Question about Sewing Machines
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.

SOURCE: bobbin thread getting jammed
Are you making sure that your pressure foot is up when you thread the upper thread? If it isn't then your thread is not seating correctly in the tension disks. It will then be loose and make a birds nest(mess) under what you are trying to sew. The other thing to check is which way you are putting the bobbin into the bobbin case, different machines do it different ways. Some want the thread to come out of the case in the same direction as the slot on the case and some want it to come off in the opposite direction.
Probably when your son broke the needle he knocked it out of time. You will need to have a sewing machine technician to repair that.

I have two possible solutions:
1. you have the wrong bobbin and it doesn't grip the winder.
2. the small spring on the winder spindle is missing or bent, it is what applies pressure to the bobbin for winding.

SOURCE: Bobbin is not winding correctly
slide plate may be worn - i had the same problem. try holding down the center of the bobbin with a pin while slide plate is in the winding position.

I just figured out why my bobbine was winding on shaft instead of on the bobbin. first of all make sure the bobbin is setting up high enough, top of bobbin needs to be a fraction higher then the bobbin shuttle, next check to make sure there are no burrs on the bobbin, then make sure that the thear is catching in the groove (**** in top) of the bobbin. In order to get mine to wind i had to lett the tread go down and then slip the thread in the groove. also remember to leave the pressure foot up do not put it down. let me know if this helps.
