Hi, I have a new sewing machine, I've only used it for a few weeks and its jamming. The top thread wasnt feeding down, so piling up, and the bobbin thread (which is nearly finished) feels very tight in the bobbin case. Any ideas what the problem is before I start undoing bits? Thanks.

If you have a Janome, brother, or any other plastic body machine, you may skip oiling the machine step, do the internal cleaning, taking threads out with a small brush, if possible remove the feeder dog and bobbin case and clean thoroughly and then screw things up again.
After all this cleaning, try the machine on scrap fabric, and I am sure your machine would be happy to work again. I hope it helps.
In case you still feel the trouble, check if the thread in bobbin is smoothly filled and there are no tangles. Clear that up too.
