The solution that I found last night was the thread tension. I have never touched the dial, only had it set on 'auto." When I started playing with it, I realized the top thread should be really easy to pull through the machine and it wasn't. I started turning the dial (to 3 or 4) and the thread slid through the machine perfectly. No more birds nest! I really thought it was bobbin initially because of the horrible sound it was making.

The machine stops because the sensor near the check spring(in the tension area) tells it the thread is broken or not there.. You can try to clean it out again but it's probably going to have to go in for service.

I had a problem with the thread balling up under the face plate, too.
I have a Kenmore 385 16528000. I don't know if with other brands that this will pertain to them, but this was my solution:
I had the needle in the wrong way! The top part of the needle that is inserted into the machine needs to go in with the FLAT SIDE AWAY from you. So I hope that helps somebody!!

I have fixed it now the bobbin case didn't seem to stay seated during sewing or tangling i should say!. I decided to change the needle and from then on everything worked fine.
