Specifically: After a variable number of stitches, it stops (motor seems to be straining). This occurs on both hand and electric power. If I hand-turn it backward from there it doesn't stick, but if I electric backward it stays stuck. Looking at the bobbin at time of sticking, there's a few threads back and forth over the top of the spool.
