SOURCE: bobbin thread jam
You can remove the thread jam by moving the hand wheel back and forth. Remove the bobbin case and bobbin.Unthread and remove the needle.Rock the handwheel back and forth. Don't be rough but you will need to exert a little pressure to get this thread to come out. What you are doing is cutting the thread which is locked inside the hook race.

I had the same problem where the thread was getting all bunched up on the underside. I took everything out and followed the manual concerning threading, then manually moved my right wheel to see if it would get bunched up. It took awhile, but I finally got it sew correctly again. I;m still not sure what was wrong with it. I have a singer 7470.

it had nothing to do with the shuttle, it is the upper thread is not in the tensioner. lift the presser foot up and thread the machine even if you have to hold the thread on the top and pull on the bottom to make it go in the tensioner it will help, if a machine loops on the bottom it is the upper tension if it loops on the top it is the lower tension

Refer to your machine for cleaning the bobbin area.
You will need to clean this area often as lint and thread snips can build up can cause the bobbin feed to malfunction.
If this continues after you have cleaned the machine, the timing may need to be adjusted by a sewing machine tech.

unscrew the black plate that holds in the bobbin case and move it over to the left just a little bit, but make sure there is still clearance between the lower right corner of the case and the plate. The case should be able to wiggle a little, but not so loose it can pop out..
