What size needle are you using?  Have you tried using a bobbin that you've wound?

Is it possible that you have some lint or a piece of thread caught in the bobbin area?  Be sure to check the height of your take-up roller, too.

When you're recording your design, are you standing at the front of the machine or the back?

Yes, the leaders can become stretched/distorted over time; and you will need to straighten them.  They can become soiled and may need to be replaced since they really can't be washed successfully.

If you have a thread that regularly pops out of the intermittent tensioner, try loosening the intermittent tension to see if that makes a difference.

Quilting Tips / Re: Quilting with Minky backing on a quilt

I don't change any settings when quilting those Minkee-type backings, and they do quilt up nicely.  I do like to load the fabric with the selveges parallel to the leaders, and I'm careful to not over tighten the tension on the rollers or sides.  Also, I always use a batting layer.
