Make sure there is no fabric or thread on the bobbin case shaft. Needle has to be in up position.

Yamata fy 5318 manual

I just received my FY5318. The manual has OK diagrams, but the text is Chinese. The Consew 205RB-1 is the same exact machine as the FY5318 and comes with the same manual but translated into English. It is downloadable from the Consew website.

Needle thread will not pick up bobbin thread tried everything

Generally, this is because the needle is inserted wrong or because it's bent. In the first case, the top of the needle (called the shank) has a flat side-this has to be inserted so it faces the back or away from you.
In the second case, when a bent needle stops the top thread from picking up the bobbin thread. Even if you think your needle is fine, change it to see if this solves the problem.

Modle 8072 bobbin thread won't engage machine makes cick-clack noise when I press on presser foot

Have no idea what brand of machine you are using.

If this is a rotary hook bobbin (side or front insert; metal bobbin case),
there should be a lever on the back of the bobbin case.

Raise the needle to it's highest point and then lift and hold the lever of the bobbin case open as you insert it into the shuttle.

If there is an arm on the bobbin case, it should be pointing up toward the machine.

When the bobbin case clicks into place, it should work as designed.

The needle keeps breaking in my Yamata FY 910

The bobbin case rests on the lip of the hook and is is held into place by the position bracket. The position bracket is located at about 5 o'clock and has a small square end with a buffer spring. It must be positioned to hold the bobbin case securely and also allow the thread to pass through freely. It may be out of adjustment but may not.

If the bobbin case has turned, it is very likely to have suffered damage as it is made of a soft carbon fiber material. It not polished off, these damaged areas can snag the thread and jam the machine and create tension problems. Some gouges, burrs and needle punctures can be carefully sanded but you may need a new bobbin case. Use a 1500 grit sandpaper to smooth off the rough edges.
