Question about Sewing Machines
I have just recieved this machine and when i started it was working fine, then i had to make a new bobbin for the bottom compartment, took it out threaded it clockwise and put it back in correctly. The Needle looks like its to short to catch the thread, and the thread just doesnt move. I dont know what to do?

SOURCE: Bottom thread will not catch
Unplug the machine and remove the needle plate so that the bobbin case if fully exposed. Lift out the bobbin case and the cup that it sets in will be visible. Locate the "hook" on this cup. It is a finger with a sharp point at the upper edge of the cup. The hook is what grabs the thread from the needle while sewing.
If the hook catches the thread from the needle, put everything back together and try threading again.

Your timing has been messed up by breaking the needle. When the needle hit the bobbin race, it shoved the needle bar up and now the needle is not in the correct position to catch the bobbin thread when the race rotates. The needle has a little dip in the back, called the scarf. When you take the neddle plate off and watch it move, you should see the little hook pass through the scarf. That's how it makes the locking stitch and picks up the bobbin thread. Unfortunately, you will need to take this in to a dealer or service place to have them adjust the needle bar height. It's not a complicated task so see if they can check it while you wait. It may be more difficult to fix, like retiming the machine. But it doesn't sound like you've done any major damage to the mechanism.

Remove the needle plate and the bobbin case.
Ensure that the needle is inserted all the way up into the needle clamp.
Set the machine for straight stitch, center needle position.
Slowly turn the handwheel in the normal sewing direction and observe the following hook timing setting:
When the needle reaches it's lowest point and travels up 3.5mm, the point of the hook should be directly behind the needle, or at least within 1 or 2mm.
Another view is as the hook passes the needle, it should pass the needle slightly above the eye of the needle.
If the timing looks good, use some alcohol on a bit of cloth to clean the hook, careful around the tip of the hook as it is very sharp.
If the hook timing is off, you will need to take it to a knowledgeable service person as there are several possible solutions and several other related adjustments which will need to be made.
