Re: How do I get the bobbin to thread after I put it back...
Do you have the bobbin holder threaded right? You have to put the bobbin into the holder and follow the thread path, then pull it up to the top and turn the needle by hand until the thread picks up the bobbin thread. then pull both threads up and to the back then slide your bobbin plate back into the machine and you are ready to sew. Hopes this helps. wish I could draw you a picture.

make sure tat there about 6" of bobbin thread hanging out after you put the bobbin back in the bobbin holder
increase the needle thread tension up more thread tension should be a slight drag as you pull the thread out to thread the needle
While I know it can only go in 1 of two ways, maybe the problem isn't in how the bobbin is in, maybe it is the route of the thread.
My assumption is you don't seem to pick up the bobbin thread and it bunches. If so the carefully follow the thread to needle you may have by passed the place you put that thread so it maintains tension.
Check that carefully, sometimes that gets overlooked.
check to make sure that the needle was put into the needle holder correctly all the way up into the needle holder--flat side of the needle to the back side of the machine if the machine still doesn't up the bobbin thread then it's possible that when the needle broke that it caused the machine to go out of time which means it has to be retime at a sewing machine shop
Have you got the needle in the right way and is it put in all the way up the holder? Some needles are longer than others and this can also cause that problem. The bobbin thread should double back on itself coming out of the holder.
I recently fixed my wife maching with the same problem. I found that the screw had come loose that holds the linkage together that rotates the bobbin holder. I was fortunate enough to notice the screw while looking at the machine. To replace it requires taking both the front and back covers off of the frame since the bobbin holder linkage is in the rear behind the needle area. Be careful to insure that the plastic toothed "rail" that runs the bobbin holder is positioned properly or it may break off a tooth. Once I replaced the screw and put the machine back together, it picked up the thread with no problem.
Hope this helps.
