Be sure to RAISE the presser foot BEFORE threading the upper thread. (Remove the upper thread and rethread from the beginning.) Upper thread malfunctions commonly occur if it is not threaded correctly or the thread is not seated in the tension disk properly.
Install a brand new needle if you haven't already done so.

Check to see if the lower thread be tangled. Also, the bobbin could be threaded improperly in the shuttle hook. Rethread the bobbin in the shuttle hook.
How to detangle a thread---
When a machine stops operation due to tangled thread, do not turn the pulley by force. If the pulley is turned by force then, lower thread might not be picked up correctly and stitches might not be formed correctly.
If threads get tangled, remove a needle plate and cut the tangled threads by scissors or cutter.
