SOURCE: Bobbin Case
I'm having a similar problem today. I took out the bobbin case and when I went to put it back in, the whole system locks up. I've tired cleaning, changing needle taking the metal plate and piece that holds bobbin case out and put it all back in after cleaning. Nothing. My symptom is I can't get a complete stitch, the needle goes down, the whole deal acts like it will work and as soon as the arm of the bobbin case gets to 8 o' clock on the gears, It jams and won't hardly move. I cannot pull the bobbin case out easily after this. Perhaps there is someone out there that can help us!

This machine has a black plastic bobbin case. You drop the bobbin down into the case with the thread coming off in a clockwise direction. If you look close you will see a slot in the bobbin case where there is the metal pieces. The thread will slide into that and as you pull on it it will work its way through and come out on the other end of the metal. Lay the thread over top of the bobbin case and turn the handwheel to pick up the thread. (make sure you close the slide plate)

On the right of the black bobbin case there are two screws, you can slacken those screws off and move the bobbin case nearer to the guard leaving enough room for the thread to pass through, if the needle is hitting the bottom you may need to retime the machine.

SOURCE: My needle was hitting the
The most common reason for this is that the bobbin case is inserted the wrong way. There's a slot on the bobbin case. When it's inserted into the machine this should face up. The needle comes down through this slot and picks up the thread from the bobbin. If it's put in the wrong way the needle hits against the case and cannot get through to the thread on the bobbin.
The other possibility is that the new needle doesn't fit properly. It may not be pushed fully up into the machine. Sometimes this can happen if the needle is too thick for the machine or if the screw wasn't loosened enough to allow the needle up fully.
