Thread is knotting up on bottom of fabric causing it to stop
1.check the needle & see if it's bent--if so replace

4.needle is not all way up in holder
on my mechanical sewing machine sometimes the threads come off the take up lever, that causes the thread to bunch up under something I'm working on

Neither the needle up/down or the LED for the stitch selector will work if the bobbin winding pin/holder is pushed to the right (meaning pushed into the winding position). If you accidentally left the winding pin/holder pushed over, you will lose the functions of both the LEAD and the needle up/down button! (Neither of these functions can work while in bobbin winding mode!)

LED that illuminates the stitch selection bar quit
Check your bobbin spindle. If engaged (pushed toward the right) LED will not light. When the clutch knob is pulled out, when you wind a bobbin, the up & down needle will not move. So you must push the clutch knob in again to let the up & down needle go up and down. The clutch knob on my machine is in the large hand wheel upper right side of my machine.

I have a newish 2nd
Have you got the thread through the take up lever correctly? If its not threaded this will cause the needle thread to be pulled backwards. Just recheck all the threading paths from spool to needle have been done correctly.
