Question about Sewing Machines
The needle clamp release button which is red and which alows the needles to swing forward for threading is stuck and will not swing back into place. it seems that the spring (has red button to release) has come loose . I have removed the needles so they wont catch on the face plate but still no help.
SOURCE: Bottom thread will not catch
Unplug the machine and remove the needle plate so that the bobbin case if fully exposed. Lift out the bobbin case and the cup that it sets in will be visible. Locate the "hook" on this cup. It is a finger with a sharp point at the upper edge of the cup. The hook is what grabs the thread from the needle while sewing.
If the hook catches the thread from the needle, put everything back together and try threading again.

Try and loosen the screw, and use a magnet to pullout the broken piece. It likely slightly bent in there so you may need a pair of tweezers as well
