to check the asembly
do a needle /hook timing check
with the needle fully down the hook of the bobbin carrier should be almost at the needle
as the needle starts to come up the hook should be just at the needle eye or slightly above it but not over it
Without knowing the make & model machine, we are basically unable to assist. Probably, the best thing you can do is download a copy of the user instructions:
Make Model manual
There should be an access cover to the bobbin area. Most likely, the needle is either stuck inside the bobbin area or has dropped through to the bottom of the machine. As for installing the bobbin & bobbin case, the manual should have instructions for your to follow.
You didn't state what model you have, and that makes it tougher to help you.
I'm going to take a guess here that the part that fell out is a silver U shaped part located on the right near the bottom of the bobbin basket (holds the case). If that's the case, it's called a "cushion spring" and can just be reinserted by hand. It is part of the assembly that prevents the case from moving while the thread is unspooling from the bobbin during operation.
Hi This machine uses the standard class 15 bobbin. It sits inside a bobbin case that has a finger that needs to be located in a retaining slot. It the whole lot, bobbin, case, hook assembly and retainer have come out simply turn the machine over so that these parts can be fitted downwards. fit the hook, then the retainer and lock it into position. Put bobbin into case pull thread under spring. Lift tab on case and put it over the hook's central pin and release tab. It should now be locked in position
If you need to replace these two parts, turn the handwheel until the hook race is in the left position. Then put in the hook (thickest part down) and then the hook cover (the side with the notch towards the machine and facing up). Rotate the hook retaining arms back towards the center of the hook cover to lock it in place. Now you should be able to put the bobbin case back in. Since this is a part that needs to be oiled regularly, wipe it out with a soft cloth and put 1-2 drops of sewing machine oil at point 6 (just to the right of center) in the shuttle before you replace the hook.
Make sure the needle is in the highest position before you try putting the bobbin holder in. The bobbin holder has a metal 'finger' which fits into a 'slot' in the housing and it only goes in if you have the needle up.
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!
