I had the same problem straight out of the box. I decided to buy a new machine and came across the 4166. It had more than enough functions and seemed to run smoothly. I too have problems with the bobbin not threading so I took it back into the store thinking I was doing something wrong. The saleswoman had the same problem. I was going to exchange it for another but before leaving I wanted to check to see if it worked. Again, same problem so I left without a machine. I spoke to the owner only to be told that 30% Singer machines are lemons and have to be returned for servicing because they don't work from the start. This is a waste of money and time.
The only suggestion I can offer is to either forget about the machine or take it into be serviced.

Make sure you're using a polyester thread (I use maxilock serger thread) then a stretch needle, and hold the tails of your thread until you get started into the seam so the fabric cannot push down into the opening on the throat plate.
Also, a small zigzag stitch (about 1.8 - 2.0 wide) is good to use on lycra as that will allow the fabric to stretch after the garment is made.
This is stuff I've used with my 6500P and other previous Janome machines in making Ice Skating outfits.

A common problem is if needle is in backwards. The small groove side should be toward the operator. As the needle starts back up after going clear down, a small loop should form on the side of the needle away from teh operator. The shuttle has a point that goes through this loop to snag the upper thread and carry it over the top of the bobbin. Also verify that needle is propely seated.
If an accident has happened with the machine that MIGHT have disturbed the timing, then that could be the cause and one would have to take it for repair.
Slowly watch for the loop, with covers off, and manually cycle to watch for the operation I have described.

Hi, if your sewing machine thread is not properly threaded, the bobbin thread won't be pulled up into the fabric the way it needs to be. Occasionally the upper thread can catch on a moving part or get stuck, which impedes the easy flow of thread through the needle, creating a tangle. Unthreading your machine completely and rethreading it will correct this issue.
The bobbin must be placed properly into the bobbin case or it can unwind the wrong way. When this incorrect unwinding occurs, the bobbin's thread doesn't interact correctly with the upper thread. The knots it needs to make to form the stitches aren't made and the thread, instead of making knots, makes a giant, tangled mess underneath your sewing project. To make sure this doesn't happen, or to correct the problem if it does happen, place the bobbin in the case so that the thread unwinds in a counter-clockwise motion, with the thread being pulled from the left side of the bobbin to the right.
Changing your needle can also corrects this issue.
