Needle hitting bobbin case

Try a brand new needle. Make sure it is the right needle for the machine and that it is installed correctly.

If the needle continues to hit the bobbin case, then there is a needle/hook timing issue. Take it for service.

How to check if your sewing machine is in time.

Raise the presser foot, remove the bobbin case, remove the needle plate. Make certain your correct needle is installed right, with no thread in the needle, rotate the hand wheel until you see the needle at the very bottom of its travel. The hook should be just at the edge of the needle or a fraction from it. As the hook and the needle pass the needle has to start its travel up in order to create a hoop of thread for the hook to catch. If there is not enough travel for a sufficiant hoop to be made the machine may sew but would skip stitches or may not sew at all. If it hits it to late this can cause the hook to split the thread.

How to correct timming on Bernina 930

Rare timing problems with the 930. I created this technical document for Bernina dealers in 1986. Hope this helps.
Also to check for the timing of loop lift, please see the enclosed photos. Note that the needle position is in the right hand position with the hook advancing so that the tip of the hook point is exactly flush with the right side of the needle. (Photos are showing the hook point for training purposes only). These observations and adjustments are always checked with the hand-wheel turned in the DOM (direction of motion). If loop lift timing is off as per the Tech sheet enclosed, the tool for correction is still available.

Timing the needle

That isn't the timing. If the hook is hitting the needle the hook is too far left - or close to the needle. It's adjustable by loosening the set screw at the base of the hook and by gently tapping the hook away from the needle. You want the hook to be close enough to the needle to pick up the thread loop that's formed just as the needle bar is rising.
