hi Sue. Why does my bobbin thread keep bunching up?
Check Your Tension Settings. Looping underneath the fabric usually occurs when there is not enough tension in the needle thread to pull the bobbin thread. Sometimes thread bunching can be caused by something as simple as the tension dial being inadvertently turned. Sewing Machine Thread Bunching Up Here Why .
if you go to this link a little pop up will come up just close this down.
or try this one.
try changing the needle rethread the machine top & bobbin make sure the bobbin is inserted correctly in the bobbin case make sure the top thread is not coming off the thread take up lever make sure the bobbin is wound correctly if these suggestions don't work, I suggest that you take the machine to a sewing machine shop to have it checked
A sewing machine operator can often help themselves when their machine does not operate properly. Here are some simple instructions, which if properly used can save time and mechanics service calls.

It is the top threading that is giving you the problem not the bobbin thread. Try this, totally rethread, the machine. A new needle will not hurt either. Now with the presser foot up, pull on the top thread, it should feed smoothly, now lower the presser foot, pull the thread again, it should barely move. This usually will seat the thread in the tension discs. Good luck and Merry Christmas
It sounds like you don't have any tension on the thread when winding the bobbin. Make sure that you are running the thread through the tension disc on the top of the machine before going to the bobbin winder.
I am not sure about this particular machine but in most machines there will be a nob on the front loose low numbers like 0 1 -2 work well on number 3. If the nob is not on the front check and see if it is on the side.
