I hope to God nobody else pays more for a repair than the machine is worth.
It's ridiculous to spend $300 for that repair since the machine is available almost everywhere for way under $200. You could have thrown that one in the trash and bought a new one cheaper than the repair!!
I paid $129 for mine, had the same problem with two, yes, two of them, and sent them back and was sent another which so far is working fine. There seems to be a flaw in the engineering of that machine since so many people are experiencing the same problem. The machines DO have a warranty so please, please, be careful of unscrupulous repair people. Oh, I'm sorry but I need to mention that I bought my machine from eBay and it was a refurbished machine sold by Ken Sewing and Vacumm in Muscle Shoals, Al. They stand behind their products and were very nice to deal with, they even paid for the return shipping on the two that I returned. Hope this helps y'all.

First thing to check is are you using the correct needle, if it is too long this will hit the bobbin holder.
If the needle is the correct one, for some reason your timing is out or the needle bar has dropped lower than it should be.
I can't explain on here how to re-time as it is complicated.
If the timing is out it is very unusual as the working parts are locked in position.
Take out the thread, remove the needle plate and turn the machine over by hand watching the needle and see if it is actually hitting the bobbin or bobbin holder.
