bottom thread tension.
It's provided by a flat spring on the bobbin holder.
When the bobbin is correctly installed, pulling on the thread
should meet with slight resistance, and the bobbin should spin without
trying to jump out of the bobbin holder.

Thread keeps getting stuck in bobbin holder area

Unthread your machine, clean out the bobbin area and brush it, then totally rethread your machine. Make sure that there are no tangles in your thread. Try that, good luck

My needle thread keeps breaking. It seems that the bobbin holder is also loose and flopping around. It makes this cha-chunk noise then the thread is broken, usually with the first stitch or two. What am...

Sounds like it needs a cleaning underneath the bobbin case, lint or thread can be trapped underneath. Use a new paint brush to do this then oil it according to your manual.

I have the futura ce-100. When embroidering it

This annoys the heck out of me, cause it happens a lot more than it should. There can be some valid reasons as to why it happens, though.

Your top thread could be broken or about to break; your bobbin thread could be broken, about to break or empty/about to become empty and is loose around the bobbin; you could have a birds' nest (a mass of thread just under the fabric/presser foot and/or within the feed dog and bobbin) forming and causing a jam; or it could be your Futura having a little bit of a hissy fit. Obviously, if you've checked for broken thread you need to move on. Check for a birds' nest by removing the fabric and clip your threads. If you find one, clear it, rethread your bobbin and begin sewing again. If there's no birds' nest, then place the fabric back in and try sewing/embroidering again. If the machine acts up again, I recommend removing the fabric/hoop, rethreading your top and bobbin threads, replacing fabric/hoop and resuming where you left off. If the machine still gives you trouble, try hitting the start button for a couple of times and seeing if the problem doesn't simply resolve itself. When you're embroidering areas that have a few small, short stitches only, the machine seems to act up a little and then behaves fine once you bypass the area. Be sure to take all of the other steps first, though, because a birds' nest will RUIN a beautiful seam or embroidery.

Machine not working

I had this happen the first day I got my machine. The bobbin case has probably came loose from the holder. There is a step by step cleaning instruction in the manual and it tells you how to reset the bobbin case in the holder in the manual.
