SOURCE: tangled bobbin thread
Okay. I had this problem too. try taking the bobbin casing out. I had a bit of thread lintg caught in a remote area of the under-plate area. Blow it out with canned air and oil your machine. That should help. It fixed mine.

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.
Hope this has been helpful for you bothl Liz M

re insert the needle, maybe you did not put the needle up as far as it is to go. Make sure the flat side of the needle is to the back of the machine. Without any thread in the machine hand turn the wheel and look to see if the hook of your bobbin would/could catch the thread (to see if timing is right)
then thread the machine and hand turn the wheel and see what it is doing.
Your timing might be off, but I do not think that is likely. Though it is possible that when the needle fell out, it hit something hard, broke, and pushed the machine out of timing. then you need to bring it in.

when you have bunching on the bottom, you have a problem with the top thread: no tension. (and visa versa) Make sure the thread runs through the tension discs, these discs are activated when you put the presser foot down, so you want to thread the machine with the foot up, also feel if there no burrs, hooks, or whatever, so your top thread comes smooth off the spool, no jerking.

Threaded with presser foot up.
Feed dogs are engaged.
Stitch length set at proper length.
Thread is feeding from the bobbin spool in the correct order and through the proper guides.
Problem still there - take the machine and a sample of the stitching back to the repair guy and ask him to check the timing.
When you pick up the machine, take a scrap of fabric and give the machine a thorough test run - threading, bobbin winding, stitching before leaving the shop.
