What size bobbins, my machine is making a thumping noise, brought it to be looked at and they said the bobbin i was using was too small ( he s pretty sure)

What model sewing machine do you have? That will make it easier for us to recommend a bobbin.
ALSO, very important to use the small brush they give you with the sewing machine and clean out the bobbin area of all the dust that builds up. If you do not have the brush with the machine, you need a make up brush or a small think brush that looks like this below. Sewing machine parts are made to fit very closely together and even the smallest amount of dust and dirt build up can make the machine operate improperly and make that thumping noise you heard. Good luck Walter.

My bobbin holder keeps shifting out of position. I checked the area and noticed the tiny metal that holds the bobbin holder in place after turning has broken out. Can it be bought and replaced?

Possibly depending on your machine model and age. Search the internet for the make & model + parts. You can also probably take it to a repair shop.

Bobbin cover door is stuck on Bernina 930 Electronic, and won't open. Can you help me?

Tricky !!! I dont know why the door is stuck, but its possible that the spring-loaded plunger in the top of the bobbin door is stuck into the cover of the free-arm. If there is suficient gap between the top of the bobbin door and the free-arm cover, you could try sliding a thin piece of metal or a very small flat-bladed screwdriver between the two, in the dead-centre of the bobbin door - that's where the plunger is located. By gently manouvreing the screwdriver in, you might be able to release it - be careful, because it's possible that the retaining circlip has dropped-off the bottom, in which case, the plunger and its pressure spring might fly out when the bobbin door opens. If that doesn't work, you could try unscrewing and removing the stitch plate and, again, with a small flat-bladed screwdriver, see if you can release the free-arm cover catch that's next to the top-left-hand-side of the bobbin door, but that's a very risky approach, because the feed-dogs will be in the way and you dont want to mangle any of the hook/shuttle parts etc. You need to find out why the bobbin door is not seated properly - it may be that the bottom hinge that also carries the hook/shuttle retainer has come out of the left-hand hinge mount in the free-arm. Good Luck.

I have a Bernina Activa 230 and my bobbin case is stuck in the machine and it wont come out, Someone Please help me what do I do?

can you unlatch the ring cover device? there is a little release lever on the left just inside the bobbin area which secures a hinged silver square called hook race cover, if you unlatch this, flop the cover forward, then the bobbin case and shuttle should all come out as well.

Today, my 830 stopped sewing and the bobbincase opened after a whirring noise during embroidery. I adjusted the thread and tried again. It continues to open and is activated in regular sewing mode when I...

It may be that the door closure sensor has got fluff in it, so the machine thinks that the bobbin door has been opened - the automatic bobbin preenter will then rotate the bobbin case out, and open the door in the process. You should probably have this looked-at by a properly certificated 830 service engineer - it's a very complicated machine, however, you could try VERY CAREFULLY, with a long fine paintbrush, just brushing any fluff and lint out of the sensor. Switch the machine OFF with the bobbin door closed. Open the bobbin door and look on the left-hand-side of the hinged-bottom of the door - you'll see a semicircular black plastic part secured to the left-hand end - it's got a couple of notches in it. When you close the door, these notches interrupt a couple of light sensors on a small circuit-board that you can probably just see behind the white plastic cover. With a fine brush, with long bristles, VERY VERY CAREFULLY, push the bristles through where the semicircular plastic part moves between the sensors, and with luck, this will remove any fluff that's causing the problem. If that fails, it is possible that the 'console mechanism' has gone out of alignment - this seems to be rather common on these machines and can happen if you've had a needle crunch which sometimes happens if you apply too much pressure to the thread when starting an embroidery - in that case, the only solution is to have the machine looked-at professionally. Good Luck

Low bobbin thread indicator not working on Pfaff 2044. Using clear bobbins. Is there a lamp or sensor that can be replaced?

Have you tried to take out the bobbin case, close the door, and see if the indicator comes on? If the indicator works with no bobbin case, then the machine is working. You may have what we call foggy bobbins. Bobbins that are scratched or cloudy. Make sure you try a new one.Also check for lint blockage in the hook area or the bobbin case. If it still doesn't work, the indicator on the door may have gotten pushed in. That sometimes happens. You should feel the indicator eye protruding out a little bit from the door. You can open the area where the indicator is on the door to push it back out. Sometimes the indicator wire behind the hook gets broken. That would require you do disassemble the freearm cover area. Start with the simple things first.

Hi, do you know where on a Bernina 1008 I can undo the top cover to clean the inside and get a ball thread out? I have worked out out to clean the bobbin area now I would like to clean the top...

Open the front door and, looking at the insides with the door hinge on the left, up inside, slightly to the left is a small shiny knob. If you press the knob, it releases a catch in the middle of the top arm and the whole cover will just come off. Replacing is just a question of pressing it back in place and the spring-loaded pin will retain the cover in place. There are no retaining screws.
