Hello Dleesego,
It sounds to me like your machine needs to be cleaned by a authorized service tech.. One of the components that the thread travels has probably gotten fouled with thread and isn't rolling freely causing your thread to "glob" up. If you are handy, you may be able to find (through the manufacturer's support site) the schematics for it, and use those to diagnose the most likely point of the hang up.
Good luck.

How to time a singer 758 sewing machine? The needle is not picking up the bobbin tread.

remove all the plates around the needle and bobbin cover
slowly turn the machine until the needle is right at the bottom
not continue turning until the needle just starts to come back up
At this point the hook of the bobbin case should be just at or close to the needle eye
The bobbin position cannot be altered as the needle is the adjustment
That is done by loosening of the clamp in the needle bar and moving the needle crank up or down to get the correct position and then re-clamping the screw
Note here--make sure that you have the correct needle length in the machine as needle lengths do vary for different applications .
search -- needle and hook timing for singer sewing machines-- to get illustrations on how to do it

Manual for the wimsew thread not picking up around the bobbin

Try installing a brand new needle. If it is still not picking up the bobbin thread, then the needle/hook timing make be off. Take it for service.

How do I wind the bobbin?

There are several ways. On most machines you put the empty bobbin on the spine over the bulk of the machine on the right hand side. Twist some threads around the bobbin to get started, then put the thread through the thread loop above the shuttle area on your left side. That keeps the tread tension right. There is a gear the clicks into the bobbin. You push that closed. You will have to release the clutch by turning the large wheel on your right hand side. Not hard to find and it usually is hand size. It is the one that goes around and around when you are sewing. Grasp it firmly and turn the top toward you. This will prevent the needle from going up and down when the thread is pulled onto the bobbin. Don't forget to tighten the large "wheel" when you are done.

If the thread is pulling through the top of the fabric slacken off the top tension to about 4 and tighten the bobbin tension slightly by turning the screw on the bobbin case about a quarter of a turn clockwise and test.

Bottom tread keeps jamming and getting all knoted up. The display gives me an E6 error code. what can i do

try re-threading your machine. usually when the machine is jammed at the bobbin or when the needle gets stuck to the bobbin thread, it means that there is an error with the thread. make sure that the thread isn't pulled through the wrong side of the needle, wrapped the wrong way around the wheels on the top, and that the bobbin is threaded correctly. if this doesn't work, you may want to contact their hotline.

I am getting bird nests under my embroidery hoop. It seems that there is an issue with my the bobbin because all the tread in the bird nest is not the bobbin thread. It has done it three times in a row and...

Anytime I have had it happen it was because my machine wasn't properly threaded. The first place you run the thread through it has to click into place in two places. If it misses one it will birdnest.

You should hold the end of the thread coming through the needle until the thread has grasped the bobbin thread.

Needle picks up bobbin thread but then thread gets stuck

I had exactly the same problem on the exact same model 3205FA. I'm not an expert, but have a little experience on solving my wife and daughter's sewing machine mechanical problems. I would suggest the following: A. Page 6 of the owners manual see item # be precise it is 1 1/2 times around. B. Page 7 at the bottom, Make sure the bobbin tension spring is set so that there is tension. When holding the tread the bobbin shouldn't unroll. If jiggled about 2-3 inches the bobbin should release about 1/3 of that distance. C. Page 8 at the bottom, ill. # 2. There are two flange holders and screws that hold the bobbin case in position located at about 5 and 7 o'clock. Make sure both screws are tight. This is important. D. Make sure the thread is treaded through the upper tension adjustment properly. See page 9 # Illustration C. Terrible illustration. Keep the dial generally in the green range. E. Put in a new needle, the needles that come with the machine are just short of terrible. Wouldn't hurt to buy good top quality needles for the machine.
