First, make sure the bobbin-winding spindle (located on top of your machine) has been pushed back to the left for sewing. If it is not in the correct position, the needle will not go down and pick-up your bobbin thread. ... Make sure the presser foot is up when seating the thread through the upper tension

Try changing stitch pattern, length, and width to a typical straight stitch and see if problem goes away.

If problem clears then likely it needs a thorough clean and lube.The grease in the old cam style machines hardens and cam follow levers seize and strange actions occur.

Try dropping feed dogs and see if they move.

Does it still bring bottom thread to top after you rethread? No, then lower shaft drive issue or possibly timing belt.

That's not good is it. The reason would be a dead short probably in the motor windings, possibly a wired rubbed through to the chassis. Take it to a local Singer Service Centre for diagnostics and repair..

You Are Using the Wrong Bobbin If they are too small, they can bounce around in your bobbin case and cause a knocking or clunking noise. If they are too big, they will not spin freely in your bobbin case.

Incorrect tension. Too tight on the bobbin tension, or not enough tension on the top thread. All explained wonderfully here including how to correctly fix bobbin tension.

I believe the newer machine lights need to be replaced by a technician. You can check on getting some of those LED light strips that can be added to the machine instead.

If a gear is broken, the machine will have to be stripped and then the timing will need to be reset. Plus, that type of part is not available to the public. Also the part may not be obtainable. Take it to a singer service centre.
