I have changed thread in my bobbin and am trying to insert

Customer Question

I have changed thread in my bobbin and am trying to insert it into the machine. Every time I think I have it right it balls up with thread. What am I doing wrong? It has been over 10 years since I have sewed. MY machine is a Pfaff 2144.
