It may be better to just buy a replacement bobbin case. It will be factory pre-set.

Make sure the stitch length is set high enough to actually move the fabric, ie #2 or higher. Are the feed dogs in the raised position or have they been dropped for darning?

If it's an older mechanical machine, it may need a very thorough cleaning and Oiling. Old oil will cause the machine parts to seize.

"Not working" isn't enough information. Please provide what you were doing, how the machine reacted... what are the symptoms?

Sewing Machines | Answered 1 hour ago

Over time, and especially when not used, there is a likelihood of dust and old oil forming a sort of glue, or clag....

Remove the needle for safety, then, when you have the setting on Zig zag, gently push the needle arm to the opposite side of the zig stitch.......release the needle arm, and if it springs back quickly, it is fine, if it moves slowly, or almost not at all, then the clag needs removing with application of few drops of methylated spirit to start, at the sort of piston affair that shifts needle arm L & R .....move the needle arm back & forth until it frees up, a drop of oil to finish.........if almost seized, may require leaving overnight after using a penetrating lubricant if it is really resistant....I have had them on the bench for 3 days with manual manipulation a few times each day before they finally come good.

you may need to convert files to bit map (bmp)
if bmp doesn't work you can find lots of free downloadable programes that will allow you to convert your jpeg/gif files into other forms. Play with the convertions and you should find one that can be read by your machine. All software you would require should have come with your machine.
