When my needle goes down into where bobbin is held,the needle hits the bobbin case.

Hello Marketa
Check that the correct system of needle is being used in the sewing machine.
Unscrew needle screw, make sure that the needle is pushed all the way up, tighten needle in place.
Check if needle is still hitting bobbin case.
If still hitting: remove bobbin case and insert again making sure that it is positioned correctly.
If problem still persists, please let me know the make and model of your sewing machine.
Please give me a 'thumbs up' if this was useful.
Happy Stitching

Noisy bobbin

If you bought new bobbins, they might not be quite round. This happens on mmetal bobbins.Another thing that happens is that you may have broken a needle and bent your bobbin case enough that the bobbin hits it as the shuttle goes around. If neither of these is the case, you might try to put a drdrop of oil in the "race" , which is the small grove in the piece that revolves around the bobbin case as you sew.

Singer 2263 needle hitting something in bobbin area (loud thunk) and needle moves

try taking the bobbin out and putting it back in the bobbin
case if it's a top loading bobbin
if it's a side or front loading bobbin make sure the bobbin case is
inserted correctly
if the bobbin and bobbin case are inserted correctly then
it sounds like the sewing machine could have a timing
problem and needs to be checked at a sewing machine shop

The needle keeps hitting the bobbin holder, it has actually nicked it. I cannot sew, the bobbin thread just jams up in a bundle and the machine jams

Check to make sure the needle is up all the way into the clamp. If the bobbin case now has sharp edges from the impact. polish away the sharpness with an emery board or simular. Once a needle is hit it canot be used again so always use a fresh needle.

I took out parts of bobbin to clean and when put them back the needle hits the metal of the bobbin case and i cant sew. it doesnt seem to be properly aligned.

Perhaps remove the bobbin case and check that you have put it back correctly. Check with the sewing machine manual to see how it is done correctly. Make sure that the top of the bobbin case is at the top of the bobbin case holder and make sure you change the needle as it will probably be dull or bent from hitting the metal of the bobbin case.

Bobbin Casing keeps coming out.

This machine has had 2 different updates for the bobbin case, the second also included a new bobbin visor and the metal bracket that holds the bobbin case in proper position. This sis located at about the 5 oclock position looking straight on at the machine. These new pieces must be adjusted and i am sorry the exact position cannot be explained. It must have just the right amount of movement between bobbin case and bracket. The bracket also must be positioned just right.
