Thank you all for your response. I have oiled it and cleaned it up and ran it without thread with bobbin in place at slow speed then fast speed. I will have to try tighting up my quilt or loosen it. It is just a practice quilt to learn on anyways. But as for thread balling up in bobbin case it does do it when it locks up. It makes a loud horrible noise when it does it. It sews fine fir a bit then all of a sudden it just jams. I have been to baileys site but i guess i should call them if i do not get it figured out. I changed the thread and the stitches where loose so i got the tension good on the different thread. I do have another quilt machine i can try also that i got on a really good deal. It is a singer industrial from the 80's. Thanks again for all the input.

So it ran fine without thread? What type and brand of thread are you using? Are you using a thread net on the cone? The problem may be coming from how the thread is coming off the cone. Also, is the bobbin thread wound tightly and evenly?

Yea it ran fine without thread not sure what brand thread it is i got it with the machine. No i do not have a net on my cone will have to try that too. The bobbin seems to be tight and even thread is not loose on it.

Make sure you have the correct bobbin. I put my regular sewing machine bobbin in once. Took me forever to figure it out.
Also check that you are threading the bobbin in right.

Yea i am using the bobbins that i got with it and i learned along time ago to pay attention to which way my thread comes off the bobbin. Not sure what size bobbins came with it or if they are correct so i guess i better double check on that too.

img_1226.jpgThis what it looks like underneath when it jams. I have to take the whole bobbin casing out to unjam it. I have tightened my quilt to where it sounds like a drum and i have had it loose to where i can push up with my finger and grab my finger.

You should try calling bailey's , they are very helpful.
There website has some videos on the basics of the machine. Maybe they can help.

You have lint in the back of the bobbin area, have you taken the whole bobbin area apart and cleaned it?

Definitely call Bailey about it.

Also recently had the misfortune of my bobbin case (for HQ16) wearing out. (I probably dropped it once too many times.) Ugh. That threw my quilting off until I figured it out and ordered a new one. I cannot remember whether it caused thread nests in the bobbin area.

You will get through this.
