Question about Sewing Machines
Why is the bobbin case not moving right to allow the needle to go in and out freely. It breaks the needle when it tries to come back out.
SOURCE: Needle hits bobbin outer casing
Your hook/needle timing is off and it needs to be seen by a technician before you damage the hook. Some dealers can do a 24 hour repair for an additional charge.

SOURCE: bobbin case case keeps jamming
I am having somewhat the same problem with the exception that my needle did not break. I've cleaned and oil, but the bobbin case and projection positioned spring is not communicating to allow sewing to continue. The thread keeps jamming and the bobbin raises up the plate. So, what else am I to do?

Hi - it is possible that your needle is bent. Insert a new needle and check again - if you have the same problem, your timing is probably off. You could try buying a new bobbin case to see if that solves the problem. If you have had your machine tuned up within the last year or two, I would recommend a tune-up. If you know of a reputable sewing machine repair shop or dealer, the tune up should include correcting the timing and will extend the life of your machine.

Im not sure if this will help but thought I would pass it along. My Pfaff 6122 tells me to check bobbin for thread unrolling clockwise before you place it back in the machine. I had mine turned to un roll counter clockwise, this is wrong, the bobbin will fall out when you pull on the thread while you are holding it in your hand. You may just keep putting it in backwards. Hope this works for you. J.R.

There are two parts to the sew hook on that machine. The outer part has the hook point that grabs the thread off the needle. Then there is an inner part which has a post in the center of it that the bobbin case fits on to. The inner part should be held in place with an arm that has a bump on it. It keeps the inner part from spinning around. Sometimes this arm slips loose and a notch in the inner part of the hook assembly slips out from under the knob on the arm. If this is what is happening, you need to loosen the screw holding the arm in place and reposition the notch of the inner part of the hook back under the bump on the arm. There needs to be clearance between the notch and the bump for the thread to pass between the two. And the bump should be in line with the needle when it is in its lowest position.
If this doesn't solve the problem you need to take the machine in for repair.
