Top tension about 4 or 5, make sure the presser foot is up when you theread the machine, make sure you can just pull the bobbin thread through with some slight resistence, if it is too tight slacken the screw on the bobbin case a quarter of a turn at a time anti clockwise.

Try pushing the reset button underneath the machine. Mine does that too. I had it repaired a few months ago...apparently it needs a circuit board that is no longer available.

More than likely you have a broken vertical shaft gear.
When you turn the handwheel you should see the sewing hook moving under the bobbin case.
If not, take it to a sewing repair person and it should cost somewhere around $100 to repair.

Make sure your presser foot is tight down. If the needle is going from side to side, it's doing it's job. If the stitches are coming out straight, the material is probably slipping back and forth to center area. The presser will eliminate this.
