The upper thread sensor may be bad or need cleaning off but this doesn't happen very often. What does happen is that the thread regulating spring (the spring that the thread goes through just before going up to the take up lever) has come out of a small grooved piece it fits through. By taking the side cover off you should be able to see this and possibly be able to pop it back in. A tiny amount of super glue can keep it from happening again.

Does the metal arm come out to grab the threads to cut it? Is there a blade in the metal arm that cuts the tread? I think a standard utility knife cutter blade is the same size (just like the one that cuts the bobbin thread when you put in a new bobbin). What happens when you activate the cutter is the arm comes out, grabs the threads, brings them to the blade which cuts the threads, the velcro by the cutter holds the bobbin thread in place for the next stitch. Otherwise the thread may end up on top and the top thread would not be able to pick it up for the next stitch.

No real idea what has gone wrong, but first thing I would do would be to clean out the bobbin area thoroughly. There may well be a piece of lint stuck in there that is preventing the mechanism from operating. Is the cutter not working manually i.e. when you touch the cutter button, or not working at thread changes in embroidery? If it in the manual situation you might find that the button is not connecting with the electronics behind that panel correctly and it will need a machine technician to correct it.

you may have to take the machine in to a sewing machine shop to find out why the cutter is not working
