SOURCE: Not picking up the Bobbin thread
I cleaned the machine good with canned air, oiled it. I took out the bobbin case and cleaned it good also. I then noticed the tension screw on the bobbin case was loose, tightened it and the problem was fixed.

Also note that using a red band Singer needle will cause this exact symptom. The Singer needle is about 1.5 mm too long for use in any other machine. Ensure that you're using a standard needle. (Schmetz and Klasse are good examples.)
Your machine may also be out of time, which would require professional repair.

SOURCE: bobbin threading
hi! well! everything is gonna be fine,make sure the thread was wine on clockwise rotation as shown on figures if this similar to your bobbins anyway this is just a sample how to set up bobbinsthe thread is inserted on slot of bobbins case to acquire a tension tread. then hold bobbins on spindle while the needle of machine is on higher position.as shown on figuresthen inset this on shuttle hook case as shown on figures.then after bobbins was set up on shuttle case the thread of bobbins will hook up by the thread of needle by rotating the handwheel manually by your hand be sure the top thread was set up properly.just let me know if the procedure can help.

SOURCE: bobbin not taking up the thread
Thread the needle and pull out 6" of thread, hold the end of the thread, leaving the foot up, cycle the needle down and back up, you should have a loop of thread appearing under the foot and over the needle thread.
Slide something between the foot and the plate,from left to right this should pull the bottom thread up.

SOURCE: Bobbin won't come up!!!!!
This is going to sound silly, but take out the needle and check that the flat side of the needle is facing the way the instruction books says it's supposed to. Unless the flat side of the needle is facing where it's supposed to for your machine (usually--but not always--to the rear, away from you), the upper thread will not make a loop.
(Cost me $85.00 to figure this one out.)
