Top tension back to 4 and leave the bobbin tension as is.
Make sure you have a new needle for the type of fabric being sewn installed with the flat side to the back of the machine. A bent needle can sometimes go unnoticed.
Always thread the machine with the presser foot up and this will give proper tension to the stitch.
Check the manual to be sure you are threading correctly (always with the presser foot up) and that the bobbin thread is feeding in the correct direction from the bobbin spool and through the guides.
Take hold of the thread at the needle as you lower and raise the needle to pull up the bobbin thread. Take both thread ends under the presser foot and to the back of the machine.

I have been dealing with the exact same problem for 2 hours and no answers!! I have just discovered that if you move the stitch width finger to R instead of N, your threader will work!! Hope this helps :)
