I moved a year and a half ago and my sewing machine has been in storage until today. I got it out, threaded it and all but I can't seem t get the bobbin tension to be right. It keeps throwing out a ton of thread at the bobbin side. Any ideas on what is wrong?

all sewing machines are the same a very simple. to adjust timing so the bobbin catches the thread, just slightly loosen screw on the main needle shaft(the one that has the needle and goes up and down), move the flywheel so that bobbin point is behind needle at lowest point, tighten screw. test it out. you cannot break the sewing machine, tho you can break a few needles as you master the timing technique. dont be afraid to try. it really is easy. one summer many, many years ago, while i was in college i worked for singer in a singer store. things havent changed since then. (almost 45 years ago). good luck
I have a Kenmore sewing machine. I'ts about 30 to 40 years old. I have never had a problem with it until today. The needle got stuck down where bobbin is. I don't know if it should be seen by a pro. I can not get the needle out. The Bar on the side will not move either way. help...........!
The Singer Harmonie 300 is the USA Model 9134. You can download the PDF from this link, which is at the Singerco.com website: http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/2d743e26f022a5a8d564c0fbeaad865bc4b7d00e.pdf
I had a Golden Touch 'N Sew many years ago and as the machine aged and parts became worn, step 4 of this bobbin winding diagram started to become a problem and I had to sometimes try several times before the "tabs" would release. If they did not release, the machine "thought" it was still winding the bobbin and would not sew.
Try inserting the bobbin in the reverse direction. Most machines take a bobbin clockwise or counterclockwise and it can make a difference. Also try a new needle, a bad needle is often the problem believe it or not.
