The presser foot or what ever foot your sewing with does not feed the
fabric,, the feed dogs in the needle plate are what moves the fabric
to be sewed, the feet only hold the fabric against feed dog so the
machine can use the needle to sew the fabric.
if the fabric is not moving then the feed dogs have to be checked
can you see the feed dogs in the needle plate area are the up or
do you have a manual for the machine?
a manual help to know where the feed dog lever is, I'm sending
you a link for a manual for the machine, so you can look for the feed
dog lever, if the feed dogs are up then there is something wrong
with the feed dogs & they need to be checked.
but if the feed dogs are down then look in the manual & see where
the feed dog lever is & put it in the up position & see if that brings
the feed dogs up to the sewing position, if the feed dogs do not
come up then the feed dogs need to be checked.

    I have the manuel. I tried cleaning under the bobbin, unscrued the plastic plate under the machine and cleaned. I put the plate back and now the lever to lower or raise the feed dogs is not working. How can I fix it?

Have a Singer 11910000A and the bobber thread bunches up and makes a mess in the feet when sewing

Is it really the bobbin thread that is globbing? Check closely. Usually it is the upper thread accumulating under the fabric.

If it is in fact the bobbin thread, then the bobbin case is not threaded correctly, the bobbin case tension needs adjustment, or it is broken and needs replacement. There are web sites and YouTube videos that show how to adjust the bobbin case tension.

QUICK FIXES: Remove all the thread from the machine. Clean the area around the feed dogs and bobbin area. Oil as instructed in the owner's manual using ONLY fresh, good quality sewing machine oil (only 1-2 drops each spot). Install a brand new needle insuring it is installed correctly. Avoid using fuzzy, old, or bargain bin thread. Rethread: Be sure you raise the presser foot BEFORE threading the upper thread so it will seat properly in the tension disk--and check to make sure you are threading the machine correctly. Check that the upper tension is set properly (the factory standard is usually the halfway point between the high & low number on the selection). Test on a scrap of the fabric you wish to sew. Adjust the upper tension--either tighten to pull the upper thread toward the top of the fabric, or loosen to pull more upper thread down.

When i try to use it it doesnt thread with the bottom thread and bunches up and breaks the top thread. i cant find this model online!!: please someone help! dont know if i threaded properly

Possible problem is the bobbin inserted the wrong way round. I'm not familiar with this model, but if you've checked the upper threading, and it's still bunching, make sure the bobbin thread feeds off the bobbin correctly (e.g. either to the right, or to the left, as it's inserted). Hope this helps.

Why does the top thread on my brother sewing machine bunche up on the bottom side of my material?

The routine answer is that the top tension isn't working correctly. There may be a bit of lint or thread caught between the tension discs. Try taking a length of thread about 3 feet long and feed it into the tension and pull it out again several times. Thread the machine with the presser foot up until ready to thread the needle. then lower the presser foot and check for tension. If OK thread the needle and begin sewing. If not, start over by pulling thread through the tension.Then repeat trial. If still not OK, send the machine in for service. Good luck.

I have a WHITE 3300 EMBROIDERY MACHINE and the thread bunches up at the bobbin site. I have tried a new needle, adjusted upper thread tension , changed bobbin threads and nothing helps, it keeps bunching...

Refer to your machine for cleaning the bobbin area.

You will need to clean this area often as lint and thread snips can build up can cause the bobbin feed to malfunction.

If this continues after you have cleaned the machine, the timing may need to be adjusted by a sewing machine tech.
