Try looking for a manual for your machine here.
If your model number isn't listed try looking for a similar model or the number nearest to your machine.
Usually, sewing machines of the same brand thread in the same way. Hope this helps!

Look though these threading and bobbin winding guides for a machine that closely resembles the one you are using - http://www.sewusa.com/Sewing_Machine_Threading_Diagrams.htm

I watched a 'You Tube' demo that showed ........if you loosen or tighten the very small screw at the base of the bobbin this gives you the correct tension & stops the looping under the fabric........I didn't even know this screw existed ! It is trial & era at first re the correct tension but you do get there.... the art is to do it in small mini stages.....like you hardly move it ! Thanks to 'You Tube' I can now get on and finish my drapes !

Remove the thread, the needle and the bobbin case. Run it full speed for 1 full minute. Replace needle, thread and bobbin case and try again.
