SOURCE: replacing the bobbin case
1) Use a strong polyester type thread, NOT FINE COTTON
2) Use a low tension,nuber 2 for exanple
3) Always check the threading, if in doubt rethread all the way
from the top bottom making sure you pass roun and not
through thr fixed holder spring.
4) Make sure the thread moves freely with the tension disc held
to the right while pulling the thread through the needle
5) Be very careful that the thread is pulled up from the lower
bobbin correctly and check there is no muddle or stray
thread under the cover
6 Dont pull on the fabric (not thick for beginning) - just guide it

Most of the time it is because the needle was inserted with the flat side facing you instead of away from you. And for the heck of it, put in a different needle, there may have been a burr or some defect on your new needle. Other than that, it could be your timing.

SOURCE: I am having trouble getting my singer 6199 sewing machine to sew. The top thread will not pick up bot thread. I tried changing needle, changing bobbin, rewinding bobbin, rethreading machine & bobb
did you get the needle in correctly--all the way up into the needle holder
& the flat side of the needle goes to the back of the machine
also after you check the needle & it's in correctly it's very possible that the machine is out of time & a sewing machine repair technican would have to retime the machine

have you tried a new needle
Correct needle insertion is mandatory for proper use of your sewing machine.
Raise the needle bar to the highest point, then loosen the needle clamp screw to remove the old needle.
Place the new needle in the needle clamp with the flat side of the needle facing the back, (round needle, the groove in the needle should face away from the shaft).
Push the needle all the way up as far as it will go. Then tighten the needle clamp screw.
check the bobbin to make sure it's not damaged
rethread the machine top & bobbin
clean under the needle plate & in the bobbin area for lint or threads
also make sure the top thread doesn't come off the thread take up
