SOURCE: Bottom thread will not catch
Unplug the machine and remove the needle plate so that the bobbin case if fully exposed. Lift out the bobbin case and the cup that it sets in will be visible. Locate the "hook" on this cup. It is a finger with a sharp point at the upper edge of the cup. The hook is what grabs the thread from the needle while sewing.
If the hook catches the thread from the needle, put everything back together and try threading again.

It could be that there is a loose piece of thread, or some fluff which is obstructing the tension gauge. Try blowing around the theading area (or even run the hoover pipe near it to see if you can **** it out). I cleared mine by folding a piece of non fluffy material and rubbing gently between the tension dial and machine.

SOURCE: bobbin thread won't catch
I've just had this exact problem with my model 2037. The problem, according to 3 shops I've taken mine to, is that the shuttle hook (the metal piece that the bobbin sits in) is broken and needs replaced. Problem is, the piece is next to impossible to find.

You should use some klnd of stabilizer under your hoop. I use the paper kind which is thin or there is a heavier tear away stabilizer. I have used all cotton thread for embroidery or you can use rayon. There is a finer thread called bobbin thread for the bobbin but I gernerally use the same as on the top so it will be the same. Are you using an embroidery needle? .As for your thread getting wound around the bobbin the only thibng I can think of is tht it is threaded incorrectly. if it isn't the lack of a stabilizer. I hope this helps but I think it the the lack of stabilizer that is causingyour problems. The needle is going in and our of the same hole during embroidery and is getting stuck on your bobbin. Let me know if this helps! Suz

SOURCE: Not picking up the Bobbin thread
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.
