I had a bobbin breakdown yesterday. If there is one thing a sewer cannot stand, it's bobbin problems. The thread in the back gets all tangled and sometimes you have no idea what is going on until you've gone several inches. It's completely obnoxious and frustrating.
After doing some research, it seems like the front bobbin loaders (which is what I have) are much more difficult than the top loaders. You have to make sure the thread is going the correct direction before you place the bobbin in the machine. All sorts of things could go wrong and cause problems.
Singer has an excellent resource for troubleshooting and basic operating instructions, including how to properly load a bobbin.
