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
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
take a tiny screw driver & gently unscrew the screws in the needle plate ,, make sure not to damage the screws & clean out the thread & any lint in that area & also the bobbin area because if the screws are the slightest bit damaged then when you sew & the fabric moves over them the burrs on the screws will pull the threads in the fabric & can damage the fabric
Sounds like you have to take off the throat plate and clean out threads under it. Sometime they ball up and prevent the needle from going down and catching the bobbin thread. You can't see themuntil you take off the plate. Follow the directions. It is easy.
I cleaned the machine good with canned air, oiled it. I took out the bobbin case and cleaned it good also. I then noticed the tension screw on the bobbin case was loose, tightened it and the problem was fixed.
