Question about Yamata FY2600
SOURCE: Singer-Inspiration 4220/4228
Send this machine back where it came from! machine. You have described a timing problem which you can not and should not need to do.
Change the needle first and test it to be sure the needle still hits on the hook. If it does,follow the above instructions. If it no longer hits then it's possible it is not as serious as I first thought.I'm not sure if the bobbin keeps coming out or the bobbin case(the plastic part the bobbin sits in) comes out.If it is just the bobbin, insert the bobbin in the case and pull on the thread. The bobbin should turn COUNTERCLOCKWISE. If it turns the other way, turn it upside down and try it again.
If it is the bobbincase,then Remove the needle plate and take the bobbin case completely out. On this machine there is a small lever which holds the bobbin case in position. Looking down on the bobbin case the lever is located at about 11 o'clock and has a small slot in it. It is also probably spring loaded which means it is not easy to turn without a small screwdriver. Insert the screwdriver in the slot and turn it to the left. Lift out the bobbin case and Carefully examine it for any nicks, scratches or rough spots. If you find any, they will need to be removed with an emery stick and or a sharpening stone. Buff with a very fine steel wool for total smoothness.
To replace the bobbin case use the screwdriver to open and hold the lever open while you insert the case back in. The straight part of the case will be on the right and you need to place the case so that the circular part rides on the slight grove in the hook.(The metal thing it sits on). Once you have it in place you can release the lever you've been holding open . It should fit over the edge of the bobbin case and not allow it to come out. Rethread the machine and turn it by hand a few times to see that it is working properly. Good luck!!!

The black bobbin case that the bobbin sites in is not supposed to move at all, on the right hand side of the bobbin case you will see two screws, if you slacken them off you can push the guide bar closer to the bobbin case leaving enough thread to pass through the gap.

The bobbins are generally interchangeable between singer models.
You have to watch out for the bobbin case though as this is the one specific to model families.
Hope this helps.

Make sure the bobbin case sets sort of on top and not under the ridge of the metal ring. There is a small latch on the upper left of the bobbin case. It is metal. rotate the latch to cover the bobbin case and this should stabilize the case without making it immobile

I am having this problem also; the thread catches in the **** in the bobbin. I am thinking maybe I am not threading the machine correctly--the bobbin area, not the top thread. I will try this & see if it fixes the problem. You may be doing the same as I am.
