When you put in the bobbin case, be sure to press it in firmly until you hear it click into place. If you can't press very firmly, or are afraid of hurting your machine, simply lift the latch from the bobbin case, holding it open while you firmly insert the case into the machine. Then release the latch. You should be good to go. Hope this helps!

What part of the bobbin case is breaking? I've never seen one break before.
Now if the bobbin case is rotating slightly in the machine and the needle is punching holes in it, there is a very simple way to fix this problem.
Set the bobbin case into the hook assembly as if reassembling the machine. There is a metal finger that it fits under on the left rear section of the case. If you place your index finger in the case where the bobbin fits and lift the back edge up against that metal finger, it should only come up about 0.8-1mm. If it raises up 2-3mm, this is the problem and the finger can be mechanically reformed to set closer to the bobbin case. Mechanical reforming is also known as bending. Push it down to the case and when you release pressure it should be close enough. This will keep the case from lifting so that it can't rotate during operation.
You may also be able to use a craft knife to remove all of the rough edges caused by the needle strikes on the bobbin case. I often do this for my customers so that we can be sure that a new case won't be damaged. When the customer brings it back for an annual service, I replace the bobbin case at that time.

I had this problem when I first bought my machine. I took it in and they told me it was a recall problem. All the machines were having the same problem. They fixed it and I have not had the problem since. I bought mine at a Joanne fabrics. Hope this helps.

Take off the needle plate. There is a bracket near the front right area of the bobbin case. It is the position bracket that supports the case. First smooth the case of any rough edges, the put it in place and loosen the screw of the position bracket and align it in an area that will keep the case from spinning. There should be about 0.5mm of distance available when you use your finger and push the case from left to right, between the case and the bracket. Remember that the thread flows through this area, the case is held in place by the bracket but not tightly.
