Have a baby lock quest blq2 and I was doing just fine and when I hit the reverse the needle got stuck, and thread jammed. Cleaned up the area and now the needle hits metal and doesn't even pull up the bobbin . Turned the machine off and on, unplugged it, redid the bobbin and it still gets stuck

Time to take it in and have the repair tech service & clean upper tension assembly. When you clip/ change threads be sure not to pull the thread back out of tension assembly. Snip thread at spool, raise foot to release tension and then pull the short thread out from the needle. The Automatic tension is very delicate and pulling thread out backwards can cause thread/lint build up and problems like your having. Sal the Sewing Gal
Normally when you have a jam with material the machine with lock up to prevent further damage. Once the jam is removed "completely" the machine will unlock on its own. But, on occasions it will not. Unplug the machine from the power & any hardware you have attached to it such as a computer. Allow the machine to "rest" for several hours. This allows the lock up to clear from the memory & the machine should preform when you return it to the power. Also remove the bed plates around the needle area & check carefully for leftover material, thread, dust, bent parts & replace the needle. Good luck.
Have you hit a hoop while sewing? Is the needle jammed up and will not come down or down and will not go up? You need to make sure that you have no thread in the bobbin area. Even a tiny little piece will lock it up. Have you kept it oiled ? There are several places that need oiling. Bobbin area and needle bars are the two main ones. Make sure your needles are all the way up
sometimes the screws will vibrate loose on the needle bar .
You have your bobbin inserted into the machine spinning in the wrong direction. take the bobbin out and flip it over and wind around needle plate guide and cut. Look at the little pictogram on the plastic part of the machines throat plate. It shows which direction the thread should spin off the spool when you drop the top loading bobbin into the bobbin case.
The top thread is looping right? This particular machine loves a well oiled hook system, and it needs to be vacuumed out regularly. Compressed air is not good on this machine, actually it is not good on any machine if the covers are on. So check for thread trapped inside the hook system by flooding with oil and oscillating the machine back and forth for a few minutes.
Two other possibles: something is snagging the top thread like thread trapped inside the hook system or a little burr on the stitch plate. Moving faster means the fabric tractors harder, so any burrs will be mre noticeable.
first change the needle rethread the machine top & bobbin use every thread guide clean under the needle plate & in the bobbin area for lint make sure the bobbin is not warped or damaged make sure the bobbin is not to full make sure the bobbin is inserted correctly & turned correctly in the bobbin case make sure there are not any burrs on the needle plate make sure there are not any burrs on the bobbin case
have you tried a new needle
Correct needle insertion is mandatory for proper use of your sewing machine.
Raise the needle bar to the highest point, then loosen the needle clamp screw to remove the old needle.
Place the new needle in the needle clamp with the flat side of the needle facing the back, (round needle, the groove in the needle should face away from the shaft).
Push the needle all the way up as far as it will go. Then tighten the needle clamp screw. check the bobbin to make sure it's not damaged rethread the machine top & bobbin clean under the needle plate & in the bobbin area for lint or threads also make sure the top thread doesn't come off the thread take up lever
