Question about Singer Sewing Machines
There are a few things to try first. First check to see if your tension on the top part of the machine hasn't been accidently moved. Check your manual for the correct tension #. If you don't have that, try putting it on a middle number. (i.e. 1-6....set at 3). Change the needle in case it's dull, or nicked. Rethread the bobbin to make sure that's positioned properly. Make sure the bobbin itself isn't "cracked", if it's plastic, or bent, if it's metal. One other thing to check is the bobbin holder itself. Make sure it's in correctly. If it's not placed in it's correct position, it will catch the thread and tangle it up. Again, I would refer to your owners manual to check how it pops out and in. Every type of machine is different, but not that difficult. Hope this helps.

Sounds like timing of hook/needle. The needle should go down, a mechanism in the bobbin area moves to sweep the top thread around to pick up the bottom thread. Suggest taking it to a service technician, preferrably one authorized to repair your brand of machine. Check website for your brand and it might list authorized dealers close to you. Good luck.
