Question about Sewing Machines
Something is wrong inside where the bobbin sits. when the needle goes down, a metal part slides in from the right side and almost breaks the needle off. it was working fine until today when I wound a new bobbin. A thread caught down in there and was difficult to remove. since then, I've had this problem. would rather not take it into a shop during the holidays because I have some projects planned. pls help.

slide open metal plate, there is a little white finger button with a target symbol on it just to the left. Slide this all the way left, leaving plate OPEN. If your top needle is threaded correctly, you should now be able to push the foot pedal to sew adn the bobbin will refill. make sure not to go past the outer white line on the bobbin case. good luck. the target button will go back to the original position when you slide the plate closed.

Yes, the hook timing is off. You need to either take it to a service repair center, or do the timing yourself. If you're mechanically inclined, go to youtube and look for a video by Nilsandkatrina about how to repair your sewing machine. He gives a very good example.
