Question about Sewing Machines
I bought this machine used and it worked find until I decided to change the bobbin. Bobbin thread is not coming up. Upper thread wraps around the bobbin. I was told I had the wrong bobbin and was sold the right one but I still lose the bobbin thread.

The symptoms sound like it could be the incorrect bobbin. Even if it is tiny bit different, it may not work properly. If it is not an authentic bobbin for your machine, but rather a clone from another source, it may not be suitable. Some machines are very finicky.
If it is in fact the correct bobbin, then there may be a problem with how the thread is wound on the bobbin or how the bobbin has been inserted and threaded in the bobbin case. Be sure the thread is wound very smoothly on the bobbin and that the thread does not extend beyond the outer edge of the bobbin or that no loose threads are poking out from the bobbin. Also verify that it is inserted (and turns the right direction) in the bobbin case and that the bobbin case is threaded properly.
