Machine is binding up
New needle, right way around, and thread again from scratch, manual in hand. Make sure you're threading with the presser foot up. Raise the bobbin thread. Start each and every seam thus:
1. Place the work under the needle. Use the handwheel or needle up/down function to drop the needle into the fabric.
2. Drop the presser foot.
3. Hold the bobbin and top thread ends together and take about 3 stitches.
4. Drop the thread ends and sew normally. See also: http://www.picturetrail.com/sfx/album/view/22521551 last pair of photos.

The needle does not pick up the bobbin thread
There may be so many reasons due to which the needle does not pick up the bobbing thread like---
The upper thread could be tangled. Remove the thread commpletely from the machine. The correct size spool cap should be used for the size of the thread spool. Re-thread the machine. Remove the bobbin and make sure the bobbin is threaded properly in the shuttle race. Remove any loose threads or lint in the shuttle race. You could be holding the needle thread too tight. Hold the thread lightly to keep the end from going down into the shuttle. The needle could be thread incorrectly. Thread the needle eye from the front to the back. The needle could be bent or improperly inserted. Install a new needle with the flat side of the needle facing the back.
