Question about Computers & Internet
The bobbin constantly jams and the thread tension doesn't adjust correctly.
The thread is tangling in the bobbin area either because the machine has some lint in the bobbin area or under the feeddog plate. It could also be having a tension problem, but first clip all of the threads loose and pull them out. Then use a small sewing machine brush to clean out all loose thread and lint. If the feed dog plate will not just lift up, you may have to take out a screw. A can of air like is used on electronic equipment will help to blast out the lint your brush can't get. The machine also needs periodic oiling. Check your owner's manual for oiling points.

Are you helping feed the fabric through? Even with the "auto feed" on most household sewing machines, you need to pull the fabric through it doesn't really feed through itself.
Or you could have the tension improperly set on the thread, or the bobbin could be improperly threaded. I've had sewing machines jam up when too much thread "lint" gets caught up around the bobbin mechanism too and it needs to be cleaned out to run correctly again.
Such bunching can also happen if you're running too heavy of a fabric through and there just isn't enough clearance under the foot for it to move easily.
Hope that helps..........
