I had the same problem and fixed it myself. Remove the portion of the housing that coincides with the bobbin winder. You will need to remove two screws to do this--one is just to the upper left of the bobbin winder itself, and one is hidden under the handle on the left side of the machine (lift the handle, and look on the machine on the left side.) It takes some coaxing to remove the housing, but it can be done--be gentle. If you need to, remove the housing on the left side of the machine that covers the needle assembly. This will make it a bit easier, but still, be gentle.)
After removing the housing, you will see a black metal piece with a elongated slot and a screw adjacent to the bobbin winder mechanism. Unscrew the screw a turn or two, and slide the piece to the other side. Tighten gently. Turn your machine on, and move your bobbin winder back and forth and watch the screen change from bobbin winding to the main straight stitch screen. Now, do a brief Dance of Joy. I hope this helps.

I can tell you its always on the upper shaft in the kenmore and it's on the right by the handwheel. The shaft has a wheel that rides through the sensor for shaft position sensing. It can actually go bad. If your machine zigzags ok, its not the shaft sensor becuse it knows where the shaft is to z.z. so it could be jsut that function on the board. Ive seen that.

truthfully I think their something wrong with the computer in the machine because
the bobbin locked up. sometimes when a sewing machine jams it can make
the machine jump time.
but the needle moved positions, some part of the machine is changed during the
jam up, even tho you reset it.
embroidery machine are expensive, my suggestion is to have the machine checked

Testimonial: "I've read about the timing being knocked off when the needle jams in the up/down position and other bobbin situations but didn't think it applied to left/center needle position change. Thank you....I will take it in for a thorough maintenance/reset."
First if the machine is hitting something and breaking the manual will not help with timing issue, Machine IN ANY CASE should never come in contact with anything except thread. If Possible use your phone camera or something to take video and send to me
