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.

Open up the bobbin case and remove the bobbin and case. There may be something catching on the hook (random thread) that is preventing the motion. The bobbin case could be off-kilter as well. If that is not it, take the cover off the sewing head and see what is blocking the mechanical parts of the levers.

Why does my cs6000i the needle hits the bobbin case put nicks in case and then thread snags in the bad area

If you are talking about the bobbin case (housing), it may be inserted incorrectly. Remove it and put it in again, or the needle isn't seated correctly. Once the bobbin case is damaged, do not use it anymore or you will continue to have problems. If you mean the bobbin, change bobbins and see if you continue to have problems, as you might have the incorrect size.

when you turn the machine off and on again, that clears the computer and helps it start correctly..
but if there is a problem, when you continue sewing it will show up
then check for the normal things like
rethreading the machine top and bobbin
new needle
make sure the bobbin is inserted correctly into the bobbin case
clean under the needle plate and in the bobbin area for lint

The needle is getting stuck in the fabric on my Bernina 1008.

Sounds like it needs to be serviced. Needle should NOT be hitting the bobbin case.

Since you don't want to have it serviced, you might check to make sure the bobbin case is inserted correctly and that the bobbin rotates clockwise as you are looking directly at it in the case. Also, is you needle compatible with the fabric?

My needle jams when it hits the tray the bobbin case is in. It looks as if the timings off because just to the right of where my needle hits is a dip in the tray. Almost as if the needle's too long. I've...

If this is a drop-in/horizontal bobbin, raise the needle to it's highest position. Remove the bobbin case then replace it so it fits snugly into the shuttle. Hand walk to see if the case moves freely in a circle. If it stops, it is not positioned correctly. You do not have to have a needle in to test this.

Once you are sure the bobbin case is correctly in place, re-install the needle. Hand Walk to make sure the case turns without any interference.

If the needle continues to hit, then the machine needs to go into the shop for service.

There is a DIY for adjusting the timing of the hook if you wish to try the adjustment on your own.
