It could be that there is a loose piece of thread, or some fluff which is obstructing the tension gauge. Try blowing around the theading area (or even run the hoover pipe near it to see if you can **** it out). I cleared mine by folding a piece of non fluffy material and rubbing gently between the tension dial and machine.

SOURCE: won't stitch properly
ever tried adjusting the thread tension control? clean if possible
tighen it more, loose tension adjustment causes loose stitch and tangling of the thread.

Your timing has been messed up by breaking the needle. When the needle hit the bobbin race, it shoved the needle bar up and now the needle is not in the correct position to catch the bobbin thread when the race rotates. The needle has a little dip in the back, called the scarf. When you take the neddle plate off and watch it move, you should see the little hook pass through the scarf. That's how it makes the locking stitch and picks up the bobbin thread. Unfortunately, you will need to take this in to a dealer or service place to have them adjust the needle bar height. It's not a complicated task so see if they can check it while you wait. It may be more difficult to fix, like retiming the machine. But it doesn't sound like you've done any major damage to the mechanism.

SOURCE: janome straight stitch loose
I don't know if this is the right answer for any of you, but thought I'd put my 2 cents worth in. Often this can be the bobbin in backwards. It needs to unwind a certain way depending on the machine. I've heard a phrase for this: Mind your p's and q's which means some wind off to the right like a q, others to the left like a p. Mine has to unwind one way then be slipped backwards into a little slot or it does that loose bottom thread looping and bunching someone here mentioned. It seems everytime I get that problem I rethread the top thread 100 times before it clicks again and I remember it could be the bobbin thread. Either your manual will tell you the correct way, or you could experiment and try one or the other. Once you figure out whether you're a p or a q, mark it on your machien somewhere to remind yourself.
Good Luck and Happy Sewing!

breaking thread and thread below not hook up by upper thrread, this is due on not properly set up of thread tension,first check bobbins winding see figure.the threads should
be counter clockwise.
the theading on upper set up should prorerly inserted follow figures.
the dial set up tension should start at #3 to # 5
the stitch tension should be set to # 8 to # 12
use trial run for fabrics,diffferent set up in every fabric tru to study before sewing in other fabrics.have a nice day don't forget to rate me.thank s a lot
