SOURCE: Bernina 180 Bobbin case spinning
Its called the bobbin stopper. Pop off your needle plate by pressing on the marked corner. In the back on the left you will see a small allen screw which must have come loose. Position the bobbin stopper in place and tighten that screw. If it already is tight, loosen it and reposition the bobbin stopper in the notch and tighten it back up.

Hi, it may be possible that you put the bobbin in the case upside down and its turning the wrong way. Flip it over and try it. When looking at the bobbin in the case from the back and you pull the thread, it should turn clockwise.
Hope this helped as anything else may take a tech to diagnose.

The housing you are pointing out is the rotary hook asm. This is suppose to have a little clearance there, the clearance allows for the lower thread to come up. In order to make the machine run smoother in that area, is to put a drop of the benina only oil

You need to sew the first stitch slowly. Lower the needle by hand and take up carefully. Pull the needle thread up and the bobbin thread should be caught in the formed loop and come with it. Pull them both to the back of the machine and sew.
