Re: threading and putting the bobbin back in the machine
Most machines have a bobbin case, that removes to place the bobbin inside and then the case goes back into the machiens. However some bobbins just load the bobbin flat from the top. The best place to start is with your machine's manual. If you don't have the machine manual, contact your machine's manufacturer or google "sewing machine manuals" as there are several vendors who sell replacement manuals. One of them is SewUSA.com and they have free threading diagrams on the site,maybe that would help you get started.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.

The bobbin is a little metal wheel that is usually housed under a plate where the upper needle darts down into. Slide the plate aside and fish the bobbin out. Put the bobbin up on the upper right hand side of the sewing machine and connect thread from the full spool of thread to the bobbin and then when you push the pedal down, (if you have arranged it right), your machine will automatically fill the bobbin with thread and automatically shut off when it is full. Then you have to leave a bit of thread hanging out when you put the full bobbin back down into its hiding space. Of course, you can always fill the bobbin by hand too. When you put it back in its housing, some thread has to be hanging out as the needle will drop down, grab it and the two threads (the top one from the needle, and the bottom one from the bobbin) work together.
Machines work differently but the is the main idea behind most of them. I hope that helps.
Do you have the bobbin holder threaded right? You have to put the bobbin into the holder and follow the thread path, then pull it up to the top and turn the needle by hand until the thread picks up the bobbin thread. then pull both threads up and to the back then slide your bobbin plate back into the machine and you are ready to sew. Hopes this helps. wish I could draw you a picture.
Remove the Bobbin carrier. Place the bobbin in the carrier so the thread dispenses in a counterclockwise direction. Pull about 8" of thread free. Now, pull the thread through the metal brackets (tension) and place the assembly back in the sewing machine. Before you put it back, now is a good time to put a drop of oil on the race track.
Well you may please follow the steps below - 1. Remove the bobbin from the sewing machine. Note: whether you have a drop-in, front or side-loading bobbin on your sewing machine. A drop in bobbin will load from the top, may be via a removable bobbin case cover near the machine-fed dogs. A side or front loading bobbin needs to be loaded into a removable bobbin case under the machine. 2. Choose the right size bobbin for the sewing machine. 3. Wind thread onto your bobbin. Your sewing machine should have a standard thread spool to hold the thread and a short, squat post wide enough for a bobbin. 4. Put the thread and empty bobbin into position on your sewing machine. Wrap the thread around the bobbin to start it. On most machines, disengage the needle by turning the smaller hand-wheel on the machine toward you. Push the bobbin post into position, securing the bobbin into place. Press gently down. Thread should begin to wind neatly onto your bobbin. 5. Break the thread, push the bobbin post back into an inactive position and remove the bobbin. Tighten the hand-wheel. Thread your sewing machine again if necessary before loading the bobbin. 6. Remove the bobbin case cover and put the bobbin into position. The thread should slide through a catch on the bobbin case and up through the cover. 7. Access the bobbin case for a front or side mount bobbin. Lift the catch and remove the removable bobbin holder. Put the bobbin into the holder and run the thread through the holder, bringing it to the front. Lift the catch and slide the bobbin holder back into the case. Hold your needle thread gently forward with your left hand and turn the hand-wheel. The needle thread will pass down into the machine and catch a loop of the bobbin thread. Pull this loop up and slide both threads to the back before beginning to sew. Good Luck!!
put the bobbin in its case then pull some thread out and pass it thru the bobbin case slot and under the tension spring .. put the bobbin and case over the shaft that is in the main unit .. the open side of the case goes in first .. make sure the bobbin doesnt fall out .. rotate the bobbin case until its finger lines up with the notch in the main case .. the bobbin case should latch in place on the shaft notch .. place the top thread under and to the back of the pressure foot then turn the machine one turn .. that will loop the top thread around the bottom (bobbin) thread ... now use a card or screwdriver to push both threads from under the pressure foot toward the back of the machine ..
take out the bobbin, pull some thread from it. is it coming smooth without effort? if yes, keep some thread outside and put back the bobbin and try again. if thread is not coming out smooth, then check if something is stuck in the bobbin.
The machine is relatively simple to thread. This is what I do and I've had no threading problems.
1. Put thread spool on the spool pin and put spool guard over spool pin to hold spool onto pin.
2. Take thread and put it under the bent tab by the circle tensioner. bring the thread around the right side of the circle tensioner and bring around the front of the circle tensioner thing back to the top hook on the far left side of the machine.
3. Take the thread around the backside of the top hook think until it threads through the flat piece on the left side of it.
4. Bring the thread down through the first (right side) channel and under the plastic piece to the second (left side) channel.
5. Bring the thread up the second channel and around the moving thread holder and past it's flat metal piece to hold it.
6. Tuck the thread around the small wire thread holder below the needle screw. This may take a few passes to catch it.
7. Thread the needle from the front and run the thread between the teeth of the presser foot.
8. Put a bobbin in the bobbin case so that the thread pulls off the bobbin from the left side of the bobbin if you look at it from above.
9. There is a small channel in the bobbin case that is covered by the bobbin tension flat piece. Pull the bobbin thread through this channel and into the empty space where the needle thread will catch.
10. Place the bobbin case into the machine with the little set bobbin arm pointed to the sky so that it fits into the machine without wiggling to the right or the left.
11. Turn the, uhhh brain fart, the hand wheel until the needle comes back up with the bobbin thread hooked over the needle thread. Take a narrow thing, like scissors or a seam ripper and pull both threads until the bobbin thread comes up.
Now your machine is threaded. Use these directions with the pictures in the book to get this machine threaded.
