Question about Husqvarna Viking 1
Thread in the bobbin area can be difficult to get out. Even though you do not see any there is thread wrapped around under the hook area. Shine a flashlight in there and look carefully. Often times you will see a piece of thread. Use tweezers to get it out, pull slowly while turning the wheel by hand. If you notice the thread not coming out, turn the wheel in the opposite direction.
Removing parts in the bobbin area will allow you to get at any thread that is hung up in there. The smallest of pieces can create havoc in there as you may find out. Before removing parts make sure you have a manual in case you forget how to put them back. Remove one piece at time and check for thread right after. No need to remove more than you have to.

When it feels like the needle is jammed, open the bobbin cover and release the two black retaining levers, one on either side of the bobbin case. The hook cover that is visible will be released. If the machine turns by hand smoothly, you may have a piece of the broken needle, or just a piece of thread stuck behind the hook or hook cover causing the bind. This problem will sometime make you swear that the needle is stuck in something because it will usually bind while the needle is down in the fabric.

SOURCE: Free Motion Sewing - Jams
I don't have a solution, but wanted to remind users of this machine that it does not do the proper free motion action until you reach a certain speed. This information is on page 26 of my manual (older machine, so page no. might have changed with newer manuals). You can stitch at the lower speeds, but it does not "hover" and allow you to move the project swiftly and smoothly.
If you can sew regular sewing without thread/bobbin issues, then it is probably something to do with how you have set/threaded/used the free motion to cause the stoppage. Make sure you have a sharp (i.e. new) needle of the correct size for your thread, that the bobbin thread is the same weight thread as the top thread. Turn on the Needle Down button. There is a Free Motion setting in the Set menu, but I have no idea what it does. I turn it on anyway, just in case! What foot are you using? If you don't have one of the free motion feet (there are quite a few to choose from!) use the embroidery foot (small clear plastic one).

Turned out I am an idiot and had my needle in backwards, leading to the tangling. No idea why the needle plate would not unscrew, but my superhero husband got it off!

I have changed stabalizers and the type of bobbin thread i am using (invisible poly) and it seemd to have solved the problem. Note: wind invisible thread very slowly and carefully it is like fishing line

re insert the needle, maybe you did not put the needle up as far as it is to go. Make sure the flat side of the needle is to the back of the machine. Without any thread in the machine hand turn the wheel and look to see if the hook of your bobbin would/could catch the thread (to see if timing is right)
then thread the machine and hand turn the wheel and see what it is doing.
Your timing might be off, but I do not think that is likely. Though it is possible that when the needle fell out, it hit something hard, broke, and pushed the machine out of timing. then you need to bring it in.
