Question about Sewing Machines
The bobbin case feels quite secure when I have positioned and locked it in place following instruction manual but as soon as I try to sew it comes loose again.
SOURCE: Bobbin Case
I'm having a similar problem today. I took out the bobbin case and when I went to put it back in, the whole system locks up. I've tired cleaning, changing needle taking the metal plate and piece that holds bobbin case out and put it all back in after cleaning. Nothing. My symptom is I can't get a complete stitch, the needle goes down, the whole deal acts like it will work and as soon as the arm of the bobbin case gets to 8 o' clock on the gears, It jams and won't hardly move. I cannot pull the bobbin case out easily after this. Perhaps there is someone out there that can help us!

Update: Today I took my machine in to get serviced - they replaced the metal bobbin I was using with a plastic one, that was a little less rattley inside the bobbin case, replaced the needle with a new, universal one, and changed out the thread with something a little higher quality. They also adjusted the spring holding the bobbin case slightly, and now it seems to work fine. I'm not sure how long it will last, but for now I'm good.

Take the bobbin case out. Then when you go to put it in, realize there are 2 ways to get it. You have found one way. The other way is first look in the the slot with a flashlight before you insert it. There is a flat piece of metal the bracket needs to be slid under as it is inserted. This acts like a spring making it tight

SOURCE: Bobbin thread won't come up.
I had a received a sewing machine and it was doing the same thing.
I brought it to a sewing place to get it checked out.
They said the timing is off and they fixed it bought it cost me $68.00.
